Maruti Suzuki Fronx Vs Hyundai Venue – Specs comparison

Hyundai Venue N

The sub-four metre SUV segment was already dominated by cars like Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Brezza, Hyundai Venue, Kia Sonet, and others. Now, Maruti has introduced a new Nexa product, Fronx to go up against the competitors in this segment in India.

Meanwhile, Hyundai is known to offer feature-loaded vehicles at a very aggressive price point, which helps the brand drive sales numbers and gain more market share. But with the latest introduction of the Maruti Suzuki Fronx, this could change. So, here is a short comparison of the two SUVs.
