Price

The Diesel trims of Tata Venture are priced between Rs. 5,02,062/- to Rs. 6,05,707/-.

Exterior

Venture is a new generation minivan, which is a little different from the other vans present in the India market. With the utility features that most vans have, it also has a defining style and a nice aura about it and does not look clumsy on the road. The GX variant of Venture clearly stands out in its looks as it has many more defining features than the other two variants. Wheels have stylish caps, body coloured bumpers and ORVMs are the other exceptional features of GX model. The windows of Tata Venture GX model are made of tinted glass to protect the passengers inside from the scorching heat of the sun.

Interior

The interiors of Venture have been designed by considering ample space for the 8 passengers travelling in it. Starting from the rear, Venture has more than sufficient space to carry the luggage of people travelling in this minivan. The third row of the minivan can be folded as per convenience. The 8 seater has two rows of three seats each facing the front. The 7 seater comes with 1 row of three seats and 2 rows of 2 seats. Decent legroom is available in every version for a person of normal stature. The inside of Venture is designed by dual tone fabrics of Grey and Linen for LX and VX models and barle beige & linen for the GX model. The dashboard of this minivan has air conditioning controls and a music player with AUX feature and 4 speakers. Rear AC vents are also available in the EX and GX model for people sitting at the back. The 3 spoke steering wheel and the good quality materials used in the seats increase the aesthetics of the van. Other interior features are power windows, 12 Volt DC port in front of LX and EX models and both in front and back for GX model.

Engine and Transmission

The car comes equipped with a 4-cylinder 1.4-Litre diesel engine with Turbo charger and intercooler technology, which has a displacement of 1405 cc. This engine is capable of generating a maximum power of 71 PS and a peak torque of 135 Nm. The duo technology used in the engine enhances its cooling performance, thus helping it give a better output. The transmission of Tata Venture works on a 5 speed + 1 Syncromeshed gearbox. It ensures a smooth gear shift while driving.

Performance and Handling

The engineers of Tata Motors have worked very hard on the diesel engine of Tata Venture to ensure a good fuel economy. The mentioned fuel economy of Venture is 15.42 kmpl which is best in its class considering the fact that this minivan is going to carry a lot of weight while travelling. The suspensions installed in Venture allow a smooth ride for the passengers inside on bumpy roads. Front tyres come with Independent strut type anti roll bar suspensions and the rear tyres have multi link suspensions with coil springs. Apart from the suspensions, the tyres have better traction quality to give better handling and effective driving on the hilly and slippery roads. Drive easy technology is also present in this minivan which provides better gear shifting and reduces clutch effort while driving.

Braking System

Mileage

The 1405 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 14 kmpl in city and 16 kmpl on highways.

Safety Features

Considering the low price of this minivan, one cannot expect a lot of safety features in Venture. The engineers of Tata motors have still managed to develop decent safety features within the price limit. Side impact beams are present to reduce the impact of collision. Front crash reinforcements are also used as protection. Another add on to these safety features is the collapsible power steering which can absorb a lot of damage in an accident and can prove to be a life saver. The GX variant of Venture comes with some other features like engine immobilizer, front fog lamps and reverses guide system for better and easy parking. A key less entry feature is also included in the GX model of the Venture.

Verdict

Tata Venture turns out to be a stylish van which can also be used as a MPV and it gives decent performance on roads. It is perfect for commercial purposes and with its price range it’s a minivan which will attract a lot of people. So if you need a transport vehicle for your business and you don’t want to spend a huge amount of money on it, then it is worth considering.

Competition

In India, Venture has only 2 competitors who have been in the market for many years. First is Maruti Omni which is the most preferred minivan in India. The other one is Maruti Eeco which has made an unshakeable position in the market of minivans in the recent years. Due to the CNG versions of Omni and Eeco, Venture has still not made a respectable position in the India market.
