Hyundai Venue S+ vs Renault Kiger RXT

Recently I evaluated Renault Kiger as a potential car I could buy. I compared it with the other booking I had- Hyundai Venue S+. Here is a comparison of key features. Detailed analysis of Renault Kiger is published here. Kiger has already amassed 1-1.5 month waiting period due to its aggressive pricing in compact SUV segment, lots of features etc. Venue is a tried and tested option in this segment selling over 11000 units each month. Both have their pros and cons and a prospective buyer needs to decide which of these work best for him/her
