The Hyundai BlueLink is the company's global connected cars technology that will be introduced in India on the Hyundai Venue. It will offer a suite of 33 advanced features, out of which 10 will be India-specific. The BlueLink setup features an in-built and tamper-proof device that is powered by a Vodafone-sourced eSIM and a Cloud-based Voice Recognition platform from Global AI (Artificial Intelligence) Company.

The device will offer real-time traffic information, satellite-guided navigation and Live Local Search in collaboration with a global online maps provider. Moreover, the advanced equipment will provide an Interactive Voice Recognition feature that is capable of recognising the local English accent. The software has been fine-tuned to support various accents found in different parts of the country.

The Hyundai Venue will be simultaneously revealed in India and at the New York Motor Show in mid-April. The new model will launch in India in May 2019 and will be seen locking horns with the Maruti Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon, and Mahindra XUV300. The new model is expected to be available in three engine variants -  a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol, a 1.4-litre naturally aspirated petrol and a 1.4-litre turbo-diesel motor.
