In my report of the Venue last month, I’d said that it had been a strange year, and I have to say that the feeling still continues. To add to the feeling of general melancholy and anxiety, the monsoons have now arrived, and with some fury. Now, don’t get me wrong, I truly enjoy the rains, but having been preoccupied with the COVID crisis, and also because they truly couldn’t care less, the municipal authorities have, once again, failed to clear the drains in Delhi NCR. It’s almost as if every year they get surprised that there exists something called a monsoon season.
As a result, the roads in my daily commute are flooded every now and then. But that actually doesn’t bother me that much, given that with the Venue’s 195mm of ground clearance and large 16-inch wheels, I’m able to cross waterlogged areas without a fuss.
Other than that though, my commute has been pretty easy, and the Venue continues to be stellar in its performance. I quite enjoy how effective the air-conditioning system’s performance is and how effectively the climate control system controls the temperature inside the cabin.
