The Venue is the winner of the esteemed Indian Car of The Year (ICOTY) award for 2020. The awards night, held by the ICOTY committee, concluded on the evening of December 18, 2019 in Delhi. Dr. Raghupati Singhania, Chairman & Managing Director, JK Tyre & Industries Limited, presented the ICOTY trophy to Hyundai.
