Hyundai Venue Diesel To Launch Soon
The Venue, Hyundai’s smallest SUV in India, will soon receive an upgrade in the shape of a more potent 1.5-liter diesel engine with 115 horsepower, which is the same engine that powers the Creta, Seltos, and the Sonet diesel-AT. A change has also been made to the equipment list. Let’s examine the new material in more detail.
The 1.5-liter diesel engine in the previous Venue produced 100 horsepower and 240 pound-feet of torque and had a fixed-geometry turbo. This engine will now be replaced by a more potent 1.5-liter Hyundai Venue Diesel with a variable-geometry turbocharger and 115 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque. There is currently no information about a diesel automatic; the Venue diesel will only be available with a 6-speed manual transmission. However, the Venue’s gasoline lineup has not changed.
Hyundai will also include a fuel-saving integrated starter generator (ISG) with start-stop functionality in the Venue, which is a first for a Hyundai in India. Be aware that the Kia Sonet’s 6-speed automated gearbox currently provides a 115hp tuning for the diesel engine.
The Hyundai Venue Diesel and i20 both use the 1.5-liter diesel engine that is no longer produced. Due to forthcoming Real Driving Emissions (RDE) rules, this engine, which has an FGT (Fixed geometry turbo), will shortly be phased out of manufacture. The Creta, Alcazar, and Seltos already employ the new 1.5-liter diesel engine, which will join the Venue lineup and features a more advanced variable-geometry turbo (VGT).
Utilizing economies of scale, using a VGT on the Venue will enable Hyundai to employ a single state of tune for the Venue, Creta, and Alcazar. In a similar way, Kia may use the same for the Sonet, Seltos, and Carens. As a result, Korean manufacturers would be able to avoid having to redesign the FGT variant in order to comply with the new emission standards.
The Hyundai Venue Diesel will be available in the same six trims as before: E, S, S+, S(O), SX, and SX (O). Hyundai has slightly rearranged the equipment list across the board, but the variation lineup is still the same.
The 16-inch alloy wheels with diamond cuts are currently only offered on the highest SX(O) model. It was formerly available on the Venue SX diesel. Additionally, the Venue S(O) petrol now comes standard with side airbags, while the top-spec SX(O) petrol only comes standard with curtain airbags. From SX forward, the Venue diesel is equipped with curtain airbags. Previously, only the top-tier Venue SX was equipped with side and curtain airbags (O). Additionally, the rear armrest and chair are gone from the Venue SX diesel.
When the upgraded SUV goes on sale in the coming weeks, pricing for the Venue diesel should be somewhat revised. The Kia Sonet, Maruti Brezza, Tata Nexon, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, and the incoming Maruti Suzuki Fronx are some of the major challenges.
