-1.0-litre and 1.2-litre petrol
The Hyundai Venue has been unveiled in India and it will be launched here on 21 May. It will be offered with three engine options- Two petrol and one diesel. We have already looked at the features as well as the exterior design of the Venue and you can read about that here.
The petrol engines comprise a 1.2-litre unit and, for the first time, a turbocharged 1.0-litre gasoline direct injection unit. The former is the unit found in the Grand i10 and Elite i20 and produces 81bhp/114Nm while the GDI unit produces 118bhp/171Nm.
There’s only a five-speed manual for the 1.2-litre engine while the latter is offered with a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual clutch automatic.
The diesel is the 1.4-litre unit offered with the base Creta models as well as the Elite i20. It produces 89bhp/219Nm and is offered only with a six-speed manual. When launched, the top-of-the-line 1.0-litre GDI engine model (most likely an SX (O)) will take on the likes of the Ford Ecosport S which is powered by the 1.0-litre Ecoboost engine producing 124bhp/170Nm, with a six-speed manual only.
