Dealers have started accepting the booking for the BSVI Hyundai Venue. The car will come with a new 1.5L diesel engine and some new features
The Venue is Hyundai Motor India Ltd's smallest SUV but it has been tasked with locking horns in the top-selling Maruti Vitara Brezza in the highly lucrative sub-4m compact SUV segment. With its proportionate design, feature-packed trim levels, and a plethora of engine options, Venue was even able to dethrone the Maruti Vitara Brezza as the best-seller. However, the Vitara Brezza is now all set to be launched anytime soon with an all-new BSVI-compliant petrol-powered engine. The Hyundai Venue, on the other hand, will continue to use its outgoing set of petrol engines, albeit, in a BSVI-compliant format. Also, ,the1.4L diesel engine has now made way for a 1.5L diesel engine that debuted in India on the Kia Seltos. The dealers have started accepting the bookings for the BSVI Hyundai Venue but details of the pricing aren't known at the moment.
The 1.5L turbo-diesel engine of the Kia Seltos produces 113PS of maximum power and 250Nm of peak torque. In Venue, it is expected to have its power and torque figures detuned to belt out 100 PS and 230 Nm. The diesel Venue will continue to come with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The other engine options that are offered with the Venue are two petrol engines. One is a 1.2L naturally aspirated unit, while other is a 1.0L turbocharged motor. These engines have a peak power and torque outputs of 83 PS and 120 PS, respectively.
With the updated engines, the Venue will get a few new features as well. All the variants will now get the AMS (Alternator Management System) as standard across E, S, SX, and SX(O). The SX and SX(O) will get the Tyre Pressure Monitoring System and USB charging as standard. The USB charging will be available with just DCT variant. Talking of the AMS, it is the technology, that cuts-off the current for charging the battery once it is fully charged.
In Venue, the engine will be available in a lower state of tune.
The prices for BS-4 variants start at Rs. 6.55 lakhs for the entry-level E variant and Rs. 7.80 lakhs for the base diesel variant. With the new engine and BS-6 update, the prices are expected to see a hike of around 30,000 Rupees for the petrol engine. However, the diesel being a completely new engine for the Hyundai cars let’s just expect that Hyundai prices the car aggressively.
