Watch the Hyundai Venue 1.0-litre Turbo Petrol run from standstill to 100 kmph in less than 11 second
Hyundai Venue’s launch is welcomed by a large number of customers. The new SUV is gaining higher and higher sales. At launch, Hyundai Venue is offered with three engine options, including a 1.2-litre petrol (83PS/115Nm) and a 1.4-litre diesel (90PS/220Nm) and all-new 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. While the first two engines are solely paired with a 5-speed manual and a 6-speed manual, respectively, only the 1.0-litre engine comes with two transmission options – a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Even though the engine has the smallest displacement, the 1.0-litre petrol engine is actually the most powerful engine in the lot with the maximum power of 120 PS. The peak torque of this engine rates at 172 Nm. Along with the dual-clutch automatic gearbox, this engine could offer a fantastic experience. In the following video, we could find out how the appealing specifications work out in real life, particularly in 0-100 kmph sprint.
The 0-100 kmph test is sprinted by the Dream Cars team. The test is done at night so we could barely see the car, instead, the team has recorded the instrument cluster. In the beginning, the Venue starts off confidently all the way to 50 kmph. It takes less than four seconds to pin the 50 kmph speed. It becomes slower when revving from 50 to 100 kmph. Approximately, the Venue 1.0-litre petrol takes around 10.8 to 10.85 seconds to propel from standstill to the 100 kmph mark, which is quite remarkable for a sub-four-meter SUV.
After that, the driver has stretched Venue all the way to the maximum speed of around 180 kmph. Apparently, Hyundai Venue not only provides us with the fancy specifications but it also works impressively in real life. However, the test is not official and it was not done in a standard condition. The official record could be even higher than this.
Hyundai Venue’s 1.0-litre turbo petrol could churn out 120 PS and 172 Nm
About the fuel economy, the 1.0-litre petrol engine registers the mileage of 18.27 with the 6-speed manual gearbox and 18.12 kmpl with the 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. Currently, the price of the 1.0-litre petrol engine with 6-speed manual range starts at Rs. 8.21 lakh. The top-spec SX+ with 7-speed dual-clutch transmission is priced at Rs. 11. 10 lakh.
With such an excellent performance, the 1.0-litre three-cylinder petrol engine could be considered as one of the most capable engines in its class. It could offer performance on par or even better Ford EcoSport’s iconic 1.0-litre EcoBoost petrol engine (125 PS/170 Nm).
