Hyundai Venue, the subcompact SUV from the South Korean carmaker, has been doing really well in the market. The vehicle was launched in the last week of May, and it managed to outsell its arch rival Maruti Vitara Brezza in July 2019. The subcompact SUV received over 50,000 bookings within 2 months of its arrival.
The Hyundai Venue has been made available with 2 petrol (1.0L and 1.2L) and a diesel (1.4L) engine options. At the launch of the new Hyundai Grand i10 Nios, the carmaker confirmed that it will discontinue the 1.4L and 1.6L diesel engine from its product lineup once the BS6 emission norms kicks in in April, 2020. Both engines will be replaced with a new BS6-ready 1.5L diesel engine that also powers the Kia Seltos.
The new 1.5L oil burner could be offered with or without VGT (variable geometry turbocharger) technology replacing the 1.6L and 1.4L diesel powertrains respectively. The VGT improves low speed torque performance of the diesel engine, while reducing turbocharger lag and driving EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) flow. Hyundai’s new diesel motor with VGT will deliver power close to 90bhp with 220Nm of torque. Read – 2020 Hyundai Creta To Come With 3 Engines
The Hyundai Venue will receive the 1.5L without VGT motor, replacing the existing 1.4L oil burner. The same powertrain will also be used in the new-generation Hyundai i20, which is due for next year.
