The Hyundai Venue's diesel engine is the same old BS-IV 1.4-litre unit that has been doing duty in the Hyundai i20 and the Hyundai Verna for a long time now. This engine will be replaced with a BS-VI 1.5-litre unit by March 2020.

The BS-IV 1.4-litre diesel engine of the Venue will be replaced by a new, BS-VI 1.5-litre diesel engine.

On 21 May, Hyundai introduced a firecracker in the form of the Venue which went on to gather over 50,000 bookings in just 60 days of launch. The company has said that this is the fastest ever 50,000 bookings they have received within this span of time.

Hyundai plans to stop offering its BS-IV 1.4-and 1.6-litre diesel engines in India across the range. The company will commonly replace both the engines with a newly developed, BS-VI 1.5-litre diesel engine. Sister company Kia already offers this engine in the Seltos. At Hyundai, the next-gen i20, the Venue, the facelifted Verna and the next-gen Creta will get this engine. Some models will get it without VGT, and some with VGT, in the tuning of ~90 PS/220 Nm and 115 PS/250 Nm respectively. Hyundai will offer the non-VGT version in the Venue.

Currently, the Hyundai Venue is sold in the following mechanical configurations:

  • 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine (83PS/115Nm), 5-speed MT, FWD, 17.52 km/l
  • 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine (120PS/172Nm), 6-speed MT, FWD, 18.27 km/l
  • 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine (120PS/172Nm), 7-speed DCT, FWD, 18.15 km/l
