Kia Seltos’s 1.5 Litre four-cylinder diesel engine produces 115 PS and 250 Nm of peak torque. The official figures for Venue have not been revealed yet. We are expecting the engine to produce around 100 PS and 220 Nm of torque, slightly more than its existing engine.
On the other hand, it continues with its 1.2 Litre four-cylinder petrol engine and the 1.0 Litre turbo-petrol motor. The engines produce 83 PS/113 Nm and 115 PS/172 Nm of torque, respectively. Hyundai offers an automatic 7-speed DCT only with the turbo motor.
Venue’s main competitor is Maruti Vitara Brezza which recently lost its diesel engine. While, there’s popularity even for Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and Ford EcoSport, the former two are the main driving force behind the segment.
