Hyundai Venue new diesel engine might launch before the BS6 emission deadline. This 1.5L engine will be borrowed from the Kia Seltos but will be detuned to achieve big on the mileage.
Hyundai Venue is the best selling car in the compact SUV segment beating the popular Maruti Suzuki. The car garnered over 50,000 bookings in just 60 days and 35% of the sales have been popular for the petrol automatic trim. It comes with a 7-speed automatic transmission.
Another best of the lot is the 1.4-litre turbocharged diesel engine on the Hyundai Venue. This engine does duty on the Elite i20 and lower variants of Creta and Verna. It generates 90 bhp with a peak torque of 220 Nm. Transmission option includes a 6-speed manual gearbox.
Recently, at the launch of Hyundai’s new Grand i10 Nios, the officials stated that for future they will likely to discontinue that 1.4L and 1.6L oil burner. And they will borrow the 1.5L diesel engine from the Kia Seltos.
That makes it safe to say that the recently launched Hyundai Venue can get the 1.5L turbocharged diesel engine. And for those asking about the performance figures then we expect it to be just exactly the same that is 90 bhp.
The 1.5-litre diesel engine will be BS6 compliant and will be available in two states of tune – with or without a VGT. The 1.5-litre VGT will churn 115 bhp and 250 Nm of torque while the basic 1.5L will produce 90 bhp and 220 Nm of torque. That said, the standard engine will replace the lower capacity 1.4L engine while the VGT tuned engine will replace the 1.6L turbocharged diesel engine.
Hyundai Elite i20, Venue and lower variants of Creta and Verna will use the VGT version of the oil burner. For now, the compact SUV will continue with the 1.4L diesel engine. We expect the 1.5L diesel engine on the Venue will be seen once the BS6 emissions take place that is April 2020.
