Upcoming Hyundai Venue compact SUV's expected engine and gearbox combinations
OVERDRIVE speculates that the upcoming Hyundai Venue compact SUV, slated for an April 17 unveil will get a wide selection of engine and gear combination. The SUV will possibly get two petrol and one diesel engine which will be mated to two manual and one dual-clutch automatic in various permutaions.
One of the petrols, and of most interest to us, is the new T-GDI 1.0 litre turbo. This three-cylinder motor is expected to be available in its higher output iteration, which makes 120PS and 172 Nm. This motor already does duty in cars like the i20 and Kona internationally and is now set for an India debut. This is expected to be paired with two gearboxes, a new seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and a six-speed manual.
The other petrol motor, for lower-spec cars, will be the 1.2 litre petrol as seen on various Hyundai cars in India. The four cylinder motor is available on cars like the Grand i10 and India-spec Elite i20 and makes 83PS and 116 Nm. Only a five-speed manual gearbox is expected with this.
The single diesel option could be the 1.4 litre four cylinder turbo petrol motor which puts out 90PS and 220 Nm. This motor is already available on the Verna and Creta, and like in those cars will be available with a six-speed manual. No auto option is expected, possibly to keep costs in check.
Through various sketch and spy images we already have quite a clear idea of what the Venue will look like. The Venue's gets design elements like a large honeycomb grille, split headlamps, and a slightly stocky, short wheelbase look. The interiors of the Venue will also see a few bits previously unseen on Hyundais here. While the steering wheel and instrumentation seem like a regular Hyundai fare, unique is the new centre console arrangement. New here is the layout of the infotainment and the climate control knobs with integrated displays.
