These engines get mated to either manual or automatic gearbox. Take a look at the detailed walkaround video of the new 2022 Hyundai Venue Facelift Diesel SX MT, credited to The Car Show.

Upon launch, it will continue to compete with Kia Sonet, Vitara Brezza, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300 in the 5 seater compact SUV segment.
