Unlike other major automakers, Hyundai has decided to continue offering diesel engines in the BS6 era. They have updated both petrol as well as diesel engine to meet BS6 norms.
The BS6 Hyundai Venue has been launched in two petrol and 1 diesel engine option. The petrol variant comes in at a starting price of Rs.6.7 lakhs while the new 1.5 liter diesel variant gets a base price of Rs.8.09 lakhs, up Rs.55,000 over their BS4 counterparts. All prices are ex-sh.
Unlike other leading automakers, Hyundai India has stated that it will continue to offer diesel engines in the BS6 regime, which gets off to a start from 1st April 2020. The Hyundai Venue hence gains a 1.5 liter diesel engine which takes the place of the outgoing 1.4 liter diesel engine which powered its earlier counterpart.

This new 1.5 liter BS6 diesel engine also powers the Kia Seltos and has been de-tuned for the Hyundai Venue. On the Kia Seltos, the engine offers 115 hp power and 250 Nm torque while on the Hyundai Venue it will make around 100 hp power and 230 Nm torque mated to a 6 speed manual transmission. It is this same engine which will also power the next gen Hyundai Creta, Verna facelift and Kia Sonet, with details of power and torque figures to be announced closer to launch date.
Hyundai Venue will also be powered by BS6 compliant petrol engine versions of its 1.0 liter turbo petrol and 1.2 liter naturally aspirated petrol. The 1.0 liter petrol offers 125 PS power and 172 Nm torque while the 1.2 liter engine is capable of 83 PS power and 113 Nm torque. The turbo petrol engine gets mated to a 7 speed DCT. The Venue will continue to compete with the Maruti Vitara Brezza which recently lost its diesel engine, while it will also take on the Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300 and Ford EcoSport.
