  • Hyundai Venue's 1.4L and 1.6L diesel engines to be discontinued.
  • The new BS-VI compliant 1.5L diesel engine to be borrowed from Kia Seltos.
  • It will be introduced before April 2020 in place of 1.4L and 1.6L engines.  

Hyundai Venue was officially launched nearly two months back on June 21, 2019, in a price range of Rs 6.50-11.10 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi) in the country. The sub-compact SUV has already been a super success for the South-Korean automaker as it has registered over 50,000 bookings since its launch. However, the company, at the launch of Grand i10 NIOS, said that it will introduce a new BS-VI compliant 1.5L diesel engine with the Venue before April 1, 2020, while the present 1.4L and 1.6L diesel engines will be discontinued. For those asking, the BS-VI compliant 1.5L diesel engine in question will officially debut today with the Kia Seltos in the Indian market.

The 1.5L diesel engine with BS-VI emission norms is offered in two modes: with VGT (Variable Geometry Turbo) or without VGT. The one with VGT develops top power of 115bhp and peak torque of 250Nm while the one without VGT generates maximum power output of 90bhp and highest torque performance of 220Nm. It is being learnt that the 1.5L engine with VGT will replace the bigger 1.6L motor while the naturally aspirated 1.5L engine will fill in the shoes of the smaller 1.4L diesel engine. Though sources have revealed that Venue will initially get the non-VGT 1.5L diesel engine. In addition, the new-gen i20 and lower variants of Creta and Verna will also share this very engine.

The current 1.4L diesel engine with Hyundai Venue belts out 90bhp while it is linked to a 6-speed manual gearbox. We expect the new 1.5L engine to be introduced in and around March 2020 in India.
