Hyundai Venue will get two petrol engines, which are the 1.2-litre unit and the 1.0-litre Kappa T-GDI unit. Speaking about the turbo engine first, it is a three-cylinder, direct-injection unit which makes about 118 bhp and 172 Nm of peak torque. The good news is that Hyundai will be offering a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox as an option along with a five-speed manual unit. And this will be the only engine which will have an automatic gearbox option. Hyundai has managed to keep the engine compact by integrating the exhaust manifold to the cylinder head, which the company says, improves fuel efficiency at higher RPMs. The other petrol engine is the 1.2-litre four-cylinder motor which is available on the Hyundai i20 as well. It is naturally aspirated and it makes 82 bhp and 114 Nm, similar to the i20 and will be paired with the 5-speed manual gearbox. For a complete picture, read our specifications comparison story of the Hyundai Venue with its rivals which are Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and the Mahindra XUV300.
