The new 1.5-liter diesel engine is received by Hyundai Venue (Korean carmaker’s subcompact SUV). This new engine will also be introduced with the new-generation Creta as it does its job at the Kia Altos. Although the only Hyundai Venue powering 2020 is the disconnected version of the same motor.
Our sources confirm that Hyundai has already begun delivering the 1.5 diesel model to its distributors around the country. Indeed, the company stopped its 1,4-liter Diesel Venue and Elite i20 engine, which was previously in use. The 1,4-liter diesel stock is nearly finished with only a few customer units.
While the prices of new diesel variants of the BS6 Venue must still not be announced, our distributors confirmed that the current model would exceed Rs 30 000. And if so, we think that there’s not much price difference. Even now, since only oil is available at the Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, the Venue case among buyers is still stronger. But, what is unfortunate is that no automated diesel version is accessible from now.
The diesel engine is completely new, but with the same natural 1.2 liter Kappa and 1.0-liter turbocharged petrol engines the petrol versions remain unchanged. The 1,0-liter turbo oil complied with BS6 from Day 1, and some hardware modifications were issued to conform with the BS6 Guidelines as well. This culminated in a price increase of nearly Rs 15,000. The power output figures, however, are not altered.
We witnessed the launch of the long-awaited second-generation Hyundai Creta at the 2020 Delhi Auto Expo, which was scheduled to start on 17th March. A revised platform and three engine options–1,5-liter fuel, 1,5-liter diesel and 1,4-liter turbo petrol–have been provided for the second-gene model of the compact SUV. Manual and automatic transmissions are expected for all engines. These are the same drive options as on the Kia Altos.
