The Hyundai Venue has received a pretty good response from the buyers and the sub-4 meter SUV has been doing pretty well in terms of sales. Launched last month, it comes with three engines and gearbox combinations and has a base price of Rs. 6.50 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). The most powerful engine option available on the Venue is the new 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine. This three-cylinder rocket is one of the most powerful engine options in the category and it also gets a 7-speed DCT option which further sweetens the deal. If you were curious about the 0-100 km/h acceleration times of the Venue 1.0 petrol, the video below by Dream Cars has an answer for you.
As seen in the video, the Venue 1.0 petrol is fairly quick off the mark and speeds up to 50 km/h pop up in no time at all. Going by the estimates provided by this video, the Hyundai Venue 1.0 turbo petrol does the 0-100 km/h run in about 10.8-10.85 seconds. That is pretty impressive for a car in the sub-4 meter segment. The driver in the video then goes on accelerating the car to reach the maximum speed. As seen in the video, the car attains a maximum speed of around 179 km/h. Needless to say, the turbo petrol engine on the Hyundai Venue is not only impressive on paper but also in the real world. Note that the top speed and acceleration figures here are not official and are based on the speed run done in the video above.
Talking about this engine, it is a 1.0 litre, 3 cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that puts out 118 Bhp of power along with 172 Nm of torque. As for the gearbox option, it gets a choice between either a 7-speed DCT unit or the 6-speed manual unit. Talking about mileage figures, the 1.0-litre petrol engine delivers 18.27 km/l with the manual gearbox and 18.15 km/l with the 7-speed DCT unit. This turbo petrol unit surely makes the Venue a pocket rocket, though how good is it to drive is something that can’t be said as of now.
The only other vehicle in the sub-4 meter segment which matches the Venue 1.0 petrol in terms of performance is another 3 cylinder turbo petrol engine car, the Ford Ecosport S petrol. The turbocharged engine on the Ecosport churns out 124 Bhp of power along with 170 Nm of torque, which is slightly better than the Venue. However, the Ecosport weighs more than the Hyundai SUV and so their performances are nearly equal. The pricing of the Venue with the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine starts at Rs. 8.21 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) for the S manual variant which comes with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The range-topping SX+ variant with the 7-speed DCT is priced at Rs. 11.10 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi).
