This is what I am scared off. Spending a million on the car and such inconsistencies. I am doubtful not only on the hill start assist but also the petrol AMT fuel efficiency. Spending a little more gets me into Venue SX DCT.

Like mentioned by others too in this thread, real FE of the petrol is around 20% lesser than what it shows on the MID. Expect between 9 to 10Kmpl in traffic, 13 to 15Kmpl on highways.

While you are right on the Hill Start Assist and poor FE, the difference in price between XZA+ and SX+ DCT is close to 1.75 lacs. I think this is a huge difference. If you have the budget, go for Venue otherwise Nexon is also a very good option.

Also, i dont think Venue DCT will deliver any better on the FE front. City FE will be ~10kmpl only (my guess). So, you can take FE out of the equation and then decide.

Shifting from diesel to petrol will take some time for me to adjust. 9 to 10 is low, Atleast 12 is acceptable for a petrol I think.

Price difference between XZA+ and SX DCT is around 70,000 for which electric sunroof, cruise control, auto headlamps, rain sensing wipers and the connected thing is extra on Venue. I am confused and the FE is also low for Nexon as per all the owners here on the forum.
How's the ride and NVH? I want a plush ride from my next car.

I hope you are comparing correct fuel types. What i mentioned was the price diff between their petrol variants.

That's for petrol only. DCT is only in petrol. Got quote of 11.42L on road and 12L on road for venue DCT.

Edit: It is 12.82L on road for Venue SX DCT

Venue SX+ DCT cant be 12 on-road. The ex-showroom price itself is 11.1

The on road for venue dct in Mumbai was 13,45,000 as quoted to me. I doubt that there would be a 60k difference between the prices in Mumbai and Delhi. Please do check again. It should be significantly higher than 13 as if you add the registration itself, which is around 11 percent if I am not wrong, itíll be about 1,30,000 for registration. Add 70k for the insurance (3 yrs comprehensive) and you arrive at ex showroom plus 2 lakhs straight. That itself drives it to 13,10,000 if I am not mistaken.

You donít get rain sensing wipers in the venue.
You should probably go for a diesel automatic. And Iíd recommend you to check out the amaze cvt. Itís a superior transmission and the engine has been mated very well to the transmission. Itíll be smooth, frugal and is about as spacious as a compact suv. Itíll serve your purpose well, if youíre ready to let go of the compact suv genre.

Venue dct wonít give you a very good mileage as well, because itís very very laggy below 2000 rpm. The engine tries to pull and it canít. The ride isnít plush per se, and itís definitely stiff. Venue felt considerably smaller than the Nexon to me. The transmission is superior in the venue, but coupled with the 1.0L t-gdi, itís doesnít shine. Nexon Amt wonít be as smooth as a cvt, TC, or a dual clutch transmission but it surely doesnít ďnot workĒ. But please donít expect amazing FE from the petrol. Itís after all a 1.2 with a turbo charger and turbo charged engines give the best efficiency only while cruising at reasonable speeds, not in bumper to bumper traffic. So if need be, go for a Nexon diesel, or perhaps a compact sedan or a sedan.

I took the test drive of Amaze CVT petrol, even though the transmission combo was very nice to drive, the car itself has no feel good factor. The interiors were just interiors very basic and music system had average sound quality. It is still one option but that feel good factor was not present in it.

I am not expecting really high fuel efficiency but at an average 12 like the TATA Vista petrol I used to have 7 years back. I will take another test drive of Amaze and Nexon back to back and see what I decide.

12 kmpl or even 13 is definitely possible. But you may have to drive in City or Eco mode for that. As much fun as it is in sports mode, the consumption goes up.

AMTs don't have hill hold feature, Nexon's advertised hill hold is using its creep function. It works on mild inclines but you'll need to use handbrakes if inclines get steep.

I've found gear shifts always consistent in a particular driving mode, but vary across modes. And it also depends on your accelerator input, having more accelerator input will easily make car hold even 1st gear till 30kmph in eco mode.

Thing is these variations are there in other auto transmissions too but we don't feel them due to imperceptible gear shifts but it's very pronounced in AMT.

Real mileage of Nexon petrol AMT is 7-8kmpl with AC in Bangalore traffic. And it's same across every petrol auto car. My friends' Creta AT & Compass AT give <6kmpl in similar traffic. Hope you now get an idea. But I've got till 15kmpl in highway runs.

Here is a snapshot that would give a better picture on Nexon Petrol AMT mileage. This is captured over ten months and is based on tank-full method. MID shows an average 15% higher mileage.

I have an XZA+, and use City mode most of the time. Sport mode was used occasionally during highway drives.

Curious which app you use to track these?
