Rumour: 2023 Hyundai Venue to use Creta’s 1.5L Diesel engine

The Venue is also likely to get 4 airbags as standard along with an engine start / stop function.

With the RDE norms due to come into effect this year, automakers are making major changes to their powertrain offerings. Hyundai will continue to offer a diesel engine in its SUV line-up, albeit with a few changes.

The 1.5-litre diesel engine powering the Creta is being updated to comply with the RDE regulations. It is said that the same engine will replace the existing 99 BHP 1.5-litre diesel unit in the Venue as well. Rumours suggest that it could be paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox only.

Besides the more potent diesel engine, the Venue is also expected to gain some new features. Reports suggest that Hyundai could offer 4 airbags as standard across all variants of the 2023 Venue.

It is also said that the Venue could get an engine start / stop function thanks to the introduction of an integrated starter generator (ISG). It should help improve overall fuel efficiency, especially in stop / go traffic.

The 2023 Hyundai Venue is expected to go on sale later this year.
