New 2020 Hyundai Venue Is Easy On Fuel

Keeping fuel bills low is an important considering in the segment. The new Hyundai Venue delivers.

The new 2020 Hyundai Venue will make a splash in the small crossover/SUV segment. There’s a growing list of participants including the popular Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, Ford EcoSport, Chevy Trax, Nissan Kicks, Jeep Renegade, Kia Niro and the Venue’s stablemate, the Kona.

The main reasons for shopping in this segment are value, capability and overall economy. All of these vehicles aim to deliver on each point but fuel economy continues to be a powerful motivator for selecting one model over another.

Kia Will Build Its Own Subcompact SUV With AWD

The 2020 Hyundai Venue’s fuel consumption numbers has just been announced and they are compelling. The new Hyundai will be powered by a 121-horsepower 1.6-litre 4-cylinder engine paired to either a six-speed manual gearbox or a continuously variable automatic gearbox or, more precisely, an Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT). It will be front-wheel-drive only.

With the latter, the Venue will average 7.8L/100km in the city, 6,9L/100km on the highway for a combined 7.4L/100km. Equipped with the manual transmission, the numbers are 8.7, 6.7 and 7.8 respectively.

These numbers make it one of the most frugal in the segment, behind the Nissan Kicks which averages 7.2L/100km and on par or better than most others.
