The specifications for the BS6-compliant Venue diesel have been revealed ahead of its launch, which is expected by March 31. The Venue BS6 diesel comes with a 1.5-litre CRDI diesel engine which is essentially a detuned version of the Kia Seltos and Hyundai Creta’s motor. But how does this new motor fare against the BS4 Venue and its competitors - the Ford EcoSport, Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300. Let’s find out:

The Hyundai Venue’s 1.5-litre CRDI diesel engine develops 100PS of power, which is equivalent to the EcoSport. While it’s more powerful than the BS4 Venue, it falls short when compared to the Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300. Even the Venue 1.5’s torque output of 240Nm torque falls short when compared to the Nexon and XUV300. It’s torquier than the Ford EcoSport and Hyundai Venue BS4, though.

Like its BS4 predecessor, the BS6 Venue is only available with a 6-speed manual transmission. The EcoSport diesel, too, is limited to a manual transmission. If it’s a diesel automatic SUV that you’re looking for, your options are limited to the Tata Nexon and Mahindra XUV300, both of which come with a 6-speed AMT.
