The Hyundai Venue’s powerful 120PS 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine is claimed to deliver an ARAI-certified fuel efficiency of 18.15kmpl. How much does it actually deliver in the real world?

The Hyundai Venue is quickly climbing the ladder in the sub-4m SUV space and is expected to surpass the present sales leader, the Vitara Brezza, soon. It is available with multiple powertrain options, including the 1.0-litre turbocharged petrol with both manual and dual-clutch automatic transmission options. We recently tested the Venue 1.0-litre turbo petrol manual to compare what it returns in real-world conditions against what Hyundai claims. Here are the numbers:

Displacement 1.0-litre Turbocharged
Max power 120PS
Peak torque 172Nm
Transmission 6-speed MT
Claimed fuel efficiency (ARAI) 18.15kmpl
Tested fuel efficiency (city) 12.43kmpl
Tested fuel efficiency (highway) 18.84kmpl

Hyundai Venue vs Mahindra XUV300: Comparison Review

Fuel Efficiency 50% in city and 50% on highway 25% in city and 75% on highway 75% in city and 25% on highway
14.97kmpl 16.68kmpl 13.58kmpl

The real-world fuel efficiency tests reveal that the Venue 1.0-litre turbo petrol manual is not as fuel efficient as Hyundai claims. Having said that, it was expected since the claimed efficiency figures are recorded under controlled conditions.

If you check out the second table, heavy city usage would amount to an overall fuel efficiency somewhere around 13kmpl in the long run. Please note that the figure can drop lower if you have to negotiate your way through dense traffic often. On the other hand, if your daily routine involves a relatively empty route where you can cruise comfortably, expect the overall fuel efficiency figure to go over 16kmpl.

Your findings may vary from ours as fuel efficiency differs with driving conditions, car condition and driver behaviour. If you’re an existing Venue 1.0-litre turbo petrol manual owner, do share your findings in the comments below.
