Hyundai claims that the diesel Venue returns a fuel efficiency of more than 23kmpl! But what is the story in the real world?
The Hyundai Venue was recently launched in India and with sales figures of the subcompact SUV going through the roof, it has proved to be a popular choice in its segment. Recently, we tested the fuel efficiency of the diesel-powered Venue, which is only available with a manual transmission, to find out how big a difference is there between claimed and actual figures.
Here’s a table with crucial engine details and our tested numbers as well as what Hyundai claims:
|Tested Highway FE||19.91kmpl|
|Tested City FE||18.95kmpl|
Hyundai claims that the Venue can return more than 23kmpl, but as you can see, real-world conditions lead to a drop of 4-5kmpl.
|Mileage||50% in city and 50% on highway||25% in city and 75% on highway||75% in city and 25% on highway|
As it is clear from the table above, the Venue’s average stays in the 19kmpl region no matter what kind of environment you drive it in. However, if the traffic on your commute is quite heavy, expect the city fuel efficiency to further dip by a couple of kmpl at least.
Your findings may vary from ours as fuel efficiency differs with respect to driving conditions, car condition and driver behaviour too. If you’re an existing Venue owner, do share your findings in the comments section below.
