Hyundai Venue Long Term Report: March 2020

By Kapil Vashist | on March 20, 2020

If you remember from a couple of months ago, I was trying to see if I can exchange our diesel long-term Venue for the 1.0-litre automatic option. Well, I’m happy to announce that with a little bit of persuasion, the kind folks at Hyundai India managed to exchange the two cars!

Now, I have nothing against diesel cars, in fact, I find their low running costs extremely attractive, but the sheer effort of driving a manual car in today’s traffic was becoming a chore. From that perspective, the DCT gearbox of the Venue is absolutely brilliant. Not only does it shift rather quickly, but the refinement of the engine is also fantastic. And driving it with a light foot, I’m getting fuel efficiency numbers of up to 12km/l, which is pretty good for only in-city driving.

All in all, I have to say, the switch to the 1.0-litre automatic version of the Venue was a very good move. Now with school holidays approaching, it’s time to hit the highways and see how the Venue does on long road trips.
