Hyundai Venue gets clutch pedal-less iMT and Sport trim in India


Hyundai India has launched a new ‘Sport’ trim for the Venue crossover in addition to an Intelligent Manual Transmission (iMT) that was announced earlier this month. The Sport trim is essentially a visual upgrade over the SX and SX (O) trims and is available both in petrol and diesel options.

Ex-showroom price (INR) 10,20,360 11,20,900 11,58,400 10,30,700 11,52,700

Venue with iMT pricing:

Powertrain 1.0L turbo petrol with iMT

For those who don’t want any of the above, there’s also a 1.2-litre petrol engine paired with a 5-speed manual transmission, with prices starting at INR 8,31,900, ex-showroom.

As mentioned, the Sport trim is all about visual upgrades. It gets a dual-tone exterior paint finish, gloss black front grille with a red insert, red calipers, and dark grey roof rails with a red insert. Interior gets dark grey upholstery, metal pedals, red accents on the knobs, and red contrast stitching. Download the updated brochure here.


The clutch pedal-less iMT!
As we discussed previously, the clutch pedal-less 6-speed manual transmission — dubbed as ‘iMT’, is coupled with the 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine. In simple words, the driver will operate a traditional H-pattern manual transmission without a clutch pedal. Read more about the iMT here. There won’t be any change in the engine’s output; the turbo petrol offers the same 120 hp and 172 Nm (127 lb-ft) of torque.
