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.
Venue Sport trim pricing:
|Powertrains||1.0L turbo petrol with iMT||1.0L turbo petrol with 7DCT||1.5L turbo diesel with 6MT|
|Trim||SX||SX (O)||SX+||SX||SX (O)|
|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|
|Ex-showroom price (INR)||9,99,990||11,08,500|
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.
