Moving on to the juicy bits of the story, the powertrain options remain unchanged from the pre-facelift model. Petrol buyers can start with a 1.2-litre 4-cylinder naturally aspirated unit that offers 61 kW (83 metric hp) and 114 Nm (84 lb-ft) of torque. This engine comes paired only with a 5-speed manual gearbox. Those who want more, can pick the 1.0-litre 3-cylinder turbo petrol unit that pumps out 88 kW (120 metric hp) and 172 Nm (127 lb-ft) of torque. This engine can be paired with either a 6-speed iMT (clutch pedal-less manual) or a 7-speed DCT.
Diesel buyers just have one option in the form of a 1.5-litre 4-cylinder turbocharged unit, offering 73.5 kW (100 metric hp) and a healthy 240 Nm (177 lb-ft) of torque. This engine comes paired with a traditional 6-speed manual gearbox. As before, there’s no AWD on offer with any of the above powertrains. Do note that the Venue doesn’t offer AWD in any of the markets it is on sale.
