The Hyundai Venue and the Elite i20 are powered by the same diesel engine. Does that mean they are equally matched in terms of performance, or is there more to it?

Hyundai’s 1.4-litre diesel engine is one that does duty in many a model, including the Elite i20 premium hatchback and the recently launched Venue sub-4m SUV. But how does the exact same engine, paired with a 6-speed manual gearbox, perform in two different types of cars? Let’s find out.

Here are the specifications of the engine in question, same in both models:

Engine

1.4-litre U2 CRDi 

Power

90PS

Torque

220Nm

Transmission

6-speed MT

Measurement

Venue

Elite i20

Length

3995mm

3985mm

Width

1770mm

1734mm

Height

1605mm

1505mm

Wheelbase

2500mm

2570mm

First we compare the real-world performance test results of the Elite i20 and Venue:

 

Venue

Elite i20

0-100kmph

12.49 seconds

13.57 seconds

Quarter mile

18.43s @ 121.38kmph

18.91s @ 116.3kmph

30-80kmph (3rd gear)

8.26 seconds

8.32 seconds

40-100kmph (4th gear)

14.04 seconds

14.21 seconds

The Hyundai Venue, despite its relatively larger size, was able to outperform the Elite i20 in every test. It was quicker to 100kmph, quicker in in-gear acceleration and quicker in its quarter-mile time as well. A clear victory of the sub-4m SUV over the premium hatchback there.

Next we have the results of the braking tests:

 

Venue

Venue (1.0L Petrol)

Elite i20

100-0kmph

45.95m (wet)

43.10m

40.23m

80-0kmph

28.53m (wet)

27.28m

25.49m

One thing to note: the surface conditions were slightly wet while we were testing the brakes of the Venue’s diesel variant, which would’ve increase the braking distance. But even taking the reference of the turbo-petrol variant of the Hyundai sub-compact SUV, the Elite i20 is able to come to a stop much sooner. The hatchback wins the braking contest.

Lastly, we compare the efficiency figures of both cars from our tests in real world driving conditions:

Fuel Efficiency

Venue

Elite i20

City

18.95kmpl

15.32kmpl

Highway

19.91kmpl

21.29kmpl

Even though both the Venue and Elite i20 use the exact same diesel engine with the same manual gearbox, the mileage figures for both are quite different. In city driving, the Venue can offer over 3km extra per litre of diesel. But on the highway, it’s the Elite i20 that’s the more frugal car, with an extra 1.39kmpl.

Hyundai Venue

19.66kmpl

19.18kmpl

Hyundai Elite i20

17.81kmpl

19.40kmpl

16.47kmpl

However, when we average out the mileage between city and highway driving, the Venue is consistently the more frugal option. Whether it be an equal balance between the two driving environments, or predominantly highway driving or even mostly city driving, the Elite i20 is not as fuel efficient despite having the exact same diesel engine under the hood.
