Much is known about the Hyundai Venue already and among the details still not in the public domain is the SUV’s fuel economy figures. We’ve just got our hands on the Venue’s economy numbers and the news is good. Topping the list is the Venue 1.0 GDI with the 6-speed manual transmission that has an economy of 18.27kpl. Coming in a close second is the 1.0 GDI with the 7-speed dual-clutch auto that has an ARAI-tested fuel economy figure of 18.15kpl. The Venue 1.2 petrol that is available solely with a 5-speed manual gearbox delivers a lower 17.52kpl. Buyers drawn to the diesel for the higher fuel economy will be happy to learn the Venue 1.4 diesel is rated for 23.7kpl.

The Hyundai Venue diesel (23.7kpl) also scores for efficiency but can’t quite match the class best figure.
