    2020 Hyundai Venue - Petrol vs Diesel Price Difference Compared For BS4 & BS6

    by Mahesh Yadav on Saturday, Mar 21 2020

    The word was that BS6 compliance will make diesel engines extremely expensive in the small car segment. So much so that it may not be feasible for carmakers to offer a diesel engine at all in cars under Rs. 10 lakh. Earlier, a BS4 diesel engine option was typically about Rs. 1.0 - 1.25 lakh more expensive than the same variant of the car with a BS4 petrol engine. BS6 upgrade was expected to stretch this gap to about Rs. 1.6 lakh.

    The price difference between BS6 petrol and diesel cars from Tata Motors are in line with whatever information was floating around. The Altroz and Nexon, both, maintain a price gap of about Rs. 1.5 - 1.7 lakh between the petrol and diesel engine options. Ford is offering the diesel engine in the EcoSport for about Rs. 50,000 more than petrol engine. This price gap for the Figo and Aspire is about Rs. 90,000.

    Hyundai is offering the diesel engine in the Grand i10 Nios for a premium of just Rs. 85,000 over the petrol engines. This gap in case of the Aura is at about Rs. 1.2 lakh after the BS6 upgrade.

    With this exercise, it’s clear that the introduction of the bigger, and more powerful, 1.5-ltire diesel engine, the premium you have to pay for it has also gone up across the board for the most part. From variant to variant, the diesel tax has gone up by Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 36,000.

    Hyundai Venue

    The SX variant is an anomaly. The price gap between petrol and diesel engines has gone down by Rs. 4,000. This is despite the introduction of a larger and more powerful 1.5-litre diesel engine and BS6 upgrade.

    So, if you always wanted the Venue diesel in SX variant, then, know that you’re now getting it for the smallest premium over the petrol model compared to any other variant of the Venue. But there’s one more reason to celebrate. You’re also getting a bigger diesel engine, which powers cars significantly pricier cars like the Hyundai Creta and Kia Seltos.
