    Hyundai Venue Turbo Petrol To Get Clutchless Manual Transmission (iMT) in July 2020

    by Mahesh Yadav on Friday, Jul 03 2020

    Hyundai just made a shocking announcement and declared that the Venue will be the first car in India to get a 2-pedal clutchless manual transmission. Soon, Hyundai will reveal the prices of its Venue turbo iMT (intelligent manual transmission) when it goes on sale in July 2020. The automated clutch system will initially remain exclusively available with the 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine.

    Kia showcased the Sonet SUV at the Auto Expo 2020 in February. Back then, Kia had announced that it’ll bring the same iMT transmission with the Sonet.

    This system allows you to drive the car like a manual transmission with full H-pattern gears while relieving the driver of the duties to manage the clutch pedal. Of course, there is a still clutch pack in the car but it will be managed using electronics thus making it easier to drive in crawling traffic.

    There’s no other car in India with such a clutch-less manual transmission although it’s available as an aftermarket accessory. The cost of such accessories is around Rs. 40 - 50k. Considering the large scale production capabilities of a big carmaker like Hyundai, we expect it to add no more than Rs. 20k to the ex-showroom cost over a full manual transmission model.

    The IMT variants of the Venue may replace the 6-speed manual transmission completely. The only problem some of us may face with the IMT is that we can’t do a push start if the battery is dead because you can’t dump the clutch. The turbo petrol MT range of the Venue currently costs between Rs. 8.46 and Rs. 10.85 lakh.

    The Sonet is also going on sale in August or September 2020 and that car will also bring this technology with its turbo petrol engine.
