For the Hyundai Venue diesel manual, you’re paying between Rs. 31,800 and Rs. 41,340 more than the petrol auto-clutch manual transmission.

Hyundai Venue Turbo Petrol Vs Diesel - Running Cost Calculation - September 2021
Now, let’s compare the per kilometre fuel cost you’ll incur with both the engine options. For this, we’ll use the latest petrol and diesel prices in Delhi and the official mileage figures as a baseline.
Depending on the variant, you’ll have to cover 17,811km to 23154km with the Hyundai Venue diesel manual to recover the extra price you pay upfront over the Venue petrol. For the SX variant, though, you don’t need to worry about breaking even as the SX diesel is cheaper than the SX turbo petrol.
Should You Buy Hyundai Venue Turbo Petrol Or Diesel?
If you have a budget of about Rs. 10 lakh (ex-showroom), then you can buy the SX diesel eyes shut. Because this is a rare car, which is not only going to save you money during the ownership but it’s saving you money from day one. The Venue SX diesel is already Rs. 7.000 cheaper than the turbo petrol model.
As for other variants, you’ll have to decide if you’re willing to let go of the auto-clutch manual transmission for the better fuel efficiency and torque of the diesel. From our perspective, this it’s already better than a fair deal as you'll only have to drive the car for about 20,000 - 25,000km to breakeven. But from a VFM perspective, you should definitely consider the SX diesel over any other Venue diesel variant.
