Hyundai Motor India Ltd, the second-largest car manufacturer in India, has launched the iMT variants of the Venue. Prices of the newly launched Hyundai Venue iMT start at Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India) for the SX variant with 1.0-litre T-GDI turbocharged direct-injection petrol engine. Also, the Hyundai Venue has also got a Sport model that will be available with both 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre U2 CRDi turbo-diesel engine options.

Like we have reported earlier, the upcoming Kia Sonet, which launches on August 7, will share engine and transmission options with the Hyundai Venue and in line with this, even the iMT will be shared between the two models. Prices of the Hyundai Venue iMT model start at Rs 10 lakh (ex-showroom, pan-India) for the SX trim with 1.0-litre T-GDI turbocharged petrol engine. Other than getting an iMT for the 1.0-litre petrol motor, the Venue has also received a Sport variant that will be available with 1.0-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre U2 CRDi turbo-diesel engine options. 

How does iMT work?

The recently launched iMT system features a transmission gear shift (TGS) lever along with intention sensor, hydraulic actuator and transmission control unit (TCU). These parts come together to lead to a smooth driving experience while removing the need for manual operation of the clutch. The intention sensor that is placed in the gear lever sends a signal to TCU on sensing the driver’s intention to shift a gear. The TCU signals the hydraulic actuator to create a hydraulic pressure and channel the pressure to concentric slave cylinder (CSC) via the clutch tube. The concentric slave cylinder makes use of this pressure to engage/disengage the clutch.
