Hyundai Venue has already seen substantial success in the Indian car market which happens to adore its compact SUVs and to top that, the Venue offers Internet connectivity features. And now, Hyundai has launched the Venue with an IMT gearbox which has made plenty of headlines lately – thanks to the upcoming Kia Sonet. Hyundai Venue will offer clutchless driving experience in two of its variants – SX and SX(O), and also in Sport Trim on SX & SX(O). Hyundai Venue 1.0L petrol iMT is priced at Rs 9,99,990 for the SX variant and Rs 11,08,500 for the SX(O).

Hyundai’s new clutch pedal free iMT technology will be available with the Kappa 1.0 l T-GDi Petrol BS6 engine paired with a six-speed manual transmission that features an electro-mechanically actuated clutch. This means the mechanism remains similar to a manual transmission, however, the driver is not required to press the clutch to shift gears, hence allowing a two-pedal system.

FUNCTIONING OF INTELLIGENT MANUAL TRANSMISSION (iMT)

Hyundai’s iMT technology features a Transmission Gear Shift (TGS) lever with Intention Sensor, Hydraulic Actuator and Transmission Control Unit (TCU). The TCU receives a signal from TGS Lever Intention Sensor, indicating a driver’s desire to change gears.

It then sends a signal to engage Hydraulic Actuator forming Hydraulic Pressure. Hydraulic Pressure is then sent to Concentric Slave Cylinder (CSC) through Clutch Tube. Concentric Slave Cylinder uses this pressure to control the clutch and pressure plate, thereby engaging and disengaging the clutch.
