The iMT gearbox option was previously available on three Hyundai Venue variants – S(O), SX(O), and SX(O) dual tone. The iMT gearbox in these variants has now been replaced with the six-speed manual gearbox. The reason behind the discontinuation of the iMT gearbox seems to be the lack of demand from buyers, who choose to go the fully manual or automatic route.
