Hyundai Venue Knight edition: what’s new
The Knight edition does not get any mechanical changes, and sticks to just cosmetic updates. On the outside, the Venue gets blacked-out elements that include the front grille, roof rails, alloy wheels, wing mirrors and even front and rear skid plates. To make the paint scheme stand out, the company has also added brass-coloured inserts on the bumpers, alloy wheels and roof rails with the front brake calipers painted red. Logos all over the car get a ‘dark chrome’ treatment, and the car gets a 'Knight' emblem, like on the Creta Knight edition.
The Knight edition of the Venue is available with a choice of four monotone colours – black, white, grey and red. Also on offer is a dual-tone paint option of red and black.
On the inside, the Knight edition continues with an all-black upholstery and brass highlights. New additions to the Venue include a dashcam and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. The dashcam is a dual-camera setup, which is already available on the Venue N Line.
Hyundai Venue Knight edition engine and gearbox
The Knight Edition is available only on the petrol powertrains of the Venue. This includes an 83hp, 114Nm, 1.2-litre engine mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox on the S(O) and SX variants, and a 120hp, 172Nm, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol in the SX(O) variant with either a 6-speed manual or a 7-speed DCT. The Knight Edition also brings back the manual gearbox with the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine on the Venue.
