After the recent launch of the new facelifted Venue, Hyundai is gearing up to introduce the N Line version of the compact SUV which will be launched in the coming months. A camouflaged mule of the Venue N Line was spotted testing in March. Now, we can confirm that the Venue N Line will be offered in two variants with a single engine-gearbox combination.
- Venue N Line to come with a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine
- Will get N Line specific unique styling updates
- To be only offered with DCT gearbox
Hyundai Venue N Line: variant details
Much like the Hyundai i20 N Line available in India, the Venue N Line will be offered in two variants - N6 and N8. Both variants will be powered by the same 120hp, 1.0-litre, three-cylinder turbo-petrol engine that’s also offered on the Venue facelift. Unlike the i20 N Line, which gets also an iMT gearbox option, the Venue N-line will only be offered with a sole 7-speed DCT automatic transmission.
Hyundai Venue N Line: expected design changes
To set it apart from the standard model, Hyundai will introduce a number of cosmetic updates on the Venue N Line. Expected changes include an N Line badging on the front fender, new front and rear bumpers with red accents on their lower sections, red inserts on the roof rails, a new alloy wheel design and a dual-tip exhaust
On the inside, we expect the Venue N Line to carry forward the same design and layout as the current model. However, Hyundai is likely to introduce an all-black interior theme with red accents and ‘N’ logos dotted around the cabin, just like on other N Line models.
In terms of features, expect the Hyundai Venue N8 to be equipped similarly as the top-spec standard Venue, with updated 8-inch touchscreen with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, connected car tech, ambient lighting, powered driver’s seat, LED projector and cornering headlamps with DRLs, integrated air purifier, voice commands, and a Bose audio system. However, the entry-level Venue N Line N6, which is likely to get halogen headlamps, may miss out on voice commands, ambient lighting and air purifier, among others.
In terms of safety, the Venue N Line, similar to the i20 N Line, will mostly get six airbags on the higher variant, while the lower variant may get two airbags only.
