Hyundai Venue N Line – What Do We Know?

The video released by Hyundai India about its launch reveals a few changes to the compact SUV. These include a new grille design with an N Line badge, different alloy wheels, and red accents on the front and rear bumper. Like the i20 N Line, it will also get visible exhaust pipes at the rear. It will also get the signature blue N Line colour option, first seen on the i20 N Line. As for the interiors, it will get black interiors with red stitching on the seats and red accents for various controls. 

As for the engine, it will get the 1-litre turbo-petrol engine. This motor makes 120 PS & 172 Nm. However, the N Line will likely only get a DCT gearbox. The standard Venue with this engine also gets an iMT gearbox. Even the i20 N Line is available with an iMT. Hyundai India could offer the Venue N Line in two variants – N6 and N8. The N8 variant will offer similar equipment levels as the Venue’s SX (O) variant.
