Hyundai India recently launched the Venue facelift and has already garnered over 21,000 reservations for the compact SUV. Now they are preparing to launch the Venue N Line in the Indian market. This will be the second model from Hyundai India to get the N Line variant. According to Autocar India, Hyundai will offer the Venue N Line in two variants. There will be N6 and N8.
Unlike the i20 N Line which comes with two gearbox options, the Venue N Line will only get one gearbox. The i20 N Line gets a 6-speed iMT gearbox or a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. The Venue N Line will be offered only with a 7-speed DCT.
There will be no change to the engine. It will therefore be a 1.0-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine with direct injection. It produces 120 Ps of maximum power and 172 Nm of maximum torque.
Hyundai will stiffen the Venue N Line’s suspension. This will help improve the handling of the compact SUV. The steering wheel will be readjusted for more feel and feedback. It would also respond more quickly to steering commands given by the driver. There will also be a sportier exhaust. Additionally, Hyundai may also add rear disc brakes to the Venue N Line, which will help increase stopping power.
On the outside, Hyundai will make some cosmetic changes to make the Venue N Line look sportier. It would get a different, more aggressive front bumper with N Line badging. The same badge would also be present on the front fenders. There would be new alloy wheels with the N logo. The rear bumper could also be modified, the exhaust would have dual tips. There would also be red accents throughout the exterior.
The interior will remain essentially the same as the current location. However, there would be an all-black theme with red accents on the seats and the dashboard. There would be a three-spoke steering wheel and a different gear lever. Both are specific to the N line.
Hyundai would no longer add features to the Venue N Line. The N8 trim is said to be loaded with all the bells and whistles that the high-end variant of the Venue offers. So expect it to come with the new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, LED projector headlights, air purifier, voice controls, running lights cornering, a 4-way power driver’s seat, ambient lighting, connected car technology, up to 6 airbags and more.
The N6 variant would lack some features so it could be cheaper. It would come with dual airbags, get an Arkamys audio system instead of Bose, it wouldn’t have ambient lighting, an air purifier, and it wouldn’t get voice commands either.
Hyundai has set the starting price of the Venue Facelift at Rs. 7.53 lakhs ex-showroom. It goes up to Rs. 12.72 lakhs ex-showroom. The Venue N Line would be priced higher than that.
