Hyundai has launched the Venue N Line in India with Rs 12.17 Lakhs as the starting price for the base N6 Variant while the top-end N8 trim is priced at Rs 13.15 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The Hyundai Venue N Line is the sportier variant of the 2022 Venue subcompact SUV and the second N Line model going on sale in India after the Hyundai i20 N Line.
The sportier character of the car resonates in its design and gives it an aggressive position. It features a revised version of the ‘parametric jewel grille’ with minor jewel-like chrome elements on the grille and a remarkable mesh pattern noticeable behind it. The grille also appears more comprehensive than the regular variant, with the gloss-finished frame on the sides now marking the parametric design elements. The front bumper, too, has been changed with a new unit featuring a vent in the center, split skid plate-like essentials, and red highlights. Coming to its profile, the 16-inch alloy wheels are exact to the N Line, with red highlights again evident on the lower doors. Moving to the back, the Venue N Line gets a roof-mounted spoiler with the lower bumper featuring a diverse skid plate design to the average SUV along with a visible dual-tip exhaust, with Hyundai claiming that the N Line will feature a sportier exhaust note. Buyers will have three exterior colors to choose from – Polar white, Shadow Grey, and Thunder Blue – with the latter only available in dual tone.
On the inside, the cabin gets an all-black treatment compared to the dual-tone colors of the typical Venue. Hyundai has used red accents in various places to add a great touch to the design. The Venue N Line will carry over some features from the standard subcompact SUV, such as drive modes, a sunroof, and Blue Link connected car tech though Hyundai has said it will get an extra feature – an on-board dashcam.
The Venue N Line is powered by the 1.0-liter turbo-petrol engine delivering 118 bhp and 172 Nm of peak torque – like the typical model. The engine is mated with the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. Hyundai says that the N Line will also offer a sporty ride and management courtesy of its squeezed suspension set-up. The N Line gets four-wheel disc brakes with the front calipers completed in red to add to the athletic appeal.
