Hyundai Venue N-Line ExteriorDesign

Hyundai brought the new Venue with several changes, including a parametric jewel grille, new bumper and wheels and connected taillight.

In the Hyundai Venue N-Line, these changes have been highlighted with red accents that are visible on the rear bumper, wheel arches, side skirts and roof rails. Hyundai has made minor changes to the grille, front and rear bumpers and faux skid plates of the Venue N-Line. The rear bumper gets an N-line badge and new dual exhaust tips. The biggest change is seen in the form of 16-inch alloy wheels that come with the N-Line logo and are available only in this variant.

Hyundai Venue N-Line Interior Design & Features

The interiors of the Hyundai Venue N-Line variant get several changes. The red highlight that was seen on the outside is also seen in its all-black interior. This red highlight is seen in the seats, steering wheel, gear stick, HVAC control dial and air vents.

The red highlight on the 3-spoke steering wheel comes in the form of contrast stitching along with the N-Line logo. The seats have been given red piping and red checkered stripe with black N-Line logo. The interiors of the Hyundai Venue N-Line have been given aluminum pedals and red ambient lighting to give a more sporty look.

Hyundai Venue N-Line gets 8-inch touchscreen infotainment with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and the brand’s BlueLink Connected technology. Other features include digital driver display with colorful driving mode, automatic climate control, wireless phone charging pad and electric sunroof.

The Hyundai Venue N-Line comes with a dashcam with dual cameras, which makes it very useful for those who want to record every journey. One camera monitors the traffic outside and one camera is directed towards the cabin.

For safety, the Hyundai Venue N-Line gets 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, brake assist, electronic stability control, hill assist control, vehicle stability management, disc brakes on all wheels, ISOFIX child seat points and tire pressure monitoring system. .

Hyundai Venue N-Line Specifications

The Hyundai Venue N-Line shares the same setup as the turbo version of the SUV but only comes with a single gearbox option – a 7-speed DCT automatic gearbox.

It is powered by a 998cc, 3-cylinder, turbocharged petrol engine that produces 118.3 bhp at 6000 rpm and 172 Nm of torque between 1500 and 4000 rpm which is sent to the front wheels.

The Hyundai Venue N-Line has been kept the same size as the regular model. Hyundai Venue N-Line measures 3995 mm in length, 1770 mm in width, and 1617 mm in height. The wheelbase of the Hyundai Venue N-Line has been kept at 2500 mm and it gets a 45-litre fuel tank.

Hyundai Venue N-Line Driving Experience

The Hyundai Venue N-Line is the top-end variant of this model and we have tested how much it justifies its name and price during our tests.

Output from the turbo-petrol engine is fast and the dual clutch transmission is extremely sharp. Although the sound coming from this engine sounds a bit better now and the reason for this seems to be the open setup with twin exhaust tips, this lets the listener know where the sound is coming from.

It has three driving modes – Eco, Normal and Sport, which change the character of the car. In Eco mode, the gearbox shifts quickly and stays in high gear even at low speeds and the throttle response is very slow.

The normal mode makes things a bit smoother as the gearbox stays in gear for a little longer and the reaction can be noticed after the throttle is pressed. The steering wheel feels a bit heavy in Sport mode, which is not suitable for driving during heavy traffic, but it gives the confidence to drive at high speeds.

The company has worked on its suspension setup. In simple words, it can be said that Hyundai Venue N-Line is the best handling SUV in its segment. The suspense setup was already tight on the regular venue but with the N-Line, the company has taken it a step further. Due to the tight setup, the body roll is minimal and the driver sitting behind the steering wheel has the confidence to change directions quickly. However, the tight setup also means that the experience gets worse when you go at high speed on rough roads.

The company has given disc brakes on all the wheels to make the Hyundai Venue N-Line stop smoothly. The brakes provide good starting bite and the pedals are easy to operate.

Hyundai Venue N-Line

The Hyundai Venue N-Line might look the same with a few red highlights, but it gives you a different experience as soon as you test it. If you are looking for a performance sub 4-metre SUV, then your search will end with the Hyundai Venue N-Line but for that you will have to shell out a bit.
