Most of the changes in the Venue N Line will be similar to the ones seen on the i20 N Line. Here's a look at what you can expect from it.
The Hyundai Venue N Line is set to launch tomorrow, and although a lot of the information about it, such as the colour options and some of the features, are already listed on the brand's website, here's some more information on what to expect from the sportier iteration of the compact SUV.
It's reported that the Venue N Line will arrive in two variants – N6 & N8 – which will sit on top of the Venue variant line-up. Visual changes are expected in the form of a new chunkier-looking grille, N Line-spec alloy wheels (most probably of the same size as those of the standard model), dual-tip exhausts, and plenty of red accents on the body, including the roof rails and brake callipers. 'N Line' badges peppered on the body will further help distinguish it. As for the N Line treatment in the cabin, a new all-black interior theme is expected to debut with the model, with red accents and stitching to add a sporty flair.
Engine-wise, the Venue N Line will get the same Kappa 1.0-litre Turbo GDi petrol unit that powers the Turbo variants of the standard Venue. At 118bhp and 172Nm, the power and torque figures will also remain unchanged. However, unlike the i20 N Line, which offers the option of an iMT manual gearbox alongside the seven-speed DCT automatic, the Venue N Line is expected only to get the latter. Plus, the Venue N Line will come with disc brakes on all four wheels.
In terms of pricing, the top-spec i20 N Line is about ₹50,000 more expensive than the standard top-spec i20. So, for the Venue N Line, we expect this price gap to be roughly in the 50k – 75k range.
