The Hyundai Venue N Line will be launched using the Metaverse platform.
Korean carmaker Hyundai will launch the Venue N Line, its second N Line model for India, on 6th September 2022. The launch will be an online affair, with Hyundai choosing to use the Metaverse platform.
As far as updates go, we expect the Venue N Line to toe the same line as the i20 N Line, which was the first N Line variant to be launched in India. Just to clear things up, the N Line is not the same N, which is a full-blown performance brand of Hyundai.
The Hyundai i20 N Line was a tweaked version of the existing i20. Its suspension, steering and powertrain – all got re-tuned. We expect the Hyundai Venue to receive the same treatment. The manual version is expected to remain an iMT, although Hyundai could listen to popular demand and offer an all-out manual transmission version. The DCT will be the mainstay though, mated to that 1.0-litre turbo-petrol motor.
The signature purple shade for the N Line that we saw with the i20 will be carried over to the Venue. It will be interesting to see if Hyundai introduces an all-new colour option for the Venue N Line.
As far as prices go, we expect it to retail at least Rs 50,000 over the existing Venue models. For your reference, the Hyundai Venue retails between Rs 7.53 lakh to Rs 12.72 lakh (both Ex-showroom). While the Venue will continue to rival the existing sub-4 metre SUVs, its spiritual rival will be the Sport variant of the XUV300 that too is expected to be launched soon.
