Hyundai Motor is all set to launch the Venue N Line SUV in India. The carmaker has announced that it will drive in the second N Line model for Indian customers next month. Venue N Line will join the i20 N Line as the two performance versions of the respective models. The i20 N Line was launched as the first from Hyundai in India in 2021. Hyundai will announce the price of the Venue N Line on September 6, just ahead of the festive season.
Hyundai Motor recently introduced the new generation Venue sub-compact SUV in India, with a starting price of 7.53 lakh rupees (ex-showroom, India). The 1.0 turbo GDi petrol and 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine variants cost up to 9.99 lakh (all prices are ex-showroom and introductory). In the Indian market, it competes with Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, and newer offerings such as Nissan Magnite and Renault Kiger.
Hyundai has arranged a virtual experience through Metaverse, in the Hyundai Mobility Adventure experience available on Roblox, for those who want to experience the launch firsthand. Customers can watch the virtual launch of the Venue N Line by downloading the Roblox app from the Play Store in just a few clicks on their mobile phones or laptops. “We have embarked on a journey to take our customer experiences Beyond Mobility by innovating and pushing the boundaries of usable technologies,” said Tarun Garg, Director (Sales, Marketing, and Service), Hyundai Motor India. As we move closer towards the introduction of our next blockbuster product offering – Hyundai Venue N Line, we are pleased to announce this one-of-a-kind experience made available on Roblox to introduce this futuristic product through an immersive and unique car launch experience on the Metaverse.”
The Hyundai Venue N Line is expected to be powered by the Korean automaker’s 1.0-litre, 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine, which is capable of producing 118 bhp and 172 Nm of peak torque. The engine will most likely be paired with the 7-speed DSG transmission, which will be tweaked to provide a more sporty output than the standard variants.
The Venue’s appearance is likely to remain unchanged. The only changes will be the red lines across the SUV and the N Line badging to distinguish it from the standard SUV variants. Hyundai is also likely to follow in the footsteps of the i20 N-Line by stiffening the Venue N Line’s suspension. The steering wheel is also expected to provide more feedback and to be slightly retuned.
