Hyundai Venue N Line Considered, Full-Blown N Not Being Ruled Out Either

Hyundai currently has quite a few performance versions of its models in its lineup. The i30, i30 Sportback and Veloster can all be ordered in N spec, with a 2.0-liter engine producing up to 271 horsepower and several technical and styling upgrades.

The Korean company recently revealed the Venue small crossover at the 2019 New York Auto Show. Naturally, those present at the event asked Hyundai North America CEO Brian Smith whether a Venue N is being considered, and according to Drive, the answer was that “it could be”.

Apart from that, though, Smith also admitted that a Venue N Line is being considered as well. “Would you like that in Australia? N Line was just introduced in Detroit. This is really going to be a vehicle that I think applies to that as well,” he commented.

A possible Venue N Line would look sportier, thanks to a new body kit and a few interior updates compared to lesser versions, though it wouldn’t get a punchier engine or tuned suspension.

Meanwhile, Hyundai has already confirmed that it will launch a Sonata N Line. The range-topping version of the mid-size saloon will debut in 2020 with over 275 horsepower, right after the hybrid that’s also set to launch next year, Smith revealed during the NYC event.

      LOL not sure what’s worse Venue or Palisade (which literally is a wooden post/fence)

      • Andrewthecarguy

        Really tho? Hyundai typically names their cars after places…Santa Fe, Vera Cruz, (Pacific) Palisades is in NY.

        • Jawohl

          Doesn’t mean it’s not cringeworthy still

  • charlotteharry57

    Ya know Hyundai, now really. You introed this unnecessary thing on the premise of having something affordable for first-time buyers and post-Millenials (because you’ve gone overboard with the Kona), but you just can’t resist gussying it up in the name of profits.

    • Andrewthecarguy

      Lol. Good point but it looks good tho.

  • Bill Nguyen

    Woah, it’s super funky in back! Didn’t realize hehe.

  • Jawohl

    No self respecting performance enthusiasts would buy something like an Venue N

  • Andrewthecarguy

    Looks good, hints of Mercedes and Audi. N variant is completely not needed.
