Hyundai Venue N Line Rendered, Can You Spot The Changes?

Shortly after it was revealed that Hyundai could produce an N Line version of the Venue, Indian Autos Blog has rendered what such a model could look like.

Ever since Hyundai launched its dedicated N performance brand, all anyone has been able to talk about is which Hyundai models will receive the N treatment. The Venue may be the most recent addition to the South Korean automaker’s family, but not even it can escape talk about a more performance-oriented variation.

During the recent New York Auto Show, Hyundai North America chief executive Brian Smith was asked about a Venue N and Venue N Line being in the pipeline. He indicated that both are a possibility.

Indian Autos Blog’s rendering depicts a Venue N Line with a number of small visual alterations to make it look a little sportier. The front fascia, for example, incorporates a set of bespoke black air intakes and also includes a re-shaped lower grille. The front grille has also been blacked out and there are a set of black wheels. Completing the visual modifications is a black roof and black roof rails.

It appears most likely that Hyundai will launch a Venue N Line rather than a full-blown N version. This means the tiny crossover is unlikely to receive the powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged engine found in the current i30 N, i30 N Sportback, and Veloster N anytime soon.

    I doubt the Venue will get a 2L turbocharged engine. The Venue is based on Hyundai and Kia’s B-segment subcompact platform. It can’t handle a lot of torque. AWD is possible, but the Kona and Kia Stonic offer AWD. The Venue fits into the same segment as the Soul. The Soul has a more powerful base engine and can be had with more powerful optional turbocharged and electric drivetrains. That being said, a N model could use a version of the 1.6L turbo optional from the Kona and Soul and Stonic. But the 2L is too powerful. Maybe it’ll end up in the Tuscan N. I’m surprised there’s not a Ford Escape/Kuga ST with the 2.3L EcoBoost from the current Euro-only Focus ST (which also gets a limited slip), Lincoln Corsair, Explorer and the Mustang among other cars. Anyhow the 1.6L turbo Hyundai has would make the Place fun.

      I thought Soul was larger then Kona/Stonic…

    Fastback, not Sportback

    Either way, regular or N Line, I still think it looks awful.

    I hope Hyundai doesn’t go crazy with the “N” like Chevy went crazy putting “SS” on everything…

    Some of you all need to chill. They’re clearly responding to consumer preferences for SUVs.

    So tired of these “””car enthusiasts””” who think their preferences are better than those of others.
