Barely a week has passed since the wraps came off the new 2020 Hyundai Venue and there’s talk of an N-Line version on the way.
We were and are quite taken by the new 2020 Hyundai Venue, this newest most affordable of crossovers should do well for the Korean giant. We witnessed the reveal first hand at it appears that more than just the basics were shared in New York.
In a discussion with Australian magazine Drive, Hyundai North America’s Chief Operating Officer, Brian Smith shared that said an N-Line version of the tiny 2020 Hyundai Venue ‘ute is likely to arrive in the near-future.
Hyundai pulled the exact same stunt with the new 2020 Sonata – the cover had barely hit the ground and the N-Line performance version was already on media members’ lips. Unlike the sedan however, the Venue N-Line may turn out to be more of an appearance packages and not a full-fledged performance upgrade.
While the Sonata will boast a major power boost, the Venue will more than likely be limited to an N-Line grille and other bits including wheels. The cabin will surely gain upgraded seats, steering wheels and interior trim. And then Hyundai may slap a turbocharged 1.6-litre under the bonnet and start its own racing series. Who knows?
Either way, we support the N-Line all-the-things movement.
