Crossover Hyundai Venue performed by N Line is already in operationApril 23, 2019
In an interview with the Australian magazine Drive, Chief Operating Officer of Hyundai North America, Brian Smith shared the good news about the appearance of the Venue N Line crossover. The car most likely will not receive changes in power, but will be able to brag with small constructive changes.
The South Korean brand Hyundai presented the eighth generation Sonata sedan and the new Venue subcompact crossover at the current New York Auto Show. Already confirmed that the first will receive version N Line, and now we hear that the crossover will also receive high performance.
If the Sonata N Line sedan gets a more powerful engine, it seems that the Venue N Line will be able to boast some minor changes.
In the end, models such as the i30 N Line and i30 Fastback N Line did not receive changes in engine power, although the cars have improved front brakes, as well as some suspension and chassis settings.
The first Hyundai model of this type in the United States is the Elantra GT N Line, which was presented at the beginning of the year at the Detroit auto show and was a replacement for the Elantra GT Sport. In fact, this is the North American version of the i30 N Line, which has no improvements under the hood.
The Venue N Line crossover will be similar in this respect to these cars, in particular, the new Tucson N Line, but if you need extra power, you will be happy to hear that Hyundai can create a full-fledged N-version of its tiny crossover. When journalists asked a brand spokesperson whether a more powerful version of the model would be created, Brian Smith said, “Maybe.”
Hyundai is also interested in expanding the N family. According to rumors, the Tucson N crossover is under development – it will get more than 340 horsepower.
Not so long ago, we wrote that KIA and Hyundai will get wide possibilities of power settings via a smartphone.
