2022 Hyundai Venue N Line Review : 8 Pros & 8 Cons

Much like the i20 N Line, the Hyundai Venue N Line gets the same ol’ drab-ish grey and black plasticky interior but peppered with red accents like the red piping and red-chequered flag motif embossed on the black upholstery

Hyundai Venue N Line Pros

  • Aggressive styling and distinctive touches set it apart from the regular Venue
  • Punchy 1.0L turbo-petrol motor with 118 BHP mated to a fast shifting dual-clutch AT
  • Firm yet compliant suspension coupled with weighted steering + paddle shifters + fruity exhaust note that make the Venue N Line a fun little package
  • Tasteful N Line-exclusive touches such as the N Line steering wheel, gear selector, drive-mode selector, red accents etc liven up the otherwise drab interior
  • Feature-rich equipment list includes 4-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, auto-dimming IRVM, cabin air purifier, BlueLink telematics, Home to car (H2C) with Alexa / Google Voice assistant, voice-activated sunroof, wireless charging & more
  • Price premium over the regular Venue is totally justified by the additions & improvements
  • Safety kit = ESP, 6 airbags, rear disc brakes, Blue Link SOS, Hill Assist, factory-fitted dual camera dash-cam…
  • Hyundai's wide & competent after-sales network

Hyundai Venue N Line Cons

  • More of a warmed-up compact crossover than a proper hot crossover
  • 1.0L DCT variant shows initial lag. Even otherwise, it’s not as explosive as VW’s 1.0 TSI
  • Handling is not as confidence-inspiring as one would expect from a "hot" crossover. Tyre upgrade is mandatory! The OEM rubber gives up easily
  • Diminutive street presence. Looks more hatchback than SUV from some angles, especially the rear
  • Strictly a 4-seater; the rear bench has very awkward seating for the middle occupant
  • No manual transmission even as an option!
  • Long term reliability of the DCT is a concern
  • Missing kit (auto wipers, steering reach adjustment...)
