Hyundai Venue Flux Edition gets a Mercedes-style grille

Hyundai Venue has been on sale for over an year and has received an overwhelming response from the customers. It is now, one of the best selling sub-4 meter compact SUVs in the country after Maruti Brezza. Hyundai Venue is not just sold here in India but also internationally. Back in South Korea, Hyundai has now launched a special edition for Hyundai Venue which is known as Flux. It is only sold in Korean market and gets minor differences in terms of styling when compared to the regular version.

The Flux edition as mentioned comes with cosmetic changes and, the main difference one would notice in the Flux edition in comparison to the regular version is the new hot-stamped front grille. The new grille design in Venue Flux is similar to the one seen in many luxury cars like Mercedes-Benz. The new chrome inserts give Venue Flux a much more premium and sporty look.  Other changes include neon green colour inserts around the fog lamps area, lower part of the bumper, wheel arches, ORVMS, rear bumper and roof. It also gets a neon green colour badging on the C-Pillar.

The neon green combination gives the whole car a sporty look and let’s it stand out from the regular version. Just like exteriors, interiors of the Venue Flux also get a neon green inserts at places. The whole cabin gets a black theme with neon green inserts at places like AC knobs, AC vents and seats. Mechanically, no changes are made to the Hyundai Venue. In South Korea, Venue is powered by a 1.6 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that generates a maximum of 123 Ps and 154 Nm of torque. The engine is mated to an IVT (CVT) automatic gearbox which the Indian version misses.

The Indian version of the sub-4 meter compact SUV is available with both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol version is offered with 2 engine options: a 1.2 litre-4 cylinder naturally aspirated motor with 82 Bhp-114 Nm, and a 1.0 litre, three cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with 118 Bhp-172 Nm. The diesel version is powered by a recently introduced 1.5 litre diesel unit which is now BS6 compliant. The diesel makes 99 Bhp-240 Nm. Only the 1.0 litre turbo petrol engine comes with an optional DCT gearbox and all the other engines are mated to manual gearbox only.
