What’s new with the Hyundai Venue Knight edition?
The Knight edition receives no technical changes and only cosmetic updates. The front grille, roof rails, alloy wheels, wing mirrors, and even front and rear skid plates are all blacked out on the Venue. The manufacturer has also placed brass-colored details on the bumpers, alloy wheels, and roof rails to make the paint scheme stand out, as well as red front brake callipers. Logos across the car are given a ‘black chrome’ treatment, and the car is given a ‘Knight’ symbol, similar to the Creta Knight edition.
The Knight edition of the Venue is available in four monochromatic colours: black, white, grey, and red. A red and black dual-tone paint option is also available.
The Knight edition features all-black leather and brass accents on the inside. The Venue now comes with a dashcam and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The dashcam is a dual-camera configuration that is already available on the Venue N Line.
Engine and gearbox from the Hyundai Venue Knight edition
The Knight Edition is only available on the Venue’s petrol engines. The S(O) and SX models have an 83hp, 114Nm, 1.2-litre engine linked to a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the SX(O) variant has a 120hp, 172Nm, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine mated to either a 6-speed iMT or a 7-speed DCT.
Hyundai Venue Knight edition: competitors and the next generation
As a compact SUV, the Hyundai Venue competes with the Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Tata Nexon, and the somewhat larger Maruti Suzuki Brezza. As previously reported, Hyundai will launch the second-generation Venue in India in 2025, and it would be the first Hyundai to be produced at the recently acquired Talegaon facility.
