Hyundai South Africa has expanded the Venue portfolio with the Limited Edition model. Here's how much it costs, plus specifications.
The Hyundai Venue Limited Edition is available 3 versions and there'll be just 500 units for the SA market.
All models are powered by the 1.0-litre turbocharged 3-cylinder motor and it has a tidy 88 kW and 172 Nm on tap. It's available with a 6-speed manual gearbox or 7-speed automatic dual-clutch transmission in the Fluid trim level, while flagship Glide is DCT only. In terms of economy, Hyundai SA claims 6.5 L/100 km for the manual and 6.9 L/100 km for the DCT.
“The Venue was very well received in South Africa since its launch, and the Limited Edition adds a little more pizazz to the range for customers who are shopping for a small SUV with a stylish exterior, outstanding comfort and convenience levels and a powerful and very efficient turbocharged engine,” says Stanley Anderson, sales and operations director of Hyundai Automotive South Africa.
The Hyundai Venue Limited Edition adds a 2-tone exterior, a light beige colour interior theme, with denim and leather cloth seats. Standard features are good, with an 8-inch display audio touchscreen system, which also serves as a rearview monitor for the camera, dual USB ports, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, with audio controls and cruise control buttons, while the Glide adds a 60/40 split, flat-folding rear seat.
Standard safety spec is good, with 6 airbags, Advanced Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Stability Control (ESC).
