• Hyundai adds a 'Limited Edition' model to its Venue range.
• Only 500 models are available.
• The 'Limited Edition' is differentiated by a white roof, blue body colour, and a bespoke interior.
Hyundai will offer just 500 units of its Limited Edition Venue model locally. The new derivative can be told apart by its white roof, and blue body colour paint scheme. Inside, you'll find a beige colour theme paired with denim cloth and leather.
The Limited Edition nameplate will be available in Fluid and Glide trim levels. The Fluid Limited Edition (manual) will set you back R328 900, and the dual-clutch model retails for R360 500.
The top of the range Glide Limited Edition is R385 900 and also uses the twin-clutch gearbox.
"The Venue was very well received in South Africa since its launch, and the Limited Edition adds a little more pizzazz 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 South Africa.
As mentioned a white roof, blue body colour and bespoke interior sets the model apart from the rest of the range. There are also 16-inch wheels offered as standard.
Power is derived from a 1.0 T-GDI three-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 88kW and 172Nm of torque, Hyundai claims the consumption for the manual model is 6.5-litres/100km and 6.9-litres/100km for the DCT.
The Venue Limited Edition is offered with the carmaker's seven-year or 200 000km warranty, a three-year or 45 000km service plan.
