2023 Hyundai Venue Knight edition: What’s new?
The Venue Knight Edition gets cosmetic enhancements along with added features. Notable exterior changes include blacked-out elements such as the front grille, roof rails, alloy wheels, wing mirrors, front and rear skid plates. Hyundai has also incorporated brass-coloured details on elements like the bumpers, alloy wheels, and roof rails, complemented by red front brake callipers. The vehicle's logos sport a 'dark chrome' treatment, and a Knight Emblem, reminiscent of the one on the Creta. The Knight Edition is available in four monotone colour options: Abyss Black, Atlas White, Titan Gray, Fiery Red, and Fiery Red with Abyss Black. Inside, the theme continues with all-black upholstery featuring brass highlights. Noteworthy additions include a dashcam and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. The dashcam, equipped with dual cameras, reappears in the Venue, previously seen in the N-line version. Other new features that the Knight edition Venue gets are sporty metal pedals and an ECM inside rearview mirror.
