Powered by the same engine as the regular 2022 Venue, the N-line produces 172 Nm torque and 120 bhp power from its 1.0L 3-cylinder turbo petrol engine mated to a 7-speed DCT with similar drive modes – Normal, Eco and Sport. There are subtle yet noticeable updates to the Venue N-Line on the exterior. N-Line badges on all four sides of the car, along with red highlights in the form of stickers, add a visual flair to the overall N-line appearance. While the straight lines on the Venue 2022 make it look sophisticated, the redesigned bumpers on the Venue N-Line bring curves on the edges complimented with new skid plates both front and rear.

The Venue N-Line also gets N-badged redesigned 16-inch diamond cut alloys. Four disc brakes on all four tyres are the most significant performance update. Visual updates include a tailgate spoiler, red highlight strips across the car’s length and breadth, and a new front grille with X-shaped elements. A relatively unique and stiffer suspension setup is hidden under the car silhouette. The Venue N-Line retains the best aspects of the Venue 2022 with projector headlights and cornering lamps, the exact ground clearance and the same tyre sizes. The new dual-pipe exhaust mufflers offer a grunty note; this is the audio sensory that will tickle most enthusiasts.
