Hyundai’s hit, the Location, released last year owes much of its success to its youthful looks. However, Hyundai has released an even catchier version of the Venue, called Flux, in a bid to add a bit more zing.
The Flux edition is only available in its South Korean home market and bears several cosmetic updates to help it stand out from a Vanilla Venue. This include a hot-stamped front grill that gives a luxury touch to the intricate features of the interior. The Acid Yellow and Black highlights on the bumpers, side skirts, wheel arches, roof and insignia on the C-pillar provide a splash of color.
For the AC pipes, rotary dials and contrast stitching for the leather-wrapped steering wheel and fake black door armrests, the interior gets the same care with separate paint highlights. This is strictly a visual enhancement so characteristics remain the same. Highlights include an 8-inch Apple CarPlay and Android Auto touchscreen infotainment panel, automated temperature control, air purifier, sunroof, six airbags, and rear parking monitor.
Equally unchanged are the engine choices, and the South Korean model is powered by the same 1.6-liter petrol engine that displaces 123PS/154Nm. The Indian-spec model is granted an comprehensive powertrain list: a 1.2-liter NA, 1.0-liter turbo gasoline, and a 1.5-liter diesel engine.
