Hyundai Australia has quietly released the Venue Launch Edition alongside the core three-tier line-up, priced from $25,990 plus on-road costs.

Limited to just 100 units, the Launch Edition commands $500 over the top-spec Elite but gains a powered sunroof and exclusive single-tone colour options not available across the wider range,

Available hues are Exotic Green (top) and Lava Orange (below), both complemented by black cloth interior trim.

Being based on the Elite, the Launch Edition carries over the top-spec model's healthy levels of standard equipment. including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, 17-inch alloy wheels, LED tail-lights, rear privacy glass, satellite navigation, and climate control air-conditioning.

That's on top of kit fitted to lower models, like LED daytime-running lights, rear parking sensors, six-speaker audio, power-folding side mirrors, front centre armrest, leather steering wheel, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, camera-based AEB for urban/interurban with pedestrian detection, driver attention warning, lane-keep assist, tyre pressure monitoring, and automatic headlights.

As with the wider Venue range, the Launch Edition is powered by a 1.6-litre naturally-aspirated petrol engine making 90kW at 6300rpm and 151Nm at 4850rpm. Drive is sent exclusively to the front wheels via a six-speed automatic transmission.

The 'MPi' motor claims to use 7.2L/100km on the combined cycle, and is happy running on 91 RON unleaded.

CarAdvice is attending the Australian launch of the Hyundai Venue next week, so stay tuned for our local first drive review.
