Improved Hyundai Venue in Singapore

Komoco Motors, distributor of Hyundai cars in Singapore, has upgraded the equipment of the Venue crossover on sale here.

All the cars are now equipped with keyless engine ignition, while the better-equipped variant gets a new front radiator grille design and driving aids such as blind spot detection, lane departure warning and forward collision avoidance.

Mini Rosewood Edition available

The special edition comes in Indian Summer Red, a colour previously found only on the new Mini Clubman - with its roof, side mirrors and rims in black.

The rims have floating hub caps which keep the Mini logo upright even when the wheels are spinning.

The edition is available only in the three-and five-door Cooper variants.

They also do not need to register when they arrive at the service centre.

Their car-plate numbers will be scanned at the gate and a queue number will be automatically generated and sent to them via SMS.
