The Hyundai Venue facelift has been spotted a few times in India, and here’s a digitally rendered version of the upcoming SUV based on spy photos.
Hyundai is planning a mid-life facelift for its subcompact SUV, the Venue, in South Korea. In the coming months, the updated model is expected to make its global debut, followed by a launch in India. Multiple test models of the facelifted Venue have been spotted on international highways and in India.
People are already anticipating the arrival of the new Hyundai Venue facelift with bated breath. Based on spy photos, artist Omkar Surve has created a digital model of the updated SUV, and the styling appears to be quite aggressive. The new front grille, which is rectangular in shape and much larger than the current model, is the first thing to notice.
New LED DRLs (with integrated turn indicators) have been added to the split headlamp setup, while the main headlamp unit remains unchanged. The front bumper has been redesigned as well, with a larger air dam. The front bumper is unchanged from the current model, with the same foglamp placement and faux bash plate.
A new set of alloy wheels can be seen on the sides, which are bolder than before but not sportier. The remainder of the side profile is unaffected. Although the rear section has not been rendered, we do know that the taillights and rear bumper will be redesigned, as evidenced by spy photos.
We don’t know what changes Hyundai will make to the Venue’s interior, but we don’t expect any major changes. It’s possible that the instrument console will be replaced, that a few new features will be added, and that the upholstery will be changed. The cabin, on the other hand, will be identical to the current model.
Three engine options are currently available for the Hyundai Venue. The first is a 1.2-litre NA petrol engine with a 5-speed manual transmission (83 PS/114 Nm). The second is a 1.0-litre turbo-petrol engine (120 PS/172 Nm) with a 6-speed manual transmission, 6-speed iMT, or a 7-speed DCT transmission.
The third engine is a 1.5-litre turbodiesel (100 PS/240 Nm) with a 6-speed manual transmission. The engine and gearbox options are likely to remain unchanged in the updated version. However, there is speculation that a CNG option will be added to this compact SUV very soon.
