Powertrains and Variants for The 2022 Hyundai Venue Facelift
The new Venue is mechanically identical to its predecessor, with the same 83hp, 1.2-litre petrol, 120hp, 1.0-litre turbo petrol, and a 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engines. The Kia Sonet, a direct competitor, has the same engine options as the Venue, but the powertrain combinations differ because the Venue still lacks a diesel-automatic option.
The 1.2-litre petrol engine is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission in the base E and S trims, while the mid-spec S+/S(O) trims will get all of the engine options. Only manual transmissions are available with the facelifted Venue’s SX, which is mated to either a 1.2-litre petrol or a 1.5-litre diesel engine.
The top-spec Venue SX(O) variant, on the other hand, comes with a 1.0 turbo-petrol engine and both an iMT and a 7-speed DCT transmission. It also comes with a 6-speed manual transmission and a 1.5 diesel engine. The refreshed Venue now has three drive modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport, which are controlled by a new rotary dial on the center console, which was previously only available on the Kia Sonet.
Facelift for The Hyundai Venue in 2022: Exterior, Interior, and Features
Major styling changes are made to the Venue in the front and back. The nose is based on the full-size Hyundai Palisade SUV, and some styling cues on the front will also appear on the upcoming Tucson SUV and the international Creta facelift.
The all-new front grille is finished in dark chrome, and while the shape of the main headlamp cluster remains unchanged, higher trims now get LED projector headlamps. The internals of LED DRLs have been redesigned and are now incorporated into a single housing with the grille. A wider central air intake and black contrasting trim have also been added to the front bumper.
While there are no major changes to the profile, the 16-inch dual-tone alloy wheels get a new design. The reshaped taillamps now have new LED lighting elements and are connected to one another via a horizontally placed light bar at the back. A new black contrasting trim with reflectors has been added to the rear bumper. The updated Venue has a fresher look thanks to this clever styling tweak at the back.
On the inside, the Venue gets a makeover as well. The interior has a new dual-tone black and beige color scheme. A reclining rear seat, an air purifier, dual USB C-slots positioned below the rear AC vents for rear passengers, wireless phone charger, paddle shifters, and a four-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat are just a few of the notable feature updates on the Venue facelift.
When it comes to technological advancements, the new Venue’s fully digital instrument cluster with customizable themes resembles that of the Kia Carens. It also gets a completely redesigned 8-inch touchscreen system with built-in navigation and software that supports up to 60 connected car features and updates over-the-air. The infotainment system includes Alexa and Google Voice Assistant as standard features.
Six airbags, ESC, VSM, and hill-assist control are among the safety features included in the Venue facelift.
In addition, the Venue facelift adds Hyundai’s new feature, Sounds of Nature, which is already available on the Genesis luxury car line in other markets. It emits relaxing acoustic sounds such as crackling fire or waves.
