What do the fresh photographs indicate about the Hyundai Venue facelift?
A spy photo of the Venue facelift’s rear end shows a significant change, including all-new taillamps with integrated LED elements that now extend all the way to the tailgate. The taillights, like those on the Creta, are likely to be joined by a thin LED strip. The taillight graphics are similar to those seen on current Hyundai models in other countries, such as the Staria MPV and the Ioniq 5 EV (also India bound).
In comparison to the existing automobile, the back bumper appears to be new, with the reflectors positioned higher up. A revised faux skid plate in silver is also shown in the photograph. The number plate, on the other hand, will remain in the same position as on the current car.
The front-end appearance of the Venue facelift will be revised, with styling cues similar to those seen on the newest Tucson (also expected to come to India). A reworked grille with new inserts, a reprofiled front bumper, and updated headlights are all part of the Venue facelift. A new alloy wheel design may also be seen in the spy pictures. Aside from it, the rest of the design and proportions look to be identical to the present Venue.
Inside the cabin, the Venue facelift is expected to gain visual modifications, with updated hues and textures for the seats and other materials. Hyundai is likely to improve the technology included in the Venue facelift, however details on this are scarce. More information will become available as the release date approaches.
Facelifted Hyundai Venue engine and transmission
The Hyundai Venue facelift is believed to use the same mechanical components as the present generation. An 83hp, 1.2-litre normally aspirated petrol engine, a 120hp, 1.0-litre turbo-petrol unit, and a 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine will be available. The 1.2 petrol engine will only come with a 5-speed manual transmission, while the 1.0 turbo-petrol and 1.5 diesel engines will get a 6-speed manual transmission. An iMTclutchless manual transmission and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic will be available for the turbo-petrol.
Hyundai Venue facelift: competitors and release date
The Venue facelift will continue to compete against its Korean twin, the Kia Sonet, as well as other compact SUVs such as the Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Toyota Urban Cruiser, and the upcoming Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
In 2022, the Venue makeover will make its global debut. In terms of timing, Hyundai may introduce the Venue facelift in India before the Creta facelift.
