Early this year, we spotted a facelift version of Hyundai Venue but unfortunately, it was heavily camouflaged. However, we now get to see a much clearer look at the Venue facelift thanks to a new spy shot from Korea where it is undergoing tests. The new Hyundai Venue will continue to face competition from the likes of Mahindra XUV300, Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, and the new Maruti Suzuki Brezza which will be launched in the coming months.
The spy shot reveals the rear of the facelifted Hyundai Venue. The new spy shot clearly showcases the tailgates along with rear bumpers and redesigned tail lamps. The angular tail lamp design is similar to the one on Hyundai Creta which will be connected to a thin LED strip. There will be changes on the front as well which include a grille and the redesigned front bumper. The current Venue comes with projector headlamps, projector fog light, and LED DRL setup which will continue to be offered albeit with some minor changes. Moving to the side, the Venue facelift comes with new 16-inch alloy wheels. Other details include dual exhaust tips which indicate the turbocharged petrol engine under the hood.
The interior layout is also likely to remain more or less unchanged. Hyundai might upgrade the 8-inch infotainment system to a larger 10-inch unit. One can also expect an upgraded instrument cluster with a larger screen. The Venue facelift will continue to be well-loaded like the iteration. For reference, the current Venue comes loaded with features like a cooled glovebox, keyless entry, push start/stop, cruise control, sunroof, Bluelink connected car tech, automatic climate control, 8-inch touchscreen compatible with android auto and apple car play, wireless charging, and projector headlamps.
The Venue comes with three engines and four transmission options. The naturally aspirated 1.2-litre four-cylinder engine churns out 83ps and 114 nm of torque. It is mated to a 5-speed manual transmission. The 1.5-liter diesel churns out 100ps and 250nm of torque mated to a 6-speed manual transmission. The turbocharged 1.0 liter 3 cylinder petrol engine produces 120ps and 172 nm of torque. It gets an option of a 6-speed manual, 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, and a 6-speed iMT.
