2022 Hyundai Venue To Be Launched Tomorrow: Top 5 Things You Need To Know

This will be the first midlife update, consisting of cosmetic and feature enhancements, for Hyundai’s sub-4 metre SUV


Hyundai India is all set to launch the facelifted Venue tomorrow, June 16. Pre-launch bookings for the updated SUV are underway and the car has already reached dealerships. This is the Hyundai Venue’s first major midlife update and it will be largely design and features oriented. By now, we already know what the changes are, but if you had your eyes on one, then here are the top five things you can expect. 


Exterior Design 


The cosmetic enhancements made to the Venue are in sync with the facelifted Creta and new Tucson. The grille is now squarer with new inserts and the DRLs are sleeker and more angular. In profile, the SUV gets new alloys, while the rear-end features new connected split-LED tail lamps. Redesigned bumpers round off the overall design. 


Interior Design 


As radical as its exterior is, the interior, sadly, doesn’t get any design or layout changes. That said, the cabin is now finished in a black/cream colour scheme, lending it an air of premiumness. Plus, it gets a digitised driver’s display from the Kia Carens, while the 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system now gets Alexa and Google voice assistant support, where you can access select features from home itself. 


New Features…  

… in the Venue include reclining rear seats. Apart from that, the SUV gets Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, automatic climate control, a single-pane sunroof,  cruise control, wireless phone charger and keyless entry with push button start. Passenger safety is taken care of by six airbags, ABS with EBD, electronic stability control, and ISOFIX child seat mounts.

No major changes in this section. The Venue will carry forward the existing 120PS 1-litre turbo-petrol, 100PS 1.5-litre diesel, and 83PS 1.2-litre petrol engine options. Depending on the engine you pick, you get the choice of a manual, clutchless manual, and automatic transmissions. 

The turbo-petrol engine will now skip on a 6-speed manual, while Hyundai won’t offer the diesel automatic powertrain from the Sonet.
