Facelifted Hyundai Venue Spotted Again, Revealing More Design Changes

Like the facelifted Hyundai Creta, the Venue will also incorporate Hyundai’s latest design philosophy


  • New front grille design is similar to that on the next-gen Tucson. Other changes include new reflectors on the rear bumper and tweaks to the faux skid plate.

  • Other than updated upholstery, additional kit could include a digital driver’s display, a larger touchscreen, and ventilated front seats.

  • 1.2-litre petrol, 1-litre turbo-petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engine options to likely remain unchanged. Could get an N Line variant.

  • Expect a launch around mid-2022.

Hyundai has been prepping a midlife refresh for the Venue sub-compact SUV for some time now, with test mules being spotted multiple times. Well now the updated Venue has been spotted in South Korea again, only this time shedding a bit of camouflage giving a better look at what’s changed.

The images suggest the updates are going to be quite extensive, starting at the front with a new grille design. Judging from the design, it looks like the Venue will follow the facelifted Creta in incorporating Hyundai’s latest SUV design philosophy that began with the India-bound next-gen Tucson. Aside from the new alloy wheels and connected LED taillamps, the rear now reveals new reflectors and tweaks to the faux skid plate.

While cabin shots are yet to surface, we can expect additions such as a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, ventilated front seats, a 360-degree camera and a digital driver’s display. Features such as a wireless phone charger, sunroof, cruise control, and keyless entry with push button should be retained. 

Don’t expect any mechanical changes, with the current model’s  83PS 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol, 120PS 1-litre turbo-petrol, and 100PS 1.5-litre 1.5-litre diesel engine options likely to be retained. Currently, all engines have a manual gearbox (clutchless in the turbo-petrol) as standard, with a 7-speed DCT option limited to the turbo-petrol motor. That being said, the midlife refresh could bring in a 6-speed torque converter option for the diesel engine, like the Sonet. It could also get a sportier N Line trim. 

It is expected that Hyundai will bring in the facelifted Venue to India around mid-2022 at a price premium over the current model that retails from Rs 6.99 lakh to Rs 11.87 lakh (ex-showroom India).  It will continue taking on the likes of the  Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza, Nissan Magnite, and Renault Kiger.
