On the outside, the Venue's look has now been brought in line with Hyundai's latest design themes. So you have this new segmented grille which merges with these new split DRLs. The headlamps have also been reworked to the fog lamps and are LED now while you now get this wide panel on the bumper to accentuate the 's width.
The Venue remains largely the same in profile although you now get a new design for the alloy wheels as well as puddle lamps. The most striking change is reserved for the rear where there is now a full-width LED light bar connecting the segmented LED taillamps, and again the horizontally slatted look of the bumper from the front is repeated here with these light inserts.

There are some notable changes on the inside of the facelifted Hyundai Venue as well. The general layout has remained the same but you now get a segmented digital instrument cluster and the 4-spoke steering wheel with paddle shifters from the Creta.

Other new additions are ambient lighting, a powered driver's seat, ambient sounds, auto headlamps/wipers and six airbags. You also get drive modes now and a big change to the rear seat is the new two-step rear seat recline while legroom too has increased with a scooped out front seatback.
