2022 Hyundai Venue facelift spied with significant visual updates
Spy images have emerged of the facelifted Hyundai Venue undergoing tests internationally. The sub-four-metre SUV was launched in India in 2019 but with Hyundai accelerating product lifecycles, a mid-cycle refresh seems due for late 2022 or early 2023. The 2022 Hyundai Venue facelift seems to have been given a fairly significant visual upgrade to bring it in line with Hyundai's latest design themes.

2022 Hyundai Venue facelift exterior
A notable change to the Venue with this update seems to be the new grille. The new slatted design seems to have been inspired by the latest-gen Hyundai Tucson and is also seen on the facelifted Hyundai Creta that debuted in Indonesia recently. The headlamps may also been reworked to be full LEDs while the front airdam also seems to have been enlarged to go with the new look. The side profile remains largely unchanged except for a new design to the alloy wheels. The rear, on the other hand, seems to have been significantly revised. The simple tailamp unit has evolved into a two-piece LED design while the bootlid now gets a slight brow below the rear windscreen to meld with the new look. The bumpers seem to have been reworked as well, with a distinct ridged reflector unit and differently styled faux diffuser.

The interiors of the refreshed Hyundai Venue haven't been seen yet but we expect to see new colours and textures here. The seat upholstery may also be upgraded while some minor changes can be expected in the dashboard layout. Expected new features on the 2022 Hyundai Venue include the larger 10.25-inch touchscreen, a more advanced digital instrument cluster and an expanded set of connected car features. Safety features are expected to be carried over from the current model.

The 2022 Hyundai Venue facelift will most likely carry over the same set of features as the current version. The sub-four-metre SUV is currently available with three engine options. The base motor is a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol that puts out 83PS and 114 Nm and is paired with a five-speed manual. The 1.0-litre turbo-petrol makes 120PS and 172 Nm and can be had with a six-speed manual or iMT and a seven-speed DCT. There is also a diesel option that makes 100PS and 240 Nm from a 1.5-litre motor and pairs with a six-speed manual.

Prices for the Hyundai Venue currently start from Rs 7 lakh and go up to Rs 11.85 lakh, ex-showroom.
