Hyundai India has planned five new SUVs for this year, namely, Creta facelift, updated Venue, new Kona EV, next-generation Tucson and Ioniq 5. While the new Tucson and Kona EV are reported to arrive in the first quarter of this year, the updated Creta and Venue will hit roads by mid 2022. The Hyundai Ioniq 5 electric CUV will see a release towards the end of this year. Talking about the 2022 Hyundai Venue facelift, the model will receive a few noticeable cosmetic changes and feature upgrades. Rumour has it that the automaker might also introduce the Hyundai Venue N-Line variant with the mid-life update.
Here’s a latest digital rendering previewing the updated Venue in five new colour options – Grey, White, Silver, Red and Blue. The new model carries Hyundai’s new design language that we have already seen on the new-gen Tucson and Creta facelift. Upfront, the subcompact SUV carries a new parametric grille, revised bumper, new fog lamp assembly and new faux silver coloured skid plate. The rectangular projector headlamps with LED DRLs and airdam are carried forward from the existing model.
The rendered new Hyundai Venue 2022 has been assembled with the newly-designed alloy wheels. The rear section is likely to be updated with new LED taillmaps connected via a thin LED strip. Interior details of the facelifted model are still under the wraps. Though, it’s likely to come with new interior theme and upholstery, new BlueLink connected car tech and updated infotainment system.
No changes will be made to its engine setup. The new 2022 Hyundai Venue facelift will continue to come with the 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol, 1.0L GDi turbo petrol and 1.5L CRDi diesel engine options. While the naturally aspirated gasoline unit makes 82bhp with 113Nm, the turbo-petrol motor delivers 119bhp and 175Nm. The oil burner returns a claimed power of 99bhp and 240Nm of torque. There will four gearboxes on offer – 5-speed manual, 6-speed manual, 6-speed clutchless iMT and 7-speed DCT automatic.
