- The Venue will receive a mid-cycle upgrade that includes front and rear aesthetic modifications.
- It’s expected that the same engine options will be used again.
- Will include additional features than the previous model.
Hyundai Venue facelift: what does the new spy photo reveal?
In contrast to the earlier sighting, the current spy shot reveals less concealment and more design elements on the test mule. While the new Venue’s general body shell will remain largely same, Hyundai will make additional design tweaks to the front and rear of the vehicle. The latest spy photo shows that the 2017 Venue’s back end will receive a big makeover, which will most likely involve a complete redesign of the tailgate, as well as re-profiled taillamps and rear bumpers.
Furthermore, the spy photo suggests a potential N-Line variation for the Venue, with features like a twin-tip exhaust and an alloy wheel design similar to Hyundai’s N-line models.
The facelifted Venue will have a new angular tail-lamp design, which will be coupled to a thin LED strip, just like the Creta. The number plate, on the other hand, stays in the same place. The new Venue’s front end will be altered as well, with a new grille, reprofiled bumper, and updated headlights, among other changes.
Hyundai Venue facelift: what else is known?
On the inside, the Venue will be given a makeover, with newer colours and textures for the chairs and other materials. While we don’t expect big changes in terms of technology, the Venue could gain more features to keep up with rivals like the heavily updated, feature-packed Brezza in the ever-growing compact SUV market.
The 83hp, 1.2-litre normally aspirated petrol engine, the 120hp, 1.0-litre turbocharged engine, and the 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel engine are all expected to remain on the redesigned Venue. The 1.2 petrol is expected to retain its 5-speed manual transmission, while the 1.0 turbo-petrol and 1.5 diesel engines will receive a 6-speed manual transmission. An iMT clutchless manual gearbox and a 7-speed DCT automatic will be available for the turbo-petrol.
Hyundai Venue facelift: rivals in India
The new Venue will compete against the same group of opponents as the previous model. The Kia Sonet, Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, and the Maruti Brezza, which will be revamped in the coming months, are among them.
