Japanese automaker Hyundai is gearing up to launch the facelifted version of VENUE in India. Now, the company has announced that the four-wheeled vehicle will be introduced on June 16.

The company has not yet started official reservations for the car, but some dealers have started unofficial pre-bookings for a token amount of Rs. 11,000.

Hyundai has also released its design sketches.

Why is this story important?

  • Hyundai first launched the VENUE in India in 2019. Since then, the SUV has remained unchanged for three years.
  • However, things are about to change with this mid-life facelift. With a revamped exterior and upgraded interior, the VENUE is expected to challenge its rivals in the compact SUV segment.
  • It will compete with Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite and Kia Sonet.

The SUV will feature a “Parametric Jewel” grille

The design language of the 2022 Hyundai VENUE will be consistent with that of the TUCSON. It will sport a sculpted hood, dark chrome grille with “Parametric Jewel” inserts, revised front and rear bumpers and a large air intake.

It will be flanked by indicator-mounted ORVMs and new alloy wheels. L-shaped taillights connected by a thin strip of LEDs will adorn the rear.

The car will be offered with three engine options

Hyundai VENUE (facelift) will be powered by a 1.2 liter naturally aspirated petrol engine which produces 82 hp/113 Nm, a 1.5 liter diesel engine which generates 99 hp/240 Nm and a turbo-petrol engine of 1.0 liter that produces 118 hp/ 172Nm. Transmission options will include a 5/6-speed manual, 6-speed torque converter or iMT and 7-speed DCT.

The four-wheeler will have ambient lighting and a 10.25-inch touchscreen

The Hyundai VENUE (facelift) will feature a 5-passenger cabin with updated upholstery, automatic climate control, power sunroof, air purifier, ventilated front seats, Bose sound system and ambient lighting.

It will feature a digital dashboard and a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Blue Link connected car technology.

For safety, the SUV will have six airbags, a 360 degree camera and ABS.

2022 Hyundai VENUE: Pricing and Availability

Hyundai will announce official pricing and availability details for the VENUE SUV when it launches on June 16. However, we expect it to carry a premium over the outgoing model which starts at Rs. 7.11 lakh (former showroom).
