Hyundai Venue facelift in 2022: engine options

The new Venue is powered by the same 1.2-litre engine with 83 horsepower, 1.0-litre turbocharged engine with 120 horsepower, and 1.5-liter engine with 100 horsepower as its predecessor. Similar engine options are available in both the Kia Sonet and the Venue, although the Sonet offers a diesel-automatic option, while the Venue does not.

The 1.2-litre petrol engine in the entry-level E and S variants is coupled to a 5-speed manual transmission, while all the engine options are available in the mid-level S+/S(O) trims. Only manual gearbox options are available for the facelifted Venue’s SX, which is paired with 1.2-litre gasoline or 1.5-litre diesel engine.

The top-spec Venue SX(O) model, on the other hand, comes with a 1.0 turbo-petrol engine and both an iMT and a 7-speed DCT transmission. The 1.5 diesel engine is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission as well. The upgraded Venue now has three drive modes, Eco, Normal, and Sport, which can be selected using a new rotary dial on the centre console. This function was previously available on the Kia Sonet, a sibling model.

Hyundai Venue facelift in 2022: features, interior, and exterior

Significant aesthetic alterations are made to the front and back of the updated Venue. While some aesthetic elements on the front will also be visible on the next Tucson SUV and the Creta facelift that is sold abroad, the styling of the nose is reminiscent of the full-size Hyundai Palisade SUV.

Although the main headlight cluster’s design hasn’t changed, the all-new front grille now has a dark chrome finish and, on higher versions, LED projector lights. The grille and internals of LED DRLs have been combined into a single housing after revision. Along with a bigger central air inlet and black contrasting trim, the front bumper has also been modified.

The 16-inch, dual-tone alloy wheels receive a new look despite there being no significant changes to the shape. The rear’s remodelled taillamps now have new LED lighting components and are linked to one another by a light bar that is positioned horizontally. Additionally, the rear bumper has undergone aesthetic changes, receiving a new black contrast accent with reflectors. The redesigned Venue has a more modern appearance thanks to this brilliant style change at the back.

Significant interior changes are also made to the Venue makeover. A new dual-tone black and beige interior colour option are available. A few noteworthy feature additions on the Venue facelift include a reclining rear seat, an air purifier, dual USB C-slots for the rear passengers located below the rear AC vents, a wireless phone charger, paddle shifters, and a driver’s seat that is electrically adjustable in four different directions, among other things.
