Hyundai India will launch the facelifted version of the Venue subcompact SUV on June 16, 2022. Meanwhile, the company has released design sketches of the SUV, giving us a glimpse of the 2022 Hyundai Venue.
While Hyundai is yet to begin the official bookings for the car, select Hyundai dealers are already accepting unofficial pre-bookings for a token of Rs 11,000.
Announcing the launch date, Unsoo Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India said, “Indian customers have showcased their love and trust in Hyundai, making us the most sold SUV brand of 2020 and 2021. At Hyundai, we will continue to excite our most loved customers with unique and exciting products, and I am glad to announce the launch of the new Hyundai Venue in June this year. I am sure, the new Hyundai Venue will continue to thrill customers both in India as well as export markets.”
The SUV now gets a new dark chrome grille which extends onto the LED indicators. Hyundai has also updated the headlamps, which come with LED daytime running lights surrounds, and a new bumper. While the profile remains similar, the Venue does come with a set of new alloy wheels and updated ORVMs with integrated turn signal lights.
It is also equipped with a connecting rear LED light, with LED taillamps, which reminds us of the VW Taigun. The lower section too has been updated with more of those new design inters and a revised rear bumper with a large silver skid plate.
The 2022 Hyundai Venue facelift will continue to get the same 1.2-litre naturally aspirated petrol paired with a 5-speed manual, and a 1.5-litre diesel engine paired with a 6-speed manual.
