2022 Hyundai Venue – Exterior Changes
While Hyundai has retained the silhouette of the Venue in its original, the front and rear profiles of the SUV have been tweaked heavily. At the front, the new Venue now features a new grille and new split headlamps. The grille now is more angular with a parametric design with a dark chrome finish, while the headlamps now feature LED projectors with daytime running LEDs around them and turn indicators and fog lamps present above the headlamps. Even the front bumper has been tweaked with a wider air intake and scuff plate in the middle.
The only change on the side profile is the new design for the 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels in the higher-spec trims. At the back, the tail lamps have been redesigned with new LED inserts and are joined by a new LED light bar running across the width of the boot lid. The rear bumper has also been revised with new reflectors and reverse lamps.
2022 Hyundai Venue – Interior Changes
On the inside, the new Hyundai Venue does away with the all-black cabin and now features a more premium-looking dual-tone black and beige color combination. While the dashboard layout remains the same, Hyundai has introduced a new fully-digital instrument console with customizable themes. The 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system has also been updated with new in-built navigation, up to 60 connected car features, Alexa and Google voice assistant, and over-the-air updates. Also new to the Venue is the ‘sounds of nature’ feature, which plays soothing acoustic sounds like sea waves and a crackling fire in the cabin through speakers.
The list of features in the new Hyundai Venue has been updated with additional new features like a four-way electronically-adjustable driver’s seat, air purifier, a new tilt and telescopic adjustable multi-functional steering wheel with cruise control, rear AC vents with dual USB-C charging slots below them, two-way reclining rear seats, paddle shifters and drive mode selector knob with three drive modes on offer – eco, normal and sport. The features list continues to get a single-pane sunroof, automatic climate control, wireless charger, push start-stop button, six airbags, ABS with EBD, reverse parking sensors and camera, vehicle stability management, and hill start assist.
2022 Hyundai Venue – Engine and Transmission Choices
The Hyundai Venue continues to get the same powertrain choices that were available in the pre-facelift model – two petrol and one diesel. The 1.2-liter four-cylinder naturally-aspirated petrol engine produces 83 PS of power and 114 Nm of torque and is available with a standard 5-speed manual gearbox. On the other hand, the 1.0-liter three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine makes 120 PS of power and 172 Nm of torque and is offered with the choices of a 6-speed iMT and a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic. The diesel engine is a 1.5-liter four-cylinder oil burner, which is available with only a 6-speed manual gearbox and churns out 100 PS of power and 240 Nm of torque.
2022 Hyundai Venue – Competitors
The Hyundai Venue will continue to pose a challenge to the Tata Nexon, Kia Sonet, Mahindra XUV300, Renault Kiger, Nissan Magnite, and Toyota Urban Cruiser. It will also see a fresher competition from the all-new Maruti Suzuki Brezza, which will hit the showroom floors on June 30th.
