For the 2023 model year, Hyundai released a facelifted version of the Venue. In India, the manufacturer released the first photographs of the facelifted Venue ahead of its June 16 introduction.
The front grille has been enlarged, and a new Dark Chrome frame has been added. The split headlamps' upper section now has three LED elements, while the lower bumper now has a single extended air inlet and an aluminum-style skid plate.
There are new full-width taillights with trendy LED graphics at the back. The revised rear bumper also has an elongated black section that houses the reflectors and a skid plate, similar to the front end.
The Venue has a new infotainment system with over 60 Bluelink connected car features and the ability to handle many vehicle functions remotely via the Home to Car (H2C) system, including door lock/unlock, climate control, location, and tire pressure. Both English and Hindi languages will be supported by Alexa and Google Voice Assistant.
The Hyundai Venue also features a digital instrument cluster with three driving modes – Normal, Eco, and Sport – as well as new two-step reclining seats for rear passengers, which will boost practicality.
The new Venue is powered by a 1.2-liter MPi petrol engine, a turbocharged 1.0-liter T-GDi petrol engine, and a 1.5-liter CRDi turbodiesel engine. All Hyundai venue models are front-wheel-drive, with manual, DCT automatic, or Hyundai's intelligent manual transmission (iMT) transmission options depending on the powertrain.
The Venue small SUV is now available for pre-order in India, and it's probable that the mid-lifecycle improvements will make their way to other markets as well, given that the Venue has been on the market for three years.
