Hyundai is preparing for the debut of its new Hyundai venue facelift this year on the 16th of June. The updated sub-4-metre SUV has been stirring up some excitement since its spy shots were leaked earlier. The spy shots of the Hyundai Venue facelift 2022 have been circulating the internet for a few months now.
- Hyundai Venue facelift 2022 images leaked
- The facelift includes exterior design changes like a new front grille, redesigned rear end, etc.
- Venue Facelift will debut on June 6th this year
Hyundai Venue Facelift 2022 is getting a newly redesigned exterior that includes a parametric patterned grille on the front like the new Tucson and Creta models.
The Korean company has included a series of cool exterior updates for the Venue that will be officially unveiled later this month. This will be the first mid-cycle refresh done for the model since its launch in 2019.
Read all about the key changes to be seen with the new Venue here.
Hyundai Venue Facelift 2022 will get the same engine options as that of the previous Venue:
- 2-litre naturally aspirated petrol engine (83 PS)
- 5-litre diesel engine (100 PS)
- 0-litre turbo-petrol engine (120 PS)
Transmission choices are also expected to be the same as before with manual, automatic and clutchless manual transmission depending on the engine.
If there are upgrades here, we can also anticipate a 6-speed manual, 6-speed automatic or a 7-speed DCT transmission for the facelift version. Hyundai could also offer the 1.5-litre turbocharged CRDI diesel engine (92 PS) mated to a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed torque converter gearbox.
New Design Changes!
The leaked images present the 2022 Venue with design updates similar to those seen from the recent Tucson and Creta facelifts.
The front grille especially is the large chrome patterned design seen in the Tucson and Creta facelifts. It is flanked by split headlamps, LED DRLs and fog lights.
The pictures also show three-slat unit DRLs which include the indicators in their layouts. The previous generation Venue came with two-slat unit DRLs.
Higher spec models can be expected to come with full LEDs and reflectors for the low-end variants.
The wheels of the Hyundai venue facelift 2022 have changed to an upright five-spoke star-like design from the fan pattern seen in the current version.
In the rear, we find that Hyundai has changed the designs for the tail lamps. There are new black claddings above and below the license plate which incorporate new individual lights. These lights have replaced the rectangular reverse lamps and integrated indicators from the current model.
There is an LED light bar that runs along the boot lid in the rear along with a redesigned bumper and skid plates.
What can we expect inside Hyundai venue facelift 2022?

Other additional features include a digitised instrument display like the one in the i20, Bose Surround System, etc. along with other features that will be retained from the older version like automatic climate control, a single-pane sunroof, wireless phone charger, cruise control, keyless entry with push-button start, connected car tech, 6 airbags and ESC.
