It has already been established that Hyundai has been developing a facelifted model of Venue which is expected to be launched this year. Test mules of the updated subcompact SUV have been spotted on multiple occasions in recent past. Now, Hyundai has officially revealed the first photos of the upcoming Venue facelift 2022 model.
Hyundai India says, that the “The new Hyundai VENUE has also been conceptualized to exude a bold & big persona with a focus on exterior design as well as interior space and comfort. It has been encapsulated by the theme – ‘Live the Lit life’. Launch is set to take place on 16th June.
2022 Hyundai Venue Facelift- Exterior Highlights
Updates on the upcoming Venue will mostly be cosmetic in nature along with feature enhancements. The latest iteration of the subcompact SUV is expected to be based on the brand’s new design philosophy- “Sensuous Sportiness”.
As can be seen in the photos, it has borrowed major styling cues from the upcoming new-gen Tucson. This includes a redesigned front fascia featuring a new 3D grille with chrome treatment that will be flanked by revised split headlamp clusters with integrated LED DRLs. New headlamps mean the front bumper will also be reprofiled. Side profile of the updated Venue is likely to remain similar for most parts barring a set of new alloy wheels.
Rear end of Venue marks a visible change thanks to a flatter and more upright tailgate that will feature revised L-shaped tail lamps with new LED internals connected by a thin LED stripe running across the tailgate and a re-profiled bumper with a faux skid plate. Other highlights include a roof-mounted spoiler, functional roof rails and a shark-fin antenna.
