Although its full debut is scheduled for June 16, its design has been facelifted Hyundai Venue Has been officially released in India.
Overnight the company added a camouflaged picture of the modified car to its Indian webpage, confirming the leaked rendering of the mini-SUV.
The waterfall grille at the front has been replaced by a square unit with a hard metal-style block in the design that is heavily influenced by facelifted palisades.
The slim lighting strip for indicators now flows directly into the grill, while the pod appears to be largely unchanged from the main and high-beam lights.
The lower air intake now consists of a black rectangular strip running across the entire width of the vehicle. The use of silver metal-style trim is now limited to fake bash plates below the fascia.
The back has a brand new standard LED lighting array. The brake lights now run on the tailgate, while a lighting bar links to the left and right of the car.
Mirroring the front, the rear bumper has a black rectangular section extending to the width of the car. At the ends are three vertically stacked elements with reflective and opposite light.
The license plate holder also resides in this black rectangle, with a larger and more prominent fox bash plate material beneath it.
The company has not yet fully disclosed the changes made to the interior, but the Indian site has an image of a modified gauge cluster bounded by a series of space-age red lights.
On the left is a digital readout for the speedometer and on the right is another digital display for the tachometer. A colorful multi-information display in the middle of life.
We don’t know for sure, but we bet the space will be available with additional security features, as well as a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment display for high-end models.
The India-bound models can be paired with Amazon Alexa and Google Voice Assistant, which allow owners to get information about different aspects of their vehicles and control them remotely in both Hindi and English.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
Australia-bound models are currently paired with a 90kW / 151Nm 1.6-liter naturally-aspired four-cylinder with a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic.
Venue in India is available with a 61kW / 115Nm 1.2-liter Atmo four-cylinder, an 88kW / 172Nm 1.0-liter turbo three-pot and a 74kW / 240Nm 1.4-liter turbo-diesel.
There the three-cylinder turbo can be specified with a six-speed automatic manual transmission.
There may be some small changes between the models sold at Facelift Venue in India and the rest of the world.
The spaces for the Indian market are locally made, and feature a slightly shorter overall length thanks to primarily bumper trimming. The wheelbase is also 20mm smaller.
By pressing below the 4m mark and using an engine 1.2 liters or smaller, the venue’s GST rate is reduced by about one-third.
Venues built in South Korea and sold to the rest of the world, including the United States and Australia, do not have the same limitations, so we may see somewhat different bumper designs.
With the launch of Venue Facelift on June 16, we hope we don’t have to wait too long to find out.
