It seems Hyundai Venue Next in line for a mid-life facelift inspired by Greater Polyside.
Posting pictures Korean carblog Made by 3D modeling company Hum3D, the 2022 Hyundai Venue is labeled as the Turbo and show “the closest to an original Hyundai car and built based on dimensions from the open source”.
Given the catalog of other accurate 3D rendering of other production vehicles, it seems that Hum3D gained initial access to some venue or updated venue in some sizes or shapes to design this product, instead of a hypothetical rendering based on spy imagery or camouflage prototype.
Compared to the cars currently on sale, this redesigned Hyundai Venue takes strong inspiration from the choice of the flagship Palisade, especially a ‘mini-me’ version of the Squared-Off grille on the front and the integrated daytime running light signature.
Around the back, there’s a new taillight design that looks like a full-width light reflector – we suspect it’s an LED strip – complemented by a full-width plastic bumper insert. Both design elements need to make the venue more spacious.
There is a special go Turbo As well as badges, which means this rendering is probably based on Indian-market cars. Hyundai offers venues in India with 1.0-liter T-GDi three-cylinder turbo petrol similar to the motors offered in Kia Rio and Stonic.
Hyundai Australia declined to comment on the upcoming venue refresh, but we expect the Korean brand’s entry-level crossover to be released in the second half of 2022, ahead of the 2023 Australian launch.
Beyond the aesthetic change, expect upgrades to the venue’s infotainment and driver assistance technology suite – such as the available 10.25-inch infotainment and upgraded Hyundai SmartSense features with upgraded AEB and even adaptive cruise control.
There is no 3D rendering of the interior of the new space, so we have to wait and see the amount of changes in the interior design.
As of 30 April, Hyundai Venue is Australia’s third best-selling light SUV segment, according to VFACTS data.
With 2647 units registered per year (YTD), the venue grew by 37.2 percent by the end of April this year and only Mazda CX-3 (3480 units, -44.3 percent) and Toyota Yaris Cross (3040 units, +9.7 percent). Venue is even ahead of its Kia Stonic cousin (2569 units, +46.5 percent).
