Spy shots of the vehicle’s test mules have been doing rounds on the internet for quite some time now. The brand has finally revealed the first looks of its new facelifted Hyundai Venue SUV.
Having received a mid-cycle uplift, the upcoming iteration of the Hyundai Venue sports multiple upgrades, predominantly on its cosmetics. The facelifted SUV also sports several feature enhancements. The front and rear fascia of the car comes restyled. It features a new 3D front grille with chrome finishings, redesigned split headlamp clusters, integrated LED DRLs, and a new front bumper with a wider faux skid plate. The alloy wheels and wheel caps also get a new look. Tail lamps get a complete makeover and are connected by an LED light bar.
Apart from these, the 2022 Hyundai Venue facelift carries over some aspects of its predecessor as it is, such as its bonnet and doors. Its side profile also remains more or less unchanged. Some other highlights of its exteriors include a roof-mounted spoiler, a shark fin antenna as well as roof rails.
The interiors of the facelifted 2022 Hyundai Venue are yet to be revealed. However, as per speculations in the market, a new seat upholstery may be introduced. The SUV is also expected to feature an enhanced 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, digital instrument cluster, ventilated front seats, a 360-degree camera, Bose sound system, and ambient lighting.
On the front of safety, the current-gen Hyundai Venue already comes equipped with automatic climate control, an air purifier, an electric sunroof, BlueLink connected car tech, and TPMS, amongst others.
