The launch of the updated Hyundai Venue is slated for June 16, and the South Korean car maker has officially commenced the bookings of the sub-compact SUV with an initial amount of Rs. 21,000. Customers can book their vehicle at Hyundai dealerships as well as online on the brand’s official website. Apart from this, the manufacturer had earlier shared design sketches of the vehicle indicating major updates given to its front and rear end. According to media reports, the deliveries for the Venue Facelift will start by the end of June.
2022 Hyundai Venue Facelift: Segment first features, connected car tech and more.
Venue Facelift will get segment-first Home to car (H2C) feature with Alexa and Google Voice Assistance supported in both Hindi and English. The H2C will allow customers to control functions such as Find My Car, Remote Climate Control, Speed Alert, Idle Time Alert and more. The infotainment system will be an updated unit, with 60 plus connected car features, through Hyundai’s Blue Link mobile application. The Blue Link supports over the air updates, embedded voice commands and more. To enhance the comfort of passengers, the carmaker has provided 2 step rear reclining seats. The soothing acoustic sound feature with segment-first “sound of nature” is a notable addition. Additionally, the carmaker confirmed the arrival of driving modes in the updated Venue, where the user can switch between Normal, Eco and Sport depending upon their requirement.
2022 Hyundai Venue Facelift: Powertrain, Colour Options and Variant Line-Up
According to the brand, the updated Venue will be offered in up to 5 variants across multiple powertrain options. Engine and gearbox options will remain the same as the outgoing model. This means that the new SUV will come equipped with 2 petrol and 1 diesel engine option. The 1.2 litre naturally aspirated petrol engine that produced 82 bhp, will most likely be limited to the lower variants. The 1.0-litre tGDipetrol mill will make its way to the Venue N-Line trim, with the option of manual and 7-speed DCT transmission. The 1.5 litre CRDi diesel engine will be paired to a 6-speed manual gearbox. However, we expect the carmaker to offer the 6-speed torque converter automatic with the diesel, which is the case with its sibling the Kia Sonet. Seven colour options here will include Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Phantom Black, Denim Blue, Titan Grey, and Fiery Red including one dual-tone paint scheme.
