It still gets the same wide smoked chrome grille at the front with indicators the top and headlights positioned on the lower part of the bumper. It even gets the same almost square shaped DRLs and fog lamps with a faux skid plate at the bottom of the bumper. The design of the alloys, features like wireless charging, touchscreen infotainment system all remain unchanged in the BS6 version also.

The other engine on offer is the 1.0 litre, 3-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine 118 bhp and 172 Nm of torque.
BS4 version of the Hyundai Venue used to come with a 1.4 litre diesel unit, that has been discontinued and is replaced with a new 1.5 litre turbocharged diesel unit from Kia Seltos which is BS6 compliant. Exact power and torque figures that this engine will produce is not officially revealed by Hyundai but it is expected to generate around 100 PS of power. It could also make more torque – about 240 Nm.
