Hyundai’s first-ever sub-4m compact SUV is getting a makeover. The Venue, which was launched two years ago in the Indian market is set to get a facelift in July this year. The information comes from CarBlogIndia. The Venue facelift will launch just before the arrival of the all-new Maruti Suzuki Vitara Brezza.
Hyundai is currently running test mules of the upcoming Venue in the Indian market. The vehicle was spotted several times on the Indian roads. The new Venue will get a completely new face. The look is heavily inspired by the Hyundai Tucson, which is also due in the Indian market. It will arrive in the coming months.

The new Venue gets the new parametric grille. Even the current Hyundai Venue gets the split headlamp set-up and it is the same in the Venue that has been rendered here. However, the headlamps have been updated with a new-age design and it looks much better. The grille has become much larger than the current version of the Venue and it now also includes the headlamps, adding a masculine and larger look to the car.
Venue N-Line is on its way as well
The Hyundai Venue N-Line was recently spied doing trial runs in a camouflaged avatar on the roads of South Korea, which suggest that the model might make its way to the Indian shores as well.
In the test mules, it can be seen that the Venue N-Line will come with an N-Line badge on the front fender, along with red accents on the lower front bumper, rear bumper, roof rails and front brake callipers. These are some visual differentiators which also are present in the Hyundai i20 N-Line available in India. The Hyundai Venue N-Line was also spotted with a new design for the 16-inch machined alloy wheels and also has a dual exhaust port setup at the back.
Apart from these visual differentiators, the new Hyundai Venue N-Line will also get all the aesthetic changes that are supposed to make their debut in the facelifted version of the standard Venue.
On the inside, the new Venue is expected to retain the cabin layout, albeit with a couple of feature additions like ventilated front seats and a revised instrument console. The N-Line version of the SUV is expected to get an all-black interior with red accents and ‘N-Line’ logos at places.
Like the i20 N-Line, the new Hyundai Venue N-Line will be available solely with a 1.0-litre three-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine with two transmission choices of 6-speed iMT and 7-speed DCT. Though, the power and torque outputs are expected to remain the same at 120 PS and 172 Nm respectively. It is safe to say that the Venue N-Line might be launched in India after Hyundai brings the facelifted Venue to the Indian shores.
