According to ACI, the all-new Venue is in the works and it will be the first car to be manufactured in the new Hyundai factory. The all-new Venue will come to the market in 2025. The Talegaon plant will have the capacity to build 1.5 lakh cars every year. Hyundai is pumping in Rs 5,000 crore in the new plant and it will add to the current capacity of 8.2 lakh unit capacity in Hyundai’s Chennai plant. Hyundai has a plan to manufacture one million units every year and the new plant will help the brand achieve the goal.

The Hyundai Venue became the brand’s first sub-4m compact SUV in the Indian market. The second-generation car codenamed as Q2Xi, will continue to attract customers as the first-generation model did. According to Hyundai, the first-gen Venue has sold more than 4.5 lakh units since its launch in India.

The Venue has been a steady seller in the segment and takes on the likes of the Kia Sonet, Maruti Brezza, Mahindra XUV300 and the Tata Nexon, which will get its facelifted version next month.

Venue facelift was launched in 2022

As a facelift model, the overall shape of the car remained exactly the same. However, significant changes were made to the appearance, ensuring that the new Venue stood out in comparison to the pre-facelift model.

One of the most noticeable alterations on the exterior was seen in the front grille. Hyundai had updated the grille to resemble the new parametric grille of the all-new Tucson, which was scheduled for launch in the Indian market the following month. The substantial front grille extended to incorporate the DRLs and turn indicators. The headlamps were positioned on the bumper, similar to the pre-facelift model.

Hyundai thoroughly updated the cabin of the new Venue as well. The 2022 Venue came with a digitised instrument cluster with a two-tone finish for the upholstery. The infotainment system was new and had become larger than before. The 8-inch infotainment screen offered multiple connectivity options such as wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It also offered Alexa and Google Home integration, enabling the Hyundai Venue to stay connected to smart home devices.

The front seats were ventilated, and ambient lighting was also present. The new Venue also offered a Bose sound system, a feature seen in models like the Creta.

Hyundai added numerous features to the facelifted Venue. The comprehensive list included a four-way powered driver seat, wireless charging system, automatic climate control, sunroof, and BlueLink with more than 60 connected features. The updated BlueLink system was available in 12 languages and allowed over-the-air firmware updates.
