New Delhi: The Hyundai Venue has been a very successful sub-4m compact SUV since its launch in India in May 2019. It has been a very reliable vehicle for Hyundai so far as churning out sales volume is concerned. And now, the automaker is working on the Hyundai Venue facelift. The 2022 Hyundai Venue has been spied in South Korea and here is what we know so far about the updated vehicle.

2022 Hyundai Venue: What is new?

From the spy shots, it becomes ample clear that the Hyundai Venue facelift has been updated at the front and rear. There is an all-new grille. While the split headlamp setup has been retained, the headlamp unit seems too have been tweaked a bit. Some work has been done on the front bumper as well. The Hyundai Venue in the spy images is sitting on a new set of alloy wheels. However, it remains to be seen if these alloys will be introduced in India. At the rear, there are redesigned tail lamps. Even the rear bumper has been redone.
