Hyundai will launch the 2022 Venue in the Indian market on June 16. It will come with a redesigned exterior and slightly updated interiors. Now a video has surfaced on the internet where the Venue 2022 can clearly be seen.
In the video we can see that the Venue was finished in the Typhoon Silver paint scheme. Other color options offered are Titan Grey, Denim Blue, Phantom Black, Polar White and Fairy Red. You can also get a two-tone paint option which is Fiery Red with Phantom Black roof.
Variants and prices
The 2022 Venue will be offered in five variants. E, S, S+ or S(O), SX and SX(O). On the diesel engine, the intermediate variant will be called the S+ and with the petrol engine, it will be called the S(O).
The current venue price starts at Rs 7.11 Lakh ex-showroom. And Rs 11.84 lakh goes up ex-showroom. Once the facelift is introduced, Hyundai will increase prices slightly.
Engine and gearbox
Hyundai will continue to offer the Venue with three engine options. It will be powered by a 1.0 liter turbocharged gasoline engine, a 1.5 liter diesel engine and a 1.2 liter naturally aspirated gasoline engine. The turbo petrol will be offered with S(O) and SX(O) and the diesel engine will be offered with S+, SX and SX(O). The naturally aspirated engine will be offered with all variants except the top-of-the-line SX(O) variant.
The turbo petrol produces 120 PS of maximum power and 172 Nm. It is mated to a 6-speed iMT automatic or 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. The diesel engine produces 100 PS of maximum power and 240 Nm of maximum torque. It will only be offered with a 6-speed manual gearbox. The naturally aspirated petrol engine produces 83 hp of peak power and 113 Nm of peak torque. It will only be offered with a 5-speed manual gearbox.
Hyundai has also added three driving modes. Eco, Normal and Sport. At this time, we don’t know what engine and gearbox combination the manufacturer will offer for the new drive mode. The drive mode rotary knob is located just behind the gear lever.
New features added to the Venue are the two-stage recline function for the rear seats. Thus, the rear occupants benefit from an additional level of comfort. Additionally, this feature will also help increase trunk space by moving the seatback forward. There is also a new D-cut steering wheel which has been carried over from the Creta.
Then there’s a new digital instrument cluster that’s been borrowed from the Kia Carens. Home to Car is a voice command that you can use via Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant. There are over 60 BlueLink connected car features. The touchscreen infotainment system remains the same. So it’s still an 8-inch unit, but now it gets 10 regional languages and nature sounds.
A few major changes have been made to the exterior. On top, there’s a new parametric grille that we’ve seen on other Hyundai vehicles as well. The projector headlights and the LED daytime running lights remain the same, but all the indicators have been modified. There is also a new front bumper.
New alloy wheels were given on the side. The rear taillights are new. They are split units and use LEDs. The biggest change is the new light bar that houses the taillights. The rear bumper is also new with new reflectors and reverse lights.
