We already have seen first spy pictures of the mid-cycle facelift Hyundai Venue. The current generation Venue was released at NY AutoShow in 2019. Now Hyundai plans to add a N-Line variant as recent spy pictures showed a prototype with the badge and red accents.
What we know so far?
We recently have seen the very first pictures of Hyundai Venue facelift, but these are the clearest images. Thanks to Hyundai who have removed the canvas camouflage we can take a closer look to the rear where we can see a completely new taillights and bumper.
The vehicle was caught following a test car caravan including Hyundai Palisade facelift, Genesis GV80, Genesis G90 (still with camouflage) or Hyundai HB20.
It is pretty difficult to see what’s under the heavy camouflage, but looks like Hyundai will introduce many changes to try to redirect its sales performance in markets like South Korea or U.S. where the compact SUV is far from successful.
The Venue should receive latest safety pack, as well as new IT system, maybe 8” to a 10,25″ larger screen and a full digital cluster (like the one in the refreshed Kona).
What do you expect?
Hyundai should had a Hybrid. This competes with the smallest crossovers like the Toyota CH-R. But the strange thing is that the Venue is smaller than the Honda HR-V, but it doesn’t compete with the HR-V. The Kona competes with that. The only other competitor to the Venue other than the CH-R is the Mazda CX-3, but it got discontinued after the 2021 model year. But Hyundai should consider adding a hybrid to compete with the CH-R. I mean it’s a small nitpick. Hyundai probably add a Hybrid or PHEV in the redesign which should happen in 2024/2025.
