2023 Hyundai Venue Compact SUV Leaked Ahead of Launch in India
Hyundai has been working on a facelift of its compact SUV for quite some time. Upcoming Hyundai Venue 2023 is set to be released in India. The unmasked photographs of the facelifted car have emerged on the internet before its official appearance. The fresh images reveal the design improvements and tell us what to expect from the new vehicle.
The 2023 Hyundai Creta SUV heavily influenced the new Hyundai Venue as the front features the ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design concept, as well as a new wide piano black grille. This style is also reminiscent of the future Hyundai Tucson. They have updated the LED DRLs to create a more appealing appearance. Additionally, the front bumper has been redesigned with a straight bar-like air dam design.
While the side profile features new 16-inch alloy wheels, the back appearance has been extensively modified. The taillights are LEDs, introducing KIA Sonet-like a light bar between the taillamps makes the rear design more interesting. The rear bumper has a straight bar-like piano blacked-out style and will include rear fog lamps.
Mechanically, no significant modifications are planned with the facelifted vehicle. This means that Hyundai will continue to offer three powertrain options for the Venue. The base model will be equipped with a 1.2L naturally aspirated petrol engine and a 5-speed manual transmission. A 1.0-litre turbocharged gasoline engine will also be available with the 6-speed manual transmission.
Options include a 6-speed iMT semi-automatic or a 7-speed DCT automatic transmission. The efficient 1.5-litre diesel engine will also be available with a 6-speed manual transmission. Hyundai, like the KIA Sonet, is slated to include a 6-speed torque converter for the diesel model.
The new Venue will be released in India by next month and because of the addition of more features and technology, the pricing might be more than the present model. Competitors for the upcoming Hyundai Venue are; Tata Nexon, Mahindra XUV300, KIA Sonet, and the Maruti Suzuki Brezza 2023.
