Hyundai India is gearing up for the launch of facelifted Venue compact SUV and a rendering shows what it could look like
The 2022 Hyundai Venue facelift is slated to launch in the coming weeks, as per one of our vendor sources. The compact SUV has been spotted testing on the roads multiple times now. To keep the product fresh in an increasingly competitive compact SUV segment, Hyundai wants to ensure that its Venue remains updated. This is also done to ensure that it stands its ground against the likes of the upcoming facelifted Maruti Brezza, which is the one to beat. Then there is the Tata Nexon which has been doing healthy sales month after month.

The tail end might resemble the current-gen model to some extent but there will be updated elements.
