1. First In Segment Features
The 2022 Hyundai Venue offers several segment-first features, including a two-stage reclining rear seat as well as a four-way adjustable power driver’s seat. The automaker also claims that the front seats have been hollowed out to allow more legroom for rear passengers.
2. More high-end equipment
The Hyundai Venue facelift borrows heavily from the company’s common parts bin and benefits from several premium components. This includes the new four-spoke steering wheel from the larger Creta SUV as well as a fully digital driver display. The SUV is packed with premium features including a cooled glove box, keyless entry, power sunroof, ambient lighting, automatic climate control, wireless smartphone charger and more.

3. Improved technological connectivity
Hyundai has made technology improvements inside the new Venue. The subcompact SUV’s 8-inch touchscreen infotainment has been updated to support Alexa and Google Assistant in 10 different regional languages. The feature brings home-to-car connectivity to the model. The BlueLink connected car technology has also been upgraded and offers more than 60 features.
4. Responsible for safety
In terms of safety, the new Venue facelift comes with a lot of features like six airbags, rear parking camera with guidelines, tire pressure monitoring system, hill assist control and more. Most of these features are available on higher trims, while base variants get two airbags as standard.
5. Responsive Engines
The powertrain has always been a highlight on the Venue and the facelift ensures that the same units are retained. The naturally aspirated 1.2-litre petrol engine develops 82 hp and 114 Nm of maximum torque and is paired only with a 5-speed manual gearbox. Next up is the peppy 1.0-liter turbo-petrol engine with 118 hp and 172 Nm of peak torque. The motor is mated to a 7-speed DCT and a 6-speed iMT unit. The DCT version also comes with paddle shifters and three driving modes – Eco, Normal and Sport. Finally, there’s the peppy, fuel-efficient 1.5-litre diesel with 99bhp and 240Nm and a 6-speed manual gearbox. Unfortunately, the Venue doesn’t get a diesel-automatic combination seen on its cousin, the Kia Sonet.
