Additionally, the upcoming model will be available in seven color options Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Phantom Black, Denim Blue, Titan Gray and Fiery Red (also available in dual-tone with a black roof).
The front is highlighted by a large restyled grille and a new bumper with a wider black insert. The headlights also get a dark tinge and are complemented by a new LED DRL pattern. Additionally, the vehicle features a new skid plate pattern on the lower half of the bumper.
The sides don't get any major design upgrades compared to the current model; however, to freshen it up, the Venue's facelift will have sleeker ORVMs with turn indicators and restyled two-tone alloy wheels.
The rear profile receives significant updates over the current model and LED taillights are now attached. Additionally, the rear bumper now has a thick, dark insert with reflectors at both ends along with a wide skid plate in the lower half. To complement the overall styling, the compact SUV will get a body-color spoiler, shark fin antenna, and silver roof rails. The sunroof is expected to be offered on higher spec variants.
As for the interior, the 2022 Hyundai Venue will have a two-tone black and beige theme.
