Hyundai continues to test on public roads an updated version of the Venue crossover, which first hit the market two years ago. The spy photos were at the disposal of the RushLane portal: from them it is possible to draw a conclusion about the changes that will occur in the exterior of the model. For example, the front optics are now located in two tiers – at the top there are narrow strips of LED navigation lights, below – the main headlight unit. And the taillights are shaped like those that are installed on the Opel Mokka.
With the update, Venue may change positioning: a relatively inexpensive crossover (in India, prices start at 699 thousand rupees, which is about 9,300 in dollars) will add “expensive” options: a fully digital dashboard and a widescreen multimedia system instead of the current one eight-inch.
The engine lineup will remain the same. In the Indian market, the Venue is powered by a 1.2-liter 82 horsepower engine mated to a five-speed manual transmission. Also, the crossover is available with a 115-horsepower diesel engine, working not only with a six-speed “mechanics”, but also with a six-speed automatic. The third unit in the range is a 1.0 turbo engine (118 hp) in tandem with an automatic transmission or a preselective “robot”.
