Kia Sonet’s entry in the sub-compact SUV segment has made an already competitive segment much more competitive. Currently, in India, there are around 8 cars competing in the same segment, some of which have been the segment leaders since a long time. The sub-compact SUV segment has become highly popular due to its price/size ratio. Tata Nexon which was launched in 2017, has already received a facelift. Find out below 2021 Hyundai Venue Facelift Expectations.
The new 2021 Hyundai Venue facelift will have new features like different alloy wheel design, better-connected car tech, beige interiors and better sound system. Other recent cars which have been launched in the market have set the benchmark high. The 2021 Hyundai Venue Facelift is also expected to come with ventilated/cooled seats, 360-degree parking, and ambient lighting.
The lack of diesel automatic is a huge flaw for the current generation Venue. Hyundai will definitely launch a diesel automatic to bring back customers. Hyundai could also launch an anniversary edition of the car in India as Venue has completed two years. A new 10.25-inch touchscreen can also be expected in the top trims of the vehicle to keep up with the industry standards.
Any exterior changes?
We do not expect any major change in the exteriors of the car just like the Jeep Compass facelift which was recently launched. Only the interiors will get a major overhaul. However Hyundai launched Venue Flux in Korea and if it brings the same car to India, it may turn out to be a completely different story.
The face of the Hyundai Venue Flux gets a refreshed new look along with a bigger and bolder front grille which makes it in league with the MG Hector, Hyundai Kona and SantaFe. Dark coloured mesh replaces the chrome grille from the standard Hyundai Venue. The single paint option as of now includes a single cosmic grey paint shade along with an acid-yellow roof which looks more like green colour. Wing mirrors, front and rear bumpers, wheel arches and body side moulding all feature the contrast colour accents.
Engine and Performance
Hyundai Venue currently comes with three engine options: 1.5L Diesel, 1.2L Petrol and 1.0L Turbo Petrol. The same engines will also be available with the 2021 Hyundai Venue Facelift. Flux on the other hand was launched with a 1.6-litre Smartstream Petrol engine which powers the front-wheel-drive car. It comes with a CVT automatic transmission producing 123hp and 154Nm of torque. Three driving modes namely Sport, Eco and Normal along with three traction modes Snow, Mud and Sand are present.
