South Korean company Hyundai recently launched the new Grand i10 Nios and the updated Aura sedan in India. Earlier, Hyundai launched the Hyundai Venue Facelift in the Indian market in June last year. Now the company is working on its 2023 variant. The carmaker updated the sub-4-metre SUV last year, including design updates and the N-Line version. But the update for 2023 will be an updated engine with new features.
Hyundai will upgrade the Venue for 2023 with four airbags as standard, similar to the Grand i10. Hyundai may give consumers an optional upgrade to 6 airbags on any version. According to speculations, the business may introduce the new Hyundai Venue SUV for 2023 in March.
Apart from this important feature, the next big update will be in the form of an engine. Hyundai will continue to offer a diesel engine in the new Venue; however, it will be the same unit used in the Creta. Hyundai will update Creta’s engine to meet the upcoming RDE norms, and the same engine will also be used in the Venue.
An upgraded 1.5-litre diesel engine with 113 horsepower and 250 Nm of torque will be used. The Venue’s current 99 horsepower power-generating engine will be replaced. It will only have a manual transmission, though. In addition to the Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) system, the engine will now include a new start/stop capability.
The 1.0-litre turbocharged engine and the 1.2-litre normally aspirated engine is anticipated to remain in the Venue and produce about equivalent power levels. The Venue is not anticipated to receive any other design modifications beyond these two significant changes because the SUV was unveiled last year with a redesigned appearance.
New features can also be included in the new Hyundai Venue. It will get a more comfortable 5-seater cabin, including fabric upholstery, auto climate control, keyless entry and a multifunctional steering wheel with cruise control. A new touchscreen infotainment system with Blue Link connectivity, wireless charger, 6-speaker audio system, and height-adjustable front seats can be given. It will also get Alexa and Google voice assistant support, which the company has named Home-to-Car (H2C).
