A Preview of the 2023 Hyundai Venue

Hyundai released the first images of the new Venue in India.

Hyundai took the opportunity of the recent New York Auto Show to unveil the new livery of its three-row SUV, the Palisade. The 2023 model features a more “rugged” front-end look with a grille that’s rich in chrome rectangles. In fact, it seems that this is the look the design department has adopted because the first images of the 2023 Venue have just been released in India.

In fact, the urban SUV was presented with a grill similar to the most recent models of the Korean brand. The new grille has been inserted between the existing light clusters, but the daytime running lights at the upper ends of the grille are new, as is the bumper design.

Of course, the wheels are also redesigned, as is the rear section, which drops the square marker lights in favor of a signature design reminiscent of the IONIQ 5 electric crossover with its pixelated LEDs. On the other hand, the Venue – remember that it’s the Indian model – is entitled to this thin strip that crosses the tailgate. Finally, the lower rear portion mimics the design integrated into the front bumper.

At the time of writing, the North American wing of the automaker hasn’t revealed anything about its 2023 Venue, but it’s a safe bet that its most affordable model will be redesigned for the new year, especially since the changes don’t stop there. We’ll have to wait until the North American model is unveiled on June 16.

As is often the case, new features have been added to the package, especially in the Venue’s infotainment system, which is aimed at a younger, more connected clientele. The in-house system has at least 60 applications and even the ability to control some of the vehicle’s parameters remotely via the H2C (Home to Car) application using Alexa and the Google assistant. It will be possible to lock the doors, check the gas level or even start the air conditioning.)

What’s more, the rear seat will now be equipped with a backrest adjustment to improve the comfort of rear-seat occupants. It’s too early to tell if Hyundai will opt for a new powertrain under the hood of its urban utility vehicle. The vehicle relies on the same powertrain as the now-defunct Accent, as both vehicles share a platform. Let’s bet that the 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine good for 121 horsepower and 113 lb-ft will be kept in place, while waiting for electric reinforcements in this category, which is aimed at a less affluent clientele.
