2022 Hyundai Venue Review – My Dream My Car : Hello friends, if you are thinking of buying a “Car” and you have no detailed idea about car, I welcome you to this blog. Today I will let you know – “2022 Hyundai Venue Review”.

The Hyundai Venue is a jack of all trades. Spread across a wide price band ranging between Rs 7.53 lakh-12.57 lakh, and offered with multiple engine and transmission options, the Venue caters to a broad set of buyers. Like the outgoing version, it is still very user-friendly; the engines are smooth and refined; controls are light and ergonomics are spot on.

Hyundai has even addressed rear passenger comfort to an extent. It’s also feature-loaded, although the inclusion of ventilated front seats and a 360-degree camera would have completed the package. The Venue might not be the toughest, the most spacious or the comfiest compact SUV, but it does reasonably well in most areas, and that makes it a formidable contender in its space.

Highlights of 2022 Hyundai Venue Review

The Venue is a front-wheel drive 4 door with 5 seats, powered by a 1.6L INLINE 4 engine that has 90 kW of power (at 6300 rpm) and 151 Nm of torque (at 4850 rpm) via a Six-speed Manual. HYUNDAI claims the Venue uses 7L/100km of Unleaded Petrol in the combined city and highway cycle while putting out 160g of CO2. It has a 45L fuel tank, meaning it should be able to travel 643km per full tank.

The Venue measures 1592mm (62.7 inches) in height, 4040mm (159.1 inches) in length, 1770mm (69.7 inches) in width with a 2520mm (99.2 inches) wheelbase that brings about a total of 1140kg (2513.3 lbs) of unladen weight. The Venue comes standard with 185/65 R15 88H front tyres and 185/65 R15 88H rear tyres. It requires a service every 12 months or 15,000 km, whichever comes first.

2022 Hyundai Venue Review – My Dream My Car

2022 Hyundai Venue Review

The Hyundai Venue competes in one of the hottest segments of the Indian car market – the sub-4m SUV segment. It has been a very successful product for Hyundai, consistently managing to sell ~10,000 units per month. The Venue constitutes 22% of Hyundai India’s revenue and is sold in 40+ countries. More than 50% of Hyundai’s sales come from SUVs, with compact SUVs accounting for the majority.

In a cut-throat market that every manufacturer wants a piece of the pie of, Hyundai has brought out several updates to the Venue to keep it competitive in the segment. On the outside, the Venue gets redesigned lamp clusters, front and rear ends and new alloy wheels. While changes to the exterior have been mostly cosmetic, the interior sees a host of feature additions. The car now gets a fully digital instrument cluster, driving modes, paddle shifters (for the DCT), 4-way electrically adjustable driver seat, two-step reclining rear seatbacks and more. The car is equipped with BlueLink with more than 60 features. It can now be paired with Alexa for a host of Home2Car features such as Remote Door Lock/Unlock, Remote Climate Control, Find My Car among others. The infotainment system gets 12 languages.

The Venue gets the same 1.2L petrol, 1.0L turbo-petrol and the 1.5L diesel engine options as before. These are mated to various transmissions – 5-speed MT (1.2L petrol), the 6-speed iMT or 7-speed DCT (1.0L turbo-petrol), and the 6-speed MT (1.5L diesel).

2022 Hyundai Venue Review : Specification

The 2021 Venue carries over to 2022 without any fundamental changes. However, the flagship Denim trim is renamed to Limited to bring it in line with other Hyundais, but the distinctive Denim exterior color with the white roof remains available, although is is now also joined by two more two-tone finishes – Galactic Gray and Ceramic White, both with a black roof. An immobilizer, previously unavailable on the bottom two trims, is now fitted as standard across the board.

A power tilting/sliding sunroof – previously reserved for the top trim – becomes standard on the mid-tier SEL this year while the Limited trim strangely loses this feature. The Premium Package containing the sunroof that used to be available to the SEL falls away, meaning other features that used to be included in it, such as LED headlights, navigation, and heated front seats are no longer available on this trim.

2022 Hyundai Venue Review 2022 : Impressive Looks

Talking about the design of the new Venue, the changes to the design are subtle when you look at it. The large cascading chrome-lined grille is now replaced by a wide boxy metallic finished grille and Hyundai calls the new grille its parametric theme. The bumper also gets a refreshed design too and the Venue now gets all-LED lighting.

The silhouette of the SUV remains the same but the compact SUV now gets newly designed 16-inch multi-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in 215/60 section tyres, which uplift the SUV’s stance.

Moving on to the back, the Venue gets LED tail lamps that run from one end to the other end similar to the Kia Sonet. This accentuates the width of the car, giving it a dynamic road presence. Just like the front, the rear bumper to has been re-designed. Due to all the exterior changes, the Venue now looks more young and sporty than the previous generation.

The car is offered with 7 colour options, including Polar White, Typhoon Silver, Phantom Black, Denim Blue, Titan Grey, Fiery Red, and Fiery Red with a black roof.

Unlike the exterior, the changes on the inside are minimal. Get inside and there’s a new instrument cluster welcoming you which looks similar to the one you can find in the Kia Carens. The Venue also gets get three drive modes: Eco, Normal, and Sport and the instrumental cluster change colour depending upon the drive mode you select.

The SUV features an 8-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. It is sharp, easy to operate and now it also gets Nature sounds in-built l. Importantly, the new 8-inch touchscreen infotainment has been updated to support Alexa and Google Assistant in 10 different regional languages. Alexa and Google pairing brings home-to-car connectivity to the model. The BlueLink connected car tech has also seen an upgrade and now comes with more than 60 features.

Additionally, the new Venue gets a steering wheel borrowed from the Creta and it also gets a segment-first four-way adjustable electric seat for the driver, two-step reclining rear seats, ambient lighting, USB Type-C charging port and Air-purifier.

There are all of the expected features, like auto climate control, a cooled glove box, a sunroof (not panoramic) and wireless phone charging also on offer in the top variant.The rest of the interior remains largely similar to the previous generation except for the additional features and changes mentioned above.

Moving on to the rear seat, the legroom and knee room has been improved than the previous generation, and the back portion of the front seats has been scooped out which increases legroom and knee room. The rear seat is also new and it offers more under-thigh support and therefore is more comfortable. Another segment-first feature here is that two-step reclining function for the rear seats, this allows you to choose the recline angle of your needs and that adds a bit more comfort.

2022 Hyundai Venue Review 2022 : Powertrain & Range

The new Venue gets the same set of three engine options that the outgoing model was offered with. In fact, the two petrol engines and the one common-rail diesel engine are being offered in the same state of tune too. There is a rationalised set of new trim variants on offer for the powertrains, including, now a fully-loaded, top-end for the 7-speed DCT (dual-clutch) gearbox variant. The two petrol engines on offer are the 1.2-litre MPFi and the one-litre Turbo GDi; and the diesel engine is the same 1.5-litre U2 CRDi that generates 100PS of peak power and 240Nm of torque.

This engine only gets a 6-speed manual transmission. The one-litre, 3-cylinder, turbocharged engine is the most powerful delivering 120PS of peak power and 172Nm of torque. This mill gets the 7-DCT and the clutch-free manual iMT (intelligent manual) transmission. The two E and S base trim variants of the new Venue are offered only with the 1.2-litre petrol engine. This one generates 83PS of power and about 114Nm of torque; and the only gearbox that is offered with this is the 5-speed manual transmission.

Overall, the performance of the powertrains remains the same compared to last year’s model, with minor changes to the throttle map. A more elaborate variation to the mapping done for the three drive modes – Eco, Normal and Sport. The mode selector is a rotary knob, and the feature is available only with the 7-speed DCT variant. The suspension geometry and settings have been carried forward from the current Venue and the on-road performance is also very similar.

This is still a good thing because on broken tarmac the Venue feels stolid, and it only tends to thud through some seriously large potholes. Rear wheels still get drum brakes, while the front gets discs. But the new Venue does get more safety equipment. Two front airbags, ABS with EBD, parking sensors and ISOFIX mounts are all standard across variants. The top-end variant also gets side and curtain airbags, in addition to a suite of other safety equipment.

2022 Hyundai Venue Review : Performance

Hyundai has not made any changes to the engine of the new Venue. It will be offered with the same 1.5-litre CRDi diesel engine as before, along with 1.0-litre Turbo GDi and 1.2-litre MPi Kappa petrol engine options. Transmission options will continue to be 6-speed manual or IMT as well as DCT gearbox.

The 1.2-litre petrol engine produces 83 PS of power and 114 Nm of torque and is mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. More powerful than this is the turbo motor which generates 120 PS and 172 Nm of torque. While the diesel engine generates 100 PS of power and 240 Nm of torque. The turbo petrol engine is mated to a 6-speed semi-automatic gearbox and 7-speed DCT unit, while the diesel engine comes mated to a 6-speed manual transmission.

We tested the 1.0-liter turbo-petrol model equipped with an iMT clutchless manual gearbox. Developing 120hp/172Nm, this is the most performance focused variant in the line-up.

Power delivery is strong and ample torque makes cruising effortless. The iMT gearbox is also an improvement in terms of shift quality.

The VENUE continues to have excellent high speed stability and a reasonably pliant ride quality.

2022 Hyundai Venue Review : Riding & Comfort

On the ride and handling front, the Venue’s steering weighs up nicely but lacks feel, especially in the dead ahead position. At highway speeds, the car offers decent straight-line stability but does tend to skip over undulations and bumps commonly associated with concrete roads like the outer ring road of Hyderabad that we had our test drive on. As a car to use in city conditions, the Venue shines with a tight turning circle, easy-to-judge edges and light steering.

The low-speed ride is effective in absorbing most bumps and imperfections without displacing the occupants in the cabin, and this, combined with the high ground clearance, your progress will rarely be halted for lack of good roads.

Where Hyundai has spent a large chunk of its upgrade budget is the cabin and feature list of the Venue. The all-black cabin has been replaced by a greige and black cabin which looks nice but is a colour scheme that will quickly pick up dust and stains. The automaker, under its Mobis programme, does offer a variety of coloured seat covers for the Venue.

Up front, you get a new steering wheel and digital instrument cluster as a part of the update. The D-cut steering wheel, as Hyundai calls it, has been taken from the Creta while the cluster is shared with the i20. Both are welcome additions and help a lot in uplifting the overall appearance of the cabin. Hyundai has also added a first-in-segment power function for the driver’s seat, which is fancy in terms of checking off tick boxes but looks like it has come at the cost of ventilated front seats that its sister car, the Kia Sonet, already offers.

In a bid to liberate more space in the back, Hyundai has scooped out the seat back of the front seats, added a two-step recline for the left side seat and scooped out the roof above the rear section. These, combined with the two-tone colour scheme and sunroof, give the impression of more space at the back, but that’s something we can only tell you when we get our hands on the car for a longer period.

On the feature front, in addition to everything already available on the SX (O) trim, you get an in-built air purifier, power driver’s seat, wireless charger and even sounds of nature on the infotainment system. My favourite is the coffee shop, which isn’t natural at all but does certainly give you that vibe. Hyundai has also put its weight behind Bluelink connected car technology and added over 60 features as well home to car technology that lets you control some of the car functions via an Alexa or Google Home. On the safety front, this top-spec model gets six airbags, ABS, EBD, ESC, vehicle stability management, hill assist, a reverse camera with dynamic guidelines and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

Our Opinion

The 2022 Hyundai Venue is a good buy overall and a good pick for shoppers with a limited budget. It’s affordably priced, well equipped, and easy to live with day to day. That being said, its engine isn’t particularly powerful, and it can struggle to motivate the SUV at highway speeds. The Venue is not available with all-wheel drive, and its cargo capacity is modest. If this gives you pause, you may want to check out alternatives like the Mazda CX-30 , Kia Seltos , Volkswagen Taos , or even the larger Hyundai Tucson .
