Hyundai is likely to bring in the facelift version of the Venue sub-compact SUV to India. The Venue facelift model was recently spotted testing in camouflage abroad.

The spy shots, shared by Autospy, shows a completely revised rear section of the SUV, which include a newly designed tailgate, a new bumper, as well as redesigned taillights.
The chrome-plated twin exhaust pipes, as well as alloy wheels seen in the spy shots, hint that there could be also an N-Line version of the Venue soon. These characteristics are seen on the N-Line models from Hyundai. The Korean carmaker launched its first N-Line model in India last year when it drove in the i20.
The front face of the Venue facelift is also likely to come with a redesigned grille, a redesigned bumper as well as a new set of headlights.
