At the rear the new designed L shaped tail maps would lead to the newly designed boot lid and the bumpers at the front as well as the rear would also get major redesigns to compliment the over all new styling.

Venue to get a N-Line version
The venue as reported by Auto Car would also get a N-line version just like the i20 and this would increase the no of offerings in the market for Hyundai as well, the N- line version has also been spotted testing earlier as is all set to receive a remodeled front as well as rear bumper with dual exhaust tips poking out , the car would get a similar engine as the i20 N line with a 999 cc turbocharged engine mated to an 7 speed DCT as well as a Imt on option.
Engine options for the standard Venue are expected to continue as is – a 1.2-litre petrol and a 1.5-litre diesel. It remains to be seen whether the 1.0-litre turbo-petrol will be offered on the non-N Line Venue with the facelift.
