Around the rear, the Hyundai Venue gets a set of squared off tail-lights. Top-spec variants of the SUV will get a sunroof.
As we had mentioned earlier, the Venue will be offered with both, petrol and diesel powertrains; specifically two petrol and one diesel engine. The petrol engines will be a 1.2-litre, naturally aspirated, four-cylinder motor making 83hp and 115Nm of torque, along with a new 1.0-litre, three-cylinder, turbocharged motor that puts out 120hp and 172Nm of torque.
