A few months ago, Hyundai began work on the facelift of the Venue compact SUV. Initial spy footage indicated a redesigned front fascia and rear profile underneath the black sheets. While you can read more about it here, this time around, the Venue drops the voluminous black sheets and wears a close-fitting camo outfit that reveals the rear exterior styling.

In new spy images that have appeared on the web, the prototype can be seen with a redesigned set of taillights. The square headlights have been swapped out for sleeker split units, while the reflectors on the restyled rear bumper also sport a new shape. Meanwhile, the overall silhouette of the SUV has been maintained and other new elements include a new design for the alloy wheels. The front fascia will retain the split headlight configuration, while the grille and bumper are expected to be modified. Details regarding the cabin are scarce at the moment. However, it could benefit from a fresh interior theme, more features, and newer technology.
