As for the cosmetic upgrades, the revised exterior boasts a sleeker, bolder look. It certainly elevates the look, and the upgraded grille adds to the butch visuals. The rectangular chrome-studded grille is accentuated as the Venue retains its split headlight setup but with additional LED lighting. The side profile remains the same, with its side cladding and boxy overall look, barring the addition of the geometric 16-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. On the rear, a redesigned bumper and LED taillights complete the look.
The interior styling has been updated with a dual-tone colour theme and upholstery. Some of the biggest updates for the Venue come in the form of a 4-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, an 8-inch infotainment system that is compatible with both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, two-step reclining rear seats, and updated BlueLink connected car tech. Another cool feature has been introduced in the facelifted Venue, when you are not in the mood for music, you can play sounds of nature inside the car! Other features like auto AC, cruise control, 6 airbags, hill-assist, climate control, a sunroof, and wireless phone charging (USB Type A, Type C and 12V socket) remain in the new facelift.
