Hyundai Motor Company recently launched the 2022 Venue facelift in India. The new model features plenty of design changes over the older one, along with some extra features. With the update, many people are wondering how Venue now compares to its elder sibling – Creta.
If you were also wondering how the new Venue facelift fares against Creta, then check out our detailed comparison below!
Exterior design and dimensions
On paper, the facelifted Hyundai Venue is taller than the older model by 12mm, while other dimensions remain the same. The little SUV has been significantly restyled, featuring a completely new grille, an updated headlamp setup, and a new taillight setup. Overall, it looks much more aggressive than before.
As for Hyundai Creta, it maintains its polarising design. The unique headlamp and taillight setup attract a lot of attention, as does the cascading front grille. However, we’re waiting for Creta to receive a facelift, as the updated model (available overseas) looks way cooler.
