2020 Hyundai Venue

       

   
       

Overview

       

The 2020 Venue joins Hyundai's versatile lineup of vehicles, nicely filling the compact crossover slot, just below the Kona (the Venue is shorter by 5 inches). With an array of sought-after driver-assist features and connectivity technology, plus excellent fuel economy and affordability, it's destined for success. Its main competitors will be the Kia Soul, the Toyota C-HR, and Honda's pair of compact crossovers, the HR-V and Fit.

Trims and Powertrain

   

The Venue is front-wheel drive and comes in two trim levels, the SE and SE. The powertrain consists of a fuel-efficient 121 horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and a choice of either a six-speed manual or intelligent variable automatic transmission (IVT). While specific numbers regarding fuel economy haven't been announced yet, the Venue is expected to get a combined city/highway around 33 mpg.

   
   

   

Functional Utility and Tech

   

Although it's the smallest utility vehicle in the Korean automaker's lineup, there's sufficient space and comfort for driver and passengers alike. Every Venue has a 60/40 split flat-folding second-row seat, and in the cargo area there's a functional and convenient rear covering shelf to keep your cargo out of view from wandering eyes on the outside. The seating arrangements can be configured to accommodate different shapes and sizes of cargo as well. The total interior volume is measured at 110.6 cubic feet, which is about 2 inches smaller than the compact Kona crossover, and the cargo capacity with the seats up and down is 18.7 cu. ft. and 31.9 cu. ft., respectively.

   

Both trims are outfitted with a six-speaker audio system, an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, app-based navigation, streaming audio services, voice recognition, and a rearview camera system. The SEL receives roof rails as well as underfloor cargo storage; it's also eligible for the optional Premium Package, which adds heated front seats, heated side mirrors, daytime running lights, and LED headlights and taillights. There's also a Sunroof Package and a separate Connectivity Package that provides integrated navigation and Blue Link telematics services. With Blue Link, you'll have access to both Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant, which can be used to do all sorts of things like start your vehicle with a simple voice command. Blue Link also includes a feature called Geo Fence that lets drivers select boundaries for their Venue and can even monitor its movements when the driver is not around.

   
   

Safety

   

The Venue wouldn't be what it is without its impressive list of advanced driver aids. Some of the highlights include forward collision avoidance assist, lane keeping assist, blind-spot collision warning, and rear collision cross-traffic warning. What's more, this Venue comes with a selector features for improved drive modes, including one for snowy conditions. While most of these active safety features are pretty standard across the industry, the newer driver attention warning system is gaining steam with many of the latest 2020 models, since it can monitor and detect driver fatigue and distraction.
