Hyundai’s latest model addition into the competitive SUV market is an entry-level small crossover, which is well-considered, ultra appealing and engineered with the most modern features and functions. With their Venue, Hyundai has perfected that elusive mix of style and seamless versatility for first-time car owners and many second car families.
“The Venue is a feature-filled, comfortable and convenient vehicle in a small but practical package,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president Product, Corporate and Digital Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “For consumers seeking modern, forward-thinking and iconic design, connectivity, maneuverability and protection in various driving environments, Venue fits the bill perfectly.”
The Venue designed for that city dweller who often finds on-street parking the most convenient option and for non-urban families that demand ease, functionality, and versatility in their primary or second car. The Venue is the perfect car for recent grads that will be taking a car to a college campus or starting their professional paths.
Photograph on location in around Miami, Florida the 2020 Venue is packed with premium driver safety and convenience technologies that are found on a car costing more. The Venue exhibits a compact but confident design that Hyundai told us is part of their signature design language. The full-volume wheel arches and strong character lines the side profile gives the Venue a premium look, while the cascading grille incorporates Hyundai’s forward first vision. Venue’s interior is also modernistic, sleek and stylish and complete with intuitive ease of use.
The Venue also offers an advanced traction control stability mode that includes Normal for best fuel economy, Sport and Snow. For the folks that find themselves in snow from time to time, the Venue doesn’t come in an all-wheel-drive but the Snow mode will adjust between deep snow and packed snow, using just the torque needed to break inertia and maintain traction.
The Venue has three trim levels: SE (Manual Transmission) or SE Intelligent Variable Transmission (IVT) automatic, SEL (IVT) or the two-toned exterior Denim (IVT), each including the all-new Smartstream 1.6-liter Dual-Port Injection four-cylinder FWD engine.
Seven colors are available, including Black Noir Pearl, Ceramic White, Scarlet Red Pearl, Intense Blue, Stellar Silver, Galactic Gray, and Green Apple. The Denim color is exclusively featured on the Denim edition along with a contrasting white roof and select trim pieces, but it is the Denim trim package that is the style stand out. It includes exclusive Denim exterior color, contrasting white roof and select trim pieces, and exclusive Denim interior color with cloth and leatherette combination front seats. This trim can be in place of or in addition to the SEL Premium package. Hyundai Venue.
