The 2020 Hyundai Venue gives you the best of both worlds in its compact but impressive frame. It’s a trendy, unique offering with advanced safety mechanisms, seamless transition both on and off-road, and quite a bit of personality.
Here’s your introduction to the all-new 2020 Hyundai Venue, Hyundai’s smallest crossover SUV.
Revel in the Venue’s All-New Exterior Styling
Hyundai Venue features incorporate both personality and lifestyle factors.
The 2020 Hyundai Venue design caters to younger, city-dwelling consumers who like to roam around a lot. It has thin horizontal running lamps up front, matching the sizeable headlamps, providing a more exuberant look. It also has a big front grille with silver elements. Its exterior mirrors are that of a prototypical off-road offering.
You’ll find that it has a chrome finish outside the door handles, silver skid plates on both the front and rear, as well as sporty roof rails to carry your stuff. There's also a power sunroof that you can open as you drive in the summer heat.
Furthermore, the Venue is accentuated by 17” diamond-cut alloy wheels to give it a bit of edge and full wheel covers to add protection layers.
The Interior Design is Striking
The Hyundai 2020 Venue is small but spacious, considering its wheelbase is only 81 mm, with 76 litres in interior volume and 396 litres of cargo room. You can handle the car with ease and carry a good amount of stuff with you on every road trip.
You’ll also notice that it has a large floating touchscreen, with updated steering-mounted controls. You can also use a combination of toggle switches to operate various functions. On the left side of the screen, you’ll find the infotainment system, telephone and volume controls while the right side contains a multi-information display and cruise control. Its infotainment system comes equipped with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
To the right of the steering wheel column is the push button to start the 2020 Hyundai Venue as well as the headlight controls and traction control. Even the smaller details stand out with this crossover SUV as you’ll notice silver bezels on the AC vents as well as a grainy finish on the dashboard. You get heated seats and a heated steering wheel as well, which come in handy during the harsh Canadian winter.
It Has a Fully Capable Powertrain
Hyundai Venue specs on the powertrain include a 1.6 L, four-cylinder engine with dual port injection. You can use six-speed manual transmission or opt for Hyundai’s Smart Stream Intelligent Variable Transmission (TVT).
It has a front-wheel-drive configuration, with estimated optimal combined fuel consumption at 7.1 litres per 100 km.
You’ll Find Plenty of Safety Features
Like many other Hyundai models, the 2020 Hyundai Venue features SmartSense safety features that will keep you in control on the road at all times.
SmartSense collision-avoidance technology includes pedestrian detection that can alert you about an impending front collision. The brakes will automatically be applied if no action is taken following the alert. Also, you get blind-spot collision warning to detect vehicles in your blind spot and alert you if you’re too close to those vehicles.
You will also notice the High Beam Assist, which will sense oncoming traffic and dim your high beam immediately. Then, there’s smart cruise control, and you can set your desired speed and let the Venue do the rest. If traffic is detected in front, the car will slow down. If the road’s clear, it will speed up again.
Other notable safety features include safe exit assist and rear occupant alert to keep your passengers secure.
Comparing Hyundai Venue vs. Hyundai Kona
What is Hyundai’s Smallest SUV now? The Venue will replace the Kona as Hyundai’s smallest SUV, shorter by 130 mm. The Venue's overall length and width are smaller than the Kona, but it's slightly more elevated than the Kona. Its interior volume, passenger volume, and cargo capacity are also slightly smaller than the Kona, which boasts considerably more max cargo capacity.
