The Venue is Hyundai’s latest crossover and undercuts already compact crossovers like the Kona in size. When it arrives here as a 2020 model later this year, it will be pitched as a stylish urban vehicle powered by a 1.6-liter inline-four-cylinder engine producing 130 horsepower. Either a continuously variable transmission (CVT) or six-speed manual gearbox can be specified, and the Venue will be front-wheel-drive only.
The Venue will come equipped with some advanced safety features like lane keep assist and forward collision warning and while both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard, the Venue will also be able to be linked to Amazon Alexa and Google Home Devices. Several funky exterior colors and interior trim options will further help differentiate the Venue in this crowded segment. Pricing is set to range between $18,000 and $24,000.
