About Hyundai Venue
The all-new Hyundai Venue SUV is one of the smallest, most affordable SUVs in the market. Standing at just 158.9 inches long with a 99.2-inch wheelbase, Venue is just about half a foot longer than a 2020 Mini Cooper. This is a very small car as compared to other SUVs.
Under the Venue’s hood is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder, which will bolt up to either a six-speed manual on the SE model or a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) on the SEL. Front-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive is not an option. The four-cylinder motor makes an estimated 121 h.p. and 113 lb-ft of torque. Noise, vibration and harshness are surprisingly well controlled throughout. The engineers have applied acoustic countermeasures almost everywhere, including sound-deadening materials in the usual dashboard and door locations. There’s plenty of head, elbow and legroom. All Venues receive a unusually large 8-inch touchscreen audio system. Navigation, Bluelink telematics and Sirius XM satellite radio is optional. A four-speaker audio system is standard, and a six-speaker setup is available. These are the features that helped this machine take the top spot.
