New 2020 Hyundai Venue Entry-Level Crossover Unveiled

Unveiled at the New York Auto Show, the new Hyundai Venue is Hyundai’s new entry-level crossover.

That means that the new 2020 Hyundai Venue is smaller than a Hyundai Kona which wasn’t all that big to begin with. That said, the new Venue unveiled at the 2019 New York Auto Show has plenty of other fine qualities.

The 2020 Venue will be powered by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that can be paired to either a six-speed manual gearbox or a CVT automatic. Hyundai didn’t announce any power specs, but the Korean automaker did say it will average about 33 mpg which is equivalent to about 7.12 liters per 100 kilometers.

The Venue will be a direct competitor to the Nissan Kicks and like the Kicks the Venue will only be available in front-wheel drive configuration. Hyundai says there will be “snow” mode for the FWD Venue.

The idea is that in doing so, the Venue won’t encroach on the Kona in terms of pricing. We’re thinking the 2020 Venue will start somewhere around $18,000 but nothing has been confirmed yet.

Available features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, heated front seats, blind spot monitoring, driver attention warning, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, lane keeping assist, bluetooth, and an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation.

2020 Hyundai Venue Dimensions Compared With Hyundai Kona

As mentioned, the 2020 Hyundai Venue is smaller than the Kona. How much smaller? It measures 158.9 inches in length compared to 164.0, it’s a little over an inch slimmer, and it’s wheelbase is a little over 3.0 inches shorter. It’s a bit higher, however.

Inside, the Venue has 91.9 cu. ft. of passenger volume (2,602 liters) compared with 94.1 cu.ft. (2,665 liters) for the Kona. With all seats in place the Venue can hold 18.7 cu.ft. (529 liters) while the Kona has 19.2 cu.ft. which translates to 543 liters.

The 2019 Hyundai Venue will arrive on the market at the end of 2019.
