2020 Hyundai Venue: Preview, Pricing, Release Date

, Automotive Editor - April 19, 2019

Model Preview

Hyundai has been hard at work fleshing out its crossover and SUV lineups. At the 2019 New York Auto Show it released the all-new 2020 Hyundai Venue, growing its crossover and SUV offerings to seven.

The 2020 Hyundai Venue will be 5.1 inches shorter than the existing Kona, making it the brand’s entry-level crossover. Besides being tiny, the 2020 Venue will also offer a fresh take on the segment with an extroverted design that combines an upright stance with modern touches like composite LED headlights, cube-shaped fog lights, and striking taillights.

The modern styling doesn’t let up inside the 2020 Venue’s cabin with its three-spoke steering wheel that features bold horizontal posts and a thinner lower post. This gives the illusion of a futuristic two-spoke steering wheel many concept vehicles use. The cabin will also feature an 8-inch color touchscreen nestled between two air vents, a horizontal storage cubby in the passenger side of the dash, and much more.

The front seats will be plenty roomy with 41.3 inches of leg room and 39.4 inches of headroom, but the rear seats will get a little tight with 34.3 inches of leg room. Cargo room will be respectable for its class at 18.7 cubic feet with the rear seats upright and 31.9 cubes with the seats folded.

The 2020 Hyundai Venue will also come packed with standard features and options. On the standard list will be the aforementioned 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and more. Available features like dual USB ports, heated front seats, remote start, and navigation help dress it up for the more tech-focused buyer.

Powering the 2020 Hyundai Venue will be a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that will deliver an estimated 121 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque. This engine will pair with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional continuously variable transmission, which will ship power to the front wheels. There will be no all-wheel-drive option. Hyundai expects a 33 mpg combined rating once EPA testing is complete.

Official safety results are not available yet, but the 2020 Hyundai Venue will come standard with loads of safety gear, including automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keep assist, and driver-attention warning. Buyers will be able to opt for blind-spot monitors and rear cross-traffic alert in the SEL trim.

Pricing & Release Date

There is no concrete release date for the 2020 Hyundai Venue, but the automaker expects to have it in showrooms in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Pricing remains unknown, but we expect it to ring in under the 2019 Kona, which ranges from $21,035 to $32,995 (destination fees included).

The 2020 Hyundai Venue will battle the Jeep Renegade, Toyota C-HR, and Honda HR-V.
