The Hyundai Venue arrived in 2020, giving the brand a new subcompact crossover to compete in this growing segment. With it entering just its third year on showroom floors, we expect the 2022 Hyundai Venue to be a carryover model.
When the Hyundai Venue hit showrooms, it arrived with a compact footprint, a long and flat hood, an upright glasshouse, slitlike LED headlights, and sharp body lines. This gave the Venue a relatively rugged look to contrast its otherwise soft segment. We expect the carryover 2022 Hyundai Venue to continue with the same design.
Inside, the Venue relaxes a bit with its relatively simple cabin that includes a shapely dash, large HVAC knobs, several gloss-black accents, and a standard 8-inch touchscreen. With it being a carryover model, we expect the 2022 Venue’s interior to remain the same.
On top of its 8-inch touchscreen, we expect all the Venue’s standard features to carry over unchanged into the 2022 model. These include 15-inch wheels, power features, Bluetooth, cruise control, cloth upholstery, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Powering the current Venue is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine with 121 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque mated to a continuously variable transmission. Power heads exclusively to the front wheels. We expect this powertrain to remain the same in the 2022 Hyundai Venue.
The current Venue comes standard with automatic emergency braking, active lane control, and automatic high-beam headlights. Buyers can move up to the SEL trim and get standard blind-spot monitors. The current Venue is an IIHS Top Safety Pick thanks to "Good" ratings in all crash-safety tests and "Marginal"-rated standard headlights and "Acceptable"-rated optional LED projector headlights. We expect these safety features and ratings to remain the same in the 2022 Venue.
