What's New

As a carryover model, the only changes to Hyundai’s baby SUV for 2022 are trim-related. The Denim trim has been renamed Limited, a power sunroof comes as standard on SEL and the Premium Package it was previously bundled in with has been discontinued. An immobilizer is now standard on SE and SEL models, too.

Choosing Your Hyundai Venue

The 2022 Venue range is easy to navigate, with three trims but only one engine, transmission and drive configuration. The range starts at $20,125 including destination for the SE model, rising to $21,875 for SEL and $23,375 for flagship Limited models.

Engine Choices

The Venue is powered by Hyundai’s 1.6-liter four-cylinder DPI gas engine, generating 121 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque. This is supplied to the front wheels through an intelligent variable transmission, returning an EPA-estimated 29 miles per gallon city, 33 MPG highway, and 31 combined.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

Cargo capacity for the five-seater Venue stands at 18.7 cu ft with the rear seats in place, and 31.9 cu ft once they’re dropped.

Safety Features

Even base Venue models receive cruise control, traction control and a vehicle stability management system, automatic lights, and six airbags. Other across-the-range driver aids include high beam assist, forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and an attention warning system.

SEL models benefit from rear disc brakes with rear cross-traffic alert and blind-spot collision warnings, while selectable drive modes include a dedicated snow mode. Limited models sport LED headlights and forward collision avoidance incorporating pedestrian and cyclist detection.


You wouldn’t expect high-end infotainment on a budget SUV, but the Venue does provide an eight-inch interface for its HD radio system, allied to smartphone integration and four speakers.

There are USB and 12V outlets, plus Bluetooth and steering wheel audio controls, while SEL models up the ante with dual USB data/charging sockets and two more speakers. Limited is alone in receiving navigation, satellite radio, and Blue Link connected car technology.

Venue SE – MSRP From $20,125

Riding on modest 15-inch alloy wheels, SE models deliver the basics buyers of a budget SUV might expect. There’s cruise control, air conditioning, remote keyless entry, and power windows all around. The trunk contains a two-stage floor with hooks, safety extends to forward collision avoidance, and a driver attention warning system, and the lights are automatic.

There are no packs available on Venue models.

Venue SEL – MSRP From $21,875

SEL stands out with larger 17-inch alloy wheels preceding rear disc brakes, while roof rails and a power sunroof are other notable external flourishes. Inside, you’ll find climate, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, additional storage compartments, and a more powerful stereo with extra USB sockets.

Venue Limited – MSRP From $23,375

Limited models lose the sunroof from SEL, replacing it with an overhead console map lamp. The front seats and outside mirrors gain heating elements, navigation is fitted alongside satellite radio, and there’s keyless entry with push-button start.

CarsDirect Tip

It’s worth raiding the piggy bank to fund an SEL model, which feels less basic than SE while also providing greater safety.

Great bang for your buck. There aren’t many affordable cars on the market these days, but the 2022 Hyundai Venue continues to be one of the more budget-friendly vehicles on sale. The base SE trim starts at $20,125 (including destination), which makes the Venue one of the more affordable vehicles on sale.

Despite the Venue’s low price tag, the subcompact SUV comes well equipped with an eight-inch touchscreen, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, four audio speakers, a USB port, Bluetooth, and an HD radio. Seeing standard wireless smartphone compatibility on a vehicle in this segment is rare and gives the Venue a leg up on the competition.

We think the mid-level SEL that costs an extra $1,750 is a much better choice for the majority of shoppers. With things like a sunroof, automatic climate control, six audio speakers, 17-inch alloys, rear disc brakes, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel, the SEL adds niceties that make the Venue feel a lot nicer for daily use.

Further helping the Venue feel like a great value option, Hyundai backs the SUV with an extensive warranty. Hyundai offers the Venue with a five-year/60,000-mile limited warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. These are some of the longest warranties offered on any vehicle.

Impressive safety. A lot of the Venue’s competitors in the subcompact class don’t have the same long list of standard features as Hyundai’s option. On the Venue, only blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert are optional. Forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, and a driver attention monitor are all standard.

In crash testing, the Venue fared well. The 2022 model earned a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA. While the IIHS hasn’t crash-tested the 2022 model year yet, the 2021 Venue earned a Top Safety Pick award. Without any major changes, we expect the 2022 Venue to earn the same safety rating from the IIHS.

Hyundai Venue

Cozy, not spacious. Measuring 159.1 inches long, the Venue is one of the smaller subcompact SUVs in the class. Passengers in the Venue are sure to feel cramped, though the SUV offers a generous amount of headroom because of its unique design. While the driver and front passenger won’t complain about much on a long drive, those in the back might feel confined on road trips. Rear passengers get 34.3 inches of legroom and 38.6 inches of headroom.

Cargo capacity for the Venue paints a similar story. The subcompact SUV has 18.7 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and a total of 31.9 cubic feet of cargo space. These figures aren’t special for the segment, but it’s enough to haul bulky items.

For the Venue’s price tag, the subcompact SUV comes with well-cushioned seats. Material quality is nice for the segment, making the subcompact SUV a nice place to spend time.

Performance is lacking. Not every vehicle has to have impressive performance, but the Venue will leave you wanting more, even if fuel economy is a priority. Additionally, the subcompact SUV doesn’t feel up to the task of tackling long highway treks regularly. It’s more suited to being an urban machine, which is something that it does well.

Power for the Venue comes from a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that produces 121 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque. The engine is paired with a CVT that further hinders the engine. The subcompact SUV accelerates at a leisurely pace, while the CVT struggles to find the right spot for the engine to be in under hard acceleration. Around town, the powertrain works fine. Front-wheel drive is the only drivetrain available, which is a negative for consumers looking for all-wheel drive.

The EPA rates the 2022 Venue to get up to 31 mpg combined. That’s a great figure for the class and only lags behind class leaders.

Final thoughts. The 2022 Hyundai Venue has a lot going for it. The subcompact SUV’s affordable price tag is one of its main upsides, while it also offers great fuel economy figures, an impressive list of features, and an excellent warranty. While not the prettiest car in the segment, the Venue has a design that’s hard to miss.

Alternatively, the Chevrolet Trailblazer is a stylish subcompact with up to 54.4 cubic feet of cargo space, roomy seats, and an easy-to-use infotainment system. The Subaru Crosstrek is one of the few subcompact SUVs to come with AWD as standard. Subaru’s option also has a spacious cabin, a smooth ride, and a 152-horsepower engine.
