The 2020 Hyundai Venue is an all-new vehicle for the model year, but hasn’t wasted any time to earn the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) Top Safety Pick award. While the Venue didn’t earn the IIHS’ highest award, earning a Top Safety Pick award is still really good for an all-new vehicle.

The Venue scored a rating of “Good” in all six of the institute’s crash tests and had a front-crash prevention system that earned a rating of “Superior.” Where the subcompact SUV missed out on the Top Safety Pick+ rating is with its headlights. Both of the Venue’s available headlights failed to earn a rating of at least “Good.” The standard halogen headlights earned a rating of “Marginal,” while the available LED headlights were found to be “Acceptable.” To earn the Top Safety Pick+ award, a vehicle must have “Acceptable” or “Good” rated headlights as standard.

With a Top Safety Pick award, the Venue joins the Hyundai Kona, Mazda CX-30, Subaru Crosstrek, Kia Soul, and Volvo XC40 as subcompact vehicles that have all won the award. The Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid and Mazda CX-3 are the only competitors that have earned a Top Safety Pick+ rating from the IIHS.

In total, Hyundai has 10 vehicles that have won an award from the IIHS, making it one of the few automakers with double-digit winners. Nine vehicles have been named a Top Safety Pick, while one, the Hyundai Nexo, was named a Top Safety Pick+. The Hyundai Elantra, Elantra GT, Veloster, Sonata, Kona, Tucson, Venue, Palisade, and Santa Fe are all Top Safety Pick vehicles.
