When you’re cruising in the 2021 Hyundai Venue, you’ve got comfy seating, a wealth of tech features, and impressive fuel mileage at your command. This subcompact crossover’s low starting price is also attractive. But don’t be fooled; the Venue comes standard with a healthy dose of modern comfort and convenience features.

Interior Features

The Venue’s cabin is surprisingly roomy, especially considering its city-friendly size. Hyundai has arranged the Venue’s seats in such a way that even 6-foot-tall passengers fit comfortably in either row. From the front seats, all important controls and infotainment options are within easy reach. And visibility is great all-around, adding to your on-road confidence.

Lane-keeping assist technology senses when you’re drifting dangerously outside of the lines and automatically corrects your steering.

Tech Features

We’re also big fans of the Venue’s infotainment lineup. This little crossover helps you avoid distraction with complete smartphone integration via Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. This technology projects your smartphone apps onto the 8-inch infotainment touch screen (also standard), so you don’t have to reach for your phone until you’re safely parked. The infotainment system also includes smartphone-friendly voice control access, so you can even send texts or switch playlists without ever lifting a finger.

The Venue’s tech upgrades are equally enticing. An extra charge-only USB port will charge an extra device. And the optional navigation system means you can always get directions, even when your smartphone connection is dwindling.

Standard tech features:

  • Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone integration
  • 8-inch touch-screen infotainment display
  • Four-speaker sound system
  • USB port

Optional tech features:

  • Keyless entry and push-button start
  • Navigation system
  • Additional USB port
  • Six-speaker audio system

Power and Performance

Every 2021 Venue runs on the same powertrain. Its four-cylinder engine and continuously variable transmission combine to deliver satisfying speed—enough for you to keep your cool as you merge into fast-moving traffic. For this segment, the Venue is especially quick to get going from a standing stop. And that’s great news for city drivers racing from stop light to stop light!

There’s more good news. Every Venue comes with three drive modes: Normal, Sport, and Snow. Normal helps you conserve fuel, while Sport kicks up extra dust with a speedier performance. When you’re forced to travel down snowy roads, Snow mode optimizes wheelspin and therefore safety.

  • 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (121 horsepower, 113 pound-feet of torque)
  • Continuously variable transmission
  • Optional Normal, Sport, and Snow drive modes

Fuel Economy

The Venue is quick around town, but it’s also very fuel efficient. Every trim model is EPA-rated to earn up to 31 mpg combined (30 city/33 highway mpg).
