The upcoming 2021 Hyundai Venue is a small crossover that will go on sale by the end of 2020. Whatsoever, it is the smallest of Hyundai’s models in the SUV lineup. Venue will compete in the subcompact crossover segment. This model looks refreshed as it is a relatively new crossover. Because of that, we don’t expect any major changes to happen.
On the other hand, many reports are suggesting a couple of drastic upgrades. Moreover, Hyundai will add more optional amenities. As for the performances, the Venue will ride on an updated 1.6-liter engine. Its price should not increase and here’s everything you need to know about the approaching Venue model.
2021 Venue Exterior Changes and Colors
New subcompact crossover will mix modern and funky design. The 2021 Hyundai Venue is a small model and it looks adorable. Its shape and dimensions should largely remain. Moreover, the front fascia comes with a bolder approach and thinner LED headlights. The rear section is dominated by the square-shaped LED taillights and a nice-looking bumper. The side profile should remain but new optional wheels should become available.
We like the Venue’s list of available exterior paints. This crossover offers Scarlet Red, Green Apple, Denim, and Intense Blue colors. Of course, you can always opt for White, Black, Silver, or Gray paints. Denim is perhaps the most popular option among buyers. The reason is that this option comes with a two-tone blue-and-white paint job, combined with blue interior scheme.
On the inside, the new 2021 Hyundai Venue looks unique and fun. According to the latest photos, Venue will feature a cabin that looks closer to the interior of the new Hyundai Kona. Of course, Venue is a smaller model with two rows of seats and a room for five passengers. The headroom is surprisingly ample but the legroom isn’t that generous. Still, Venue offers 34 inches of rear legroom, which is enough for a subcompact crossover.
Hyundai offers a standard 8-inch touchscreen that supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Blue Link system is available and it comes with Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant integrations. As we said, the new Venue should offer more optional equipment. That mostly includes the latest driver-assistance aids. Thanks to that, safety will be improved additionally.
The approaching 2021 Hyundai Venue comes with only one engine. It is a 1.6-liter four-cylinder unit with 130 horsepower. This is more than enough power for this subcompact crossover. However, many fans would like to see an optional and more powerful engine. Hyundai offers a 6-speed manual transmission in the base SE trim level.
The SEL trim and all trim levels above that are using a continuously variable automatic transmission. The Venue model delivers 32 mpg combined, which is great. This crossover is focused on efficiency rather than performance. Lastly, Venue remains a front-wheel-drive model with the same driving modes such as Normal, Eco, and Sport.
2021 Hyundai Venue Price and Release Date
The all-new 2021 Hyundai Venue starts at $17,500. However, we’d recommend you to skip the base trim level and go for the SEL that costs $19,000. Hyundai will offer various optional packages that are also recommendable. Venue will go on sale later this year and it will rival models such as Nissan Kicks, Mazda CX-30, and Toyota C-HR.
