Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Hyundai Venue is a subcompact crossover with big ideas.

Pros
Spunky looks
Flexible cargo space
Hatchback practicality
8.0-inch touchscreen
Automatic emergency braking is standard

Cons
Is it too small?
That grille, though
Wild colors
Stretching the definition of a crossover

The Hyundai Venue will be the Korean automaker's newest and smallest crossover when it goes on sale for the 2020 model year. The tiny ute will slot below the already subcompact Hyundai Kona. We expect the 2020 Hyundai Venue to be in dealerships before the end of 2019.
The Venue will have few direct competitors—namely the Ford EcoSport and the Nissan Kicks. We expect the pint-sized Hyundai to have an equally diminutive stature. An 8.0-inch infotainment system will offer Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capability as well as streaming audio and voice-controlled search functionality. Navigation with real-time traffic updates will be optional.

9-speed automatic could aid fuel economy, engine response

Cons
Turbo is AWD-only
Price climbs fast

Doesn’t do much to stand out
