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.

Pros
Striking exterior design
Lots of standard kit and space
Very low PCP monthly payments
Plenty of personalisation
Good to drive

Cons
Plain interior design
Ride just okay on rough roads

The five-door All-New Arona, a front-wheel-drive only SUV, is well placed in this highly popular sector of the car market.It’s available with a choice of six engines, with both the diesel and petrol variants offered in either 95PS or 115 PS form, and the sporty FR 1.5 TSI EVO leaping up to 150 PS.

Pros
Very smart looking inside and out
Good choice of engines
Well equipped and overall good value

Cons
No SatNav on basic model

By: 
drive.co.uk

The Seat Arona is quite possibly the best compact SUV of the moment. Good practicality, economy and solid driving manners are all Arona staples.It lacks the visual creativity of a Hyundai Kona or the customisation of a Citroen C3 Aircross, but its real-world strengths far outweigh having orange door mirrors. It’s a level-headed car for level-headed people.

Pros
Refined 1.0-litre petrol
Ergonomic infotainment system
Good ride

Cons
Humdrum looks
Narrow middle seat
Trim levels that dictate engine choice
