Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2021 Manual transmission discontinued.Other minor changes to standard and optional feature availability.

Pros
Impressive number of features for your money
For its size, easy to get in and out of
Simple control layout

Cons
Engine sounds and feels a little coarse at higher speeds
All-wheel drive isn't offered
One of the smaller extra-small SUVs in the class

After only one year, Hyundai discontinues the standard manual transmission. All models now have a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). The Venue also drops the standard steel wheels, with the base model now riding on a set of alloy rims. The Convenience package, which was previously optional on the SEL, now becomes standard on that trim level. It includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a sliding armrest.

PROS
Excellent value,
surprising passenger space,
many standard driver assists.

CONS
Apathetic highway acceleration,
busy highway behavior,
missing some desirable options.

Pros
Easy to maneuver in tight spaces
Good gas mileage
Easy-to-use infotainment technology

Cons
Small cargo capacity
Engine feels lethargic at times

Former T8 plug-in hybrid is now called Recharge.Adaptive headlights, hands-free liftgate and rear USB-C ports added as standard.

Pros
Elegant interior design
Spacious second-row seating
Many standard safety tech features
Available as a plug-in hybrid

Cons
Not as fun to drive as most competitors
Too many controls tied to frustrating touchscreen interface
Ride is a little busier than you might expect from a luxury crossover

The XC60 receives several new standard features for 2021, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, LED headlights, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and front parking sensors, as well as a new 19-inch wheel design and power-folding exterior mirrors with an auto-dimming function. Volvo has eliminated AM radio on the XC60, but fans of the format will still be able to listen via a provided app, TuneIn, through the infotainment system.

Pros
Handsomely designed inside and out,
good fuel economy from all three powertrains,
plenty of standard safety tech.

Cons
Infotainment system response lags at startup,
hybrid powertrain needs refinement,
dinky interior storage bins.

Gorgeous interior
Competent powertrains

Cons
Can get pricey quickly

Requires premium fuel
It’s not in our driveway now
