The automotive media gives the 2021 Hyundai Venue outstanding reviews. The experts at Autotrader write: “The Venue was introduced just last year and is meant to appeal to city-centric buyers who want an SUV that fits anywhere, comes with the latest tech and safety features, is easy to own and operate, and even has a sense of style. Hyundai has delivered that in the Venue, all at a price below $20,000.”
The base Venue SE includes 15-inch alloy wheels, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat, a cloth interior, cruise control, an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, an audio system with four speakers, HD radio, lane-keeping assist, driver drowsiness monitoring, forward-collision alert with automatic emergency braking, and a rearview camera. Options include push-button start, heated front seats, a sunroof, navigation and satellite radio.
Step up to the SEL trim, and you’ll get 17-inch wheels, a chrome front grille, drive mode select, a power sunroof, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a sliding armrest, automatic climate control, rear cross-traffic alert, blind-spot monitoring, roof side rails, a six-speaker audio system, voice control and dual USB charge ports.
The range-topping Denim trim gets an exclusive blue exterior color with a white contrast roof. Standard features include simulated leather upholstery, LED headlights, heated front seats, keyless entry with push-button start, heated outside mirrors and navigation.
The 2021 Hyundai Venue hasn’t been crash-tested by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety as of this writing. However, last year’s model was named a Top Safety Pick, with the highest score of Good in all crash tests. We expect identical results for the 2021 Venue.
