First look: 2020 Hyundai Venue

The Venue is Hyundai’s latest SUV to join the company’s growing crossover portfolio.

As the smallest crossover in the line-up, the city-size Venue will be the most affordable Hyundai SUV, and joins its larger siblings including the Kona, Tucson and Santa Fe.

The new Hyundai Venue will be built in South Korea and will arrive in Australian showrooms in the second half of this year. While not confirmed, the Venue is likely to replace the Accent in the light car market space, which is soon to reach the end of its life cycle.

The more sensibly-styled Venue will be offered as a smaller alternative to the Kona, with power coming from a dual-port fuel injected 1.6-litre petrol engine driving through either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission.

Standard across the range is a suite of safety features including Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Driver Attention Warning and Rear Collision Cross-Traffic Warning.

Inside, the Venue features an 8-inch infotainment touch screen display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support including app-based navigation, streaming audio and voice-controlled search capabilities.

Full pricing and specification of the new Hyundai Venue will be announced closer to local launch.
