2022 Hyundai Venue

Pros: Well equipped for the price; good interior room for its size; nimble handling around town

Cons: Ride can be a bit clunky; lack of merging and passing power; engine noise when accelerating; all-wheel drive not offered

CG Says: For 2022, the Hyundai Venue sees only minor trim and equipment changes. Hyundai introduced this subcompact crossover SUV for 2020. The Venue is the smallest, least expensive model in Hyundai’s SUV lineup; it’s 5.1 inches shorter overall than the Hyundai Kona subcompact crossover. Some might consider the Venue a tall hatchback rather than an SUV, especially since it’s front-drive only—AWD isn’t available. However, Hyundai is marketing the Venue as a subcompact crossover, and we’ll go along with that. The sole engine is a 121-horsepower 1.6-liter 4-cylinder paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT). Standard on all models are forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-keep assist, and driver-attention monitor. Apple CarPlay/Android Auto functionality is standard. Though it doesn’t completely transcend the limitations of an extra-small, entry-level vehicle—especially in terms of ride quality and engine noise—the 2022 Hyundai Venue is nonetheless a remarkable value that offers good passenger and cargo room within its extra-small dimensions, balanced handling, a nicely finished interior, and an impressive list of available safety and technology features, all at very competitive prices.
