The 2021 Hyundai Venue is smaller than the already diminutive Hyundai Kona but technically seats up to five passengers. This millennial-focused car is available for sale at around $17,350 for the base SE trim and goes up to $22,050 for the Denim trim. The SEL trim adds a 6-speaker sound system, Blind-Spot Sensor and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert to the list. The 2021 Venue is also known for its incredible MPG figures

The interior of the 2021 Venue packs an 8-inch touchscreen display that features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto only on the top-spec Denim trim. Under the hood of the 2021 Hyundai Venue sits a four-cylinder good for 121 horsepower. Hyundai pairs the engine to a CVT while the manual transmission gets discontinued for this year. The close competitors of the 2021 Venue are the Honda HR-V, the Ford EcoSport, and the Nissan Kicks.

2021 Hyundai Venue Pricing and Features

Hyundai offers the 2021 Venue in three trims: SE, SEL, and Denim. All models come with a 121-horsepower 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine and front-wheel drive. A continuously variable transmission is standard on all the trims. The prices of the 2021 Hyundai Venue will start at $17,350 for the base SE trim and will go all the way up to $22,050 for the top-of-the-line Denim trim. 

The Denim trim of the Hyundai Venue adds some hot oomph to the equation. 

The Premium Package ($2,350) upgrades the SEL trim automatic climate control, LED DRLs, a four-speaker sound system, and 17-inch alloy wheels. The Denim trim adds a dual-tone paint scheme, Denim color with a white roof, and few white inserts on the overall exteriors. It also includes a navigation system, bigger 17” alloy wheels, and a very sweet-looking denim-colored interior.

2021 Hyundai Venue Buying Advice

The top-of-the-line Denim trim gets all the bells and whistles. It has better-looking exterior and interior themes. The 2021 Hyundai Venue Denim goes for sale for $22,050. It is a great deal plus you get the comfort of an SUV for that easy ingress and egress.

2021 Hyundai Venue Engine and Performance

8.0/10

"Even though the Venue’s 1.6-liter engine puts out only 121 horsepower, Hyundai’s smallest crossover feels reasonably peppy". - Kelly Blue Book

The 2021 Hyundai Venue gets the same 1.6L naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine. This engine churns out 121 hp and 112 lb-ft. Though these numbers feel adequate for a city commute, once you hit the highway, the lack of power is pretty evident in the way this crossover hustles ahead.

2021 Hyundai Venue SUV gets a standard 1.6L Engine

The CVT, as expected, is very slow, and you can feel the shifts happening. The 2021 Venue's four-banger never exactly feels weak, but it doesn't move the vehicle with much authority either. Acceleration is good enough in most cases, but it takes time to gallop from a stop.

The 2021 Hyundai Venue SUV covers 0-60 MPH in 9.8 sec

The 2021 Hyundai Venue can accelerate from 0-60 mph in 9.8 seconds. The quarter-mile mark is achieved in 16.8 seconds. The Venue comes to a halt in just 116ft from 60mph.  With the SEL trim, you even get disc brakes at the rear, which can provide more stopping power.

The Hyundai Venue and the Nissan Kicks stand at the top in terms of mileage followed by the Honda HR-V. The 2021 Ford Ecosport's mileage totally contradicts its performance, being the slowest in the segment. The EcoSport further worsens its case with the poorest mpg figures on offer.

"This Hyundai comes with one of the most user-friendly infotainment systems in the subcompact SUV class". - Cars.USNews

The 2021 Hyundai Venue can accommodate up to five occupants. Hyundai does a great job providing decent space for all the passengers. It offers 39.4 inches of headroom and 41.3 inches of legroom up front and the driver has an excellent view of the road ahead.

The Hyundai Venue despite its compact size, provides sufficient space inside the cabin.

A tilt and telescopic steering column and a manually-adjustable driver's seat help the driver to gain a comfortable driving position. Unfortunately, no lumbar support is available in the 2021 Venue, the front seats offer good levels of cushioning and comfort.

2021 Hyundai Venue Exterior

9.0/10

"The Venue has the tall-hatchback thing down pat. It’s clearly not an SUV, but it’s not a slippery, sporty hot hatch, either".- The Car Connection

There are no exterior or cosmetic changes for the American version of the 2021 Hyundai Venue. The Venue does look appealing in its Denim variant with white inserts on the exteriors, the slanting taillights, and the new headlight position with Indicators.

The Hyundai Venue has a particular youth appeal attested to it.

The 2021 Hyundai Venue is modern and provides iconic design language. The 2020 Venue's exterior goes against the conventional design language of cars as the primary headlight comes integrated with the fog lamps. The sleek lamps that appear to be the primary headlights just serve the purpose of a DRL.

Pros - Smooth ride, features equipped and good steering

Venue- beat for city commuters

Pros - "spacious cabin, agile handling, standard driver's assistance tech"

Cons - Only FWD with CVT available

venue misses the automatic transmission and awd The venue is spacious in both the rows and the cargo as well. It handles vey well in the city traffic. On highways it struggles to gain more speed. Cvt transmission although happens to be more efficient and comfortable especially in city however doesn't feel encouraging on the highways. I also feel awd should have been an option in it Altogether, the pricing and options on it were just perfect for me. However driving it for three months now and I've started to question my decision of getting a venue for city and highway commutes.

Pros - "good mileage, roomy interiors, complimentary maitenance for 3 years"

Cons - Highway aceleration is prety bad

Compact and boxy I chose this trim as it has standard safty features, leather seats and built in navigation with real time traffic monitoring and an impressive mileage of 30 mpg in the city. the handling is agile in the city but on highways, the acceleration and handling both change manners. Time and pricing could have been better. Ray is amazing to work with however the overall amount of time taken in the process isn't acceptable
