The Korean automaker will purportedly position the Venue as an ultra-incentive went for charming used-vehicle purchasers.
The Venue will be estimated so low that it will be “going up against used vehicles as a rule,” Michael O’Brien, VP for the item, corporate, and computerized arranging at Hyundai Motor America, said in a meeting with Automotive News. He said around 33% of the 40 million used-vehicle exchanges in 2018 started with a purchaser searching for another vehicle however not finding what they needed.
Bringing down the value point to achieve that objective market was behind Hyundai’s choice to renounce all-wheel drive and make the Venue front-wheel drive just, O’Brien said.

All-wheel drive is commonly viewed as an essential for a hybrid, however, not all vehicles have it. The Nissan Kicks and Toyota C-HR — which, similar to the Venue, are situated as section level models — are front-wheel drive as it were. Nissan and Toyota have wagered that particular outside styling and somewhat taller driving positions will be sufficient to recognize these vehicles from ordinary hatchbacks.
Hyundai hasn’t unveiled estimating for the Venue, however, O’Brien revealed to Automotive News that it will start underneath the Hyundai Kona. With a base cost of $21,035, the Kona is right now the least expensive hybrid in Hyundai’s lineup. O’Brien likewise revealed to Automotive News that the Venue will start “at somewhat of a premium, however very little,” over the passage level Hyundai Accent car, which has a base cost $15,915.
The Venue is Hyundai’s seventh hybrid and its littlest. It’s around five inches shorter than the Kona, however, Hyundai still promises open to seating for four grown-ups and a good measure of load space. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard, with Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa combination accessible also. The solely accessible motor will be a 1.6-liter, four-chamber unit, coupled to a six-speed manual or ceaselessly factor transmission (CVT). The Venue hits showrooms in the not so distant future
