Venue conveys a fun, yet functional design in a versatile and modern compact package. For those constantly on-the-go, Venue offers ease of adaptability to the fast-paced urban entrepreneur lifestyle many consumers seek. From everyday workplace activities to weekend fun, Venue is a great fit in accommodating busy lifestyles with an abundance of fun and practical features, including seamless safety, versatility and connectivity.

'The Venue is a feature-filled, comfortable and convenient vehicle in a small but practical package,' said Mike O'Brien, vice president Product, Corporate and Digital Planning, Hyundai Motor America. 'For consumers seeking modern, forward-thinking and iconic design, connectivity, maneuverability and protection in various driving environments, Venue fits the bill perfectly.'

The stylish Venue includes improved powertrain efficiencies, premium comfort and convenience and numerous standard safety features.


The design of the new Venue exhibits compact but confident body forms, delivering a new interpretation of Hyundai's signature design language. The side profile showcases full-volume wheel arches and strong character lines, while the cascading grille incorporates Hyundai's signature forward-looking visage found on both Kona and NEXO SUVs. The unique front lamp layout separates the turn lamps and headlamps and features optional premium LED headlights with LED daylight running lights. The unique Venue body character line carries through the profile to the tail lamps. A power sunroof is also an option. Venue is available with striking 17-inch or 15-inch alloy wheels along with standard 15-inch steel wheels. Its impressive aerodynamics visualized by the rear spoiler and rear fascia asymmetric block help improve efficiency while maintaining its unique sense of style.


Venue's inviting interior offers intuitive controls and forward-thinking design. Available convenience features such as Dual USBs, a 3.5-inch TFT instrument cluster display to illustrate useful information, a rearview camera with dynamic guidelines, Bluetooth® hands-free capability and automatic temperature controls are all offered. The leather-wrapped steering wheel provides daily comfort for the driver and added convenience, with audio controls and cruise control easily accessible.

Additional available interior convenience features include a proximity key with push-button start, heated front seats and side view mirrors.

Venue's appealing interior space and comfortable cabin provide adequate roominess for the versatile urban commuter. Venue comes standard with a 60/40 split, flat-folding rear seatback to maximize utility for various trips, like the local farmer's market or transporting musical instruments. Venue's SUV styling cues and utility make it an ideal alternative to many subcompact cars. The cargo space features a rear cargo cover for added privacy that can be conveniently stowed when not in use. The dual-level cargo floor feature provides flexibility to have the floor of the cargo area in either the top position-level with the seats when folded down, or at a lower position to accommodate more cargo.


Venue includes an abundant list of standard safety features including: six airbags – front (2), side-impact (2) and side air curtain (2), seatbelt pre-tensioner with force limiters, Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) with Traction Control System (TCS). VSM helps maintain the steering control of the vehicle during an emergency braking situation or under adverse driving conditions. The feature also includes Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) which balances braking forces at each wheel when the car is dynamically loaded and Brake Assist, enabling the driver to provide maximum ABS-level braking force when an emergency stop is detected.

Venue also offers a suite of advanced safety technologies (ADAS) for a strong sense of protection in an entry-level vehicle.

    • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) uses the car's front-facing camera to help detect an imminent collision and avoid impact or minimize damage by braking autonomously in case no driver intervention is detected after a system warning
    • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) helps prevent accidental lane departure by sensing road markings and may automatically steer the car if necessary
    • Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) helps detect approaching vehicles that may be obscured from view during highway driving (optional)
    • Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system monitors a spectrum of driver-related characteristics to help detect driver fatigue or careless driving
    • Rear Collision Cross-Traffic Warning (RCCW) helps detect when a vehicle may have entered a car's rearward path providing a driver alert (optional)
    • Drive Modes includes a Snow mode for improved forward mobility (optional)

Each of these advanced systems provides a confident driving experience during various urban adventures.
