2022 Hyundai Venue review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2022 Hyundai Venue?

The five-seat Hyundai Venue subcompact SUV is powered by a 121-horsepower, 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that works with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The Venue is available only with front-wheel drive. Nimble and easy to park thanks to its small size, the Venue personifies the “cute-ute” class that also includes models like the Nissan Kicks and Toyota C-HR. You can see how the Venue scored in our Car Seat Check here.

Should I Buy the 2022 Hyundai Venue? 

The Hyundai Venue is a good match for suburban or city-based drivers who want the look of an SUV but the size and fuel-sipping demeanor of a small hatchback. Its lack of all-wheel drive limits the Venue’s appeal, but it does include a lot of safety and tech features for the money. Value is also an important part of the equation, which is why the Venue won our Best Value of 2021 award.

Great Value Vehicle

I purchased this car in the spring of 2022 for my teenager driver. This is a fantastic car for a young driver. It won't win any street races (nor do I want it to for a teen), gets fantastic mileage, is nimble (particularly nice for them parking at school) and is packed with features that you find on more expensive cars (such as wireless Apple Car Play0---which my wife's 2022 Audi Q3 doesn't even have). Add the long term warrant coverage and this is a very good buy. At just over $21k, I am very pleased with this car almost a year after buying it.

Good value, good looking, good parking

I have the 2021 Venue Denim which is now called the Limited. I purchased the car mainly because I liked the exterior styling and I wanted something with a little more ground clearance than the Honda Fit that I had before this car. I live in the Northeastern US and we do get some snow. AWD is not available in this car, but the high ground clearance with the "Snow Mode" option makes the car pretty good in snow as long as it's not very deep. The value of the car is extremely good if you compare it to what you get from other car makers. I also like the maneuverability of the car and the ease of parking due to the overall short length.

4.0

Love the car but needs a few additions.

Just need better audio. Radio reception terrible. Not given instruction on what to do. Not compatible with Sirius which is very disappointing. Need to be shown other options.
