This little care is awesome. It’s a nice crossover, plenty of room inside. The engine does respond, especially in sport mode. The Apple Airplay and Android Auto touchscreen radio is very user friendly. Speakers are great. I bought the SEL model, and it’s well worth the upgrade.

I wasnt sold after my test drive but I am so glad I got this car. The gas mileage is AMAZING, it handles well in all weather...even icy conditions. The truck and backseat are a little small, but that's only because I have a car seat and stroller to go everywhere with me. Little touches make the car feel like a luxury vehicle: sunroof, leather steering wheel and a user friendly touchscreen display. I am super happy with my choice.

For those in snow areas. Drive in rural wintery conditions and it does the trick. Heated steering wheel seats mirrors, good road clearance even at front. Front wheel drive is all you need. Winter tires. Excellent in snow. Fun in summer. Peppy roomy fun to drive frugal. Hoping this engine is better than the troubled Elantra engines etc. Strong wind does blow you around. Cvt is nice but I could not get a manual. Problem. At 11000km Ac quit lol. Over 1 month not repaired yet.

Very disappointing

4th Hyundai I've owned. Bought it new; complained of a squeak when going in reverse since it was new to two different dealerships. "Must be dust on new brake pads..." I was told. Under 15,000 miles, the transmission went out. Took them a month to fix it and still trying to get money back for the car rental, the story keeps changing on who I should talk to. Now the horn never works and the dome light works occasionally, even though the dealer checked off the horn works just fine the last oil change. Driver assist and acceleration in cruise control are abrupt and jerky. It does get over 38 mpg in summer, so it's got that going for it.

Better than I expected.

The Venue was not my first pick for a new car but since the Ford Maverick I wanted would not be available till 2024 I purchased my second choice. we wanted to order a 2022 Venue but again there would be to long of a wait and the price would be much higher. We settled for a slightly used 2021 that was actually better than what we would have ordered! Also since it is a SEL there are the usual upgrades. One that is only available on the newer SEL's is the sunroof which ours lacks which in our case was good as we did not want one. This is our first Korean auto and we are very impressed with the build quality and how solid it feels. There are no rattles , squeaks or shakes present anywhere. Even though it is an economy configured car it does not feel like one. The interior is actually quieter that you would expect and the engine and road noise ( what little there actually is ) is not that harsh at all. Performance wise it is what you would expect however acceleration is very good as I have no trouble getting up to highway speeds and that includes going up onramps. I proved this in the Detroit area where driving can sometimes be quite interesting. The ride is actually very good considering the short wheel base and the lower profile 17 inch wheels but it is not objectionable. It is still better than my 2010 Transit Connect and my former 2008 Focus. If you want a slightly better ride the smaller 15 inch wheels on the SE might be a bit better. The infotainment center and dash displays are very easy to use and take very little time to get used to. This was good for me as this is my first car with all the bells and whistles. I like the fact that you can turn some of the more annoying warning signals off if you want and they stay off untill you turn them back on. The interior is laid out petty good with good room and spaces to store items. The rear seat folds down completely flat without having to remove the headrest's like on my Transit. In the rear there is also some very good extra storage in the spare tire well which is great for storing extra winter driving items. The gas mileage is also much better than what is stated on the window sticker as I am currently averaging 38.7 miles per gallon in mixed driving which is far above the 33 mpg stated. The CVT transmission is very smooth and gives you very good acceleration at all speeds even with only 121 hp. The only modern item I had to get used to was the electric assist on the steering. Since almost all cars have this now you have to get used to it. It is a bit vague to me as I am used to having some kind of road feel as feedback while driving but is is growing on me. I have not had to do any maintenance yet as everything is still under warranty but time will tell how easy that will be. But so far what I can see the major items that the average owner could take care of would not be much of a problem as most things seem easy to get to. Overall I would give this vehicle a 4.9 out of 5. I hope this helps someone out?
