The 2021 Hyundai Venue is a subcompact crossover that provides buyers at dealerships like the Hyundai dealer near San Bernardino with ample cabin space, a wide array of standard equipment, and great value. The Venue is smaller than its Kona sibling and has a smaller wheelbase. Its nimble handling makes it the perfect ride for drivers who regularly negotiate small city spaces.
Inside the Venue, you’ll be delighted by a sophisticated interior that outshines many of its rivals. On the outside, the Venue will turn more than a few heads. With so much going for it, we’re not surprised the Hyundai Venue is so popular with buyers at the San Bernardino area Hyundai dealer and dealerships throughout America.
The 2021 Venue seats five passengers. It comes in three trim levels, listed as SE, SEL and Denim. All trims are motivated by a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 121 horsepower and 113 lb-ft of torque. Transmission duties are handled by a continuously variable transmission (CVT). The Venue is front-wheel drive only.
Fuel economy gets a boost from the Venue’s dual fuel injectors and variable-valve timing. EPA-estimated fuel economy stands at 30 mpg city/33 mpg highway.*

“The Venue comes out of the gate strong by focusing on emotional appeal. Editors appreciated the stylish exterior with its optional two-tone roof.
