FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., May 4, 2020 – Hyundai Venue is the most recent addition to the 2020 Consumer Guide Best Buy Lineup thanks to a rare mid-year evaluation by the publication. From everyday activities to weekend fun, Venue is a great fit in accommodating busy lifestyles with an abundance of personality and practical features, including preventative safety, maneuverability and connectivity. Venue joins three additional Hyundai products originally selected to the 2020 Consumer Guide Best Buy roster including the Hyundai Palisade - midsize crossover, Kona - subcompact crossover for the second year in a row and Accent - subcompact car for the third year in a row. Venue is built in Ulsan, Korea and is on sale at Hyundai dealerships across the country.
“We appreciate the rare mid-year addition of the Hyundai Venue to Consumer Guides’ widely respected 2020 Best Buy list,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor North America. “The recognition reinforces the embodiment of value and functionality in a small, charismatic product offering, during a time in which extravagant purchases have been put-on-hold.”
According to Consumer Guide judges, multiple factors contributed to Venue’s addition to the list. The Venue’s subcompact size makes it one of the smallest and most affordable vehicles in the class, while also offering more passenger and cargo room than expected, and an impressive list of standard and available comfort/convenience and safety features.
“The new Hyundai Venue takes aim at the penny-pinching end of this segment, undercutting the starting price of the Kicks by about $1500,” Said Tom Appel, publisher Consumer Guide. “Though its ride quality, engine noise levels, and extra-tidy overall dimensions will remind you you’re in a bargain-priced vehicle, the Venue wins us over nonetheless with its spunky design personality, pleasant interior ambiance, fuel economy, and passenger/cargo versatility.”
Consumer Guide evaluates numerous vehicles during the year to determine which ones prove their value and available features. Vehicles selected for the Automotive Awards offer a combination of features and options plus the dynamic qualities that make for safe, enjoyable and reliable transportation choices.
