The new 2022 Hyundai Venue SEL is ready!  VENUE is the subcompact SUV loaded with a cool stylish look, and an abundance of tech and safety features. Check out its chiseled angles, cascading mesh grille, and the flamboyance of the new sport trim adds a dash of trendiness. 

There’s a fuel-efficient Smartstream 1.6L 4-cylinder engine and the availability of Drive Mode Select to customize driving dynamics. Choose Normal, Sport or when the road is slippery; Snow mode for enhanced traction control.

When it comes to safety and safe driving, SmartSense is at your command. This is a suite of advanced safety features designed to help prevent accidents from occurring. To help keep you aware of potential hazards, there’s Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection. Whether it’s a slowed vehicle in your path or a pedestrian walking into the road, you’re alerted to trouble ahead. If necessary, emergency braking is automatically applied to help avoid a collision.

If a driver should begin drifting outside of the lane without signaling, Lane Keeping Assist alerts you and actively engages your Venue’s steering, nudging you back into your lane. If fatigue or inattentiveness is detected in your driving behavior, a feature called Driver Attention Warning alerts you that it may be time to take a break from driving.

Beyond these standard features, Venue also comes with Blind-Spot Collision Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, which act as extra sets of eyes. Venue’s core safety engineering starts with a body constructed of advanced high-strength steel and zones designed to absorb and disperse impacts, helping to protect you and your passengers inside the cabin.

Step inside, to see that Venue has seating for up to five, with fun features for the drivers and passengers, such as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto.

Venue offers plenty of technology. You can connect your devices using USB, auxiliary and 12-volt ports, an 8” touchscreen, and control many of their functions from the large touchscreen display located front and center.

Venue seats up to five, but if you’ve got cargo to carry or gear to pack, it offers the flexibility of 60/40 split fold-down display or the voice command button on your steering wheel to access your smartphone, and an adjustable two-level cargo floor is also available. Slide open the playlists, maps, text messages and more’ available power sunroof, and Venue feels even more spacious inside.

Download the MyHyundai app, and Hyundai Bluelink® transforms it into a remote control that lets you unlock your Venue Limited’s doors and start the engine before walking out of the house. With the Amazon Echo® or Google Home” device, drivers can use voice commands to set Venue Limited’s cabin temperature while still in the house. Bluelink’s Guidance package lets you search for addresses or points of interest on your smartphone, then download the driving directions to Venue Limited’s navigation system.
