2021 Hyundai Venue for Sale in Springfield, MA
Comfort, style, and value all combine to make the 2021 Hyundai Venue one of the most appealing subcompact crossovers around. This up-and-coming model, which made its debut in 2020, is the smallest and least expensive crossover in the Hyundai lineup. Since it’s only in its second year, the ’21 version hasn’t changed all that much, aside from a few nice upgrades. This includes new 17-inch wheels on the mid-level SEL trim, which also now comes standard with the previously optional Convenience Package (blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and a sliding center armrest).
The 2021 Venue also continues to come with the automaker’s 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary maintenance, which covers regular, factory-scheduled services like oil and filter changes and tire rotations. Plus, it has the industry’s best warranty coverage: a 5-year/60,000-mile new vehicle warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
Trims and Powertrain
The ’21 Venue is offered in three trim levels – the SE, SEL, and Denim – which get their power from a 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 121 hp. It’s paired to a continuously variable transmission (CVT) and front-wheel drivetrain. All Venue trims are EPA-estimated to return 30 mpg in the city and 33 mpg on the highway.
Standard and Optional Features
The SE is a well-appointed base trim with 16-inch wheels, automatic headlights, a USB port, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seatback, a rear luggage shelf, a dual-stage cargo storage system, and a rearview camera. The SEL gets 17-inch wheels, roof rails, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a sliding center armrest, automatic climate control, an additional USB port, and selectable drive modes (Normal, Sport, and Snow). A Premium Package is available to add heated side mirrors, a sunroof, keyless entry with push-button ignition, heated front seats, Hyundai’s Blue Link Connected Car system, which includes a number of convenient remote communications functions, and LED headlights, taillights, and daytime running lights.
Minus the LED headlights and sunroof, the range-topping Denim comes with all of the Premium Package’s features; the LED headlights remain optional. The Denim also gets a two-tone blue and white interior and exterior color scheme and simulated-leather and- cloth-appointed seats. It’s not eligible for the sunroof, though.
Technology and Safety
Hyundai’s SmartSense package of advanced driver aids comes standard on each trim. With the SE, this consists of forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, and driver attention warning. The SEL and Denim have blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert.
The SE gets an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, a four-speaker audio system, and HD radio; the SEL adds a another pair of speakers for an improved listening experience. An enhanced infotainment system with satellite radio and integrated navigation is available for this mid-grade trim, but the smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto) will revert to the plug-in type. The top-of-the-line Denim gets all of the SEL’s optional features as standard equipment.
