Hyundai Venue vs. Competitors for Sale in Fairfield, CT
If you’re looking to buy a subcompact crossover, you have a lot of company out there. This vehicle segment has become scorching hot, and automakers continue to expand their lineups so that there’s something for everyone. That much selection, though, might seem like too much of a good thing when you’re taxed with choosing just one. Here, we compare a few of the most popular “cute utes,” or small utility vehicles, to help overwhelmed shoppers decide which will best suit their needs. The Hyundai Venue recently debuted to a solid reception, which it clearly deserves based on how it stands up to the existing competition. Let’s see exactly how it matches up to the Chevrolet Trax, Ford EcoSport, Honda HR-V, Mazda CX-3, and Toyota C-HR.
Warranty Coverage and Pricing
The Hyundai Motor Company is known for its generous warranty terms, and now it’s added something else: 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary scheduled maintenance with each new vehicle sold or leased. Toyota includes 2 years of free scheduled maintenance, but the other manufacturers mentioned here either charge for a maintenance program or don’t offer one at all. As for warranties, the 2020 Hyundai Venue gets the most coverage of all the vehicles mentioned here: a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty, and a 7-year/unlimited-mileage anti-perforation warranty. Kia matches the terms of the first two, but its anti-perforation coverage tops off at 5 years/100,000 miles.
The Venue also has the lowest base MSRP ($17,350 with the manual transmission and $18,550 with the automatic) in the selection of vehicles mentioned here, beating the Ford EcoSport ($19,995), Honda HR-V ($20,820), Toyota C-HR ($21,295), Chevy Trax ($21,300), and Mazda CX-3 ($22,040). And those who enjoy the control and experience of controlling the gears themselves will appreciate that the Venue is the only one of these vehicles that can be bought with a manual transmission.
Fuel Efficiency and Safety Equipment
The 2020 Hyundai Venue boasts fuel economy numbers in the 30s both around town and on the highway. Venues with an automatic transmission have an EPA rating of 30 mpg city/34 mpg highway, which beats all of the competitors that we compare it to on this page. (With the stickshift, the Venue still makes good numbers: 27 mpg around town and 35 mpg on the highway.) Falling a bit short of that mark are the Trax (26 city/31 highway), the Mazda CX-3 (29 city/34 highway), the EcoSport (27 city/29 highway), the C-HR (27 city/31 highway), and the HR-V (28 city/34 highway).
The 2020 Hyundai Venue, the 2020 Toyota C-HR, and the 2020 Mazda CX-3 include more standard safety technology than the others mentioned here – although the Venue gets lane keeping assist and a drowsy-driver detection system, neither of which you’ll find on the CX-3 or C-HR (which, don’t forget, both cost several thousand dollars more than the Hyundai). Honda, Ford, and Chevrolet reserve most standard safety features for the more expensive trims of their subcompact crossovers.
