Hyundai’s New Venue Model Is The Stylish, Compact SUV You’ve Been Looking For

Looking for a car that drives beautifully, yet fit for the city? We've found it

As far as cars go, SUVs have the It-factor—everyone wants the practicality they offer up, with everything from high-views, state-of-the-art safety features, and plenty of space to suit the entire family. But no one wants to feel like they’re driving a four-wheeler monster truck, so the SUV provides the perfect solution with its compact road presence and interior space. Navigating which one best suits you, is another story though. 

Enter: Hyundai’s 2021 Venue model. 

The Venue compact SUV draws on the company’s extensive experience in the sports utility market, which dates back to the launch of the ever-popular Santa Fe in 2001, with Hyundai Motor Company Australia Chief Executive Officer, JW Lee saying of the latest addition” “The new Venue is ahead of the curve, offering customers a high level of value in a practical and well-equipped compact SUV.” 

Basically, the new range-entry model combines the rugged looks and practical benefits of an SUV and light car, with advanced safety technologies, all with a price that won’t break the bank. 

It also comes equipped with a large tablet-style multimedia display, which includes Apple CarPlay, AndroidAuto, and a reverse camera, all with a sophisticated and sleek finish thanks to the use of black, grey, and denim-coloured interior trim combinations. 


The Venue comes fitted out with its new Aussie-tuned suspension and steering calibration, too, all designed to tackle our uniquely challenging urban and country roads, including unique calibrations suited to snow, mud, or even sand driving—so you’ll feel safe on those weekend getaways exploring all the breathtaking locations our country has to offer. 

Not to mention, its automatic variants come with a Drive Mode system that allows the driver to choose a powertrain setting best suited to their personal driving style. 

The result? A charming and fun car, with intuitive control responses, communicative steering, and playful chassis dynamics that make it continually rewarding to drive.
