Car Review - Hyundai Venue 1.6 GLS 'S' (A)
02 Oct 2020  |  Hyundai Reviews
The Hyundai Venue S isn't just your everyday Korean compact crossover. It's trendy for the old and punchy for the young. What's not to like?

Needs more effort  Posted on 27 Sep 2021

A compact crossover that needs a bit more effort. Those square daytime running lights are cool but everywhere else the design looks a bit garish regardless of what pattern is in that massive grille.

There are also plenty of hard plastics in the cabin. Its par for the course for the segment and price.

And so is the drivetrain. Reasonably muted for a CVT and with just enough push when you really need to go.

Problem is, once you're up to speed wind and road noise becomes attrocious. I cannot image how much worse it will get if you get to test drive this on the highway.

Shop elsewhere.

Review
The sibling Kia Stonic looks so much better. This car's design looks all over the place and frankly, ugly. That's why you don't see many on the roads. Pricing wise is also on the higher side for a small SUV with a NA 1.6 and a crappy CVT gearbox. Sluggish pick-up with a noisy engine and gearbox. Explains why you don't see many on the roads compared to its rivals.

Much better small SUVs like the SEAT Arona 1.0 TURBO, Kia Stonic 1.0 TURBO and Toyota Raize 1.0 TURBO can be had for less and looks way better than this.

What I like
Literally, nothing.

What I do not like
The design inside and out.
The engine and gearbox
High asking price for outdated engine and gearbox and horrendous design.

Review
Saw this arrival in the recent Motor Show 2020 and decide to give it a closer look as a friend is keen to get.

Saw its BASE model, almost fainted as the gaps with the S trims are so wide apart but with a small gap in price tag, not sure how it makes sense to bring in at the first place.

S trimmings comes with a 2-tone color which is similar to makes like Volvo XC40 and with a 17-inch rims (15-inch for base) too.

LED front and rear lights with DRL to the S trims too. Nice.

Interior is a mixture of cloth and leather seating material which is of good quality looks but no roof as options.

Driving off is ok but no electric brake which is now a common sight across many makes out there. Understand that it comes with adaptive bend lights but didnt get to see it as test drive is in the daylight.

Smooth drive in normal mode with adequate pickup too. In sports mode, relatively ok too.

Only drawback in things to have is no front sensors at parking which is good to have for a semi high car like this and no auto hold too.

Overall, its a small nimble crossover to have for its price tag (S$ 86k for S trim as at Feb 2020) but if you compare overall, you sure have more choices with this same amount.

What I like
2 tone color (in S trimmings).
17-inch rims (in S trimmings).
LED front and rear lights (in S trimmings).
Quiet interior.

What I do not like
No front sensors.
No sun or moon roof.
No auto hold.
No electric brake.
Small boot space.
