2021 Hyundai Venue vs. Its Competition

2021 Hyundai Venue
Martin Padgett Martin Padgett Editorial Director

The Venue competes against a growing class of small hatchbacks pitched as crossovers to the unsuspecting.

The Kia Soul is an expressive hatchback that's front-wheel drive only, but it's a little bigger.

The tall-riding Chevy Trax offers all-wheel drive and a reasonably refined interior.

The Ford Ecosport also offers all-wheel drive, but its cabin is dreadfully composed.

The Toyota C-HR doesn't have all-wheel drive, but it's a unique hatchback with an inline-4 that nearly manages 30 mpg combined.
