2023 Hyundai Venue vs. Its Competition

Shop the Venue against the Kia Soul and Mazda CX-30 and you’ll find that it’s cheaper than its rivals, but not quite as polished.

The Soul offers up impressive interior volume, while the CX-30 has a sporty feel over the road.

The Nissan Kicks is equally cheap, but it feels it.

Chevy’s pint-size Trax has a high seating position and optional all-wheel drive, but it lacks some key safety tech.

Finally, you might find the Subaru Crosstrek to be worth the extra cash due to its upscale feel and standard all-wheel drive.
