Hyundai has high hopes for its upcoming 2020 Hyundai Venue subcompact crossover. There’s something else that’s fairly high with this new crossover: it’s fuel economy. The official EPA ratings for Hyundai’s latest are now official.
According to Hyundai the Venue will offer fuel economy ratings of 30 mpg city, 34 mpg highway or 32 mpg combined when equipped with its CVT automatic. Opting for the manual transmission will reduce those ratings to 27 mpg city, 35 mpg highway or 30 mpg combined.
In terms of the competition, the Venue will be near the top of the pack when it comes to fuel economy. Only the Nissan Kicks bests it with ratings of 31 mpg city and 36 mpg highway. Still, the Venue’s ratings should be good enough to win it over buyers who are fuel cost conscious.
All versions of the 2020 Venue are powered by a naturally-aspirated 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 121 horsepower and 113 pound-feet of torque. Buyers can add optional all-wheel-drive, but otherwise this power is sent to the front wheels.
The 2020 Hyundai Venue will begin rolling into Hyundai stores next month. Hyundai has yet to release pricing information regarding the Venue.
