Hyundai hints at Venue, its smallest SUV yet

New York show unveiling and likely 2020 launch for new model.

Would you like to stay up to date with the latest from The Executivecondominium?

Hyundai has revealed the first sketches of an upcoming SUV that is set to become the smallest in the Korean brand’s range.

The Venue is set to be unveiled at the New York motor show later this month. Details of the newcomer are currently scarce, although Hyundai says it “symbolises a trendy, unique style” and confirms it will become its smallest and “most affordable” SUV yet.

Hyundai’s corporate design is clear to see in the model sketches, with thin headlights sitting atop a large grille up front and a sloping roofline leading to a squared-off rear. The car is reminiscent of the Kona SUV, which will sit above the Venue in the Hyundai range.

Interior drawings showcase a familiar look too, with a basic-but-functional cabin design.

Hyundai has yet to confirm which markets the Venue will be launching in, although UK sales would appear likely with the current demand for compact SUVs in Britain.

Industry sources suggest that the Hyundai Venue could share its underpinnings with sister brand Kia’s latest Soul, which will be sold exclusively as an all-electric car in the UK when it arrives later this year.

   

If so, it’s likely the Venue will go on sale as an EV, although conventional petrol and diesel powertrains could still play a role.

Following its New York unveiling on 19th April, the Venue is predicted to go on sale in 2020.
