A rare mid-year evaluation done by Consumer Guide led to the addition of the Hyundai Venue subcompact SUV to the publication’s Best Buy Lineup. The versatility, safety, easy maneuverability, and family-oriented personality of the Venue helped it join three fellow Hyundai vehicles on the esteemed Consumer Guide Best Buy list: the Hyundai Palisade, Kona, and Accent.
Consumer Guide judges lauded the affordability of Hyundai Venue, its surprising amount of cargo and passenger space when considering its smaller size, its ability to accommodate everything from daily commutes to weekend getaways, and its long list of standard comfort, convenience, and safety features. Together, these attributes make for a high-value family SUV.
Tom Appel, the publisher of Consumer Guide, praised the Hyundai Venue and spoke to how it won over the judges, listing its “spunky design personality, pleasant interior ambiance, fuel economy, and passenger/cargo versatility” as just some of the factors which led to its Best Buy designation.
Right SUV, Right Time
Hyundai is proud to be honored with the Consumer Guide Best Buy award. Scott Margason, Hyundai North America’s Director of Product Planning, said, “The recognition reinforces the embodiment of value and functionality in a small, charismatic product offering, during a time in which extravagant purchases have been put on hold.”
