The interior itself is designed in such a simplistic and stylish way that it seems like it punches above its price point. Overall, this is a great choice for people who just want a good SUV while also wanting the same features as with the other choices. This 2022 Hyundai Venue review will look over the specs and features that come with every model.
There are not many changes made to the design and features of the 2022 Hyundai Venue. The top-tier Denim trim has been replaced with the name “Limited”, fitting in with the naming scheme of Hyundai’s other vehicles.

With its low cost, it seems like an enticing choice for people looking for a simple crossover for their daily commutes. Three trim levels are available for buyers: SE, SEL, and Limited.

The 2022 Hyundai Venue specs are the same across all the different trim levels with its Smartstream 1.6-Liter 4-Cylinder engine being the star of the show. It’s capable of producing around 121 horsepower and 113 pounds-feet of torque. Another similarity across all models is the front-wheel drive setup that’s paired with an Intelligent Variable Transmission system. The Hyundai Venue rides atop a set of 15-inch alloy wheels for the base SE model. Once you get to the SEL and Limited models, the wheels are upgraded to 17-inch alloys. It’s the same story with the brakes of the Venue as the SE only comes with front disc brakes as standard while the SEL and Limited get rear disc brakes as well. The suspension system on all models is the same with the front being composed of independent MacPherson struts and the rear held up by coupled torsion beam suspension.

INTERIOR, SOLACE & BAGGAGE
The dimensions of the 2022 Hyundai Venue interior space is on the smaller side of things with the total interior volume being around 110.6 cubic feet. This crossover can seat up to 5 passengers within 91.9 cubic feet of space. With the SE model, all seats come with cloth seating surfaces which can be upgraded to a combination of leatherette and cloth when you go up the trim levels. Heating for the front seats is only available on the highest trim level. The cabin itself is well-designed and is themed to look a lot more modern. One nice addition we like is the powered sunroof which lets in a bit of an energizing feel within the cabin. The seats themselves can be folded down in a 60/40 split which allows you more choices between passenger space and cargo storage. The cargo space of the Hyundai Venue sits at around 18.7 cubic feet with the rear seats deployed. This goes up to 31.9 cubic feet with the rear seats folded up and stowed.
The infotainment system found across all models of the Hyundai Venue are quite similar to each other, with the Limited trim level having some additional features. Both packages come with an 8-inch touchscreen where passengers can control the different infotainment features available. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity come standard to all the models of the Hyundai Venue. Bluetooth is also an option for those who want to use their phones hands-free or if they want to stream music from their device. The audio system found on the SE models is composed of a 4-speaker setup with a pair located at the front and rear of the car. The SEL and Limited trim level raises the number of speakers to 6 with the addition of 2 tweeters.
The safety suite found on Hyundai’s vehicles is always extensive and jam-packed with driver-assistive features and the 2022 Hyundai Venue is no exception. Some standard features include a Collision-Avoidance Assist, Pedestrian Detection, Cyclist Detection for the Limited trim, and a Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning. The Blind-Spot Monitoring system is not available on the base SE model but is present on the SEL and Limited trim levels.
