Hyundai Venue Urban Warrior SUV
In Australia it seems like you can never have too many SUVs. Hyundai have just launched their latest which and David Brown went along to see what it was like and found the changing nature of SUVs continues.
Hyundai’s first SUV, the 2001 Sante Fe, was portrayed as a more comfortable version of a large four-wheel drive. The new one called the Venue is at the small end of the market. Only available in 2-wheel drive it is targeted at the practical urban dweller.
Their marketing words say “it combines the rugged looks of SUV styling with light-car economy and maneuverability
So it has the appearance of an SUV, but it goes like a small car. Perfect.
Pricing excluding on road cost starts at $19,990 but that’s a manual. Most will be the six-speed auto. Top of the range is $25,500 plus.
