Crossover SUV’s have been surging in popularity over the last few years and now represent close to half of the new vehicle market. Two vehicles that many consumers are comparing in this segment are the 2020 Hyundai Venue and Ford EcoSport. Avoid buyers remorse and stay informed by looking at our in depth comparison on the two entry level options. (Venue SE vs EcoSport S)
Superior Safety Technology
Technology in general is one of the biggest motivators for buying a new vehicle, and safety technology is no exception. So how do the Venue SE and EcoSport S match up in this crucial category? The Hyundai Venue comes with a suite of standard safety technology, even on the entry level SE. Forward Collision-avoidance Assist (FCA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), and Lane Keep Assist are all included with the Venue SE for no additional cost, all of these features are not available even on the highest trim level EcoSport (Titanium). With the incredible value this safety technology provides, it’s no wonder the 2020 Hyundai Venue was added to the 2020 Consumer Guide Best Buy Lineup.
Affordable and Reliable
While technology and safety features are great the current economic downturn means that the vehicle price and cost of ownership are key purchase factors for everyone, and this is where the Venue SE truly shines. The Ford EcoSport S costs $1,445 more than the Venue SE to give you a huge savings on the initial purchase. Beyond the vehicle cost, the Venue offers better fuel economy, a longer powertrain and comprehensive warranty and even covers the first 3 years of your vehicle’s scheduled maintenance. These incredible offers are part of the reason why the 2020 Hyundai Venue received the Long-Term Ownership Value Reward from Kelly Blue Book and has a 9.1/10 review rating amongst Hyundai Venue owners.
