The 2021 Hyundai Venue was recently named the “Best Value of 2021” by Cars.com. The Best Value Award was eligible to every vehicle produced in 2021 from all manufacturers, the winner was the best representation of value based on vehicle features, warranties and overall performance for the money. What separated the 2021 Hyundai Venue from every other vehicle in the market to win this prestigious award?
Why the Hyundai Venue Shines
The 2021 Hyundai Venue offers unbeatable value, versatility and personality in a hatchback SUV. To start, the Hyundai Venue is priced at a very competitive price of $18,750. This represents one of the least expensive entries into the SUV market, but what you get with the base Venue SE trim level is anything but cheap. Despite its low price you will receive the following features for no extra cost:
- Standard 8 inch touchscreen infotainment system
- Apple Car Play
- Android Auto
- Forward Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
- Lane Keep Assist
- Keyless Entry
To save drivers even more money the 2021 Venue boasts a combined fuel economy of 31 mpg, which will have you stopping less and less to fill up your tank. But perhaps most impressively is Hyundai’s “America’s Best Warranty” which includes all of the following benefits for no cost:
- 10 year / 100,000 mile Powertrain Warranty
- 5 year / 60,000 mile Comprehensive Warranty
- 3 year / 36,000 miles No-Charge Complimentary Maintenance
- 5 year / Unlimited miles 24 hour Roadside Assistance
- 7 year / Unlimited miles Anti-Perforation Warranty
With this incredible warranty you have peace of mind that you are covered up to 10 years down the line with your vehicle and don’t have to worry about basic maintenance costs in the first three years of ownership, which is something that the competition simply can’t match. The Venue stood in particular because of how tough this year has been for many of us, an affordable and versatile hatchback SUV that is packed with features has never been in such high demand.
“In the last year, people overwhelmingly chose personal vehicles over mass transit. Paired with financial worries, affordable cars became even more important,”
said Jenni Newman, editor-in-chief, Cars.com.
“That’s why the inaugural winner of Cars.com’s Best Value award, the 2021 Hyundai Venue, is a shining example of affordability and packed features for the money. The Venue is feature packed, fuel-efficient and backed by a lengthy warranty, all priced at an affordable rate.”
“Cars.com’s editorial team of automotive experts performs more than 100 in-depth reviews of new vehicles each year in addition to producing thousands of articles for car shoppers to navigate the purchase process. Each car represented on the Best Of Awards list excels in three key criteria: quality, innovation and value.”
