"2020 Hyundai Venue an urban runabout for millennials"
The advertising for the Venue touted the car as being for "millennials".
I'm curious how accurate that is so, if people don't mind please post your age. I'll start...

Soon to be 61. Of course, they said the same thing on the original marketing for the Kia Soul -- and all I ever saw driving them were older people.
not sure where I belong in the ages, or even care...75...I still have my 1999 Camaro SS convertible who's name is Audrey, and is still as good as new, and Audrey goes topless during the warm months...my 2022 Ultimate is my daily driver and the first new vehicle, or any vehicle, I've bought in 20 years, and all my daily drivers for the last 50+ years have lived long lives, normally 20+ years...I love my Venue and I think I've mastered all the changes made in vehicles over the last 20 years, where as before this vehicle, the only thing I had to learn was how to put my favorite radio stations on the 6 or so buttons on the AM/FM radio, and then years down the road had to get the manual out of the glove box to again figure out how to change the stations on the buttons...yes I'm 75. 馃槀
Ha! Great topic. I'm 64. I think this happens a lot, when cars aimed toward younguns get snapped up by seasoned citizens who are savvy enough to recognize a bargain when they see one.

My last car was a 2005 Scion xA, which was also aimed at first-time car buyers. I bought it in 2005 when I was closing in on fifty.

I'm a 27 year old who's trying to make it.
Gen X here. It is safe to say the marketing dept missed the mark with the venue.
Hyundai should keep making this one with the odd improvements and keep this in this price range and advertise it and with the economy the way it is now, the vehicle will sell, and maybe we'll see it going down the assembly line in North America.

54 here. Just got mine last week. Venue LTD. Great price and size for people my age with no small kids around.
67 years old. I have owned my 2020 Scarlet Pearl SEL with the convenience and tech options since April 2020. Have 17K trouble free miles on it. Love my 40mpg Venue!
I am 49 soon to be 50 in 2 months. Millennials are all over the map as to what they buy. Can't predict them. Most of them probably happily accept whatever hand-me-down vehicles they get from their parents, grandparents, uncles/aunts. It's free or cheap, and thus more money left for tech goodies.

My two millennial nephews drive hand-me-downs. My mom can't drive anymore (dementia) and gave her 25k mint 2015 Jeep Patriot to the older one in 2020, and the younger one got my sister's 2014 Fiat 500 small car.

A millennial young lady at work drives a 2012 Civic coupe that is about half her age. She loves Hondas (her whole family has them) and she bought it last year (has a car payment). Other millennials at work drive 3-4-year-old small SUVs like Jeep Renegade, Ford Escape, and Chevy Trax. They all mostly like domestic brands for some reason (parental influence I suspect).

The millennials I know drive cars that they cannot afford 馃槆
BMWs, Mercedes, Tesla 3's, Infiniti Coupes.
1K per month car payments.

the thing is they've never felt and heard the thunder of a fire eating V8...over the years I've had and bought new with the options I wanted starting back in 1967, a 67 Dodge R/T, then a 70 Charger R/T and then a 73 Corvette Stingray all with big block engines and then a few less power full vehicles because of family ties and then, a 1999 Camaro SS convertible which I still have, and my daily drivers looked after my daily needs, and the SS with the way I have it optioned out takes care my need for thunder 馃榿...it's a new world now, like the Jetsons series from years ago. 馃槖my Venue is now my new daily driver.
...My last car was a 2005 Scion xA, which was also aimed at first-time car buyers. I bought it in 2005 when I was closing in on fifty...
I wanted an xA, but sadly, they quit selling them. Had to settle for a Yaris hatchback, which is also now discontinued.
32 and patiently waiting for my venue 馃榿 I ordered it in april

62 soon to be ormer Toyotal Echo owner - a car they also thought would appeal to a younger crowd . I was in my 40s when I bought the Echo. It was so easy to get in and out and as we both aged, i came to appreciate that more. I'm waiting for my 2023 to come in - perhaps before Christmas

My mom has had here echo for 20 years. Bought it brand new and loves that little car. Very easy to get in and out of indeed.
She says the Venue is alittle harder to get into to, but not much.
Is there any way to do polls on this message boards? I'd love to see these user ages displayed on a histogram.
