Yeah - and thankfully that feature has a nice big button.
Interesting that Canada's transmission modes are snow/mud/sand. Here in the states, we have regular/snow/sport mode. Unless the newer '23 Venues here also have the snow/mud/sand? USA Hyundai website doesn't clarify the modes of the IVT. It just says multi-mode.

Makes sense for Canada to have more off-road modes than the USA, but I live in extreme northern Ohio so the weather is similar to southern Canada. It'd be cool if we could download an update to give us sand/mud modes along with the snow and sport.

I use the heck out of snow mode and have used sport mode a few times when we went to larger cities and I wanted to speed up faster to merge.

Sand mode would be cool when we visit friends who live in the country -- dirt roads.

My 2021 Canadian preferred has Normal, Sport and Snow mode selections. I downloaded the 2022 and 2023 Canadian Venue owners manuals. They list the same three modes. I checked the Canadian Venue website and it says snow, sand or mud. I'm pretty sure that they mean snow mode works in snow, mud and sand, at least the owners manuals don't detail seperate mud and sand selections. Maybe somebody with a newer Canadian model can confirm the available selections?

I think I saw a YouTube review of a Venue and I think that one did have separate snow, mud and sand modes as the guy was twisting the tranny mode button.

Yeah you would think that snow mode would offer the exact same driving characteristics as mud and sand. IE: keeping the wheels from spinning mainly. So perhaps the software just allows one to cycle through two other modes that change nothing except the word on the dash from snow to mud to sand. :)

Sorta like in Spinal Tap; this amp goes to 11.

I thought the same, not much difference between snow, sand, mud.
In India they don't get snow mode. They have Normal, Eco and Sport but it has a cool looking digital instrument cluster.

my 2023 Preferred has Drive/Traction with 3 options under each. Turn the knob for Eco - Normal - Sport. Press the
knob and then turn to select Snow - Mud - Sand. Can't see getting much use out of sand mode but I am very pleased with snow mode. When driving down smaller unplowed roads a - my practice, when there were no cars or pedestrians, was to not stop - keep the car moving so you won't get stuck. So much much better now.

Thanks Ela, that clears that up. Were you surprised to get that dash display? All the literature I've seen shows the analog gauges.

Someone on this forum likened it to being in a spaceship. My 2004 echo is like a donkey cart in comparison - a very sturdy reliable donkey cart mind you. I knew the cluster would be upgraded in the 2023 but actually seeing and using all the functions is something else. Here's the echo display

I almost bought an Echo a number of times over the years. Great, simple and efficient car.

Does the new Venue all digital display have different modes you can cycle through to set it to your personal tastes/preferences? That looks awesome. I wish mine had it.

You will have to drive down to Myrtle Beach or Outer Banks North Carolina and test out the sand mode. :) I wonder if you were to remove a lot of air out of the tires and put it in sand mode, would the Venue be able to drive on the sand at the beach? Usually you only see SUVs and trucks with AWD/4x4 on the beach.

Venue isn't a hard core SUV but it sure feels more apt on dirt roads like you're noticed than regular economy cars. Venue is a crossover/SUV.

The only ones i've seen with sand/mud are the ones in india videos.
Mine has Snow and Sport modes, Canada...although i recall seeing something from california somewhere..might have been the lock nut bag/card inside it.
