I appreciated my Venue, just not in the state of mind or have a need in that niche for a crossover at this time
I looked at the Corolla hatch but the cargo space is like 2/3 the size of Venues, preferred Venue styling, and also it was going to cost $2,500 more than the Venue, and the Hyundai warranty is better (though Toyotas are more long-lasting in general). However, the price difference ended up disappearing because I went with the SEL trim Venue instead of the SE. :)

In Ohio with our snow, the SUV/crossover aspect of the Venue appealed to me, not that it would be any better in the snow than a Corolla hatch. But the Venue does have a snow mode in the CVT. Does Corolla have that? Not that you need it in California.

We've been having to drive my fiancee's kids around a lot over last year (they are in their 20s and don't drive, grrr), so if I had to do it over I probably would've gone with the Kona SE base model in Lunar White for the same price as Venue SEL. Even though I prefer the Venue styling. Dream car would be a Venue that's like 20% larger in all dimensions.

I don't recall seeing a snow mode, maybe on the XSE trim? I opted for the SE trim since its a work vehicle for me (travel nurse). I think I'll reconsider the Venue if it came in hybrid format? Definitely agree that the Venue looked a lot nicer than the Kona. With the same style of driving/habits, I'm getting 8-10 more mpg.
