the fuel economy ratings for the Venue are out and it has received an EPA-estimated 30/34/32 mpg (city/highway/combined) when equipped with an automatic transmission and 27/35/30 mpg with a manual.

It's a solid number but it isn't groundbreaking compared to the competition.

Hyundai originally targeted 33 mpg when the Venue debuted at the 2019 New York International Auto Show in April, but later revised its projection down to 32 mpg. The combined EPA figure aligns with the revision, and it beats Hyundai’s other micro-SUV, the Kona, which maxes out at 30 mpg combined (excluding the Kona EV).

The Kona is arguably a real SUV, as it offers all-wheel drive; the front-drive-only Venue does not, but its high stance looks the part. Combined EPA mileage lands the Venue at the high end of other micro-SUV poseurs — think Nissan Kicks (33 mpg), Kia Soul (up to 31 mpg) or Toyota C-HR (29 mpg). Abandon the getup for a hatchback that isn’t trying to be anything else, and you can get higher mileage still: The 2019 Honda Fit is rated 33-36 mpg combined with an automatic transmission, while the automatic-equipped 2020 Toyota Yaris hatchback is rated 35 mpg.
