The more I drive my Venue Ultimate, the more I like it. It's taken me a while to get everything adjusted (seats, steering wheel, mirrors). Coming from a 2015 Honda FIT, it's also taken me a while to learn and get used to all the new features. I really like the cargo compartment height. I've been able to load & unload a 20# propane tank & 40# bags of water softener salt with no back strain.

What I find odd is that there's no promotion by Hyundai Canada of the Venue. I see lots of ads for Nissan Kicks & Santa Cruz's on Youtube. I haven't seen any Venues in the area I live in although I've seen lots of Rogues, Quashquais & Kicks. The dealership where I bought mine currently has 18 in stock!

About the only Hyundai ad is for the Cruz, but with all those Hollywood guys in it, I bet they don’t have any $$ left for the venue.
That’s ok, we will keep the little guy a well kept secret. Gotta say I’m enjoying mine more than I thought as well. 👍🏼

I've never seen a TV ad specifically for the Venue. I did see one for Hyundai's entire line of SUVs, where each one had a size-appropriate dog hanging out the window, but Venue only got about two seconds of air time in it!

They should ship those down to Ohio. :) My local dealer sells 'em as fast as they come off the truck. They had none in stock for months, and when I decided to buy one they had to get one from a dealer 100 miles away.

They then had zero in stock over the last few months. They got 2 in last week -- stellar silver and a galactic gray, but the gray one sold. I've been watching their inventory because I have a relative who is interested in one, and she asked me to let her know if they get one in so she could go and check it out. She drove mine and loves it, but she wanted to see more colors in person.

I told her she missed out on one of their nicest colors -- Galactic Gray. I told her they had one in stock, but she didn't make it over in time.

I never seen any ads either. The only reason I found mine was searching online for vehicles when I didn't know which SUV I wanted and found it on one of those car buying websites.

They had 3 on site, including mine, and when I went back a couple months later to get my roof rack the salesman said the others had sold but I haven't seen them in the road. I told him people (random people in parking lots) had been asking me about mine and my thoughts on it.

I'm so happy I went and got the Venue.

Similar to me. I knew I wanted a new Kia or Hyundai small hatch//SUV/crossover, and almost bought a 2021 Kia Rio S hatchback. But I don't really like the local Kia dealer for many reasons, so I checked out Hyundai instead.

The Venue is only $2k more than the Rio and having advantages over it mainly being an SUV, higher sitting position, more seating room, and advantage in the snow/ice made me want a Venue.

They didn't have any Venues in stock. The salesman said they sell as soon as they come off the truck in a day or 2. But I watched like 20 YouTube video reviews, and the reviews were so positive I knew it was for me and I ordered one and put a deposit down without even driving one yet.
