Welcome to the manual transmission Venue club! There aren't too many members, since they took it away in the US after only one year. But there are a handful of us here (Chicago_Jake, Christian Antalics)
Thanks Nicedream. Here in Canada you can still order from the factory with the Manual Transmission but the delivery wait is at least 90 days; and the Options offered in the Base Model (Called Essential here), are only a few. I had to drive a few miles to get mine after confirming with the Hyundai dealer they had it in stock, the only one I could find in the whole province with the MT. I had to wait a few days to test drive it and then bought it; had only 50 Km on it; I put 70 Km to give it a good run on the Freeway; being a new car I'm not pushing the engine hard yet; but engine power (1.6L DPI DOHC 16-Valve I4 CVVT ) seems more than adequate to me. And 6 gears to play with is great!Welcome to the manual transmission Venue club! There aren't too many members, since they took it away in the US after only one year.

Right On Chicago Jake. Yes the Venue comes with many features even in the Base model.Welcome aboard, fellow gear-shifter!
I would hardly call the base model Venue "basic" or "no frills" though. I wish I could find a car with manual door locks and windows to go along with my manual transmission. And I don't really need Lane Keep Assist or a chime that dings when the car in front of me pulls away.
But I do love the backup camera. THAT is a feature I now consider essential.
Ha! Reminds me of my beloved 1982 Toyota Tercel 4-speed. It was as simple and elegant as a tape dispenser. I wish I hadn't totaled it. I'd probably still be driving it today!Right On Chicago Jake. Yes the Venue comes with many features even in the Base model.
Basic No Frills was a 1990 Hyundai Excel (4 door hatch-back), that I had many many summers ago 🤣🤣 with no AC no Power Windows/Locks , etc. with only 90HP engine and 4 Speed Manual; but it took me everywhere I needed to go and never left me stranded; I even sold it to my sister when she was in College and she drove it one Summer from California to Florida, then she drove it for 2 years and still sold it to another student.
