2020 Hyundai Venue vs 2020 Honda HR-V – Metro Detroit MI
The 2020 Hyundai Venue has arrived at Glassman Hyundai, your local Hyundai dealer serving Detroit and the surrounding areas, and it is a brand new compact crossover aiming to shake up the segment. Honda sought to do something similar when it introduced the HR-V for the 2016 model year. Now, the 2020 Honda HR-V is among the old stalwarts of the segment, but it continues to be one of the more popular options. With that in mind, we present our 2020 Hyundai Venue vs 2020 Honda HR-V comparison to learn what makes the Venue tick and what sets it apart from the HR-V and the segment in general.

While both the Venue and the HR-V are compact crossovers, the Venue is intended to be ultracompact. Consider that it is smaller than even the Kona. Both seat up to five passengers. The base HR-V provides 96.1 cubic feet of passenger volume, and it is impressive engineering that the Venue provides 91.9. The Venue arguably makes better use of its available room for cargo space, but you should expect less of it due to the nature of the vehicle. You get 18.7 cubic feet behind the second row and 31.9 with the seat down. The HR-V provides 24.3 cubic feet behind the second row 58.8 with the seat down.

As you move up the trim levels, you get integrated navigation, dual USB charging and voice command support with voice recognition.
