I was there earlier today. The big reveal was the new Venue. It's slotted below the Kona in the lineup. It is small - about 5" shorter than the Kona. FWD only, Accent motor, but (miracle of miracles) offers a 6 speed manual. The automatic option is the new CVT. It's nicely equipped but snug inside. Rear seat is notably smaller than that of the Kona.
The model on stage was the new Denim color with Denim interior. Actually rather nice to see "not tan" "not black" and "not gray".


At this time, nobody is going to trade in their Tucson, much less their Kona, for a new Venue. But it will do well in its intended mission: Selling to twentysomethings that have a half a mil is student debt and are working two jobs to make their rent and need something with a warranty that will outlive their rescue-pet and/or their current phone.

Europe used to have the i20 Activ that filled the same hole. However, it didn't look enough junior SUV to really sell much:

Nice car I'm sure but other than being small, not my aesthetic at all.



Really hope when Tucson is redesigned it doesn't go all upright, blocky and lose that sleek 'looks like it's moving' sporty character Hyundai got famous for.

Tucson - because curbs are for mounting not scraping

I think the 2020 Sonata is very sharp, may consider one after the first year.

Do we know yet what engine size the venue and the Sonata are going to have?

Venue will have the 1.6L Gamma II engine with MPI and your choice of 6 speed manual or IVT. Sonata will have 2.5L Atkinson engine with MPI/GDI (yes, both!) in the SE and SEL, and the 1.6L Gamma II turbo in the SEL Plus/Limited - with both available only with the 8 speed automatic.

Wow! So the 2.5... this isn’t the 2.4 theta II? Also Is GDI the preferred over MPI?

Thanks!
