2021 Hyundai Venue vs 2021 Hyundai Kona

Serving Memphis, TN

The Hyundai line holds several impressive crossover models that are loaded with appeal. If you are in the market for a smaller crossover, the 2021 Venue and the 2021 Kona are exciting possibilities. Both models are classified as compact crossovers, but their differences are immediately apparent with a quick look at their exterior styling. Are you eager to get to know more about these popular models?


The Venue has a more affordable base price, and it is available with one engine option across its three trims. This is a Smartstream four-cylinder, 1.6-liter engine. With an intelligent variable transmission, it gives you 121 horsepower. The Kona has two engine options. The first few trims come with an I-4, 2.0-liter engine paired with a Shiftronic six-speed auto transmission. These trims benefit from the production of 147 horsepower. The top trims pair a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine with an EcoShift seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to deliver 175 horsepower.


These popular Hyundai crossovers have unique design traits that make them easy to tell apart. The 2021 Venue has horizontal contouring down the sides with a tall, boxy profile. The Kona’s exterior is smoothly tapered with athletic, angled accents across the sides. Both of these models have slit-like headlamps sitting over prominent foglamp ports and significant lower-body molding.


Styling is also different inside the cabins, but many of the features in the Venue are also available in the Kona. These include USB ports, smart device integration, auto temperature control, a touch control screen, a sound system, and other gear. With eight unique trim levels across these two models, you should spend time getting to know each trim level individually through a stop at our dealership.
