2020 Hyundai Venue Revealed On Times Square Billboard

Hyundai is set to unveil the 2020 Venue at the New York Auto Show tomorrow morning, but that hasn’t stopped the company from giving Times Square visitors an early look at their newest crossover.

As noticed by Twitter user Ed Kim, a Times Square billboard has revealed the crossover in full. It shows the model will be heavily influenced by the Kona as it has slender LED turn signals which are mounted above rectangular headlights. Despite the styling similarities, the Venue features a unique front bumper and a different grille.

Bigger changes occur further back as the Venue eschews the soft curves of the Kona for a more boxy and upright appearance. The Venue also has a relatively flat roof with white contrasting paint.

Other notable styling features include plastic body cladding and a pronounced character line. We can also see five-spoke alloy wheels and a limited amount of chrome trim.

Hyundai hasn’t said much about the Venue, but teaser sketches and spy photos have shown the cabin will have a three-spoke steering, a floating infotainment system and squared-off air vents. We can also expect metallic trim and an intuitive center stack with three large control knobs.

Previous reports have suggested the Venue will be positioned as a niche vehicle and slot below the Kona which starts at $19,990. Hyundai has already said it will become their “smallest and most affordable SUV” and has been designed to accommodate “busy lifestyles with an abundance of playful and practical features.”

    So it’s pretty much the same thing as ix25 that was revealed earlier today, but with a different front end.

  • Bananarama

    Truly awful grille. Ruins an otherwise generic, fine design.

  • ME
  • Well, it looks better than the horrendous new ix25.

  • no25

    that whisker basket grille is a no go. just horrible designing.

  • Leconte Dave

    I bet it won’t have AWD

  • Wayne Alan Carr Heyes

    It’s awful!!!!

    It has a Kia design interior and the outside has no design to it at all!

    It’s like they couldn’t be bothered and they have rushed the design and model

    And Venue? Why not just call it a Hyundai conference call!!!!

    I basically gain almost $6,000-$8,000 every month through the internet. It is great to certainly replace my old work income, primarily taking into account I simply just work almost 20 hour or so in one week in a home office.I got rid of my job after working for the same business enterprise for several years, I required very trusted earnings. I was not thinking about packages that miguide you to make you millionnare within few days you notice all over the net. Those all are sort of ponzi mlm marketing plan wherein you have to first get interested customers then sell a product to friends and relatives or any individual so that they will be in your team. The most important part of working on-line is that I am always home with the little ones and also enjoy lots of free time with my family members in various beautiful beaches of the world. Honestly,it is actually simpler than you would believe, all you need to do is submit a very simple form to receive front line access to the Home Profit System. The instructions are really simple, you don’t have to be a computer expert, however you must understand how to use the internet. It is as easy as being on Facebook. Here’s the most effective way to start ->-> BUBL.BE/o

    The interior is nicer than the exterior = which is ungainly to say the least (the Santa Fe does that design language much better).

    Exactly what I was expecting. It is a carbon copy of one of the Hyundai vehicles being introed in Shanghai this week. Not sure if the boxy (and un-flowing) look will cut it with 20-somethings. Bet they go for the Kona over this.

    This is probably aimed at the Chinese market…it’s seems to have that design language.
