Hyundai's 2020 Venue debuted at the New York auto show as the brand's newest, and smallest, crossover that will offer a new entry point to Hyundai's SUV lineup below the Kona, which is also considered a subcompact SUV.

The Venue is 5.1 inches shorter than the Kona with a 3.2-inch shorter wheelbase. It's about half an inch taller.

The 2020 Venue emphasizes styling a bit more than Hyundai's other utility vehicles with a front end that appears to take design cues from the three-row 2020 Palisade that debuted in the fall as the brand's flagship SUV.

A 1.6-liter naturally aspirated inline-four is the single engine in the lineup and should produce 121 horsepower. Power will be delivered through a six-speed manual or continuously variable transmission to a front-wheel drivetrain.

The company is hoping to achieve a fuel economy rating of 33 miles per gallon combined. Official EPA ratings will be available later this year.
