Sort of replaces the now discontinued Soul 1.6 base. Significantly smaller inside than the Soul but almost as much usable space as a Kona. Like it. Since I'm a HyunKia fan it would be on my short list. Kia will be introducing a platform mate to slip in beneath the Soul in size though it might be priced higher, looks a bit like a really small Seltos but no word whether it will hit America. Can't build enough sub-compact SUV's apparently.

Did drive the '20 SOUL . https://www.hyundai-forums.com/threads/test-drive-kia-soul-lx-2-0-ltr-w-c-v-t.660535/ and a RIO hatch , https://www.hyundai-forums.com/threads/test-drive-another-2020-kia-rio-w-c-v-t.660814/ . How do you like your '17 Soul ? How's the gas mileage ? We have an Linen Beige '18 Accent SE with the 6 speed auto . Average of 38.6 m.p.g..

Here in Canada, its suppose to replace the Accent hatchback.

The Venue is a very interesting simple vehicle. The engine is a 1.6L, timing chaing driven, NOT gas directed engine, which is getting rare in 2020. Rear beam suspension with shocks, you can even get rear drum brakes, which I prefer and I never replaced any drum brakes on any of my cars, only had to clean them, very low maintenance and durable.

The only thing "new" in this vehicle mechanically is the new IVT (CVT) transmission, which apparently works very well. It is chain driven, not belt driven. I still do prefer the previous 6 speed automatic which was very good in the Accent (my mother owns one).

Other than that, this car is very practical and low maintenance. Other than the transmission, the rest of the car is very well known.
