Small crossovers like the 2020 Hyundai Venue are cheap cars for a new generation.

The tiny Hyundai hatchback that made its debut Wednesday at the 2019 New York International Auto Show has a smaller footprint than the Accent sedan and slots below the compact Kona in the automaker’s menu of crossovers.

Offered in SE and SEL trims, the Venue goes long on features that likely will appeal to younger buyers, even though the space doesn’t go long itself. Every Venue is equipped with an 8.0-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, 15-inch wheels, automatic emergency braking, a split-folding rear seat, active lane control, and a USB port. Two USB chargers, 17-inch wheels, heated seats, navigation, and automatic climate control are on the options list.

 

 

Hyundai didn’t say how much the Venue would cost when it goes on sale later this year, but it’s a safe bet to cost around $18,000 to start like the Nissan Kicks, Hyundai’s chief competitor.

Like the Kicks, the Venue doesn’t offer all-wheel drive on any model and relies on a 121-horsepower, 1.6-liter inline-4 solely for motivation. The Venue is equipped with a 6-speed manual as standard equipment, but more versions are likely to mated to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) when they leave the factory in Ulsan, South Korea.

The Venue’s wheelbase measures shorter than 100 inches, about 3 inches shorter than the Kona. Behind the second row, the Venue offers 18.7 cubic feet of cargo room that expands to 31.9 cubic feet with the seats folded forward.

 







 

Black or gray cloth upholstery is standard although, when paired with denim blue paint outside, denim upholstery with synthetic leather is optional.

Hyundai hasn’t yet said how efficient the Venue will be but a similar engine found in the Accent returns up to 32 mpg combined, according to the EPA. Low power and high efficiency are par for the course: None of the crossovers in the Venue’s class—Ford EcoSport, Toyota C-HR, Chevy Trax, and Kicks—are screamers.

Geared toward city-dwellers and first-time buyers, the Venue’s affordability and unique looks will be its tune. And budget shoppers will be listening.

State Street Townhouse is a residential project completed by Ben Hansen Architect.

It is located in Brooklyn, New York City, USA.

 

State Street Townhouse by Ben Hansen Architect:

“In many ways, the historic New York City townhouse is not compatible with a contemporary family’s way of life. Contemporary families tend to socialize in and around their kitchens. Members of the family move fluidly between the kitchen, dining and living rooms. Traditionally, townhouses are configured with a grand parlor level and a cramped and utilitarian garden level. This splits the living spaces and cooking spaces between two levels. This has led to a below grade cooking space with low ceilings and a beautiful, but underutilized parlor level. Our design for a townhouse on State Street resolves this problem. Each floor level has a different sized floor plate to accommodate our program. This allowed us to put both the kitchen and living areas on the parlor level. The smaller basement level is used as a guest bedroom and play space.

While the design of the State Street townhouse is unquestionably modern, it relates to its urban context. The front façade is pushed in and out to align with our neighboring buildings. In this way, the building provides a transition between the existing buildings. Our goal was to create a modern townhouse that is an integral part of its urban context.”
