2024 Hyundai Venue vs 2024 Kia Soul in Columbia SC

2024 Hyundai Venue Overview

The Venue and Soul both win admirers with their fascinating designs. People love the Venue's bright, soulful colors, interesting wheel choices, and entertaining tech. The Soul wins points for these things, too, although it's currently sporting an exterior that's behind the times. It's likely that Kia will fully redesign the Soul very soon, but it's not going to be for its 2024 Kia Soul. For this reason, the 2024 Hyundai Venue is a more exciting prospect to most people. Stivers Hyundai will have the newest Venue available to our customers. Here's how it wins out over one of the most popular compact crossovers in the world.

Some crossovers get by on their performance; the Venue gets by on its exterior. As affordable compacts, neither model is overly concerned about winning a race at the track any time soon. People who buy a Venue or Soul aren't in a hurry anyway. It's about enjoying the view. Hyundai's Venue comes with some of the most playful colors available on any crossover. Its Intense Blue and Ultimate Red colors are as bright as it gets, and the paints on a Venue just pop more than the ones on a 2024 Kia Soul. For more serious buyers, the Venue has the more mature look of the two models. Its available LED headlamps, chrome grille, and LED headlamps are very nicely done. For the 2024 Kia Soul, you'll notice that the exterior is aging a bit. Its very bulky back end probably doesn't have much longer before it needs a full redesign.

As the more expensive of the two models, a 2024 Kia Soul needs to offer substantially more than the 2024 Hyundai Venue. The problem for Kia is that it doesn't. A Venue is available with cloth/leatherette combination seating, heated front seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and even a sunroof (SEL trim). Kia also delivers many of these features on their new Soul, but with it being the higher priced model, the question becomes, why pay more for a Soul when you can get the same features on a Venue for less? Trims like the Venue SEL boast dual-zone automatic temperature control, an 8-inch touchscreen display, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Stivers Hyundai can also give customers great deals on the latest Venue so that they save even more money off its already reasonable price.

Hyundai Venue Driver-Assist Tech

Compact models are on the smaller side, so it makes sense that people want to get the best safety tech for their compact crossover. Hyundai's SmartSense is just as advanced as Kia Drive Wise, and many people prefer the flow of SmartSense features more. With features like Driver Attention Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning, and Rear Occupant Alert, the Venue has one of the best safety platforms of any model under $20,000. It's just a better value than the latest Soul is able to offer. While the Soul does throw in a lot of driver-assist features on their later trims, they're a lot more expensive than the Venue's SE or SEL trim. The 2024 Hyundai Venue vs 2024 Kia Soul is the better option for those seeking a top-notch model for driver-assist features. You can test out the Venue's driver-assist features during a test drive at Stivers Hyundai.

Winner: 2024 Hyundai Venue

Compact crossovers like the Venue and Kia Soul are in short supply in 2024. They're also unique in that they start at less than $20,000, something that's almost unheard of in today's market. Both the Soul and Venue have a solid reputation for their affordability and nicer-than-you'd-expect designs. However, the 121-horsepower Venue is just plain nice. It's less expensive than the Soul. It comes with a super sporty exterior that looks premium. And it has great driver-assist features that don't make you pay for expensive add-ons. Overall, most people in Columbia would choose the 2024 Hyundai Venue vs 2024 Kia Soul.
