The South Korean crossover Hyundai Venue can no longer be bought with a manual transmission – recently, such a version of the model has lost much in demand. It is reported that for all trim levels of the subcompact crossover version of the 2021 model year, the CVT will be standard.

One of the most important car segments in the past few years has been crossovers. In particular, small crossovers make up a huge share of the sales of many companies around the world every year. Hyundai is no stranger to this, and their smallest crossover, the Venue, has “gotten into the fight” with its rivals, offering similar dimensions that certainly sound familiar, but with certain features and elements that help it become a serious contender.

A Hyundai spokesman recently revealed in an interview with reporters that the Korean brand will no longer offer a manual transmission for the 2021 Hyundai Venue.

Cause? Lack of demand for a similar version of the model. To be honest, we were not particularly surprised to learn about such a decision. Sure, the idea of ​​driving a rather sprightly 1.6-liter four-cylinder with a manual transmission might appeal to some, but there aren’t many people like that.

The six-speed manual transmission was previously only available on the base SE trim, which also offered a CVT as an option. Now, for the 2021 version of the crossover, the CVT will be standard on all Venue trims. With this gearbox, the engine will consume 7.84 liters of fuel for every 100 km. in the city and 6.92 liters. on the highway.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the budget Hyundai Venue will receive an intelligent transmission. The novelty will combine the properties of a classic manual transmission and “automatic”, which should increase the comfort of driving.
