    Looking for an affordable and fun-to-drive subcompact SUV? Then there is a good chance it will come down to the 2024 Chevy Trax vs 2024 Hyundai Venue for you. They have very comparable MSRPs, so they will appeal to shoppers with a similar budget range. Plus, each one offers an impressive array of convenience and safety features for a reasonable price tag. These energetic and wallet-friendly small SUVs are perfect for students, young professionals, and anyone trying to watch their spending who still wants a high-quality vehicle from a top manufacturer. We understand that shopping for a vehicle is a big decision and we want to make sure you are informed in your choices. Below, we will review the highlights and differences between these two options.

  • Performance/Safety

    Engine Options

    Let's start things off by looking at performance and safety. Nobody wants to drive a vehicle that feels sluggish or doesn't keep them safe on the roads. The engine options are different in unique ways for these vehicles. The Hyundai Venue has a 1.6 L I-4 engine, while the Chevy Trax has a 1.2 L EcoTec turbocharged engine. EcoTec engines are trademarked by General Motors and are designed to boost fuel efficiency. Ultimately, these two vehicles are just about identical when it comes to fuel economy. If you have to tackle long drives for work every day or enjoy taking road trips on the weekends, you are probably looking for a vehicle that won't land you at the pump too often, and you should be satisfied with either of these options.

    While fuel economy is nearly identical with these models, horsepower and torque are anything but. The Chevy Trax offers you an impressive 137 hp and 162 lb-ft of torque, while the Hyundai Venue gives you a somewhat lackluster 121 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque. If performance is at the top of your must-have list for a compact SUV, you will probably do quite well with the Chevy Trax.

    Ground Clearance

    Another difference to be aware of is ground clearance. The Chevy Trax enjoys some impressive ground clearance for its vehicle category at 7.3 inches. The Hyundai Venue, on the other hand, only sees a ground clearance of 6.69 inches. If you want to be able to drive over small obstacles or bumpy roads with a bit more confidence and the undercarriage of your vehicle won't suffer damage, you will feel more satisfied in the higher Chevy Trax.

    Safety Features

    Now, let's talk about safety. Unfortunately, the Hyundai Venue leaves much to be desired in standard driver-assist features. The only features standard on all trims of the Venue will be the Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Lane Keeping Assist, Driver Attention Warning, and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning. Additional available driver assist features are very limited.

    However, the Chevy Trax has the standard Chevy Safety Assist on all trims. This will include Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian Braking, a Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and IntelliBeam high beam assist. You will notice immediately that the Venue does not have the Following Distance Indicator that the Chevy Trax has. Furthermore, the Trax can be ordered with the Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and Adaptive Cruise Control. Unfortunately, the Venue does not have any available Adaptive Cruise Control. This could make the Chevy Trax more appealing to long-distance drivers who want the freedom to take their foot off the pedal occasionally, knowing the vehicle will self-adjust to keep a safe distance from other cars.

  • Comfort/Cargo

    Passenger Space

    Now, let's look at comfort and cargo. The moment you slide into either vehicle, you will be struck by a size difference. The Chevy Trax has a noticeably larger cabin than the Hyundai Venue. The Chevy Trax not only has more head and shoulder room for front and rear seat passengers, but it even enjoys nearly four more inches of legroom for rear passengers than the Venue. For this reason, the Chevy Trax is the clear choice for anyone who regularly transports tall passengers. So, while the Venue might be okay for drivers who mostly transport child rear-seat passengers, if you need the option to keep adult passengers comfortable, it will have to be the Chevy Trax. Plus, the Chevy Trax has 98 cu.ft. of passenger volume while the Hyundai Venue only has 91.9 cu.ft. of passenger volume. So, the Trax enjoys more than six extra cubic feet of space for passengers.

    Seating Options

    As for driver comfort, the Hyundai Venue has an available six-way power adjustable driver seat, while the Chevy Trax has an available eight-way power adjustable driver seat with lumbar support, so the Trax will get you two additional positions in the driver seat plus support for that sensitive lower back region. Having lumbar support is especially beneficial on long drives when it is easy to arrive at your destination with muscle pain and fatigue if you are not in a comfortable seat.

    Cargo Space

    What about your passengers' belongings? You will also have more room for their stuff in the Chevy Trax compared to the Hyundai Venue. With the rear seats down, the Chevy Trax gets 54.1 cu.ft. of cargo space, and even with the rear seats up, you will enjoy 25.6 cu.ft. of cargo volume. In the Hyundai Venue, the maximum cargo volume with the rear seats down sits at 31.9 cu.ft., and with the rear seats up, it drops to 18.7 cu.ft. You will have substantially more room for cargo in the Chevy Trax.

  • Technology

    Screen Size and Connectivity

    Finally, let's look at technology. Modern drivers demand a lot from their vehicle's technology systems. So, how do these two vehicles compare? The Chevy Trax shines again for several reasons, starting with the available 11-inch touchscreen. While both the Chevy Trax and Hyundai Venue start with standard 8-inch touchscreens, that is the only option available on the Venue. Meanwhile, the Trax offers the larger 11-inch option. Many drivers today like larger graphics for their turn-by-turn directions because it makes it easier to see the next instructions at a quick glance.

    Both vehicles offer wireless connectivity, so you can easily connect your Apple or Android device to the touchscreen and control your favorite apps, such as music streaming platforms and navigation apps. If you want the option to leave your USB cord at home, wireless smartphone charging is available on either vehicle as well.

    Other Features the Trax Offers

    Now let's touch on some other things that the Chevy Trax has that the Hyundai Venue simply does not offer. A big one has to be OnStar Connected services, which is standard for all trims of the Chevy Trax. It provides you with essential on-demand assistance after an accident and can greatly improve peace of mind on the road. If you get peace of mind from silence, you will once again prefer the Chevy Trax thanks to its standard Active Noise Cancellation on all trims. This system works to monitor in-cabin sound and emit noise-canceling frequencies to create a quiet environment.

    We will also mention that Chevy Trax has Teen Driver technology. This very helpful technology allows you to encourage your teen driver to be safer. You can control things like speed limits, volume limitations, and perimeter boundaries. Plus, you can check the built-in report card to see stats like how often your teen exceeded the speed limit or how many times the automatic emergency brakes took over.
