Car buyers these days are just as concerned with a vehicle’s technology and entertainment features as they are its safety rating or fuel economy. Accordingly, when looking at the 2020 Hyundai Venue, a question that many people ask involves whether or not it comes with Apple CarPlay. In case you too were wondering, yes, the Venue does indeed come with CarPlay, along with a whole host of other exciting features.
About Apple CarPlay
What is it about Apple CarPlay that makes it so desirable? For one, it allows you to safely use your iPhone while driving. For example, you can make hands-free calls, listen to voice messages, or return missed phone calls without ever touching your smartphone.
Although a primary benefit is communication, Apple CarPlay gives you more than just hands-free talking. In fact, Apple has dubbed it “the ultimate copilot” because it also provides navigation, maps, a calendar, and even access to your favorite music.
Apple CarPlay uses Siri voice control technology, which will allow you to access all of its features hands-free. In addition, the CarPlay apps are specially designed for mobile use so that you never have to take your eyes off of the road. However, your passengers can also operate CarPlay through the touchscreen or even your vehicle’s own controls.
Other technological features in the Hyundai Venue
Apple CarPlay may be one of the most sought-after features offered on the 2020 Hyundai Venture, but it is by far not the only one. Hyundai has branded the all-new Venue as a vehicle for the “urban adventurer“, with “fast-moving tech that keeps up with you.”
Aside from Apple CarPlay a few of these technological features include dual USB ports, Blue Link® connected car service, and an eight-inch color touchscreen.
The Hyundai Venue’s safety features
A few of those features include Forward Collision Avoidance assist with Pedestrian Detection (PED), Blind Spot Collision Warning (BCW), Rear Cross Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW), and Lane Keeping Assist (LKA).
With the Driver Attention Warning (DAW) system, you will never have to worry about being too distracted by Apple CarPlay or any of the Venue’s other options. This feature monitors your driving patterns to determine when you might be drowsy or distracted. It will then sound an alert as well as a warning message on the instrument panel to help you quickly get back on track again.
Interior style and design
Hyundai has packed all these features into a stylish interior, which includes solid black panels trimmed in leather and chrome accents. The well-designed instrument cluster makes it easy to view things at a glance, while the digital heating and A/C controls will allow you to quickly control the temperature.
Just because you are driving around town does not mean you will not want to enjoy some fresh air and sunshine. Accordingly, the 2020 Venue is equipped with a power sunroof that you can quickly operate with just the touch of a button.
Hyundai claims that the 2020 Venue “takes to the streets like a boss, getting you from meetings to meet-ups with confidence and ease.” Indeed, with features such as its 60/40 split-folding seats to the easy-to-lift hatchback, loading, unloading, and hauling cargo will be a breeze.
Loaded with features
The inaugural Hyundai Venue is now at dealerships across the country. If you are looking for an affordable subcompact crossover that is cheap yet loaded with the latest technological features, you may want to give this vehicle a test drive.
