Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Venue offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Nissan Kicks. The Nissan Kicks will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Venue.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Hyundai Venue as you will with the Nissan Kicks, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Hyundai Venue will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Kicks. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. Both the Hyundai Venue and the Nissan Kicks have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Venue is about the same width as the Nissan Kicks. If you go with the Hyundai Venue, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Kicks.

Handling
The Hyundai Venue has a smaller turning radius than the Nissan Kicks, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Hyundai Venue and the Nissan Kicks.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the Hyundai Venue and the Nissan Kicks are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Hyundai Venue and the Nissan Kicks. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries in the Hyundai Venue as you will in the Nissan Kicks.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Venue than that of the Nissan Kicks.
