Hyundai's Venue named a 2020 Wards 10 Best Interiors winner

The Hyundai Venue was named a 2020 Wards 10 Best Interiors winner in the US recently for its creative and expressive interior design.

The Venue provides an interior personality with purposeful design selections including standout denim-inspired leatherette and fabric seats featuring an all-blue interior option. The Venue was selected from a field of 32 vehicle nominees with new or significantly redesigned interiors. Vehicles were evaluated by eight Wards editors in Southfield, MI, and scored on aesthetics, comfort, fit-and-finish, material quality and ergonomics. While affordability is a consideration, there is no price cap for entries. Venue is built in Ulsan, Korea and is on sale at Hyundai New Zealand dealerships across the country.

“For Venue, we wanted to create an interior with a distinct personality by colour matching and details not typically seen in this segment,” said Simon Loasby, head of Hyundai Styling Group, Hyundai Design Centre, Hyundai Motor Group. “The Wards 10 Best Interiors recognition confirms our playful use of colours and materials and has made Venue a standout among tough competition.”

“The Hyundai Venue checks all our boxes for what makes a great interior: premium materials, excellent fit-and-finish and comfort, first-rate ergonomics and a user-friendly infotainment system,” said Tom Murphy, WardsAuto managing editor.

Galleries and profiles on the winners are posting to through June 24. The awards ceremony will be in conjunction with the upcoming virtual WardsAuto Interior Conference and TU Automotive Detroit and ADAS/Autonomous industry summit on August 18-20.
