Hyundai Venue's electric folding rearview mirror is available

One remarkable point about the Stonic EX, which the Hyundai Venue does not have, is the cruise control system. Nonetheless, Venue's electric folding rearview mirror is available, but it does not exist on the Kia crossover.

You could easily change both cars' drivers' seats. The power start button, 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, USB port, and 12-volt accessory socket are available on both items.

Hyundai Venue Vs Kia Stonic: Performance & Engine

With a 1.6-liter inline 4-cylinder petrol engine using an automatic 6-speed torque converter type transmission, the Venue GL can produce 151 Nm of torque and 121 hp of maximum power.

On the other side, the Kia is fitted with a six-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) and a four-cylinder, 1.4-liter inline petrol engine that can generate 132 Nm torque and up to 97 hp of power.

Based on these capacity parameters, it’s possible to conclude that the Stonic is about 100 kg lighter than the Venue, but the Stonic is not as strong as the Venue.
