#252 2020 Hyundai Venue Test Results; Buying a Car During the Coronavirus Pandemic

published 4 months ago by Consumer Reports

We finished testing on the 2020 Hyundai Venue and discuss our test results, and which car category this compact people mover slots into. We talk about how the car purchasing experience has changed during these strange times, and share some of the options that we've encountered buying a car while social distancing. We also answer audience questions about the accuracy of the EPA estimated fuel economy numbers, why some electric vehicles have an additional 12 volt car battery, and whether or not tires are government regulated.     ----------------------------------- Have a question for our experts?
