For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Outlander Sport has standard 18-inch wheels. Smaller 15-inch wheels are standard on the Venue. The Venue’s largest wheels are only 17-inches.

The Outlander Sport Auto offers a remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The Venue doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The Outlander Sport’s driver’s power window opens or closes with one touch of the window control, making it more convenient at drive-up windows and toll booths. The Venue’s standard driver’s power window switch has to be held the entire time to close it fully.

The Outlander Sport ES/SP’s standard variable intermittent wipers have an adjustable delay to allow the driver to choose a setting that best clears the windshield during light rain or mist. The Venue’s fixed intermittent wipers only have one fixed delay setting, so the driver will have to manually switch them between slow and intermittent. The Outlander Sport SE/GT’s standard wipers adjust their speed and turn on and off automatically according to the amount of rainfall on the windshield.

While driving with high beams on, sensitive light sensors standard on the Outlander Sport SE/GT detect other vehicles which could be blinded and automatically switch to low beams. The Venue doesn’t offer automatic dimming high beams.

The Outlander Sport’s standard outside mirrors include heating elements to clear off the mirrors for better visibility. Hyundai offers heated mirrors for extra charge, but only on the Venue SEL.
