Hyundai Tucson Named Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year | Toronto, ON

There are so many reasons to love the Hyundai Tucson, and the Automobile Journalists Association of Canada agrees. The 2022 Tucson was recently named the Canadian Utility Vehicle of the Year by the AJAC and it’s quite significant for the Hyundai brand.

“This award is exceptionally meaningful for us, because the new Tucson represents Hyundai’s full-spectrum eco-powertrain approach – offering internal combustion, hybrid and plug-in hybrid models in a high-volume compact SUV. With all-wheel-drive capability; hybrid and plug-in hybrid options; customers no longer need to choose between all-road, all-weather capability and outstanding efficiency,” said Don Romano, President and CEO of Hyundai Auto Canada.

The Tucson was praised by the AJAC for its overall value, quiet and well-styled interior, and its advanced safety features. In addition to the Tucson being recognized by the AJAC, the all-new Hyundai Santa Cruz was named the 2022 Best Small Pick-Up Truck in Canada. The AJAC jury noted that the boldly designed Hyundai truck featured incredible vehicle dynamics and great powertrain performance.

Steve Flamand, director of product corporate strategy at Hyundai Auto Canada said, “Hyundai took a bold step in new segment territory with Santa Cruz, with the intention of satisfying a combination of needs for customers, namely those looking for the capability of a truck, but the efficiency and versatility of an SUV.”
