2022 Hyundai Tucson | Toronto, ON

U.S. News & World Report has released its annual “Best Cars for the Money” list and a remarkable five Hyundai vehicles were named winners, which was the most wins for any brand. To create this list, U.S. News gathers credible reviews from the automotive press and ranks each vehicle on its driving, interior comfort, and technology features.

Best 2-Row SUV for the Money: Hyundai Santa Fe

To start, the 2022 Santa Fe is packed with the extensive suite of Hyundai SmartSense™ safety features. The interior is stylish and spacious, offering more than 2,000 litres of space to utilize behind the front-row seats. All models are equipped with HTRAC™ All-Wheel Drive with multi-terrain control modes for ultimate stability behind the wheel.

Best Compact SUV for the Money: Hyundai Tucson

A smaller SUV option arrives in the form of the 2022 Tucson. This compact vehicle can be filled with a variety of available advanced technologies, like a high-definition 10.25-inch touch screen with navigation, a Bose® premium sound system, and Remote Smart Parking Assist. Notable standard features include heated front seats as well as Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™.

Best Hybrid and Electric Car for the Money: Hyundai Elantra Hybrid

Hyundai is one of the few remaining brands that offers a sedan lineup, and one of the standout options is the 2022 Elantra Hybrid. Once you’re done staring at its stylish exterior, you’ll find top-level interior features as standard. This includes wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, a hands-free smart trunk, and a long list of innovative driver-assist safety systems.

Best Hybrid and Electric SUV for the Money: Hyundai Tucson Hybrid

For an efficient SUV option, consider the 2022 Tucson Hybrid. Open up the back to use 1,097 litres of cargo space or put the remote-folding rear seats down to see what you can fit into the 2,108 litres of total available space. As spacious as it is, the Tucson Hybrid is also advanced. The button-type shift-by-wire replaces the traditional gear shifter and the system features paddle shifters behind the steering wheel for a sporty feel.

Best Subcompact SUV for the Money: Hyundai Kona

But if you’re looking for an even sportier drive, turn to the 2022 Kona. With a redesigned exterior that is bolder than ever, the Kona is sure to turn heads no matter where you’re going.

Tucson, IONIQ 5 Join Spider-Man on the Big Screen

2021 Hyundai IONIQ | Toronto, ON

Did you know that a recent superhero film included cameos from two Hyundai vehicles? The all-new IONIQ 5 and all-new Tucson both made brief appearances in “Spider-Man: No Way Home” as part of an exciting partnership between Sony Pictures and Hyundai.

Leading up to the film’s release last December, a pair of commercials aired online and on televisions globally. The long-form “Only Way Home” commercial stars Tom Holland as a stranded Peter Parker after the events of the previous film. As he’s suited up as Spider-Man and walking along a deserted highway, his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon) pulls up in the all-electric IONIQ 5 to take Peter back to New York City to face his fate.

The second commercial includes actual clips from “No Way Home,” with Peter standing atop the new Tucson as he prepares to face a villain. Additional footage of the Tucson zooming through city streets accompanies the film scenes, with a disclaimer unfortunately stating that web shooters are not included with the sporty SUV.

This isn’t the first time Hyundai vehicles have partnered with superheroes — and it won’t be the last. A custom Hyundai Veloster appeared in “Ant-Man and the Wasp” as Ant-Man’s getaway vehicle. Hyundai also has campaigns for the new “Uncharted” film as well as the upcoming “Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse (Part One),” set to debut in October.

Our team at Downtown Hyundai in Toronto, Ontario, is always excited to see Hyundai vehicles getting in the spotlight of major motion pictures. Come visit us to drive your own movie star of a vehicle home today.

All-New 2022 Hyundai Tucson Makes Its Debut

2022 Hyundai Tucson | Toronto, ON

Hyundai is raising the bar in the compact SUV segment. The carmaker just introduced the newly redesigned 2022 Hyundai Tucson, complete with a cutting-edge look, class-leading technologies, and better performance and efficiency.

For the 2022 model year, the Tucson boasts the brand’s evolving Sensuous Sportiness design language. It uses sculpted lines and muscular stance to create a svelte, sophisticated silhouette that hints at the future. Seven exterior colour options are available for this new model, including White Cream, Phantom Black, Shimmering Silver, Nocturne Gray, Amazon Gray, Flame Red, and Intense Blue.

Inside, ambient lighting helps create an atmosphere that suits your mood, using up to 64 colours and 10 levels of brightness. The cabin also features a dual 10.25-inch touch screen. Its second-row seats fold down to create a flat load floor for your cargo.

Hyundai has also strived to give you a more digital ownership experience with the 2022 Tucson. For instance, you can turn your smartphone into a smart key to lock and unlock your Tucson. You can even start the engine and climate control system with your phone from up to 90 feet away.

The 2022 Tucson’s powertrain options include a 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine, along with hybrid and plug-in hybrid models.

According to Hyundai, the 2022 Tucson will go on sale during the first half of 2021. And once it’s available, you can test-drive the new Tucson right here at Downtown Hyundai in Toronto.
