Compact crossover SUVs are the highest demand in the current market of the automobile products across the globe. This scenario is prevailing since the last few years, which compelled the leading auto making brands like Hyundai to make more of such vehicles, than the traditional compact cars.
The year 2022 proves this fact much forcefully, and we can witness the same, if we take a closer look at the current year lineup of Hyundai, that has a handful of compact crossover models to present, among which we found the Tucson and the Venue to be the best of all. We took test drives with both at our most friendly place, the Willow Grove Hyundai dealer, and all we want now is to share our experience with you, to explain why we call these models to be the best in the Hyundai lineup of the year 2022.
2022 Hyundai Tucson
The all-new 2022 model year edition of the Hyundai Tucson crossover lineup now has four trims to offer. They are the SE, SEL, N Line, and Limited that replaced the earlier Value, Sport, and Ultimate trims. But that’s not all.
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson lineup also has a new 2.5L inline-4 engine to surprise its buyers and worldwide supporters. It is now the new standard engine that churns out 187 hp and 178 lb-ft. of torque after clubbing with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. It is a replacement engine to the earlier 2.0L inline-4 engine that could produce only 161-hp. The standard powertrain also sets up front wheel drive for all, but surely Hyundai allows you to drive its 2022 Tucson with all four wheels.
2022 Hyundai Venue
Hyundai has released the 2022 model year edition of its flagship compact crossover model Venue as an SUV, where a boxy hatchback figure welcomes five-passengers into its comfortably laid out cabin.
Buying a 2022 Hyundai Venue will not allow you the option to go for an all-wheel drive but there will be other ways to find out the reasons, why we chose the 2022 Venue as one of the best Hyundai crossover models this year.
It starts with the humble lineup that consists of the SE, SEL, and Limited trim models, offering layers of advantages in their nicely styled cabins, while the one who handles the steering will get to enjoy some proud cornering moments while taking a sharp U-turn in the hilly roads.For the year 2022, we see some changes in the Hyundai Venue lineup where the popular Denim trim version gets a new name as Limited and the Premium feature Package is not seen any longer. On the contrary, its power sunroof now come as a standard feature on the SEL and Limited trim models. Sculpted on good quality sheet-metal the looks of the new 2022 Hyundai Venue models has gone more urban, while its standard 1.6-liter inline-4 engine drives this compact crossover through the different terrains with equal expertise while raising 121 hp and 113 lb-ft of torque, when mated to a CVT which is also set as the standard gearbox for this year, confirmed the staff who attended us at the Willow Grove Hyundai dealership.
