Hyundai Cars With AWD

March 4th, 2022 by

When shopping for a new vehicle, one feature that a lot of people look for is all-wheel drive. This is especially true for New Jersey drivers who often have to deal with bad weather or who may want to take their vehicle through one of Jersey’s many outdoor spaces. If you’re interested in getting an AWD vehicle, there are plenty of Hyundai options to consider. Below, we’ll highlight some of the reasons that you might want to consider an AWD vehicle, along with the Hyundai vehicles that you can get with AWD.

Benefits of AWD

In an all-wheel-drive system, the vehicle sends torque to all four wheels. This makes it easier for the tires to move around on unstable road surfaces since the tires are better able to grip the ground. This applies whether you’re driving through New Jersey’s latest snowstorm or taking your vehicle off-road. In addition, when the vehicle can grip the road better, it’s easier for it to accelerate, which means the vehicle will have an easier time going up hills or getting through difficult spots. 

2022 Hyundai Kona

The Hyundai Kona is a small SUV. This makes it a great option for people who want a little more space than your typical sedan, along with the improved terrain performance, without upgrading to something much larger. The 2022 Kona comes with a 147 horsepower engine, but you can also upgrade to a 175 horsepower engine.

On the inside, the Kona offers plenty of features for drivers. This starts with comfortable seats, continues with a decent amount of storage space in the rear, and finishes with an advanced infotainment system. The infotainment system can come as either a 7-inch or 8-inch touchscreen that easily connects to both Apple and Android devices. Finally, there are plenty of safety features with the Kona, including automated emergency braking, driver-attention monitors, and lane-keeping warnings.

2022 Hyundai Tucson

For a slightly larger and more powerful SUV, consider going with the 2022 Hyundai Tucson. Inside the Hyundai Tucson, the base engine provides 187 horsepower, but there is also a 227 horsepower model available. With the Tucson, you can expect to get around 26 mpg in the city and 33 on the highway, which is pretty good for an SUV of its size.

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson also provides plenty of interior comforts. There’s an easy-to-use infotainment center, plenty of safety features, comfortable seats, adaptive cruise control and comfortable cloth upholstery. When you combine all of these features with the AWD system, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson is a great all-around SUV that’s up for just about anything.

2022 Hyundai Santa Fe

The next size up from the Tucson is the Hyundai Santa Fe. This is a great option to consider if you’re looking for an affordable SUV that comes with plenty of interior space and respectable performance specs. To start, the Santa Fe can come with one of three engine options. The standard option is a 191 horsepower engine, with the option to upgrade to a 2.5-liter engine that produces 277 horsepower. If you decide to go with the hybrid version of the Santa Fe, you’ll get a motor that produces 226 horsepower.

Once you get inside the Santa Fe, the first thing you’ll notice is the attractive cabin design. Some of the features that contribute to this are the digital gauge cluster, the heads-up display, the ventilated front seats, and the heated rear seats. As with the other models, the Santa Fe comes with an infotainment center and you can get either an 8-inch or 10.3-inch screen, both of which easily connect to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

2022 Hyundai Palisade

Finally, there’s the 2022 Hyundai Palisade. This is the largest option available, with its three rows of seats and large cargo area. The Palisade is also the most powerful option on this list, as its standard engine produces 291 horsepower. With this setup, you can also tow up to 5,000 pounds, making the Palisade a great option if you are into outdoor activities such as camping or fishing. In terms of fuel efficiency, expect to get around 19 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway when you get the AWD model.

The Palisade comes with some great interior features to match its strong performance specs. For starters, you can fold down the rear seats to greatly extend your cargo space area. In the front of the vehicle, you can get features such as a large 10.3-inch touchscreen, SiriusXM radio, seven USB ports, and Hyundai’s Blue Link app service, which allows you to remotely control parts of your vehicle. If you want a vehicle that can handle just about any terrain while providing you with plenty of interior space, the 2022 Hyundai Palisade is a great option to consider.

Which Hyundai Vehicle is Right for You?

As you can see, there are plenty of options available if you want a Hyundai vehicle with AWD. You don’t have to settle for something that’s too large or too small for your needs, as Hyundai has AWD vehicles in all different sizes. Therefore, it’s just a matter of deciding which vehicle is right for you.

For example, maybe you want something small and that’s great on gas. In that case, you might prefer something like the Kona. On the other hand, if you want something powerful that you can take off-road with ease and that has plenty of space for extra passengers and luggage, then the Palisade is probably a better choice. For something in the middle, the Tucson and Santa Fe are both great options.
