2022 is just a year away now, and the new designs for some cars and SUVs have already been released! For high-end car lovers and connoisseurs who want to get a first handle on the market, continue reading to learn about the cars that are getting redesigned.
5. Honda Civic
Have a first look at this brand new Honda Civic for 2022 and feast your eyes! The 11th generation model is only an inch longer than its predecessors but appears lower, with a sleek, elegant appearance. The same excellent architecture of its 10th generation is assured, and it should perform just as effectively.
Interior and Safety
The interior of the 2022 model is simple, clean and straight lines in the cockpit. It feels less fussy but comes with a 9-inch touchscreen and a digital dashboard. It’s Honda Civic Safety Technology has the Honda Sensing as its standard across the trim levels.
The Honda Sensing provides features such as mitigation against collision, lane departure warnings, and adaptive cruise control. The cost is expected to start at about $22,000.
4. The Toyota 86
This model is 2nd generation Toyota 86. Although it’s a new model, the expectation is that it will be like its predecessor’s version, following the rear-wheel-drive formula. The BRZ development is also in conjunction with the Subaru BRZ.
The new Toyota 86 will be powered horizontally by a four-cylinder engine and could be a standard six-speed manual transmission. There is nothing about features and pricing as yet. We hope they will give this model a turbocharge flat-four, like that of the Subaru Ascent SUV, for more speed!
Comfort and Interior
A peek preview from Spy Photo shows us that the 86 will still have its regular size. The Subaru BRZ and the 86 are the only two cars that offer seating for four, making them unique for 2022!
Driver’s Assistance Safety and Features are not yet available, but it is expected that Toyota will provide the standard safety technology to the 86 equipment for 2022.
3. Kia Sedona Mini-Van
Now dubbed the Carnival and Grand Utility Vehicle, the redesigned Sedona sports a boxy SUV style, including a large chrome C-pillar. It is way more attractive than the present model and gives an upscale vibe with its large wheels, floating roof and daytime running lights!
The wheelbase for this model is longer, and it sports a shorter front overhang. There are more utility and cabin space because of the greater distance between axles. As Kia departs from the traditional mini-van look, the updated version features an A-pillar shifted rearward to give a more pronounced and longer hood.
We will know more as it gets closer to the sale date, but it is expected that the vehicle will sport a front-wheel drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission!
2. Hyundai Tucson
This brand new car adopts the SUV styling, connectivity and technology, which is a huge jump from where it once was! The front sheet metal is bold, dramatic and angular.
The Hyundai still has its high priority values, despite its new technology and innovations. The bold looking vehicle sports a fresh attitude and superb features. It becomes a rival for those leaders, like the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and the Toyota RAV-4.
Interior and Mileage
The interior boasts simplicity and elegance and is the most connected Hyundai to date! For the first time, the Hyundai Tucson will be available with a gas choice of hybrid or plug-in hybrid powertrains.
Hyundai reveals that the base Tucson returns an estimated 28 mpg in a highway and city driving blend. The plug-n model will deliver up to 28 miles of electric-only driving time. Prices are not yet available, but Kelly Blue Book expects it to start at $25,000 and top out around $40,000.
1. Subaru BRZ
The Subaru BRZ launched in 2013 and has just received its first upgrade and redesign! Being the second generation 2022 BRZ, it’s a “2+2,” like its 1st generation model, having two small rear seats. These can fold back to create cargo space, making it still a practical vehicle.
An excessive amount of work has gone into upgrading this vehicle and improving its chassis. It will deliver a fast-paced, rewarding drive on a winding, twisting road. Its structure is 50% stiffer than the old version.
The McPherson struts and multilink rear suspension system allows the driver to feel more connected to the road. The steering is more responsive because of the 60% more rigidity in the front structure.
Stability and Control
Car control is vital for fast cars such as the BRZ. The BRZs control system is more highly advanced than before and is in line with other performance cars that cost more. There are now five settings, which include a Track mode.
Some other vehicles in the BRZs competitive line pack way more power, but this Subaru model is lighter and smaller and gives a more distinct and refined driving experience. The BRZ goes on sale in October 2021, with a starting cost of about $30,000.
We close off here for now with a bird’s eye view of the 2022 remodeled cars to whet your appetite! The range of redesigned vehicles for 2022 is so vast it’s an exciting time for car shoppers. More updated information is emerging every day, so keep an eye out!
