The vehicle’s monitors warn you when things get too close through visual and audio alerts. It also scans the road ahead of you for possible dangers—if you miss the warning, it brakes automatically. A lane-keeping assistant helps you stay in your lane by controlling the steering wheel for you if you find that you’re slipping out of your lane.
While there might be rival models on the market that can better suit your fuel efficiency needs, the 2022 Hyundai Tuscon Hybrid Langley makes a solid case for itself as a multi-purpose vehicle that can be used for family commutes, moving cargo and travelling through difficult landscapes. Depending on your individual needs, this could be the perfect option for you.
