5 reasons to buy the 2019 Hyundai Nexo

1. The performance of an EV 

Offering an alternative to battery-powered EVs, the 2019 Hyundai Nexo uses compressed hydrogen alongside oxygen from the air to generate electricity in a fuel cell. The only output is water and the electricity to power a 161 hp motor. The hydrogen fuel cell powertrain means you have all the advantages of EV performance, like snappy acceleration and whisper-quiet driving.  

2. Good range and fast refill 

Because the 2019 Hyundai Nexo uses hydrogen instead of a battery, your time restoring lost range is more like stopping to refuel than a long recharge. Refilling the 2019 Hyundai Nexo takes about five minutes, depending on the refill station. A full hydrogen tank gets the 2019 Hyundai Nexo Blue an estimated 380 miles of range, when new. 2019 Hyundai Nexo Limited models have a lower estimated range, coming in at about 354 miles. 

3. Simple trim selection 

There isn't a long, confusing list of trims and add-on packages for the 2019 Hyundai Nexo. Instead, two trims with a set feature list make picking the 2019 Hyundai Nexo you want a breeze. Starting with the entry-level Nexo Blue, you'll get a wide selection of modern features. Automatic headlights, a 12.3-inch touchscreen, smartphone integration, wireless charging, and adaptive cruise control are standard features on the 2019 Hyundai Nexo Blue. Upgrading to the Nexo Limited trim adds a sunroof, an eight-speaker 440-w Krell® sound system, a surround-view monitor, and remote parking assist. 

4. Benefits of an SUV 

Thanks to the 2019 Hyundai Nexo's SUV styling, you've got plenty of functional interior space. There's room for up to five passengers inside, fitting comfortably into the spacious cabin. Rear passengers have 38.6 inches of legroom and 53.5 inches of shoulder room. Because the 2019 Hyundai Nexo only has a small battery, there's more space for people and luggage inside than a battery-electric vehicle might have. 

5. Made from conscious materials 

Instead of using synthetic cloth or leather, the 2019 Hyundai Nexo makes clever use of natural materials to create a luxurious and modern interior. These clever biomaterials make up the headliner, carpets, dyes, and trim inside every 2019 Hyundai Nexo. Sugarcane fibers are woven into a soft but durable carpet material while bamboo fibers are tightly woven together to make the headliner fabric. On top of this, soybeans and canola oil are used to create the dyes and colors of the interior. It's an impressive and clever use of materials.
