5 reasons to buy the 2021 Hyundai Nexo

1. Hydrogen power 

If you are looking for an alternative fuel vehicle that is a little different than the norm, check out the 2021 Hyundai Nexo. It is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell and electric motor combination routing its power through a one-speed direct drive transmission. With its three tanks full of hydrogen, that combination is good for 161 horsepower. It also has a claimed 380 miles of range in the base Blue trim and a range of 354 miles for the Limited trim.  

2. Big on tech 

The Nexo doesn't just have an impressive array of tech under the hood, it has it integrated pretty much everywhere. You can take command of all of the Nexo's settings through a combination of a 10.25-inch digital instrument display and a large 12.3-inch touchscreen, both standard. Naturally, you'll also get Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto smartphone integration, plus a wireless charging pad, navigation, and more. It also has the latest driver aids like forward collision mitigation, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert.  

3. Comfort focus 

The 2021 Nexo isn't lacking in comfort either. Even the base Blue trim level has great standard features like simulated leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Upgrade to the Limited trim and get ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, a handy hands-free liftgate, and even a sunroof. Your next road will be a comfortable endeavor in the 2021 Hyundai Nexo.  

4. SUV practicality 

The 2021 Hyundai Nexo is a compact crossover, which means it's a bit easier to park compared to a larger vehicle but also benefits from a practical SUV interior. It has seating for five across the EPA-estimated 130.9 cu-ft of interior space, which means more room for family and friends. For big shopping trips, you'll find 29.6 cu-ft of space with all seats in place and an impressive 56.5 cu-ft of space with the rear seats folded. Adventure awaits in the Hyundai Nexo.  

5. Full of standard features 

You won't have to worry about skimping on great standard features if you go with the base Blue trim level of the 2021 Nexo. It has LED headlights, power-folding, heated side mirrors, keyless entry with push-button start, 60/40-split folding rear seats, a cargo cover to protect prying eyes from your valuables, and a whole lot more. So, the 2021 Nexo might just be a great hydrogen-powered addition to your driveway.
