Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Model Preview

Hyundai is bringing back the NEXO Fuel Cell for the 2022 model year, and it hasn’t seen any major changes from last year’s model. Unfortunately for interested customers elsewhere, the NEXO is currently only sold at select dealerships in California. For customers who do want to go ahead and buy one, Hyundai guarantees the NEXO for 10 years or 100,000 miles.

The NEXO comes in two trims, the Blue and the Limited, with a starting MSRP of $60,680 including destination. As it is a zero-emissions car, consumers can save up to $4,500 from a California Clean Vehicle Rebate, as well as money from any other local or state incentives that may also apply.

This flagship SUV is the brand's first dedicated hydrogen-powered vehicle. Paired with a lithium-ion polymer battery system, it gives 161 horsepower and an EPA-estimated range of 380 miles. Refueling can take as little as five minutes, as Hyundai claims that filling up the tank at hydrogen fueling stations is as easy as pumping gas. To sweeten the idea further, Hyundai also offers NEXO Cards that are worth up to $15,000 and can be used similarly to debit cards at the hydrogen fueling stations for up to six years. The caveat here is that this card comes with either a purchase of a 2022 NEXO or having had a lease for one for at least three years.

Hyundai NEXO

Owning a fuel cell SUV isn’t the only reason people may want this vehicle, as Hyundai has given the NEXO a 10.25-inch digital cluster and a 12.3-inch touchscreen with navigation, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, heated front seats and steering wheel, two USB ports, wireless device charging, automatic temperature control, power tilt-and-slide sunroof, and Bluelink Connected Car system. There is also a 440-watt Krell Premium Audio system which has eight speakers and an eight-channel external amp. The seats are made from bio-based leatherette, with the power lumbar support, an eight-way adjustable driver and passenger seats, and rear seats that can fold 60/40 for extra cargo space.

Safety wasn’t overlooked in this SUV, as the NEXO is equipped with blindspot collision avoidance assist, forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot and surround-view monitor, auto defogger, smart cruise control, keyless entry, and rear and side window defroster. Premium remote parking assist is also available, and by using the Smart Key button, the NEXO has the ability to park itself either in a perpendicular or parallel space by using 360-degree sensors. This can be done whether the driver is in the car or not. Key fob controls can also be used to remotely move the vehicle backward or forward.

Since this is the only hydrogen-powered SUV on the market, and since it is only sold in California, finding true competition for it is very slim. Some vehicles that may come close however could include the likes of the Toyota Mirai sedan and Tesla Model Y crossover.
