Accent: The subcompact sedan will return for 2022 with minimal changes. When Hyundai rolled out the entry-level Venue subcompact crossover in 2019, the automaker said it would continue to sell the Accent as long as there is demand. Given that the current-generation Accent is at the end of its life cycle, it's likely to be discontinued in the second half of 2022. For the coming model year, a manual transmission will no longer be an option.
Veloster: The funky hatchback, with one door on the driver's side and two on the passenger side, is being discontinued for the 2022 model year, except for the track-ready N variant. Hyundai will sell a Kona N subcompact crossover this year with similar performance. That could end Veloster production entirely in 2022, since the Kona is a top seller for the brand.
Elantra: Redesigned for the 2021 model with a hybrid version for the first time, the Elantra carries over for 2022 with no major changes, with one exception: A track-ready N performance variant will go on sale in the fall. A freshen of the compact sedan is likely in 2023 and a new generation in 2025.
Ioniq hatchback: The compact Ioniq hybrid carries over for the 2022 model year, as does the plug-in hybrid. The EV version is discontinued after the 2021 model year. The Ioniq EV was Hyundai's first electric vehicle when it arrived to a limited number of U.S. states for the 2017 model year. Given that Hyundai is creating a subbrand around the Ioniq name, the remaining versions of the hatchback are likely to be phased out in 2022.
Sonata: Redesigned for the 2020 model in gasoline and hybrid form, the midsize sedan carries over for the 2022 model with minor shifting of equipment on some trim levels. The N Line sport package adds a night edition with unique wheels, badging and spoiler. The Glowing Yellow paint option is dropped for the sporty trim. A freshen is likely in 2022 and a redesign in 2024.
Venue: The smallest and least expensive of Hyundai's crossovers carries over for the 2022 model year with some minor trim adjustments. The Venue was new for the 2020 model year and is seen as a replacement for the Accent sedan in the near future. A freshen should come in the second half of 2022 for the Venue when the Accent is likely to be discontinued.
