In a world where new electric vehicles dominate headlines, 

there's still a place for frugal hybrid vehicles for

buyers who aren't quite ready to make the EV leap. Of the ones we've sampled recently, the

2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid jumps off the page as possibly the best overall option.

In fact, we'd go so far to say the Tuscon is now the vehicle to beat in the highly-competitive compact

crossover segment that also includes the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, and Toyota RAV4.
