If the high-end interior and the 3 rows of seats of the Grand Cherokee L are not enough for you, the manufacturer has thought of you: here is the 2022 Jeep Wagoneer !

Kia Carnival 2022
Having taken the place vacated by the defunct Kia Sedona , the 2022 Kia Carnival is a minivan that can accommodate 7 or 8 occupants and whose design is closer to SUVs than traditional “minivans”.
Its 290-hp 3.5-litre V6 allows it to tow up to 1,588 kg, or 3,500 pounds; despite everything, the Carnival remains fuel efficient, with city highway ratings as low as 12.0/8.9 L/100 km.
2022 Kia Sportage
Still just as popular due to its dynamic silhouette and its remarkable value for money, the 2022 Kia Sportage is back with, under its hood, the same engines as the outgoing model and whose power varies between 181 and 237 horsepower.
The Sportage ‘s user-friendly interior , its long list of equipment as well as its affordable price will certainly make it a model appreciated by buyers, once again!

Kia Seltos 2022
New sub-compact SUV available since last year, the Seltos seduces with its bold and sporty look! It also offers 2 engines, namely a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder 146 horsepower or a powerful 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbo that generates 175 horsepower. Enough to make the competition green with envy!
In addition, the 2022 Kia Seltos is very spacious, with a cargo volume varying between 792 and 1778 liters depending on whether or not the rear seat is folded down; FYI, it’s more than some larger models!
2022 Nissan Pathfinder
Often imitated, never equaled. The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder offers a major novelty for this new model year, with the addition of an interior seat, which increases its capacity to 8 occupants, depending on the model selected. In addition, you will be entitled to a generous cargo volume of 2280 liters behind the first row of seats.
Under its hood, the Pathfinder hides a 284-hp 3.5-litre V6, mated to an all-new 9-speed automatic transmission; the old CVT box, meanwhile, is not back in the catalog for 2022 .
2022 Nissan Rogue
Few details have leaked so far regarding the 2022 Nissan Rogue . However, remember that it was redesigned in 2021 and its power, which was 170 horsepower, increased to 181 horsepower; its towing capacity is also up, at 1,350 pounds.
In addition, the Rogue offers a practical and comfortable interior as well as an even more dynamic ride, as well as a generous cargo volume varying between 1028 and 2098 litres, once the rear seats are folded down.
Mazda CX-5 2022
One of the best-selling SUVs in Quebec may have new features to offer in the coming months! Thus, many rumors suggest that the 2022 Mazda CX-5 could be equipped with a 6-cylinder in-line engine with greater energy efficiency than current 4-cylinder engines (187 and 250 horsepower).
This efficiency would be made possible by a shortening of the stroke of the pistons, which would decrease the revolutions of the engine. In addition, this in-line engine would facilitate the addition of hybrid components. To be continued over the next few weeks!
