The Discontinued Cars of 2022

Notable cars from the likes of Volkswagen, Toyota and Honda will be discontinued in 2022. Is your vehicle one of them?

discontinued cars

With unprecedentedly low inventory and global manufacturing problems, it might seem like an inopportune time to send vehicles off into the abyss. But death waits for no man — or machine. As such, the list of discontinued cars will continue to grow in 2022.

Last year, automakers said goodbye to more than 20 different vehicle models. We won’t see quite as many sail into the sunset this go round, but there are still a number of notable cars that have met their demise. Many of them share similar qualities, most notably being small and gas-powered, two vehicle traits growing less popular by the day.

Discontinued cars

Honda Clarity

The Honda Clarity is unique amongst its now-deceased counterparts in that it’s not gas-powered. First introduced in 2015, the Clarity’s all-electric model was discontinued in 2020 and now the hybrid and hydrogen fuel cell versions are getting the axe as well.

Ironically, Honda announced earlier this year its plan to sell only electric and fuel-cell vehicles by 2040. The Clarity is the marque’s only current offering to fit that bill. Ridding the sedan from its lineup, however, allows the Japanese automaker to focus on developing its future models, such as the Prologue, which will be Honda’s first fully electric SUV when it arrives in 2024.

Discontinued Cars

Hyundai Veloster

A quick look at the best-selling cars of the year proves, yet again, American prefer larger vehicles. The quirky Veloster had its strong points but, ultimately, the three-door hatchback was too unique, and perhaps too compact, for its own good. Saying goodbye to one of its least popular vehicles gives Hyundai opportunity to focus on its far more likeable models, such as the Kona and Tucson.

All is not lost for Veloster aficionados. The hatchback’s high-performance Veloster N model will live on, at least for now.

Discontinued cars

Mazda CX-3 and 6

When Mazda unveiled the CX-30 in 2020, it was only a matter of time before the smaller CX-3 crossover was added to the list of discontinued cars. And alas, 2022 will mark the end of the road for the subcompact vehicle. The CX-3 was simply too small to satisfy American’s taste for larger models. One package model offered even less cargo space than Mazda’s smallest sedan.

Speaking of sedans, the Japanese automaker’s midsize Mazda 6 is also disappearing in 2022. It’s somewhat of a surprise, considering the car was routinely ranked as one of the top options in its segment. This has led many to speculate the Mazda 6 is simply taking a year off and will return new-and-improved at later date. Unlike many of its competitors, a hybrid version of the car was never made available, something that could change in the future.

Discontinued Cars

Toyota Land Cruiser

A year after saying goodbye to one of its smaller vehicles, the Yaris, Toyota is bidding adieu to one of its largest. The Land Cruiser was the Japanese car maker’s longest-running model, but that streak will come to an end in 2022. The SUV has long been a capable vehicle but failed to evolve with its modern competitors, resulting in declining sales.

News of the vehicle’s demise, interestingly enough, brought an unexpected jolt to those sales numbers. In January, just a month after Toyota announced the SUV’s discontinuance, more Land Cruisers were sold than in any month in the last 10 years, according to Car and Driver Magazine. A newly designed Land Cruiser will be sold to the rest of the world — just not in the U.S.

Discontinued Cars

Volkswagen Passat

The Passat often found itself buried in the shadows of other models in its own Volkswagen family, such as the Jetta, as well as those in its midsize sedan segment, like the Honda Accord and Hyundai Sonata. As such, the German automaker is pulling the plug on the Passat to focus more on electric vehicles. The Chattanooga, Tennessee, plant where the Passat was manufactured will transition to making VW’s ID.4 crossover EV.

As a sendoff, VW is offering a Passat Limited Edition model. The car features nods to its Tennessee home, including “Chattanooga 2011” seat tags, as well as aerial maps of the city and drawings of the plant on the cupholder mats.

Discontinued cars

Volvo V60 and V90

“To remain successful, we need profitable growth,” Volvo’s CEO Håkan Samuelsson said in March. “So instead of investing in a shrinking business, we choose to invest in the future – electric and online.” The proclamation came as Volvo was announcing its plans to become a fully electric car manufacturer by 2030. Just four months later news arrived that the Swedish automaker was discontinuing not one but two of its gas-powered models: the V60 and V90 wagons.

Volvo’s decision, as Samuelsson alluded to, is an acknowledgment of where automotive market is today and, more importantly, where it’s headed. Station wagons simply don’t sell anymore. Instead of investing in a “shrinking business,” the car maker will use its resources to expand its electric vehicle lineup, which currently includes just two models. Fans of the V60 and V90 shouldn’t be too distraught. Volvo is still selling the taller, crossover Cross Country models of both cars.

        “Needs” are “overlooked”? If manufacturers feel that your special needs don’t fit into their future plans or profitability, find a car that does meet your special needs. There are hundreds of cars to choose from.

      • I’ve always loved my Volvo wagons. The V60 and V90 were not going to be successful. Discontinuing the XC 70 (2016 final year) was a really dumb decision. It’s perfect for my big dogs and cargo. But it will last for years. The XC 60, 90 are not as reliable. And only the XC 60 is made in Sweden now.

  • I bought a 2016 Journey Crossroad for the wife and thoroughly enjoyed its interior and exterior styling. Given the volume these were selling at the time its surprising you gave it such a bad farewell within the recently departed group. In a growing family of two adults and four kids the Journey was well suited. The price point and available options including a nearly 300HP pentastar and six speed auto (your review stated 4 spd auto) this was a great vehicle. The Crossroad we purchased was equipped with sport suspension and 19” wheels. This thing handles!
    Looking at the 2016 specs it was competetive to higher echelon cars like the Murano and outperformed the Four Runner.

        Why does anybody think fuel prices will be lower with a different administration? Fuel prices are determined by supply and demand. At the start of the pandemic driving was at a minimum. Gasoline was not being purchased so prices were low. People are now using their cars and OPEC raises oil prices. The administration has nothing to do with this.

          I agree with Teresa, George! With the LAST administration, we were energy INDEPENDENT and gas prices were at historic lows.

    My second Honda Fit, a 2016, has over 100K miles. The last one, a 2008, went for 206K miles. Other than the normal expenses, brakes, oil changes, tune ups, tires, the only unexpected expense was a transmission sensor for $146. If 2020 is then end of the Fits I will have about 4 more years to decide on my next car, but I will miss the bullet proof reliability, and exceptional gas mileage, I have gotten from them.

    • I’m on my third Fit – just sold the first, an ’07, with 339K miles. My son has the second, a ’13, with about 180K miles. My 2018 is the baby with only 66K miles. Not sure what I’ll do when this one dies; I had planned on buying a fourth.

My first 3 Fusions were leased, and I bought the 2019 because the lease price deals were not good at all because they were not going to make no more Fusions. I also had three Ford Explorers that I leased so it was a total of nine years. I got tired of an SUV and now I love sedans!

    Glad to see the Honda Fit go! I had owned three other Honda models (one Civic and two CRV’s) prior to purchasing a Fit. Worst car I ever owned. It had absolutely no power behind it and accelerated very slowly. And winter driving was an absolute nightmare. My Fit could not even make it up a slight icy incline. This was the worst vehicle Honda produced and performed so poorly it turned me off Hondas for good. I now drive a Mazda SUV and I love it!

    It is disappointing that car manufacturers do not want to sell cars to the average person who need a car less than $17k. Especially since these are the individuals who are hit the hardest due to the COVID issues. Also for the individuals, like myself, who live in cities were parking is limited. I have been driving a Honda Fit since 2007. First living in New York and now in Boston. The Honda Fit is the perfect commuter car and can park in so many spots that other cars can not fit. Parking a SUV in the city is practically impossible. So where do individuals like me go for a car now?

    • I know! I’m buying another 10 yr old Audi Avant and rebuilding the motor, suspension, and freshening up the interior…because wagons are so much more enjoyable to drive than any SUV. It’s funny that the two people I know who have SQ5s both dropped them down 2″ to make them more enjoyable. In New Jersey we actually have a law against driving in the left hand lane while not passing, and most people follow it (except people from Mass, or Penn for some reason) so the need to sit up high is dramatically lowered.

    I’m not surprised Mazda is discontinuing the CX-3. Knowing I am a big Mazda fan (I’ve owned a 3 and its predecessors for 35 years), my friend bought a CX-3 a few years ago. I was struck by the lack of accessible storage space in the front, compared with my 2015 3 hatchback, which would keep me from buying that car. Hopefully Mazda rethought that in the CX-30, although I don’t like SUVs because, as a petite person, I have difficulty getting in and out of them. One size does not fit all.

    Our green revolution is likely two decades too late and in the rush to catch up we ignore obvious issues. Many people want small sedans to drive. Now they have to go to SUV’ and trucks? How does this help.Where will the “rare earths”materials for the batteries that are still in their infantile stages come from? What will we do with them when expired. Are the recent battery fires a harbinger of things to come. Will battery replacements be as expensive as predicted. What will we do with all the fiberglass and plastic used to lighten the load once the cars have to be recycled. The Pacific Ocean already has a a grave yard of floating plastic- it will be overwhelmed in ten years? Do we have sufficient power to provide the recharge needs of all electric cars? What will happen to all the gas station attendants and combustion engine workers ;will we have the same unemployment problem we have with coal miners? Do our training institutions have the programs to train “electric cars technicians” Let us not jump into a new set of environmental and technical problems that come without bonafide solutions. Mother earth cannot withstand another well intentioned revolution like Henry Ford’s, without a carefully laid out end game. If the new cure is worse than the old disease let us find a cure for the old disease first.

    I bought one of the first Clarity hybrids 3 1/2 years ago, trading in my new Model 3 TSLA. The Clarity is perhaps the best value (w/ the EV credits and incentives) and best cars I’ve ever owned. Two of my friends also purchased on my recommendation. It now has 70,000 miles, about 85% on electric drive, and I have no idea why Honda has discontinued the vehicle. And Honda will not say why. It was never once advertised or promoted. I also purchased on of the first Prius hybrids 12 years ago (only 11 mile EV range), but the Clarity with a 35 to 50 mile range on battery only, depending on air temp, is the best I’ve experienced.

    Very disappointed in the news that Volvo is discontinuing station wagons. My view is that this is part of the transition that Volvo has been making to high end vehicles. Their expressed concerns for the environment evidenced by switching to electric vehicles, seem laughable since they are going to still make SUV’s which get 10 MPG less than my V60 and cost much more to maintain. I am sad that my V60 will be my last Volvo as I have been driving Volvos for over 35 years.

    Sad to see so many great vehicles no longer available. Did Toyota decide not to discontinue the Avalon in 2022?

  • I searched for a SMALL ‘SUV’; a car with 4-wheel drive and clearance for safety in the North-East, a half chance of seeing over the nose of the more typical SUVs at intersections, but otherwise as small as possible.

    I was disappointed that Honda (my old brand) didn’t make anything close.
    I was disappointed that Subaru (everybody loved them) didn’t make anything close.
    I ended up with a Hyundai Kona.

    Turns out most Hyundais have a dangerous engine recall.
    They don’t make ’em like they used to, I guess.

  • Too many good vehicles have hit the chopping block lately, most of them cars. Being the owner of 2 Ford Focus STs one an ‘05 and the other a ‘17, both manuals, I lament the fact that Ford is ignoring US fans of this long running and reliable car. They prefer to only sell ridiculously expensive and many times impractical trucks and SUVs, strictly in the name of profits. Sorry Ford, I LIKE cars, I prefer the lower entry height & being able to get out without a parachute. Not to mention the better handling from a lower center of gravity and lower tendency to roll over. Guess I’ll have to look elsewhere when it comes time for the next car, as Ford has alienated an entire group of potential customers by no longer offering them here. Europe still gets cars from Ford, wonder why they’re just giving us the finger. That road goes both ways, however, and if they don’t make something I’d want, it’s the finger they’ll get back from me, not my purchasing dollars.

  • This list of discontinued vehicles is indicative of how disfunctional the auto industry is. More SUVs are being sold than any other vehicle category. These are image vehicles, NOT practical or earth-friendly. No person needs to drive a ” House on Wheels”. SUVs do NOT meet fuel efficiency, pollution, accident impact, or rollover standards of regular passenger cars. Electric vehicles are still polluting since they take energy off the electric grid which in the main is coal/gas/oil fired. And with the high price of EVs, they are still a ” play-toy ” for the ” eco-sheik” wealthy. Hybrids are interesting but hard to justify the initial cost even with long term fuel savings; plus you have to maintain gas AND electric systems. To save the earth, ironically, we should be building MORE small, fuel efficient gasoline cars to take us through to the next MAJOR change to Hydrogen Fuel Cells which will necessitate a complete infrastructure change.

    What a shame Honda stopped selling the Fit here. I saw a picture of the newly designed one in South Africa. Best looking one so far. And they call it the Jazz there. If Honda did that here, they’d probably increase sales hugely instead of dropping it.
