2022 Hyundai Tucson Review: Specs and Pricing


Hyundai Tucson

OVERVIEW


The 2022 Hyundai Tucson features a bold new look that seems set to shake up the compact SUV sector, as previewed by the Vision T concept at the 2019 LA auto show. The base Tucson is equipped with a more traditional 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine that is shared with the Sonata family sedan, but there is also a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid model available.


Both of these vehicles use a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that is assisted by an electric motor. The Tucson is one of the segment's most fashionable options, and all variants come with a good amount of standard equipment. It competes against several potent rivals, including the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, and Volkswagen Tiguan.


What Has Changed For 2022?


For 2022, Tucson receives a complete redesign that incorporates the brand's new design language for a striking appearance.


2022 Hyundai Tucson: Engine And Performance


The base engine is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 187 horsepower, an eight-speed automatic transmission, and either front- or all-wheel drive. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid models are powered by a turbocharged 1.6-liter four that, according to Hyundai, produces a combined 227 horsepower in the former and 261 horsepower in the latter.


All-wheel drive is standard with the electrified powertrains, and both come with a six-speed automatic transmission. The non-hybrid Tucson has enough power for both city driving and passing on the highway, but quick drivers will crave more. Our all-wheel-drive Limited test car reached 60 mph on our test track in 8.8 seconds.


Although the more potent hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles feel faster, neither of them will accelerate as quickly as a Toyota RAV4 Prime. Our loaded Limited hybrid test car ran from 0 to 60 mph on our test course in 7.1 seconds.

The Tucson is hardly a sports vehicle, yet it handles well, steers pretty crisply, and rides comfortably. The Tucson drives remarkably quietly and elegantly when cruising; it's these characteristics that give the SUV a sense of luxury that is uncommon in its class.


2022 Hyundai Tucson: Charging, Battery Life, And Range


According to the EPA, the plug-in hybrid vehicle has a 13.8 kWh battery pack that can support up to 33 miles of electric-only range. When connected to a level 2 charging station, the battery can be fully recharged in around two hours thanks to a 7.2-kW onboard charger.



2022 Hyundai Tucson: Interior And Comfort


The new Tucson has a straightforward but contemporary dashboard with a digital gauge display, a push-button shifter, and a touch-sensitive infotainment control panel. Hyundai's flagship Palisade SUV and the recently updated Sonata and Elantra sedans have acted as a kind of turning point for the company's interior designs, and the new Tucson seems to carry the trend with a thoughtfully structured cabin filled with high-quality materials and opulent features.

The 2022 Tucson offers improved passenger comfort and functionality thanks to increased rear seat and cargo spaces compared to the outgoing generation. Nine carry-on suitcases fit behind the hybrid's back row, and when the seatbacks were folded down, the total number of bags we could pack increased to 22.


2022 Hyundai Tucson: Connectivity


Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are included in the dashboard's standard 8.8-inch touchscreen; a bigger 10.3-inch screen with integrated navigation is available. Optional features include an enhanced Bose sound system and SiriusXM satellite radio. Hyundai's smartphone app for its digital key, which offers remote start functionality, in addition, to lock and unlock features, is another high-tech choice.


2022 Hyundai Tucson: Pricing


The starting price of the Hyundai Tuscon is $26,245.The starting MSRP for the top-of-the-line Tucson Hybrid Limited model is $43,775. The top-trim price of hybrid SUVs is also below average.


Which One To Purchase?


Given that it strikes a fantastic mix between features and cost, we advise the SEL Convenience trim. It includes a sunroof, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, heated front seats, and a 10.3-inch digital gauge display as standard equipment.


Newly available models include a sporty N Line and a tough XRT, but those looking for a high-performance turbocharged four-cylinder will be disappointed to realize that choosing either of these is merely an aesthetic package.
