2022 Hyundai Tucson - Very Nice SUV!

2022 Hyundai Tucson Starting at: $26,135 Highs Daring exterior design, well-equipped cabin, available hybrid and plug-in hybrid powertrains. Lows Goofy push-button shifter, no volume knob, no high-performance model offered. Verdict Its futuristic look turns heads, but the Tucson’s practicality and pleasant driving dynamics are more likely to win the hearts of buyers. Overview Previewed by the Vision T concept at the 2019 LA auto show, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson sports a daring new design that seems destined to shake up the compact-SUV marketplace. The entry-level Tucson is powered by a more conventional 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine shared with the Sonata family sedan but a hybrid and a plug-in hybrid will be offered, both using a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder augmented by an electric motor. All models are fairly well equipped and the Tucson is among the most stylish options in the segment. It goes head-to-head with several strong rivals such as the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, and the Volkswagen Tiguan, but the new Tucson has brought its A-game. What’s New for 2022? The Tucson is redesigned from stem to stern for 2022, incorporating the company’s new design language for a bold look. Pricing and Which One to Buy SE: $26,135 SEL: $27,685 Blue hybrid: $30,275 SEL Convenience: $30,285 N Line: $31,785 SEL Premium: $31,985 SEL Convenience hybrid: $32,875 Plug-in hybrid: $35,000 (est) Limited: $35,885 Limited Hybrid: $38,575 We suggest the SEL Convenience trim as it offers a great balance between features and price. It comes standard with heated front seats, blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, a sunroof, and a 10.3-inch digital gauge display, among other niceties. A sporty N Line model is also available for the first time, but for buyers hoping for a high-performance turbocharged four-cylinder will be disappointed to learn that opting for this trim amounts to nothing more than an appearance package. Engine, Transmission, and Performance A 187-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder will be standard and comes with an eight-speed automatic and either front or all-wheel drive. A turbocharged 1.6-liter four will power hybrid and plug-in hybrid models, which Hyundai says is good for a combined 227-hp in the former and 261-hp in the latter; all-wheel drive is standard with the electrified powertrains and both come with a six-speed automatic transmission. The nonhybrid Tucson offers adequate pep for both city driving and highway passing maneuvers, but lead-footed drivers will yearn for more power. At our test track, our all-wheel drive Limited test vehicle made it to 60 mph in 8.8 seconds. The more powerful hybrid and plug-in hybrid models both feel quicker, but don’t expect Toyota RAV4 Prime level acceleration from either of them. While the Tucson is no sports car, its handling is confident, its steering is reasonably crisp, and its ride is agreeable. What’s most striking about the Tucson’s driving demeanor is how quiet and refined it feels when cruising; it’s these traits that give the SUV a sense of luxury that is rare to find in this class. Range, Charging, and Battery Life The plug-in hybrid model sports a 13.8-kWh battery pack that is said to offer up to 32 miles of electric-only driving. A 7.2-kW on-board charger allows the battery to be fully recharged in about two hours when connected to a level 2 charging station. Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG The EPA estimates that nonhybrid versions of the 2022 Tucson should deliver as high as 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway with front-wheel drive. Fuel efficiency ratings for the hybrid models haven’t been released. When we get a chance to test the new Tucson for ourselves, we’ll see how well it does on our 75-mph highway fuel-economy route, which is part of our extensive testing regimen and helps us evaluate real-world mpg.

Interior, Comfort, and Cargo The new Tucson sports a simplistic but modern dashboard design with a digital gauge display, a push-button shifter, and touch-sensitive control panel for the climate-control system and infotainment. Hyundai’s flagship Palisade SUV and the brand’s recently redesigned Sonata and Elantra sedans have served as a sort of watershed moment for the company’s interior designs, and the new Tucson looks to continue the trend with a thoughtfully arranged interior filled with quality materials and luxury features. The 2022 Tucson’s rear seat space and cargo area are both larger than the outgoing model, providing more passenger comfort and practicality.
