Overview

The previous edition of the Hyundai Tucson compact crossover was plain-looking and a little small for the class. Hyundai fixed both issues with the all-new 2022 version. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson is now larger on the inside and more unique on the outside. It delivers comfortable five-passenger seating with plenty of luggage room. While it has some off-road capabilities, the Tucson is far more impressive on the highway and around town, thanks to its smooth ride and precise handling. Although larger than before, the new Tucson is still about the same size as the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. And like its primary competitors, the Tucson now offers both hybrid and plug-in hybrid models that deliver exceptional mileage along with everyday practicality.

Trims and Pricing

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson is available in SE, SEL, N Line, and Limited trim levels. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is an option on all trims. All-wheel drive costs $1,400 across the lineup. The Tucson hybrid is available in three trims: Hybrid Blue, Hybrid SEL Convenience, and Hybrid Limited. The Tucson plug-in hybrid will become available in the summer (2021), and the trims have not been announced.

The base SE comes with an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system and standard safety systems, such as forward-collision avoidance, pedestrian detection and lane-keeping assist. Starting price is $26,135 (including a $1,185 destination fee). Additional features include remote keyless entry, a six-way adjustable driver's seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, electric parking brake, and a 4.2-inch color information display.

The Tucson SEL ($27,685) is equipped with LED taillights, roof rails, proximity key system, power-adjustable driver's seat, heated front seats, and adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability. With the Convenience package, buyers can add 19-inch alloy wheels, a 10.25-inch digital instrumentation screen, and wireless charging, among other features. The SEL is our recommended trim for its comprehensive list of features under $30K.

The sporty N Line brings with it blacked-out trim and details, 19-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, sporty interior trim, and a Bose audio system for $31,785.

The Limited luxury model ($35,885) gets 19-inch alloy wheels, paddle shifters, projection LED headlights, heated rear seats, a heated steering wheel, remote parking assist, and a panoramic sunroof.

The Tucson hybrids are available in a basic Hybrid Blue trim, a Hybrid SEL Convenience trim that mimics and adds to the conventional SEL trim package, and the Hybrid Limited trim. The last of these includes much of the equipment on the conventional Limited trim. The base Tucson Hybrid Blue is priced at $30,235. The Tucson plug-in hybrid has yet to be priced.

Price Information

Engine and Performance

The conventional 2022 Tucson is powered by a 187-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 178 pound-feet of peak torque. These power ratings make it exceptionally competitive in the compact-crossover category. The engine drives either the front or all wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. The hybrid powertrain uses a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine in tandem with an electric motor to drive all four wheels. The combined horsepower for the hybrid system is 226 hp. The Tucson plug-in hybrid uses the same 1.6-liter turbocharged engine paired with a higher-horsepower electric motor. The combination delivers 261 hp.

In comparison, the conventional Honda CR-V is powered by a turbocharged 190-hp 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine teamed with a continuously variable automatic transmission. The Honda CR-V Hybrid uses a 2.0-liter gasoline engine teamed with two electric motors for a combined system horsepower of 212. The hottest of the hybrids is the Toyota RAV4 Prime, a plug-in hybrid providing 302 hp. The Tucson Hybrid offers more horsepower and instant torque application for better drivability than the conventional Tucson. Braking performance in all trims is solid. And despite its larger size this year, the Tucson still feels maneuverable around town.

Fuel Economy

The conventional Hyundai Tucson offers good fuel economy right in line with its segment. And the hybrid version does even better. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the front-drive Tucson with the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine delivers an estimated 26 mpg during city driving and 33 mpg on the highway. The base Tucson Hybrid Blue is rated at 38 mpg for city and highway driving, while the Hybrid SEL and Limited models are estimated at 37 mpg for the city and 36 mpg on the highway. No EPA fuel economy numbers have been announced for the N Line or the Tucson plug-in. In comparison, a conventional front-drive Honda CR-V is EPA-rated at 28 mpg during city driving and 34 mpg on the highway. The Honda CR-V Hybrid gets an estimated 40 mpg during city driving and 35 mpg on the highway.

Interior

The Hyundai Tucson has grown from being among the smallest in the class to one of the largest. It offers more passenger volume than two forerunners in the segment, the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V. The Tucson can transport a family of four or even five with ample rear head- and legroom for adults in all versions. Luggage space behind the second-row seats is among the most generous in the class. The crossover delivers plenty of ride comfort, and well-designed seats make it pleasant for long vacation drives.

The Hyundai Tucson has 38.7 cubic feet of luggage space, which is on par with the Honda CR-V and larger than the new off-road-oriented Ford Bronco Sport. With its rear seat folded down, the usable space expands to 74.8 cubic feet.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Hyundai separates itself from the pack with jumbo infotainment display screens. The top-level system has a 10.25-inch touchscreen, and the other trims have 8-inch touchscreens. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and HD Radio are standard across the Tucson lineup. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are offered with the 8-inch touchscreen system. Qi wireless charging is available as well. In addition to the expansive 10.25-inch screen, the Tucson's navigation system offers split-screen functionality so it can display even more information at a glance. An eight-speaker Bose audio system is available on the SEL and Blue trims and standard on the N Line and Limited models. Dual USB ports are built into every Tucson, and second-row USB ports are standard on all, but the SE trims. In our testing, we found the infotainment system responded well to voice controls.

Safety

We expect the 2022 Hyundai Tucson to offer excellent overall safety. Still, it has not yet been rated by either the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration or the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. The previous Tucson got a five-star rating from (NHTSA) and (IIHS) called it a Top Safety Pick.

The 2022 Tucson has several standard active safety features and even more are optional. Forward-collision avoidance with pedestrian and cyclist detection, lane-keeping assist, rear occupant alert, driver attention warning, and high-beam assist are the standard features. Blind-spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, safe exit warning, and adaptive cruise control with stop and go are optional. The Tucson's Remote Smart Parking Assist allows owners to park and later retrieve the vehicle from the tight parking spaces while standing outside the vehicle.

Hyundai Tucson vs. the?Competition

The Tucson's distinctive good looks, rich mix of features, and solid performance make it worth consideration. And the new hybrid version offers a responsive feel and impressive fuel economy. Other good choices in the segment include the Nissan Rogue, the Toyota RAV4](toyota/rav4/), and the redesigned Mitsubishi Outlander. The Ford Bronco Sport is a new off-road-oriented entry that's more capable in the dirt than the Tucson but less refined on the road.

The self lifting tailgate. The reclining rear seats. That the mute button was put back on the steering wheel. Cordless charging.
cons
Options I that came on my 2015 Tucson Limited were extra on my 2021 Limited. I wish the radio screen was implemented into the dash and didn’t look like a pop up screen. I also wish I had a 3 prong power outlet on the backside of the console. I liked when my rear turn signals were yellow and not all red.

The Starting Market Average is a proprietary mathematical calculation based on actual recent transactions. It provides a statistically accurate understanding of what other buyers are paying for the least expensive configuration of this vehicle. Adjustments to the calculation beyond make, model, and trim are normalized based on detailed, anonymized transaction information. This accounts for the fact that most or all recently-sold vehicles included different option combinations. The data underlying the Starting Market Average calculation are filtered for extreme outliers and subjected to a weighted averaging process that considers factors such as the recency of transactions and the timing of data lags. In certain instances, the calculated result is adjusted to take account of abrupt changes in the market that may not yet be fully reflected by recent transaction prices. In all cases where the Starting Market Average is shown there is sufficient sample size and transaction detail to be statistically reliable.
