When the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson hits the market, this compact crossover will be bigger in every way to give you more of what you desire.
The size is larger in every direction, it has more power options than before, and it does have a slightly higher starting price point. All of these things combine together to give you a new Tucson that can easily be the perfect choice when you’re ready to get behind the wheel and take a drive.
A First-Time Hybrid Offering
For the first time, we will see a hybrid version of the Hyundai Tucson offered. This new model uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a battery pack that brings power to 227 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. This model can be had with AWD, uses a six-speed automatic transmission, and is offered in three trims to give you the options you want for your drive.
More Standard Items in the Hyundai Tucson
When you talk about the Hyundai name, you expect to find more standard features offered to bring more benefits to your daily drive. The new Tucson will have wireless Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, forward collision avoidance, pedestrian detection, LED exterior lighting, automatic high beams, and speed limit assist. These will be standard items offered which makes the packaging that much better when you choose the Tucson.
How Should You Shop for this SUV?
We know the starting price will be a bit more than previous models. The base trim is the SE model which can be had with AWD for a little more. This model makes use of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Move to the SEL and you have more features and the N Line model gives you performance-based features that make the drive more fun. If you want the most comfort for your drive, the Limited trim is where you’ll find the greatest package of features.
The Price is Right
When looking at how the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson compares to other SUVs in its class, you’ll find the price is right where it should be. This new model is less expensive than the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V when base versions are compared. The starting point is only slightly more than the Ford Escape. Move to the top trims with AWD and the Tucson is a little more than the CR-V and RAV4 but slightly less expensive than the Escape.
If we compare hybrid models, the Honda CR-V is the most expensive of these four models with the Ford Escape coming in at a little more expensive than the hybrid version of the Hyundai Tucson.
