Hyundai’s best-selling model globally, Tucson is set to receive some huge updates for its 2022 model year. Since its launch, it has gone through a number of significant changes and updates over the years, which includes a couple of generation upgrades as well. Kicking off the fourth Tucson generation is the completely redesigned 2022 Hyundai Tucson, which made its debut way back in September of 2020. The vehicle has been redesigned and redeveloped from the ground up, and both the interior and the exterior of the car are getting a massive overhaul.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide


Broadly, the 2022 Tucson is available in four different variants to choose from, viz. the regular, Hybrid, N Line, and then there is even a plug-in hybrid variant available as well. The regular Tucson is available in three different trim levels to choose from, viz. SE, SEL, and Limited. The hybrid variant is also available in three different trim levels, viz. Blue, SEL Convenience, and Limited. Then there is the sporty N Line, which is a standalone trim on its own. Last but not the least, the plug-in hybrid variant is available in two different trim levels viz. Blue and Limited. Although a very competent SUV in its segment, it still faces steep competition from the likes of some of the similarly capable compact crossover SUVs in the market like the Toyota RAV4, Nissan Rogue, and Mazda CX-5.

We Recommend

We would suggest you go with the Hyundai Tucson SEL trim as it comes with a powerful 2.5-Liter 4 cylinder engine. It produces 187 horsepower along with 178 lb-ft. of torque. The SEL trim comes featured with a heated steering wheel, 18-inch alloy wheels, dual exhaust with chrome tips, and power door locks. At pricing in the range of $26,500 to $27,500, the Tucson SEL trim is the best available choice. 

2022 Honda Tucson Price

  • SE: $24,950
  • SEL: $26,500
  • Limited: $34,700

For the Tucson Hybrid:

  • Blue: $29,050
  • Convenience: $31,650
  • Limited: $37,350

The Tucson N Line has a starting price range of $30,600. Then there is the Tucson Plug-In Hybrid variant whose pricing is yet to release by the company

2022 Honda Tucson Release Date

The 2022 Tucson gasoline and hybrid models will be available for the U.S. market in spring 2021, with plug-in hybrid models available in summer 2021.

2022 Hyundai Tucson Engine and Performance

The completely overhauled 2022 Hyundai Tucson is available with two powertrain options, which will depend if you are getting the hybrid variant or the non-hybrid one. Where the non-hybrid trims are powered by a 2.5L Inline-4 engine producing 187 HP and 178 lb-ft of torque, the hybrid variants are powered by a 1.6L turbocharged Inline-4 engine complemented by an electric motor together producing 226 HP and 258 lb-ft of torque. Hyundai estimates that the plug-in hybrid will be a bit more powerful with a combined output of 260 HP. Moreover, the plug-in hybrid variant should also be able to achieve an electric-only range of 28 miles, when fully charged. The reason being is that the Plug-in Hybrid battery comes with 13.8 kWh.

For the non-hybrid variants, you have the option to choose between a 2WD and an AWD drivetrain, and it comes paired with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants on the other hand come paired with a 6-speed automatic gearbox and are only equipped with an AWD drivetrain. As for the suspension setup, it comes equipped with a strut setup at the front and a multi-link setup at the back.

The suspension has been refined in conjunction with e-handling systems to minimize traditional compromises between sporty handling and comfortable ride quality. Since the 2022 Tucson is very new to the market, performance figures are yet to be tested, be it official or non-official. So in terms of power and torque output, the Hyundai Tucson and its competitors are in a very similar ballpark.

2022 Hyundai Tucson Fuel Economy

The 187-hp 2.5L GDI/MPI 4-cylinder engine powering the non-hybrid trims of the 2022 Tucson can deliver an estimated 26 mpg in the city, 33 mpg on the highway, giving a combined mileage of 29 mpg. On the other hand, the 1.6L turbocharged GDI 4-cylinder Hybrid unit powering the hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants should be able to deliver an estimated 38 mpg in both city and highway, giving a combined mileage of 38 mpg as well. 

So if you are actually serious about the environment and want to save on your gas bills, you should definitely opt for either the hybrid or the plug-in hybrid. The Plug-in Hybrid variant with 13.8 kWh of power, yielding an estimated all-electric range (AER) of 28 miles and an estimated fuel economy of over 70 MPGe. PHEV level-2 charging capability takes less than two hours to recharge the system, using a 7.2kW onboard charger.

Although the non-hybrid variant of the Tucson might not be the best in the segment with regards to fuel economy, it is in a very similar ballpark with most of its competitors nonetheless. That being said, if you are serious about fuel economy, you can always opt for the hybrid or the plug-in hybrid variant even though it might be a bit more expensive than their non-hybrid counterpart.

2022 Hyundai Tucson Interior

Just like the exterior, the interior of the new Tucson has been completely overhauled, which is a huge upgrade from its previous model year. The interior of the 2022 Tucson makes the interior of the previous model year look significantly antiquated. The 2022 Tucson is one of the first cars from Hyundai to adopt the new design language of the company which they call the ‘Parametric Dynamics’. Hyundai calls the interior of the 2022 Tucson, the “INTERSPACE”, which offers a sensuous feeling of openness and serenity.

Being a Hyundai, the quality of materials used is pretty top-notch for the segment, and combine that with the extremely durable build quality, you get the recipe for the perfect family compact crossover SUV. Fully integrated center fascia descends to the console like a waterfall. Twin silver garnish lines stream from the center fascia to the rear doors and blend neatly to the layered surface materials in complementary, neutral tones. Then there is ambient mood lighting which is adjustable to 64 colors in ten levels of brightness.

In terms of interior spaciousness, the 2022 Tucson and its competitors are in a similar ballpark. But the Tucson does have the edge in terms of cargo capacity, which makes it one of the most practical cars in the segment. It also has one of the better rear legroom in the segment. Some of the notable interior features of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson are:

  • Premium cloth upholstery
  • Metal-look interior accents 
  • Rubber front and rear floor mats
  • Three 12V DC power outlets
  • Front bucket seats
  • Reclining rear seats
  • YES Essentials premium cloth front and rear seat upholstery
  • Urethane shift knob
  • Smart device integration

2022 Hyundai Tucson Exterior

As mentioned earlier, the 2022 Tucson is one of the first cars from Hyundai to adopt the new design language of the company which they call the ‘Parametric Dynamics’. The new Tucson has jewel-like surface detailing that makes it stand out in the crowded SUV segment. The long hood and level roofline coupled with a long wheelbase and short overhangs express an extremely dynamic character.

Moreover, the 2022 Tucson has more crisp geometric angles and edges than ever before, which makes it one of the more masculine-looking Tucson to date. The kinetic design theme carries over to the rear, where the full-width taillamp incorporates half-concealed triangular shapes that are clearly visible when illuminated.

External dimension-wise, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson and its competitors are more or less in a similar ballpark, but the Hyundai does have one of the longer wheelbases in the competition, which explains the better legroom for the rear seat passengers.

2022 Hyundai Tucson Safety

2022 Hyundai Tucson comes equipped with an excellent suite of active and passive safety systems, with an array of advanced safety technologies as part of the Hyundai SmartSense Safety Feature suite. The new Tucson currently offers more standard and available active safety features than ever before. Standard Smart Sense Safety features include:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) with Pedestrian and Cyclist Detection
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Lane Following Assist (LFA)
  • High Beam Assist (HBA)
  • Highway Driving Assist (HDA)
  • Driver Attention Warning (HBA)
  • Rear Occupant Alert (ROA)

Optional Safety Features include:

  • Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist (BCA)
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist (RCCA)
  • Safe Exit Warning (SEW)
  • Smart Cruise Control (SCC) with Stop & Go
  • Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert (ROA)
  • Remote Smart Parking Assist (RSPA)

As for safety ratings, both NHTSA and IIHS haven’t conducted crash tests on the 2022 Tucson yet. That being said, the old 2021 Tucson did manage to get an overall 5-star rating from NHTSA with 5 stars in all of the individual tests as well, except the rollover test. So the 2022 Tucson could only be expected to be the same in terms of its safety quotient, if not better.

2022 Hyundai Tucson Competition

2022 Hyundai Tucson vs 2021 Toyota RAV4

The new Tucson manages to beat the Toyota RAV4 where the old one fell short in a significant way. It is now more practical than the RAV4, and the better rear-seat legroom also means that the rear seat passengers will now be happier in the new Tucson than in the RAV4. The new Tucson has the potential to give the RAV4 a serious run for its money, especially due to the segment-leading 10-year warranty for which Hyundai is famous.

2022 Hyundai Tucson vs 2021 Nissan Rogue

Both the Hyundai Tucson and Nissan Rogue are pretty solid picks in the compact crossover SUV segment. Both have their pros and cons in their own unique way, and it all depends on personal preference at the end of the day. Both feature an upscale interior with an array of driver assistance features. But the Tucson does have the edge in terms of rear-seat legroom, and cargo capacity, and the overall practicality of the car.

2022 Hyundai Tucson vs 2021 Mazda CX-5

Although the new Tucson has improved quite a lot in terms of its overall driving dynamics, the Mazda CX-5 might just be the more fun-to-drive car between the two. The driver-oriented dynamics of the CX-5 make one of the more popular choices among the customers who like driving their car. Moreover, the CX-5 also has a very distinctive road presence among all the other compact crossover SUVs in the market. But it loses its edge quite significantly with regards to practicality as the CX-5 might just be one of the least impressive cars with regards to cargo capacity.

2022 Hyundai Tucson Final Verdict

The Tucson competes in a very competitive segment of the market, and Hyundai has done a great job to keep their most popular car relevant in the market, at least for a few more years to come. A person going for a family crossover SUV has a vast array of expectations, and fulfilling all or most of them is no easy task. That being said, the 2022 Tucson manages to tick most of the boxes, and that too in a competent manner as well. Hyundai has done a great job in keeping the car up-to-date and relevant to the market and in the competition as well. In fact, Tucson has the potential to give the other cars in its segment a serious run for their money.

The new 2022 Tucson has improved in a lot of ways where the old Tucson lacked. The addition of hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants is a welcome change as well. It now comes with Hyundai Assurance which is made up of Owner Assurance, including complimentary maintenance, and Shopper Assurance, which together offer customers a variety of ways to simplify the buying process and improve the owning and service experience. If you are planning on getting a new compact SUV, you can go for the 2022 Hyundai Tucson without any hesitation.
