We Recommend

Priced just $2600 more than the base Blue trim, the SEL Convenience trim offers great features at the price of $31,650. Although the base Blue trim is quite the bargain in itself, the SEL Convenience ups the ante. So, that is what we’ll recommend. The Limited is a little too pricey. 

What’s the expected price and release date of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid?

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid line-up gets three options, the base Blue model, SEL Convenience package, and top-end Limited trim. The price range is expected to be from $29,050 to $37,350. The subcompact SUV is expected to hit US shores around the beginning of 2022.

Engine and Performance

This results in a total combined output of around 226 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.

2022 Hyundai Tucson hybrid SUV In Acceleration Mode

The most powerful of the lot is the Hyundai Tucson Hybrid that gets a comparatively smaller but potent engine. The price range of Tucson is cutthroat to competitors. All SUVs in this class get CVT transmission except the Tucson Hybrid which sports a 6-speed automatic. Apart from the impressive performance and exhilarating acceleration, the new Tucson also handles fairly well.

How does the 2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid handle?

Hyundai seems to have emphasized a lot on the handling front as well. New technologies like e-Handling focus on delivering better traction, especially on the tighter corners. The all-new HTRAC all-wheel-drive system comes as standard across all the trims, while the re-tuned suspension system takes care of ample road performance.

The new Hybrid sports a Power rack and pinion steering setup that assures better control at high speeds. Apart from this, the hybrid system also plays a vital role in the optimum handling of the SUV, as it ensures smoother power delivery through the powertrain.

Fuel Economy
8.0/10

All three versions of the Hybrid SUV get the same powertrain setup. The new all-wheel-drive system is also common across all the trims. The new Tucson will offer a combined mileage of 38 MPG thanks to the efficient hybrid engine. All these figures are EPA estimates though. Moreover, with a massive 13.7-gallon fuel tank and hybrid technology underneath, the SUV offers a staggering 520 plus miles of range.

The best driving range is delivered by Ford Escape Hybrid followed by Toyota RAV4 Hybrid. The CR-V comes in a very close third in terms of the overall range. However, the Tucson Hybrid lacks both in range and efficiency when compared to the rivals in the group. 

Interior
9.0/10
