What to expect from the upcoming 2022 Hyundai Tucson? The company says that the new ride would be coming with new designs and improvements that will create an impressive outcome for the SUV market.
There was a concept shown at LA Auto Show in 2019 displaying a hybrid plug-in, but the upcoming Tucson in entry level would be coming with gas four-cylinder 2.5 liter capacity – which is similar to the Sonata, the family sedan.
The ride will also offer hybrid arrangement with four cylinder turbocharged 1.6 liter capacity supported with electric motor. As if it weren’t enough, there would be N-Line Tucson with sportier design and look. If it launches, it will compete against Toyota RAV4, VW Tiguan, Mazda CX-5, and Honda CR-V. With the redesigned work, the new ride has bolder look as well as improved performance.
2022 Hyundai Tucson: Transmission, Performance, and Engine
The standard engine would be the four cylinder with 2.5 liter capacity with auto 8-speed transmission, paired up with either all-wheel or front wheel driving system. The hybrid and plug-in trim would be powered with 1.6 liter turbocharged that can produce 226 hp of power. For the electric engine, it will come with all-wheel driving system. The hybrid engine can travel 28 miles in electric only, which isn’t bad at all.
Although EPA hasn’t said anything about the fuel economy system for 2022 Hyundai Tucson, but it is likely that the ride would be coming with 23 mpg for the city, 28 mpg for the highway, and 25 mpg combined. Hyundai wants to have 28 mpg combined for their non-hybrid and front wheel driving system, but let’s see how it turns out for the company.
Interior Cabin and Comfort
For the interior cabin, Tucson has a modern but simple design, shown through the dashboard, push button shifter, touch-sensitive (control) panel, and digital gauge display. The company also includes luxury features and quality materials to improve not only look but also comfort. The cargo area and rear space are definitely bigger than the current model, which is designed to boost practicality, functionality, and comfort.
For the entertainment section, the ride comes with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay, bigger navigation display screen with 10.3 inches, satellite radio, WiFi hotspot, stereo system, and more. There would be also digital (key) smartphone app especially designed by Hyundai.
Prices and Availability
In terms of prices, there would be different price ranges for the ride. For the entry level of SE, it’s likely starting up from around $25,000. The higher trim of SEL would be $27,000. For the Limited line, it would be $30,000. For the Ultimate, it would be $33,000, and for the premium line of N-Line, it would be $34,000.
Unfortunately, there hasn’t any further info and detail about the detailed trims – which means that it would be difficult to choose the one with the best value. In the past, though, the SEL has the best balance of price and features.
And this is the first time that they offer the N-Line sporty line, which is offering the four cylinder turbocharged power that may produce 300 hp of power. Let’s wait further for detailed release of 2022 Hyundai Tucson.
