Redesign Info

The Hyundai Tucson has been around since 2004 and entered its third generation in 2016. Though the redesign was only five model years ago, the compact CUV segment has changed a lot since then, and Hyundai must adapt with a completely redesigned 2022 Tucson.

The current Tucson is often lauded for its elegant simplicity that caters to a broad range of buyers. The 2022 Tucson will head in the opposite direction with a more standout look that’ll include hard body lines and creases, unique front and rear lighting designs that remain hidden until you turn on the lights, a full-width taillight assembly, a parametric grille, and more. It will also come in a long and short wheelbase to accommodate all buyers.

Inside, the 2022 Tucson will focus on openness with its clean design that’ll feature an available 10.25-inch buttonless infotainment screen with navigation and a hoodless digital gauge cluster to keep things airy. Making this space feel more upscale will be cushioned high-touch areas, metal trimming, and an available 64-color ambient lighting system. Thanks to its fold-and-dive second-row seats, the Tucson will also boast plenty of cargo room.

Standard features will include an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, multiple Bluetooth connectivity, and more. There will also be an optional Bose premium audio system for audiophiles and smartphone as a key.

Hyundai Tucson

The standard 2022 Tucson will come with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 187 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. This engine will mate with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 2022 Tucson Hybrid will boast a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and an electric motor that combine for 226 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The plug-in variant will get a high output 1.6-liter turbocharged engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission but performance numbers are not yet available. Hyundai has announced that it will get up to 28 miles of all-electric range

Safety will also be a priority in the 2022 Tucson, as the Hyundai SafetySense suite will include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, active lane-keep assist, lane-follow assist, blind-spot monitoring, a 360-degree camera, remote smart parking, automatic high-beam headlights, driver-attention warning, and more. Hyundai didn’t mention which of those features will be standard or optional.

Pricing & Release Date

There isn’t an official on-sale date for the 2022 Tucson yet, but Hyundai announced it’ll hit U.S. showrooms in the first half of 2021.

Pricing is also uncertain, but we expect at least a mild price increase over the current model’s $24,875 to $34,625 (destination fees included) MSRP range. This is especially true in the hybrid models, which should push the peak price way up.

This compact crossover will compete with the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and Ford Escape.
