The stylish 2022 Hyundai Tucson was revealed sporting a new design, more tech features, and a fully redesigned cabin last year. While we saw the all-new, fourth-gen Tucson in its entirety last September, Hyundai waited until now to provide official information on pricing. The 2022 Tucson arrives for the new model year with a starting price tag of $26,135 including destination.

From last year, pricing for the Tucson has gone up by $1,250 for the entry-level SE trim. That’s a substantial increase, but not out of line for an all-new vehicle. Higher up the lineup, the mid-level SEL trim gets a $400 increase in pricing, now carrying a price tag of $27,685. Hold on to your hats, because the range-topping Limited has gone up by $5,300 from last year. Pricing for that trim starts at $35,885.

Hyundai has trimmed the Tucson’s lineup for the 2022 model year, as the Value, Sport, and Limited trims have all been cut. From last year, Hyundai has bolstered the Tucson’s list of standard features. The SE trim comes with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, a rear-seat warning, pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, LED headlights, high-beam assist, intelligent speed limit assist, and LED headlights. On the inside, the SUV comes with an 8-inch touchscreen compared to last year’s 7-inch unit. Lastly, the Tucson is powered by a more powerful 187-horsepower 2.5-liter engine compared to the outgoing 161-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder. So, it’s easy to see how the SE has gone up by $1,250.

Seeing pricing for the Limited trim go up by $5,300 may seem excessive, but it now takes over as the range-topping model for the 2022 Tucson. Before, the most expensive trim was the Ultimate that started at $33,235. So, comparing the 2022 Tucson Limited against last year’s Ultimate trim reveals a smaller difference of $2,650.

Hyundai hasn’t confirmed what kind of features the Limited will come with, but we’re going out on a limb to say that it will be packed to the gills with everything under the sun. The trim should come with things like a 10.25-inch touchscreen, a panoramic sunroof, heated rear seats, a surround-view monitor, Remote Smart Park Assist, and Hyundai’s digital key. Just like last year, we expect Hyundai to save its more advanced driver-assist safety features for the highest trim, which could also explain the reasoning for the increased price tag.

Compared to other compact SUVs, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson continues to be one of the more affordable options on the market. The Honda CR-V ($26,525), Mazda CX-5 ($26,545), Nissan Rogue ($26,900), and Toyota RAV4 ($27,325) are all more expensive. The Kia Sportage ($25,265) and the Subaru Forester ($25,845) are the few compact SUVs that are more affordable than the Tucson.

While we’re waiting to get the full list of standard features throughout the 2022 Tucson lineup, we think the model is well worth the extra money. The compact SUV is expected to go on sale during the first half of 2021 and certainly looks like it’s ready to put up a strong fight in one of the most popular segments on the market.
