Hyundai has been updating its SUV lineup in recent months. Nearly everything in the Hyundai lineup is new or redesigned, even the small Venue and three-row Palisade. It’s now the turn of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid, this Hyundai small SUV competes with the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and others.
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid is a departure from the traditional Hyundai Tucson. Can an affordable SUV still be avant-gardeable? The all-new model is now in its fourth generation and features a distinctive cascading headlight design as well as squared wheel arches, bold creases on bodywork, and squared wheel arches.
Interior design is more dynamic with no hard buttons in the center stack and a shroudless digital panel. Three powertrain options are available for 2022. You can choose from a gasoline engine or a hybrid option with up to 28 miles of electric-only range. Some things, such as Hyundai’s generous warranty, and overall good value for money, have not changed. We think Hyundai has done a great job with the new Tucson.
