The 2022 Hyundai Tucson: The Best New SUV Might Be The Right One For You

At Moon Township Hyundai, we're proud that the brand-new 2022 Hyundai Tucson has done something that's almost unheard-of. It was selected by U.S. News & World Report as the #1 SUV in three different categories: #1 Compact SUV, #1 Crossover SUV and #1 Two-Row SUV. That's especially impressive because U.S. News bases its ratings on data from eight expert reviewers, so it's worth the short trip from Wexford to Moon Township.

Design

The new 2022 Hyundai Tucson has a dynamic new exterior design that makes it look like it's about to take over the roads. It just might. The grille and Hyundai badge are bold and blacked-out. Standard wheels are striking 17-inch alloys and higher trims offer an even more striking 19-inch variation.

Performance

The U.S. News team describes performance in the 2022 Hyundai Tucson as "zippy," thanks to its 187 horsepower four-cylinder engine. The superior handling of front-wheel drive comes standard or you can get the extra traction of available all-wheel drive. The suspension minimizes road bumps, the ride feels stable and the new Tucson maneuvers well on tight city streets in Pittsburgh. It also loves the back roads around Aliquippa.

Interior & Technology

When you might be expecting a fairly basic environment in a compact SUV, the newest Hyundai Tucson resembles something closer to the luxury class. Design and fit look upscale. Surfaces are a gratifying soft-touch feel. The dashboard has a smooth, seamless style with an elegant, sweeping flow. Even the sound is first-class. Cargo space also impresses, with a massive 74.8 cubic feet when rear seats are folded: one of the best-in-class.

You can choose from two configurations in terms of infotainment. The base-level arrangement puts an 8-iinch touchscreen in the middle and an analog gauge cluster right behind the steering wheel. Even at this SUV's starting point, you get the simplicity of physical knobs and buttons to control key audio and temperature functions. Wireless smart phone compatibility comes standard and so does a six-speaker stereo system.

Step up to higher trims and you get a larger 10.25-inch touchscreen. At this level, devices can be charged wirelessly so your family members don't get into turf wars trying to claim an available charging port. And this will sound good: Get the entire back row dancing with the available eight-speaker Bose Stereo. Also available: Dual-zone climate control, satellite radio, the convenience of keyless entry, a digital key and a panoramic sunroof.

Safety

The standard safety features on the 2022 Hyundai Tucson are living up to a standard all their own. Even with base models, you'll get a rear view camera to help you move safely in reverse. There's a system that can detect and alert you when you might have a collision that's about to occur. Another system is ready to brake forcefully enough to help you avoid that collision altogether. Even more advanced safety is also available.

Trims

For 2022, the Hyundai Tucson comes in four trims. In ascending order, they are: the Tucson SE, the Tucson SEL, The Tucson Hybrid Blue and the Tucson N Line. All but the hybrid come with the in-line four engine and produce 187 horsepower. In terms of gas mileage, all the non-hybrids are surprisingly efficient: 26 mpg, city, and 33 mpg on highways. The hybrid, of course, is the fairest of all when it comes to efficiency: 38 mpg city and 38 mpg highway.
