The all-new 2022 Hyundai Tucson seems to have plenty of new green credentials to boast about. Hyundai has decided to equip new Tucson models with greener and more sustainable engine options, from mild to full hybrid plug-in hybrid options.
Extensive and greener powertrain options aren’t the only thing Hyundai’s latest Tucson can boast. The new model also offers premium interior features as well as plenty of space so the driver and all passengers can feel relaxed and comfortable for any journey.
Let’s take a closer look at the 2022 Hyundai Tucson and its coolest features.
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson: Full Hybrid
Although the 2022 Hyundai Tucson is available with a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine as well as a T-GDi 180 48 Volt MHEV option, the best engine option available has to be the 1.6 T-GDi 230 Hybrid. While drivers can take advantage of petrol power for longer journeys, the electric motor is more than enough to take its driver on shorter and quieter journeys.
The full hybrid Tucson can deliver great performance, including 227 horsepower and a 0-60 MPH time of 6.8 seconds. While that doesn’t make the 2022 Tucson the fastest family SUV on the market, it’s certainly much faster than the model with the standard gas engine, which can deliver a time of 10.3 seconds.
These figures allow the new Hyundai Tucson 2022 to beat its close competitors, the Kia Sportage and the Ford Kuga.
If a driver wants to enjoy more mileage on their electric motor on immense performance, the top-of-the-line 1.6 T-GDI plug-in hybrid model can deliver 38 miles of electric power on its own.
2022 Hyundai Tucson: Smaller wheels are actually better
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson comes with the option of 19-inch wheels. However, they do not improve the SUV in any way. Instead, they can make difficult terrain quite bumpy to traverse. The driver would not feel completely comfortable or still while driving on rocky surfaces.
Still, the smaller wheel option, the 17-inch, is much more capable of tackling tough abrasions and rocky terrain. They will make the driver feel much more relaxed and in control no matter what surface they are driving on.
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson has an all-electric driver’s seat
If a customer opts for the top-of-the-line 2022 Hyundai Tucson, then they can enjoy something quite fancy inside. The higher versions are equipped with a fully electric driver’s seat, which moves at the click of a button. As a result, drivers won’t have to find it inconvenient to reposition their seats after entering and exiting.
In addition, this seat is completely made of memory foam. So when a driver climbs back up after a long day’s work, they can feel completely rested and completely at ease.
For added comfort, the seat also offers a well-placed armrest so that the driver can achieve even more relaxation while driving.
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson gets an excellent satellite navigation system
Unlike other cars that offer tiny sat nav screens, the latest Tucson model has an infotainment system with a 10.3-inch touchscreen. The screen is large enough for anyone to see directions and the map without needing to pick up a pair of glasses. Plus, smart graphics allow the screen to look as sharp as today’s best flat-panels.
Besides being large enough for everyone to see, the sat nav is also very easy to navigate and use. The responsiveness of the controls is quick so no driver will feel too distracted when using it mid-ride.
The navigation system can switch from maps to music playlists and more thanks to Bluetooth connectivity, DAB radio and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring, which come as standard.
High-end versions of the Tucson come with additional infotainment features, including wireless phone charging and an eight-speaker Krell premium audio system.
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson isn’t afraid of space
One of the things a family would look for in an SUV is plenty of space, which the 2022 Hyundai Tucson is not afraid of. From the front space to the cargo area, it has it all.
It doesn’t matter if big kids or adults want to sit in the back or in the front, as both can suit those with long legs. There is plenty of space for the feet as well as for the head, even for those who are around 1.80 meters tall.
The Tucson seats don’t slide back and forth like many would hope. But, they recline easily so passengers can take a comfortable nap. Additionally, for added space and convenience, the rear seats fold down in a very useful 40/20/40 split.
Overall, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson looks like a family SUV that could easily suit everyone. From its expansive and greener engine options to its sleek and spacious interior, it has a lot to say for itself.
