Hyundai has revealed that the 2022 Tucson will be offered with three new or updated powertrain configurations, hybrid variations, and features new exterior styling.
The standard model will be powered by a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine, providing 178 hp and 182 lb.-ft. of torque and is paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. For the hybrid model, the combined hybrid system and turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine offers 229 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque.
The 2022 Tucson will be offered in both long- and short-wheelbase configurations globally, though the long-wheelbase version will be the only variation to arrive at U.S. dealers.
The redesign of the 2022 Tucson features reconfigured daytime running lights on the grille, and sharp edge designs running along the length of the vehicle. The interior includes a standard 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen or an optional 10.3-inch touchscreen.
The new Tucson also includes Hyundai’s Digital Key, a feature that allows users to use their smartphones as keys to the vehicle.
The new Tucson will also be offered in an N-Line variant and will be available in all markets, with more details to be announced on this version later in the year.
