Redesigned 2022 Hyundai Tucson Adds $1,250 to Its Starting Sum
Hyundai’s compact SUV’s head-turning looks come at a cost.
Your 101-level business professor was right: There really is no such thing as a free lunch. Take the 2022 Hyundai Tucson, for instance. It's bigger, more stylish, and comes with more features than the model it replaces. And guess what? It's also more expensive than its forebear.
SEe What You Get?
With a base price of $26,135, the entry-level 2022 Hyundai Tucson SE stickers for $1,250 more than its 2021 counterpart. Those extra bucks, however, buy you an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display (one inch bigger than before), LED headlights with automatic high beams, a 187-hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine (up 26 horses from the old 2.0-liter), and those aforementioned hard-edged wares.
Step up to the $27,685 Tucson SEL and the compact SUV brings additional kit such as heated front seats, a blind-spot monitoring system, a proximity key, and adaptive cruise control.
Need a little extra bling? Then check out the $31,785 Tucson N Line, which wears more aggressive exterior decor, special 19-inch wheels, and comes standard with a massive 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Opt for the $35,885 Limited and your Tucson sports a standard 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display, an in-dash navigation system, a panoramic sunroof, surround-view monitor, front and rear parking sensors, a heated steering wheel, and heated rear seats.
Like the SE, the SEL, N Line, and Limited all come standard with the same 187-hp 2.5-liter engine that sends power to the front wheels by way of an eight-speed automatic. All-wheel-drive is a $1,400 option across the line.
Hyundai also offers the 2022 Tucson in gasoline-electric hybrid and plug-in gasoline-electric hybrid forms. While the brand's keeping mum on the latter setup's pricing, it's not holding back on the former. As its name implies, the Tucson Hybrid relies on a combination of gasoline and electric power sources, in this case, a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder and an electric motor, which produce a combined peak output of 227 hp. All-wheel-drive is standard.
Choose the entry-level Tucson Hybrid Blue, and you're looking at a bill for $30,235. Like the gas-powered Tucson SEL, the Tucson Hybrid Blue comes standard with heated front seats, a blind-spot monitoring system, a proximity key, and adaptive cruise control. The $32,835 Hybrid SEL, meanwhile, seemingly adds the standard SEL's $2,600 Convenience package that nets the likes of a hands-free power liftgate, a sunroof, a 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and dual-automatic climate control. Finally, the $38,535 Tucson Hybrid Limited brings the high-end features of the gas-powered Tucson Limited to the gasoline-electric hybrid model.
