The 2022 Hyundai Tucson Is Driver’s Auto Mart’s Used Car of The Week!
This week, Driver’s Auto Mart is highlighting a car that is only a month into its model year, and that is the 2022 Hyundai Tucson. This compact SUV is the perfect blend of style, high-tech, and performance. This crossover also has a spacious interior and is loaded with connectivity features.
Let’s explore more what this Used Car of The Week has to offer.
Engine and Drive
The newest Tucson SUV only has one available powertrain (unless you opted for the Hybrid or upcoming PHEV variants). It comes with a 4-cylinder 2.5-L engine connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission, producing a decent output of 187 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque.
This Hyundai vehicle fairs quite well with its numbers for the highway fuel economy, specifically with 33 mpg for front-wheel-drive (FWD) models and 29 mpg for all-wheel-drives (AWD). Maximum towing power also amounts to 2,000 lbs.
Driving the 2022 Tucson is a joy to drive, partly because of its triple-layer windshield and soundproof materials that provide a quiet ride.
This 5-seater compact uses its AWD system to send over 50 percent of its power to the rear wheels when necessary. Amazingly, this allotment of power is smooth enough to virtually no detection from the driver, but its impact can be felt in terms of the composure while driving on slippery roads.
The latest Tucson model incorporates angular lines and a husky stance, along with short overhangs and an extended wheelbase. This interesting mix creates a confident attitude and sporty look.
The ridged grille takes over the front end, along with jeweled elements and LED headlights, which are features that aren’t normally seen on SUVs, but flow perfectly with this 2022 model. Meanwhile, the rear has narrow-angular taillights that are equivalent to the car’s design concept.
A recent implementation of this Hyundai model is the brand’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design, which was first used on the 2021 Elantra. The angles and lines mirror that of the company’s Vision T Concept, however, the Tucson’s lines are a bit more realistic and have better proportions.
The base model also rides on 17-inch alloy wheels, while some models used 19-inch alloys.
Interior and Standard Features
Inhouse, this Hyundai model keeps it classy and sophisticated, while also jazzing it up with its tech features, such as the top trim’s dual-stacked 10.25-inch touchscreen. This screen serves as an epicenter for audio, navigation, communication, climate control, and more.
This cabin is also quite spacious, providing 41.3 inches of rear legroom, while the cargo room amounts to 38.7 cubic feet (total capacity is 41 feet with the dual-level cargo floor).
Base standards include cloth seats, an 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, wireless smartphone charging. Safety-centered features encompass forward-collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-following assist, automatic high beams, driver attention monitoring, and rear occupant alert.
