The new release of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson has been a topic of conversation and a much-anticipated event within the automotive industry. The updates and newest features make this the SUV to have. With more creature comforts, amped-up power, dependable safety features, and extra cabin space, you’re certain to find something enticing about the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson. If you’re in the market for a new SUV, review all the features that come standard and as add-ons for this unique and well-developed sports utility vehicle. Read on to see our list of the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson’s top features.
Carefully Constructed Interior Design
The updated interior takes functionality and visual appeal into consideration. The simplistic and modern dashboard design has all the necessities at your fingertips and is user-friendly, even for those who aren’t technologically savvy. The thoughtfully designed interior features a touch sensitive control panel for climate control and access to infotainment. The push-button shifter and digital gauge display help the driver monitor the SUV’s status for maximum road safety. Visually pleasing, Hyundai has incorporated what they call a “hidden tech” design that has the dash surrounding the driver and front passenger with fully integrated display screens.
There are no seams, no buttons jutting out, and no knobs to turn. This design makes for a sleek interior and easy cleaning. The central driver panel controls all the features necessary to run the vehicle while the secondary display panel, accessible to passengers, control features such as audio input, phone connections, and navigation systems.
The spacious cabin has increased in size from previous models. Overall passenger volume increased by 6 cubic feet while cargo space jumped up an entire 7.7 cubic feet. An increase in legroom now helps to sit five full-size adults comfortably within the cabin, so even on a long drive, those seated in the back ride in comfort. Both front and rear seats also have a contoured design that provides support surrounding the occupants, and enhances overall comfort while seated.
Technology and Safety Features
Standard in every 2022 Hyundai Tucson is an 8.8-inch touch screen integrated into the dashboard with Apply CarPlay and Android Auto. With ease, drivers and passengers can link their compatible devices and enjoy music or share content to enhance the driving and riding experience. A larger 10.3-inch screen with built-in navigation is an optional feature, as are an upgraded stereo system and a Wi-Fi hotspot. Driver-assist technology — options and features that were once only available on luxury editions — come standard with the 2022 Hyundai Tucson.
Driver Attention Warning, to help tired or distracted drivers maintain focus, as well as Rear Occupant Alert to notify the driver of the number of passengers in the vehicle come standard. Added capabilities to help ensure safety include Lane Following Assistant, Lane Keeping Assistant, and Rear View Monitor. Additional high-tech features include a digital key smartphone app that allows drivers to lock and unlock their vehicle using a compatible device.
For those who enjoy road trips and driving the open stretch of roads, Smart Cruise Control is a feature offered by Hyundai that uses advanced technology to detect when vehicles in front of you have stopped or decreased in speed, and adjusts your vehicle’s speed appropriately to maintain a safe distance.
With their compact SUV, Hyundai went into uncharted territory and used ingenuity to promote a modern aesthetic. There are sharp lines and creased panels on the body of the Tucson that make for a visually detailed design and differentiate the 2022 Tucson from others in its class.
As a moving piece of art, the sharp seams on the body integrate well to provide a techy look that few cars, and even fewer SUVs, have been able to achieve thus far. The new grille design toughened up the appearance and gives the Tucson a rugged look that clearly shows Hyundai took every detail into consideration when redesigning the Tucson.
Integrated daytime running lights and turn signals also turn black when the Tucson is disengaged and shut off. The taillights, with their triangular shape and sharp angles, add to the overall appeal of the exterior, maintain the chiseled look, and prove that SUVs can be as stylish and sporty as any car. LED lights help visibility at night and automatic headlamps come standard. Solar control front glass, also standard, protects the driver from harsh sun rays and can decrease glare.
As far as the engine goes, Hyundai has provided different options for customers to adjust to their driving needs and lifestyle. Standard on most trim levels is a 187 horsepower 2.5 liter 4-cylinder engine with an 8-speed automatic transmission and either front or all-wheel drive. Hyundai will also be offering a hybrid and plug-in hybrid models.
The hybrid houses an electric motor between a 1.6-liter turbo-charged 4-cylinder and a 6-speed automatic transmission. And all Hyundai Tucson hybrids come standard with Hyundai’s HTRAC all-wheel drive system. With the dual power, you can expect to save money on gas and decrease the overall cost of ownership.
With today’s technological advancements and ever-changing needs, Hyundai has adapted and created a vehicle that fits the modern driver. Innovation is a powerful force and when you sit behind the steering wheel of the new 2022 Hyundai Tucson, you are sitting in the driver’s seat of the future.
