    2022 Hyundai Tucson Limited AWD Hybrid Review

     

    This week I bring you the all-new 2022 Hyundai Tucson Limited Hybrid AWD -- a 5 passenger SUV with distinctive style and impressive technology, not to mention great fuel economy.

    Exterior


    The redesigned Hyundai Tucson is no wallflower. It’s designed with strong lines and angles and there’s a really 3-dimensional, chiseled look to the profile.   The lightning signature both in the front and rear makes a striking impression.

    Powertrain


    Under the hood you find a 1.6L Turbo-GDI inline 4-cylinder hybrid system with a combined 226-horsepower. (A plug-in model will offer an estimated 261-horsepower.)  It’s mated to a HEV-tuned six-speed automatic transmission. Also, for the first time in a Hyundai SUV, the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models offer standard HTRAC AWD capability. 

    Interior


    The Tucson’s 5-passenger two-toned interior is modern with a mix of well-integrated textures.  There is a lot of glossy black especially around the center console area. You’ll find silver trim as well and the hardware for the push-button transmission, drive mode selector, parking brake and auto hold on the center console looks premium.   A large sweeping soft-touch dash curves inward on the passenger side. Hyundai’s incorporated fabric inserts on part of the dash and door panels.

    Leather-trimmed 8-way power adjustable front seats feature three-level heated and ventilated seats, the latter of which was a fantastic feature to have in the Texas summer heat.  The center console is raised in an seemingly ergonomic way to support your hand.
