2022 Hyundai Tucson vs 2021 Hyundai Tucson
2022 Hyundai Tucson Overview
If you want to purchase or lease a new crossover that is not as small as the Santa Fe or Venue but not as large as the Palisade, then the Tucson is an excellent option. It continues to be one of the best-selling vehicles at Arapahoe Hyundai, and our customers have an interesting decision to make now that the 2022 Hyundai Tucson has arrived. This is a more dramatic comparison than is usual when comparing a new model year to an outgoing edition, and the reason for that is the introduction of the fourth generation. Updates include a new exterior style, a redesigned cabin, additional amenities and more.
Exterior – Hyundai Dealer serving Centennial CO
We have to begin our 2022 Hyundai Tucson vs 2021 Hyundai Tucson comparison with the exterior because this is the change that most people will notice first. Hyundai has always been aggressive when it comes to exterior designs, and 2022 Hyundai Tucson may be its boldest yet. Highlights include pronounced hard-angled wheel arches, a sloped roofline and cascading headlamps. Hyundai has also expanded the wheelbase by almost 3.5 inches and the overall length by almost 6 inches. The 2021 Hyundai Tucson was just shy of 15 feet whereas the new model is just a tad longer than it. Hyundai has also made it a bit taller and wider and has increased the ground clearance by almost 2 inches!
Interior – 2022 Hyundai Tucson in Centennial CO
Two features that have made the 2021 Hyundai Tucson such a great success are roominess and ergonomics, and that does not change with the 2022 Hyundai Tucson. In fact, ergonomics was an emphasis, and Hyundai engineers worked hard to ensure that the longer wheelbase translated to more passenger and cargo space. Overall passenger volume was increased by 6 cubic feet. Front headroom was increased to 40.1 inches. Front legroom is 41.4 inches, and rear legroom is 41.3 inches, which is an increase of about 3 inches. Another impressive change is that the dedicated cargo area has been increased by about 8 cubic feet all the way up to 38.7 cubes, which is now among best in class.
Hyundai Tucson Mechanical specs
Many of the questions we have received at our location serving Centennial Denver Littleton Aurora concern the new powertrains, and there is a lot of understandable excitement on that front. A 227-horsepower hybrid powertrain and a 261-hp plug-in hybrid powertrain are available for the first time ever, and we expect the hybrid and PHEV models to be a great success based on consumer trends. Both hybrids have a six-speed automatic transmission that sends power to all four wheels. For those who prefer a traditional powertrain, it has been carried over from the previous generation. The gas models have a 187-hp four-cylinder under the hood. Hyundai pairs it with an eight-speed automatic, and you have the choice of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.
Safety – 2022 Hyundai Tucson dealer
Not much has changed when it comes to safety. The 2021 Hyundai Tucson had a reputation for being one of the safest vehicles in its segment, and the 2022 model will continue that tradition. In fact, it has already earned a five-star overall rating from the NHTSA and Top Safety Pick+ recognition from the IIHS. Hyundai has made enhancements to the infotainment system. The vehicle now comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen standard, and you have the option of a 10.3-inch touchscreen. Hyundai has also expanded the standard and optional driver-assistance technologies, including a blind-spot intervention system.
