Hyundai likes to give each of its five crossover suvs a unique look; the design of the 2022 Tucson won't be forgotten anytime soon. Lurking in the upper outer edges of the new Tucson’s segmented parametric grille are 10 LED daytime driving lights that, when illuminated, create a wing-shaped light signature like nothing else on the road. It’s an attention grabber Hyundai is counting on to help it stand out in a crowded SUV field.
For the 2022 model year, the North American version of the all-new fourth-generation Tucson receives a 3.4-inch wheelbase stretch and another 6.1 inches nose to tail, substantially boosting passenger and cargo space. That puts Hyundai’s best-selling SUV head to head with the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Nissan Rogue.
The roomier, jazzier five-passenger 2022 Hyundai Tucson adds a new sport-trim N Line to a lineup that also includes a gas-powered base SE, a well-equipped SEL, and a range-topping Limited, all available with a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. Also new for 2022 are gas-electric and plug-in versions of the Tucson, covered in a separate review.
Including the $1,185 destination charge, the 2022 Tucson prices are $26,135 for the base SE, $27,685 for the well-equipped SEL, $33,785 for the sporty N Line, and $35,885 for the top-of-the-line Limited. All-wheel drive is $1,400 extra on any model.
