With the 2022 Hyundai Tucson, extra stuff and style don’t cost (much) extra
Your 101-grade economics professor was right: there really is no such thing as free lunch. Take the 2022 Hyundai Tucson, for example. It’s bigger, more elegant, and has more features than the model it replaces. And guess what? It is also more expensive than its ancestor.
Do you see what you get?
With a base price of $ 26,135, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson SE entry-level sticker costs $ 1,250 more than its 2021 counterpart. However, at those additional costs, you get an 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment display (one inch larger than before), LED headlights with automatic high beam and a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with 187 hp (up to 26 horses from the old 2.0-liter engine). Liters) and the sharp-edged goods mentioned above.
Upgrade to the $ 27,685 Tucson SEL, and the compact SUV comes with additional kits like heated front seats, a blind spot monitoring system, a proximity key, and additional cruise control.
Do you need a little more luck? Then check out the $ 31,785 Tucson N Line, which sports more aggressive exterior decor, custom 19-inch wheels, and a massive 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster. Opt for the $ 35,885 Limited and your Tucson has a standard 10.3-inch touchscreen infotainment display, built-in navigation system, panoramic sunroof, surround view monitor, front and rear parking sensors, heated one Steering wheel and heated rear seats.
Like the SE, the SEL, the N Line and the Limited are equipped as standard with the same 187 hp 2.5-liter engine, which transmits power to the front wheels via an eight-speed automatic. All-wheel drive is a $ 1,400 option across the board.
Hyundai also offers the 2022 Tucson in gasoline-electric hybrid and plug-in gasoline-electric hybrid forms. While the brand is keeping an eye on the prices of the latter setup, it isn’t holding back the former. As the name suggests, the Tucson Hybrid is based on a combination of gasoline and power sources, in this case a 1.6-liter four-cylinder with a turbocharger and an electric motor, which together generate a peak power of 227 hp. All-wheel drive is standard.
Choose the entry-level Tucson Hybrid Blue and you’ll see a bill for $ 30,235. Like the gas-powered Tucson SEL, the Tucson Hybrid Blue comes standard with heated front seats, a blind spot monitoring system, a proximity key and additional cruise control. The $ 32,835 hybrid SEL apparently complements the SEL’s standard $ 2,600 convenience package, which includes a hands-free tailgate, sunroof, 10.3-inch digital instrument cluster, and dual automatic climate control. Finally, the $ 38,535 Tucson Hybrid Limited brings the high-end features of the gas-powered Tucson Limited to the gasoline-electric hybrid model.
