2022 Hyundai Tucson for Sale in Fairfield, CT
These are exciting times for Hyundai, now that some eagerly anticipated redesigns have been released. Since its 2004 debut, the Tucson has been a popular model for those who want a utility vehicle that’s neither too big nor too small. The Hyundai engineers who worked on this redesign left no stone unturned, and the result is that a great crossover has been made even better. The 2022 Tucson has a daring new look both inside and out, and with its state-of-the-art connectivity technology and safety features, it’s sure to be another winner. There will also be hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and N Line variants, which we’ll cover on their own pages.
Aesthetic changes come with any redesign, and the Tucson has indeed made a physical departure from its previous generation. It’s longer, wider, and taller, yielding 108.2 cubic feet of passenger space and total cargo volume of 80.3 cu. ft. Its appearance is more chiseled and aggressive, flaunting restyled daytime running lights and taillights, plus a new chrome strip that extends across the roofline to the C-pillar. The grille has grown, too, and it shows off a more modern look. Around back, the rear wiper is now concealed beneath the spoiler.
The new Tucson’s cabin presents a refreshed dash that wraps into the doors. Besides looking minimalist and clean, it provides a more open view of the road than the prior incarnation did. Looking to improve the overall cabin atmosphere, Hyundai’s engineers devised the new Multi-Air Mode system that softens the climate control’s airflow. The wireless smartphone charge pad has also been made better with a built-in fan to juice up devices faster without overheating. The standard infotainment system comes with new voice recognition software and expanded capabilities for controlling the rear hatch, heated steering wheel, and heated/ventilated seats.
The three trim levels (SE, SEL, and Limited) of the ’22 Tucson get the same powertrain: a 187 hp 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is the default, but all-wheel drive is available. A properly equipped Tucson can tow up to 2,000 pounds. According to EPA listings, all three trims achieve 26 mpg around town and 33 mpg on the highway with FWD. With AWD, they get 24 city/29 highway.
The SE has automatic LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, keyless entry, a rearview camera with dynamic parking guidance, USB ports, two 12-volt power outlets (one in front and one in the cargo area), a 60/40 split fold-down and reclining rear seatback with an armrest and cupholders, and a dual-level cargo floor. The SEL adds LED taillights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rear privacy glass, front aero wipers, roof side rails, push-button ignition, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, second row USB ports, and rear air vents.
The Limited looks even more sophisticated with its blacked-out grille and other exterior elements. It also gets a panoramic roof, projector-type LED headlights, premium LED daytime running lights, rain-sensing wipers, a class-exclusive hands-free/gesture-free liftgate, class-exclusive Hyundai Digital Key (which lets your smartphone act as the vehicle’s key fob), leather upholstery, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, position memory for the driver’s seat, ventilated front seats, voice-controlled air conditioning with capacitive-touch switches and Mutli-Air Mode, a heated steering wheel, paddle shifters, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, a wireless smartphone charge pad, a 10.25-inch hoodless digital instrument cluster, heated rear outboard seats, LED interior lighting, and ambient interior lighting with 64 different color options. Many of these features are available for the SEL through the Convenience Package or the Premium Package.
Safety and Technology
All trims come with Hyundai’s Smart Sense suite of active driver aids. In the SE, the list includes forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, automatic high beams, rear occupant alert, and driver attention warning. The SEL adds cyclist and junction turning detection to the forward collision-avoidance assist system, as well as blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, and safe exit warning. The Limited gets the full treatment with front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera system, a blind-spot view monitor, highway driving assist, navigation-based adaptive cruise control with curve control, an advanced rear occupant alert system (available for the SEL through Convenience Package), and remote smart parking assist.
The SE has the base infotainment system, which gets an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and HD radio. The SEL gains satellite radio and Blue Link Connected Car Services. The range-topping Limited gets these upgrades: a 10.25-inch touchscreen (which changes the smartphone integration to the plug-in variety), integrated navigation, and a high-end Bose audio system. The Bose audio system is available for the SEL with the Premium Package.
