2022 Hyundai Tucson Review

The Tucson is one of Hyundai’s best selling SUVs, and there are countless reasons why. It looks great, drives well, and comes with an array of options and features, including all-wheel drive, highway driving assist, and hybrid and plugin hybrid drivetrains. The following is Van Horn Automotive Group’s review of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson, written by an employee owner.


Bold Look

Let’s start with the exterior. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson is definitely designed to stand out from its competitors, like the Subaru Crosstrek, Toyota C-HR, and Honda HR-V. The body lines on the Tuscan create a unique geometric design that is exclusive to Hyundai vehicles.


The sleek headlights blend in well with the grill. There are 4 daytime running lights on each side of the grill to complement the headlight and give the Hyundai Tucson a uniform look.


The taillights on the updated Hyundai Tucson compliment the headlights and body lines of this crossover SUV nicely. There are two fin shaped tail lights on each side of the vehicle that are connected by a narrow light that goes across the width of the trunk hatch. An oversized Hyundai logo placed at the bottom of the rear window completes the look.


Hyundai has a variety of wheel designs for the Tucson. All available wheel options look very sporty and match the geometric body lines of the vehicle. Wheels options vary by trim level.




Most are pleasantly surprised with the interior of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson. It is well refined with a variety of different materials that make the Tuscan much more luxurious than other SUVs in this price range.

All Digital

The all digital gauge cluster and touchscreen display are very easy to use and add an additional refined element to the Hyundai Tucson. The center touch screen is complemented with touch buttons and controls. There are no physical buttons on the center console’s touch screen and climate control sections. This is exclusive to Hyundai for vehicles at this price point.

Uniformed Look

Trim work wraps around the touch screen and climate controls. That same trim line is continued to the vent on the dash and then flows into the doors, making a uniform and complete look.


The interior of the Hyundai Tucson is very spacious for the size of the vehicle. Another bonus that adds to the luxury of this SUV is how quiet the cabin is. There is very little road noise when driving.



The 2022 Hyundai Tucson comes with three engine options. A standard 2.5 liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder, a 1.6 liter turbo hybrid 4-cylinder, and a 1.6 liter turbo 4-cylinder plugin hybrid engine. The 2.5 liter option offers up to 187 horsepower. The 1.6 turbo hybrid offers 227 horsepower. The plugin hybrid engine has 261 horsepower.


There are two transmission options for the 2022 Hyundai Tucson: an 8 speed automatic with the 2.5 liter engine, and the 1.6 turbo engine options come with 6 speed automatic.

All Wheel Drive

All trim levels come in front wheel and all wheel drive variations. With Wisconsin winters, we recommend the all wheel drive option.


High Rated

The 2022 Tucson received a 4 star overall NHTSA safety rating and was awarded the 2022 Top Safety Pick by IIHS. Hyundai has loaded the Tucson with more safety features than you can think of.

SmartSense Features

Hyundai has equipped the Tucson with a standard SmartSense safety suite. SmartSense includes the following features.

    • Forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection
    • Blind-spot collision-avoidance assist
    • Blind-spot view monitor
    • Lane following assist
    • Lane keeping assist
