After giving the smaller Venue and its hot-selling Telluride a complete redesign for the 2022 model year, Hyundai has moved to provide the small Tucson more appealing traits. And poised to compete against already remarkable models in its class, the boldly styled 2022 Tucson addresses some of the shortcomings in its outgoing model. If there’s ever a time to lease a Tucson, leasing the 2022 Hyundai Tucson AWD is much compelling now.
The all-new fourth generation of this Hyundai’s compact SUV looks and feels different from other Tucson. It offers more power, spacious cabin, comfort, and an array of upscale features than any previous model, making the 2022 Tucson AWD the best Tucson any shopper should lease in NY.
Although the new Tucson AWD offers a hybrid model like most of its close rivals, it easily distances itself from the crowd with a slight distinction. Unlike most of its rivals, the hybrid powertrain of the new Tucson SUV is turbocharged, which Hyundai claimed will deliver an electric range of 32 miles and an improved fuel economy over the outgoing model.
Engine And Performance
A 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 187 horsepower and 178 pound-feet of torque powers the 2022 Tucson AWD. This engine is hooked to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Both the 2022 Tucson Hybrid and plug-in hybrid models will come with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four. Hyundai claims this turbo-four will combine with an electric motor to produce 226 horsepower in the hybrid powertrain. The same powertrain will give 261-horsepower in the plug-in hybrid. And both of the 2022 Tucson’s variants will come with AWD as standard and pair with a six-speed automatic transmission.
While the nonhybrid all-new Tucson AWD provides enough power for city cruising and taking on the freeway, the more powerful plug-in hybrid and hybrid models make this compact SUV feel a lot quicker. Generally, the Tucson AWD is lively with crisp handling, responsive steering, eager acceleration, and refined ride quality.
Compared to most nonhybrid compact SUVs, the 2022 Tucson AWD has impressive fuel economy numbers, with an EPA estimated rating of 24 mpg city and 29 mpg highway. However, its 37 mpg city and 36 mpg highway for the Hybrid models is not so astounding in its class.
Step inside the new Tucson AWD cabin, and you’d feel you cheated Hyundai for having such an elegant and premium cabin at its price. Its cabin is well styled and generously outfitted with premium materials, soft-touch surfaces, and a swath of desirable tech niceties. Its clean-cut styled dashboard sports a digital instrument panel.
This compact SUV easily outperforms most SUVs in its segment when it comes to passenger and cargo space. It seats five people in its comfortable and spacious cabin that muffles wind and road noise to deliver a quiet interior.
