This week I bring you the all-new 2022 Hyundai Tucson Limited Hybrid AWD -- a 5 passenger SUV with distinctive style and impressive technology, not to mention great fuel economy.


The redesigned Hyundai Tucson is no wallflower. It’s designed with strong lines and angles and there’s a really 3-dimensional, chiseled look to the profile.  The lighting signature both in the front and rear makes a striking impression.


Under the hood you find a 1.6L Turbo-GDI inline 4-cylinder hybrid system with a combined 226-horsepower. (A plug-in model will offer an estimated 261-horsepower.)  It’s mated to a HEV-tuned six-speed automatic transmission. Also, for the first time in a Hyundai SUV, the hybrid and plug-in hybrid models offer standard HTRAC AWD capability. 


The Tucson’s 5-passenger two-toned interior is modern with a mix of well-integrated textures.  There is a lot of glossy black especially around the center console area. You’ll find silver trim as well and the hardware for the push-button transmission, drive mode selector, parking brake and auto hold on the center console looks premium.   A large sweeping soft-touch dash curves inward on the passenger side. Hyundai’s incorporated fabric inserts on part of the dash and door panels.

Leather-trimmed 8-way power adjustable front seats feature three-level heated and ventilated seats, the latter of which was a fantastic feature to have in the Texas summer heat.  The center console is raised in an seemingly ergonomic way to support your hand.
