Vehicle Overview

Tarbox Hyundai is your local Hyundai dealer serving North Kingstown Providence Johnston Rhode Island, and we are thrilled to announce the arrival of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson. Hyundai has completely redesigned the Tucson for the 2022 model year. While the Tucson has long been among the popular options in its class and has provided consumers excellent value, it has never been particularly bold. That changes with the 2022 model, which features an aggressively modern exterior aesthetic, an interior that automotive journalists call daring, a wealth of standard equipment and multiple powertrains to choose from, including two hybrid options. Join us as we explore all these updates in our Rhode Island review.

North Kingstown RI - 2022 Hyundai Tucson's Overview

Exterior - 2022 Hyundai Tucson

In order to accommodate the additional roominess, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson had to get a bit longer. The wheelbase was increased from 105.1 to 108.5 inches, and the overall length was extended from 176.4 to 182.3. The model is also about half an inch taller and wider. None of these changes dramatically effect the convenience of the vehicle and put it more in line with its top competitors. The muscular modern design is emphasized by hard edges, geometric angles and subtle use of chrome and black accents. Standard equipment includes 17-inch alloy wheels and LED headlamps and running lamps.

Interior - 2022 Hyundai Tucson in North Kingstown RI

Many have used the word daring to describe the interior design, which we think is because the concepts found here are often reserved for executive sedans and the like. Sleek curves form a very modern dual cockpit. The digital instrumentation is frameless and buttonless. The landscape-oriented touchscreen is flush and integrated into the dashboard, and below it, you will find a push-button shifter. But is not about all wow. There have been practical upgrades as well. The overall passenger volume is 108.2 cubic feet, which is 6 more cubes that the previous generation. The dedicated cargo area measures 38.5 cubic feet, which is almost 8 cubes more than the outgoing model and puts the Tucson among best in class.

Powertrain - Hyundai Tucson specs in North Kingstown RI

The powertrain lineup will be one of the more exciting aspects of this 2022 Hyundai Tucson review due to all the options. The standard setup will feature a 190-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Tucson will also get an N Line edition, but specifications are not yet finalized, and whether it will get a 300-hp turbocharged version of that four-cylinder is unconfirmed. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid will both feature a 1.6-liter turbo four along with an electric motor and battery pack. The hybrid makes 226 hp, and the PHEV makes 260 hp.

Safety - 2022 Hyundai Tucson dealer

Family-oriented drivers reading this Rhode Island review will be pleased to know that Hyundai has once again made safety a focal point for the Tucson. All models with feature SmartSense as standard equipment, and this group includes forward collision and pedestrian detection, automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring, lane departure mitigation and so forth.
