2022 Hyundai Tucson - Now Available in Langley
The Hyundai Tucson is the company's most successful entrant in the compact SUV market, enticing savvy drivers with its excellent combination of quality engineering and well-equipped interior. And while previous models have sold in great numbers, Hyundai clearly intends to boost success even further with a new major update of the vehicle. The latest 2022 Hyundai Tucson is now available at our Langley dealership, and here's why it's set to stay at the head of the compact crossover pack.
Dramatic New Looks
The depth of the model update is clear from a single glance at the exterior. For a compact SUV the Tucson has an imposing appearance, with the large front grille and swept-back headlights giving an almost waspish appearance, while the large wheels and chunky rear end give the car a reassuring heft. In a Canadian market that's full of anonymous, generic SUVs, the Tucson's stylings stand dramatically out from the crowd.
Powerful Engine Choices
As standard, the 2022 Tucson is fitted with an impressive 2.5L four-cylinder gas engine pushing out 187 horsepower and 178lb-ft of torque, an ample amount of power for a compact SUV. The output is passed through an eight-speed automatic transmission to either front-wheel or all-wheel drive, providing smooth acceleration that's perfect for daily urban driving duties but also fully at home cruising the highway. However, that's not the end of the powertrain story. New for 2022 is an available hybrid option which pairs a 1.6L turbo gas engine with an electric motor, creating a combined output of 226 horsepower and 265lb-ft of torque. The transmission on this model is a six-speed automatic optimized for the low-rpm torque provided by the electric motor, and feeds all-wheel drive as standard. This new hybrid powertrain delivers all the benefits of a powerful turbo gas engine, but pushes the fuel consumption down to an excellent rating of 6.2L / 100km combined, with a forthcoming plugin hybrid (PHEV) model set to reduce fuel costs even further.
Get behind the Tucson's wheel and the upscale feel of the interior is immediately obvious. From the wraparound dash format to the touch-sensitive digital gauge cluster fitted as standard, the overall impression is of a high-end vehicle that belies the Tucson's affordable price. The standard infotainment touchscreen is a generous 8.8" in size, and runs both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto for seamless smartphone integration. Trading up to the 10.3" touchscreen also brings in-built navigation, while both Wi-Fi hotspot functionality and SiriusXM satellite radio are available options.
Advanced Active Safety and Driver Assist Systems
But the impressive technology doesn't end with the infotainment systems. The Tucson boasts an extensive suite of active safety and driver assist systems, with key highlights including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warnings, lane centring and keep assist, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.
