2021 Hyundai Tucson Review

  • Smooth ride quality
  • Plenty of standard tech and safety features for the money
  • Roomy interior and comfortable front seats
  • Long warranty
  • Sluggish acceleration from the regular 2.5-liter engine
  • Touch-style center stack controls can be distracting to use
  • Hybrid can't match rivals on fuel economy
  • Fully redesigned for 2022
  • New engine lineup includes hybrid and plug-in hybrid models
  • Impressive list of standard in-car tech and driver aids
  • Kicks off the fourth Tucson generation

Hyundai has been revamping its lineup of SUVs as of late. Just about everything is a recent addition, including the extra-small Venue and three-row Palisade, or has been redesigned. Now, for 2022, it's the Tucson's turn. This is Hyundai's small SUV that competes against the likes of the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. It's historically played things safe and stuck to conservative styling conventions, but not the 2022 Tucson. Can an affordable SUV be avant-garde?

Now in its fourth generation, the all-new version is quite different with its distinctive cascading headlight design, squared wheel arches and bold creases on the bodywork. The interior is also more dynamic, with a center stack devoid of hard buttons and a shroudless digital instrument panel. Also new for 2022 is the availability of three powertrain options. There's a conventional gasoline engine as well as two hybrid options: a standard hybrid and a plug-in hybrid with up to 28 miles of electric-only range. But some things, like Hyundai's generous warranty and general good value for money, remain unchanged.

Overall, we think Hyundai's done a nice job with the new Tucson. The hybrid, in particular, stands out as a compelling pick for a small SUV. Read our Expert Rating below to get our in-depth take on the Tucson's hits and misses.

Rated for you by America’s best test team
The Hyundai Tucson delivers a lot of value for the money, providing a comfortable ride and helpful technology features. We also like its upscale-feeling cabin and roomy cargo space. Unfortunately it's dogged by a sluggish engine that has trouble keeping pace when the traffic speeds up. Still, the Tucson is a thoughtful small SUV.
Unfortunately the Tucson's engine struggles to get the SUV moving with authority. Around town and on the highway, it's OK to drive, but if you're in a hurry the sluggishness is apparent. The Tucson accelerated from 0 to 60 mph in 10.2 seconds during our testing, making it one of the slowest crossovers we've measured in some time.

The rest of the driving experience is unremarkable. We like the easy, direct steering and the way the Tucson remains composed around corners. The transmission upshifts smoothly, but downshifts can feel abrupt and crude when you quickly mash the gas.
The Tucson approaches luxury-level quality when it comes to comfort. It has a supple suspension that provides an excellent ride, and bumps and cracks in the road are absorbed very well. It's among the best rides in the class.

We found the front seats on our Limited trim test vehicle to be excellent. They featured plush and supportive cushions covered in nice material and provided good lateral support and power lumbar adjustments. We also appreciate the level of quiet and insulation provided while the Tucson's in motion. It keeps noise outside of the cabin out better than most rivals, and even when the wind kicks up you won't strain to hold a conversation or enjoy the radio.
Excellent ergonomics and an abundance of interior space make the Tucson's cabin a very pleasant place to be. The front seats offer plenty of room, and rear passengers will be able to stretch their legs or recline their seat. For drivers, it's easy to find a comfortable and commanding position, plus a large windscreen and thin pillars allow for great visibility.

We're less enthusiastic about the control arrangement. Nearly every feature is controlled through the touchscreen or flat, featureless buttons alongside it that offer no feedback to the touch. It would be nice to have a dial or controller of some kind for people who don't want to reach all the time. The screen is also prone to greasy smudge marks. There should be a better way.
The Tucson offers a sharp set of technology features that work quickly and feel ultra-modern at this price. Firstly, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone connectivity is standard and displays nicely on the available 10.25-inch touchscreen. If you prefer Hyundai's native system, the navigation is easy to follow thanks to clear directions and a vivid map that work well in tandem. Another strong point is the voice activation feature, which recognizes commands well and doesn't force you to follow specific prompts as strictly as some competitors.

We also like the Tucson's set of driver aids. The blind-spot warnings are helpful and the adaptive cruise control works great in bottleneck traffic. The front and rear parking sensors will help keep you out of trouble when parking, but their incessant beeping can become tiring.
You can toss plenty of stuff into the back of a Tucson. Its storage capacity of 38.7 cubic feet behind the rear seats is among the best for small SUVs. Fold down the rear seats and you've got 74.8 cubic feet at your disposal. The low liftover and nice flat floor should make it easy to stack up boxes on moving day or presents during the holidays. The cabin offers decent-sized spaces throughout to hold your small items. The cupholders can hold larger water bottles.

Got small children? Installing a child's seat is as easy as reaching between the rear cushions to locate the latches. The spacious back seat should provide plenty of room for even the most bulky rear-facing seats.
In all-wheel-drive guise, which is what we tested, the 2022 Tucson gets an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined (24 city/29 highway). This isn't bad, and our time behind the wheel returned similar numbers in mixed city and highway driving, indicating the rating holds up in real-world use. But the number falls short of the Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue when the Tucson's equipped with AWD. We would also hope for higher figures given the Tucson lacks much in the way of acceleration.
The Tucson's pricing is competitive for the class and generally lines up with what you'd pay for a Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4. But Hyundai does one-up the competition by giving you plenty of desirable features and excellent interior quality. The cabin design and materials are comfortable and interesting for the price and certainly a step above other compact crossover interiors. Hyundai's basic warranty of five years/60,000 miles and powertrain coverage of 10 years/100,000 miles also can't be beat. Overall, Tucson delivers excellent value at its price.
It's clear that Hyundai had fun building the Tucson — the expressive exterior design and lots of innovative tech features such as hidden headlights, interesting touchscreen menus and its remote-controlled parking system make that clear. Ultimately, though, these aspects come off as fancy icing on what is a pretty standard cake.

The Tucson is hamstrung by a sluggish engine that makes it feel like a chore to drive, and the transmission can be clunky unless driven for maximum efficiency. The Tucson stands out in a crowd, and there is a lot to like about its wealth of standard features. But it falls short of reaching fun-to-drive status in our book.

Which Tucson does Edmunds recommend?

The best value comes from the SEL trim. It gets you some desirable extras, such as blind-spot monitoring, over the base SE trim and still keeps the cost low. You can also customize it with a couple of extra option packages if you want. For the Tucson Hybrid, the Blue Hybrid is the SEL's equivalent.

Hyundai Tucson models

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson is available in seven trim levels with three engines offered. Four trim levels — SE, SEL, N Line and Limited — feature the conventional gasoline engine. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) are offered in three trims: Blue Hybrid, SEL Convenience Hybrid and Limited Hybrid. While the standard gasoline engine can be had with front- or all-wheel drive and uses an eight-speed automatic, the hybrids come standard with all-wheel drive and a six-speed automatic transmission.

Available engines:

  • 2.5-liter four-cylinder (187 horsepower)
  • Hybrid with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (227 total hp)
  • Plug-in hybrid with a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine (261 total hp)

SE
Starts you off with:

  • 17-inch alloy wheels
  • LED headlights
  • 8-inch infotainment touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone connectivity (with wireless connectivity)
  • Six-speaker audio system

The SE also comes with advanced driver aids such as:

  • Driver attention warning (issues an alert if sensors determine you are becoming fatigued)
  • Forward collision mitigation (warns you of an impending collision and applies the brakes in certain scenarios)
  • Lane keeping assist (steers the Tucson back into its lane if it begins to drift over the lane marker)
  • Rear-seat reminder (alerts you to check the rear seat before exiting the vehicle)

SEL
Adds luxury and tech features, such as:

  • Roof rails
  • Tinted rear windows
  • Proximity keyless entry with push-button start
  • Power-adjustable driver's seat
  • Heated front seats
  • Rear passenger vents
  • Heated side mirrors with integrated turn signals
  • Two USB outlets for rear passengers
  • Blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert (warns you if a vehicle is in your blind spot during a lane change or while in reverse)
  • Blind-spot intervention (automatically steers the car back into its lane if you try to change lanes while a car is in the vehicle's blind spot)
  • Adaptive cruise control (maintains a driver-set distance between the Hyundai and the car in front)

Convenience package
Available on with the SEL trim:

  • Hands-free liftgate
  • 19-inch wheels
  • Sunroof
  • Digital instrument panel
  • Wireless device charging pad
  • Ambient interior lighting
  • Auto-dimming interior rearview mirror
  • Leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob
  • Dual-zone climate control

Premium package
Adds to the Convenience package with:

  • Leather seating surfaces
  • Ventilated front seats
  • Bose premium audio system
  • Dark gray grille with unique LED lighting

N Line
Similar to the SEL trim but adds sporty touches, such as:

  • Special 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Unique exterior and interior trim
  • Sport front seats
  • Bose premium audio system

Limited
Builds off the SEL with Convenience and Premium packages, adding:

  • Panoramic sunroof
  • Dark chrome exterior trim
  • Upgraded LED headlights
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Paddle shifters
  • Power-adjustable front passenger seat
  • Driver's seat memory settings
  • Heated rear seats
  • 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen with navigation
  • Blind-spot camera (displays an image of the vehicle's blind spot in the instrument panel when you activate a turn signal)
  • Lane keeping system (makes minor steering corrections to help keep the vehicle centered in its lane)
  • Surround-view camera system (gives you a top-down view of the Tucson and its surroundings for tight parking situations)

For the Tucson Hybrid, the Blue Hybrid trim level is essentially the same as the SEL trim. The SEL Convenience trim level largely matches the non-hybrid SEL fitted with the Convenience package. Finally, the Limited Hybrid trim is similarly equipped as the standard Limited trim.

5/5 stars, Wow! Rav4 Prime vs CR-V Touring Hybrid vs Tucson
DesertRat,
Limited Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 6A)
I'm a long time Toyota guy and for the most part, their vehicles have not disappointed over the years. We recently went on the search for a new compact SUV and looked at the Rav4 Prime, CR-V Touring Hybrid, and the new Tucson Limited here in the US (both hybrid and non versions). 2021 Rav4 Prime - In fairness to the Rav4 Prime we tested, it just came off the truck when we drove it and it was not charged. So, it drove like a gas hybrid and only saw spurts of performance as a result of the regen. The ride was Ok, performance was adequate, road noise was a bit on the high side, and the interior just seemed dated and pieced together. 2021 CR-V Touring Hybrid - was impressive in almost all respects except the road noise during highway driving was significant. The infotainment system was a bit clutsy as well. Otherwise, it seemed quite refined and was our top choice at the time. But, we decided to wait for the 2022 Tucson (glad we did). 2022 Tucson Limited (gas version) - refined and does most things very well, but the performance is average. 2022 Tucson Limited Hybrid - Wow! What a difference between the two new Tucson models. Put this Hybrid into Sport Mode and it is fun to drive, simply leaving the others in the dust in terms of performance (no practical person would need more acceleration than this (it's not Tesla quick, but as quick as most would drive a Tesla). As for all other aspects, the Tucson Hybrid is hard to beat in almost every category. The interior is fantastic in all respects with the exception of the piano black and touchscreen controls that look nice now but likely a dust-collecting annoyance down the road. There are a few downsides to note: 1) no spare tire and that IMO is a significant oversight by Hyundai since it appears there's room for at least a donut spare. 2) for some reason that Hyundai won't publicly address, the 10.25 Infotainment screen on the higher end models does not support "wireless" Apple CarPlay and AndroidAuto (only wired support). However, that wireless feature is available on the lower end trims. So hopefully, there's a firmware update for this deficiency. We bought the Hybrid Limited in White w/ gray interior and couldn't be happier. I honestly don't know why Hyundai is even bothering making the gas version, given the small price difference. We did consider waiting for the PHEV version, but, liked this hybrid version so much we jumped on it. A few things to note on the Limited trim: the wipers are rain sensing and the passenger seat is full electric including up & down functions. The safety and tech on this vehicle is nearly insane and will take you some time to digest it all. Impressive. One other thing to note, all of the electrified versions of the Tucson (hybrid included) are made in Ulsan, South Korea (VIN beginning with "K"). Comparing the fit and finish of the Tucson's from the Alabama plant vs the Korea plant show better refinement on those rolling off the Ulsan assembly line, at least by my eyes as inspecting the reveal tolerances between body panels at my dealership. Given the tech, safety features, comfort, and performance of the new Tucson Hybrid, it's certainly worth the test drive if considering this class of SUV. If reliability proves positive over time, this Tucson is a game-changer in this class and hopefully inspires my friends at Toyota to significantly step up their game.
5/5 stars, Giant leap ahead of the 2021 Tucson
imnotmarvin,
SEL 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 8A)
I recently purchased a 2022 Tucson SEL Premium. This is my household's third Tucson; we had a 2017 SE and currently have a 2021 Value Edition. There are three notable differences (not counting the difference in appearance) compared to previous model years. First and maybe most important is the 2.5L engine. Finally this SUV has a suitable sized engine. The 2.0L that previously powered the Tucson underwhelming to say the least. While he 2.5L isn't going to put you back in your seat, it's going to get the job done merging onto the highway or pulling out in fast moving traffic. Second, the seats are far more comfortable than they've been in the past. Next to the underpowered engine of past model years, this was my biggest complaint. I don't know if Hyundai is doing focus groups but they must have been made aware of the seats because they've addressed them. I couldn't imagine a long road trip in the front seats prior to the 2022 but now I'm looking forward to them. Third, the backseat passengers got some leg room. If I'm not mistake the wheelbase is slightly longer this year and that extra length was gifted to backseat passengers. We have a few six footers in the family and packed a couple in the back seat this past weekend. There were no complaints, something we heard plenty of in the past. This one upgrade from previous model years really puts the Tucson up against it's larger sibling, the Sante Fe. I can't see spending more money on the Sante Fe at this point. All in all, I'm very pleased with the new 2022 Tucson. I wasn't sure I'd get a third one but after owning it for a couple of weeks, I can't imagine buying something else at the same price.
5/5 stars, 2022 HYBRID Tucson With LIMITED Trim For The Win!
Carol,
Limited Hybrid 4dr SUV AWD (1.6L 4cyl Turbo gas/electric hybrid 6A)
First of all, to address no spare- they had to do what they could to reduce the weight of the vehicle, and their focus group data revealed that less than 1% of 1% have ever used their spare. YES, its nice to have, but so are GREAT Mpg #'s! Second, i don't know too many ppl who WANT the passengers dinking around with the radio, no knob helps to keep their "paws off" For my OWN paws, there's a up/down & MUTE button right on my steering wheel : ) Only fault i couldfind is the incandesent bulbs & extremely low placement of turn signals/reverse lights....(its almost as if they 99 & 99% done and got to that point and said, "lets call it a day" and never came back to finish the design...lol This SUV does so many thing GREAT, and EVERYTHING else REALLY well! i even loved how the big H in rear window was super easy for my "tint guy" to slap on a piece of limo window tint, you no longer see the H...look so good without that badging : ) Between the 3/36 FREE maintenance, 3/36 Blue Link FREE subscription, 5/60 bumper to bumper/10 year powertrain AND 10 year on electric battery couple with the gazillion features (even some of which you can't get with ANY other vehicle- Blind Spot Camera View in Dash- looking at u Rav 4 : ) you CAN NOT go wrong with this version of the Tucson!!!!!
5/5 stars, Love This Car
Paula,
Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.5L 4cyl 8A)
This car has everything I ever wanted in a small SUV. I fell on love with this car back in Oct. of 2020 when Korea announced it was coming out. I finally purchased this car 2 weeks ago. I am not disappointed at all. I love the center console on the Limited model. It is so great to have a 10.3 inch screen. I never owned a car that allows you to have a split screen. I am able to see what is playing on the radio and see the map on the same screen. This car allows you to voice commands, from making phone calls, to turning the radio station on, to navigating to your local McDonalds. Just say the word and the car does what you want. There are also buttons on the steering wheel to change music stations, and volume. Some reviews complained there were no buttons for radio or volume. Not true. I also love that when you put on your directional, the camera shows you the blind spot on that side. The 360 camera is so clear and large on the screen. Pulling into a parking spot is so easy with the front camera. My model comes with a large panoramic sunroof which brightens the car, and brings in soft breezes when open. This car has memory seats, which makes it easy for two different drivers. The front seats have heated seats and cool seats for summer driving. The rear seats are heated and recline. The tailgate automatically opens if you stand behind it with your packages. There is so much more to write about You will not be sorry. Go out and order your 2022 Tuscon Limited now.

Hyundai Tucson vs. the competition

2021 Hyundai Tucson

2021 Hyundai Tucson

2021 Ford Escape

2021 Ford Escape

Hyundai Tucson vs. Ford Escape

Like the Tucson, the Ford Escape is available with a conventional gasoline engine as well as hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions. We like the Escape's roomy interior and smooth ride, and the hybrid version is more fuel-efficient than the Tucson's hybrid version. The Escape's handling does leave a lot to be desired and the Tucson is a slightly better value for the money.

Compare Hyundai Tucson & Ford Escape features 

Hyundai Tucson vs. Honda CR-V

Available in both hybrid and non-hybrid versions, the CR-V is our small SUV class leader. With clever interior storage options, a roomy interior and athletic handling, it is very well rounded. But the hybrid version of the CR-V is a bit disappointing since it's not particularly fuel-efficient. And we think the Tucson's infotainment system is much better than the Honda's.

Compare Hyundai Tucson & Honda CR-V features 

Hyundai Tucson vs. Toyota RAV4

Another small SUV with a conventional gasoline and two hybrid variants, the RAV4 brings a lot of practicality, as well as strong fuel economy, to the class. And while it might not be the main reason to buy a plug-in hybrid, the RAV4 Prime is downright fast! But all RAV4s suffer from a noisy, unrefined engine and don't handle particularly well.

2022 Hyundai Tucson First Impressions

What is the Tucson?

You won't often find truly daring design in the small SUV class. Vehicles in this segment typically prioritize utility and comfort over handsome looks or thrilling performance. The redesigned 2022 Hyundai Tucson asks: "What if you could have everything above and more?"

The Tucson has historically hewn to conservative styling conventions. Now in its fourth generation, the new version is quite different, with a cascading front light signature, squared wheel arches and bold creases on the bodywork. The interior is also more dynamic, with a center stack devoid of hard buttons and a shroudless digital instrument panel. An avant-garde SUV? It's happening, and it'll be in showrooms by the spring of 2021.

How does the Tucson drive?

Hyundai is going all-in on the new Tucson's powertrains. Most models will be driven by the same 2.5-liter four-cylinder that powers the recently redesigned Sonata sedan. It produces 187 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque in the Tucson, and it's matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Acceleration for normal driving is adequate, but you might find it a little lacking when you need a burst of speed, such as when making a highway pass. The transmission could use a bit more refinement as well; we noticed a couple of weird lurches while we were driving through parking lots. Also, the shift programming for the Sport mode could be more aggressive.

There will also be hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, using a turbocharged 1.6-liter engine as the primary source of power. In the hybrid, the combined output between the engine and electric motor stands at about 226 hp and 258 lb-ft. The plug-in hybrid is a bit more powerful; Hyundai estimates the entire system makes 260 hp. Hyundai also says the plug-in can travel up to 28 miles on electricity alone when fully charged.

How comfortable is the Tucson?

The new Tucson is more comfortable than the last generation. The driver's and front passenger seats are supple and supportive, and occupants have a good amount of room to stretch out. The second row has good cushion padding and a wide bench that should remain appealing for four people over long distances. The 3 inches of extra rear legroom in the new Tucson and the reclining rear seatbacks should give most people enough adjustability to find a comfy spot.

The Tucson's suspension absorbs most road imperfections without feeling overly floaty. This is a small SUV that's easy to maneuver around town. You won't feel tired after riding in the Tucson — it's very much like a mini Hyundai Palisade.

How's the Tucson's interior?

The 2022 Tucson starts with the upscale design concepts that debuted on the Sonata and takes them even further. The two share a similarly styled transmission selector cluster, but the rest of the Tucson's interior looks decidedly more tech-heavy. This vibe is highlighted by a frameless digital instrument panel, a buttonless center stack and 64-color ambient lighting.

Even if you don't select a model with all the bells and whistles, the curved lines that continue from the door to dash give the front a dual cockpit feel. While Tucsons in other markets will be available in two wheelbase lengths, we'll only get the longer one in the U.S. The outgoing model is fairly roomy in both rows, but the 2022 version is even more accommodating thanks to the 3-inch bump in legroom and slight headroom increase for both rows.

How's the Tucson's tech?

The new Tucson aims to be the most high-tech small SUV on the market. A standard 8-inch touchscreen packs wireless capabilities for both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration. A snappy and responsive 10.25-inch screen is available on upper trim levels. And to free up purse or pocket space, the Tucson allows you to use your phone as a key. This feature, however, only works with Android phones equipped with near-field communication technology.

The Tucson comes standard with several advanced driving aids, including lane keeping assist, lane centering assist, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection. The available blind-spot monitor can now tap the brakes if you start to enter a lane occupied by another car. It also now features a blind-spot camera when you flick the turn signal, and the system can stop the Tucson if a car or pedestrian is crossing your path while in reverse. Adaptive cruise control, a 360-degree parking camera system and automated remote parking (Hyundai's Smart Park feature) are available in upper trims. The Limited trim we drove had everything, and the tech worked seamlessly.

How economical is the Tucson?

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson's standard gas engine returns an EPA-estimated 29 mpg combined (26 city/33 highway) for front-wheel-drive versions and 26 mpg combined (24 city/29 highway) for the all-wheel-drive. The Hybrid Blue, which is the base hybrid and comes standard with AWD, is EPA-estimated to return 38 mpg combined, while the upper trim hybrids that come loaded with more standard features get 37 mpg combined. Information for the plug-in hybrid was not available at the time of this writing.

Fuel economy is competitive in the segment for the standard gas engine but trends toward the lower end of the class in combined mpg. The hybrid, with 38 mpg combined, is effectively stalemated with Honda's CR-V, and the Toyota RAV4 remains the class leader at 40 mpg.

EdmundsEdmunds says

The Tucson has always been a solid pick in the small SUV segment, even though its styling was a little anonymous. The redesigned 2022 Hyundai Tucson ventures in a bold new direction, complete with an expressive exterior, a comfortable and upscale cabin, a range of powertrain choices, and high-tech safety features. Just be aware that the standard 2.5-liter engine feels adequate at best.

Should I lease or buy a 2022 Hyundai Tucson?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
