2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid for Sale in Springfield, MA
Redesigns are always exciting, especially when it’s one of the automaker’s best sellers. Hyundai put a lot of thought into making over the Tucson, its perennially popular compact crossover, with a lot of that influenced by the company’s Sensuous Sportiness design identity. It’s understandable that the first thing you’d notice is the 2022 Tucson’s fresh look, dominated by cutting-edge lighting design that includes LED daytime running lights hidden within a dominant grille. But it’s not the only new development – not by a long shot. The biggest part of this new Tucson generation is the inclusion of a hybrid powertrain. According to Hyundai, adding this nameplate to their hybrid lineup is a giant step toward their goal of an entirely eco-powertrain approach.
It’s hard to resist standard all-wheel drive, loads of standard technology, and a gas-electric hybrid powertrain that yields up to 38 miles per gallon. Those who need more reasons should take note that the 2022 Tucson Hybrid also comes with 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary maintenance, which covers routine oil changes, tire rotations, and multi-point inspections. That along with Hyundai’s legendary 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty is putting this green-minded compact SUV on a lot of drivers’ short list.
Trims, Powertrain and Fuel Economy
The 2022 Tucson Hybrid is presented in three trim levels: Blue, SEL Convenience, and Limited. Their hybrid system marries a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine and an electric motor, which produce a combined 226 hp. The other member of this hybrid powertrain is a six-speed automatic transmission; as mentioned, every Tucson Hybrid gets an all-wheel drivetrain.
This compact SUV can tow a maximum of 2,000 pounds with trailer brakes and 1,650 lb. without trailer brakes. The Blue is the most fuel-efficient, achieving an EPA-estimated 38 mpg in the city and 38 mpg on the highway. The SEL Convenience and Limited weigh a tad more, thanks to their additional standard equipment, and so their numbers tick down to 37 city/36 highway. One significant advantage of the ’22 Tucson Hybrid is its regenerative braking feature, captures braking energy to store as electric power, incrementally recharging the battery.
Notable Features by Trim
The ’22 Tucson Hybrid certainly doesn’t skimp on amenities. The Blue gets automatic LED headlights and daytime running lights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rear privacy glass, roof side rails, keyless entry and ignition, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, dual front- and second-row USB ports, two 12-volt power outlets (one up front and one in the cargo area), a rearview camera with parking guidance, dual-zone automatic climate control, steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters, a 60/4split fold-down and reclining rear seatback, and a dual-level cargo-area floor.

Safety and Technology

Every trim also issues a great slate of connectivity features. The Blue and SEL Convenience have an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD and satellite radio, Blue Link Connected Car Services, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. The Limited gains a 10.25-inch touchscreen, which changes the smartphone integration to plug-in.
