New Hyundai 2022 Hyundai Tucson PHEV for Sale in Springfield, MA
The ultra-versatile 2022 Hyundai Tucson Plug-in Hybrid (PHEV) has officially arrived, and it’s every bit as impressive as we expected. This best-of-both-worlds version of the appealing compact crossover is not only remarkably efficient and convenient to own, but it’s also seriously good-looking and fun to drive. While it’s based on the redesigned gasoline-only version, which showcases the automaker’s new Sensuous Sportiness design identity, the PHEV uniquely represents the future of Hyundai’s full-spectrum, eco-powertrain approach to driving. Hybrids – and especially PHEVs – are shaping the auto industry. This is especially true of the new Tucson PHEV, since it comes with both a potent and efficient powertrain, high-end features, and a distinctive, modern style. What’s more, buyers will get 3 years/36,000 miles of complimentary, factory-scheduled maintenance for services such as oil and filter changes, tire rotations, and multipoint inspections. This is a rare perk among automakers, as is Hyundai’s already industry-leading warranty coverage of 10 years/100,000 miles.
Trims, Powertrain, and Efficiency
Buyers have a choice of two trims with the Tucson PHEV: SEL and Limited. Their plug-in hybrid powertrain consists of a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine, an electric motor, and a 360-volt lithium-ion polymer battery. Together, they produce a total system output of 261 hp and 258 lb.-ft. of torque. The new Tucson PHEV also has a standard all-wheel drivetrain and a six-speed automatic transmission. With trailer brakes, the ’22 Tucson PHEV can tow up to 2,000 pounds. Without trailer brakes, towing capacity maxes out at 1,650 lb.
According to the EPA, the SEL and Limited have an all-electric range of 33 miles and return a combined city/highway rating of 35 miles per gallon. With the 240V charger, the Tucson PHEV can reach a full charge in just under two hours. For added convenience, the Bluelink mobile app has Charge Indicators and Charge Scheduling features, allowing you to reenergize your Tucson PHEV during off-peak hours when electric rates are lower. Regenerative braking also adds incrementally to the electric range kinetic energy created through braking or downhill driving is harvested and stored in the battery.
A blend of basic and upscale defines the SEL’s standard features, with the likes of heated front seats, LED headlights and daytime running lights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rooftop side rails, proximity entry, push-button start, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, dual-zone automatic climate control, paddle shifters, front and rear USB ports, two 12-volt power outlets, and a remote folding 60/40-split rear seatback with a center armrest.
This lowest-priced trim also gets an infotainment system with an 8-inch touchscreen that supports wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, SiriusXM satellite radio, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. Hyundai SmartSense comes standard as well, increasing the safety factor with forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection and cyclist/junction turning detection, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, driver attention warning, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, safe exit warning, and rear occupant alert.
The Limited is outfitted in a more deluxe way, getting a panoramic sunroof, a hands-free liftgate, projector-type LED headlights and premium daytime running lights, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and Hyundai Digital Key, which lets your smartphone be used to lock, unlock, and start the vehicle. The cabin is made more comfortable with leather upholstery, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel; ambient interior lighting makes a statement with 64 color options.
This trim’s standard technology includes a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, a wireless phone charger, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, plus infotainment upgrades: a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation, dynamic voice recognition, and a premium Bose audio system. The larger touchscreen isn’t compatible with wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, so it uses the traditional plug-in variety. The driver-assist suite is enhanced with a surround-view camera system, a live-feed blind-spot view monitor, front and rear parking sensors, reverse automatic braking, highway driving assist, navigation-based smart cruise control, ultrasonic rear occupant alert, and Remote Smart Parking Assist.
