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.
The base SEL gets automatic LED headlights, LED daytime running lights and taillights, heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rear privacy glass, keyless entry, push-button ignition, ae drive mode selector, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, heated front seats, front and second row USB ports, two 12-volt power outlets (one up front and one in the cargo area), a rearview camera with dynamic parking guidelines, dual-zone automatic climate control, and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. Rooftop side rails and a 60/40-split fold-down and reclining rear seatback with a center armrest and cupholders round out the vehicle’s utility factor.
The Limited will pamper its occupants with a panoramic moonroof, leather seats (heated and ventilated in the front row), heated rear outboard seats, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, wireless smartphone charging, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a class-exclusive hands-free liftgate. It also has projector-type LED headlights, premium LED daytime running lights, a dark chrome accent grille, rain-sensing windshield wipers, class-exclusive Digital Key (lets you lock, unlock, and start the vehicle from your smartphone), an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a HomeLink universal garage door opener, LED interior lighting, and ambient interior lighting.
Safety and Technology
Both trims are equipped with the Hyundai SmartSense bundle of advanced driver aid technologies. The SEL’s suite consists of forward collision-avoidance assist (with pedestrian, cyclist, and 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, rear occupant alert, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, and automatic high beams. The Limited gets more: front and rear parking sensors, a surround-view camera system, a blind-spot view monitor, highway driving assist, navigation-based adaptive cruise control with curve control, advanced rear occupant alert, and remote smart parking assist.
Hyundai understands the importance of staying connected, informed, and entertained on the road, and so it has packed the Tucson PHEV with more than the basics. The SEL’s infotainment system has an 8-inch touchscreen, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD radio, SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluelink Connected Car Service capability, and Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming. The Limited moves up to a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation but reverts to standard plug-in smartphone integration, since the wireless version isn’t compatible with this larger screen. Voice recognition and a premium Bose sound system are also standard on the higher trim.
