2022 Hyundai Tucson vs 2022 Hyundai Tucson Plug-in Hybrid

Serving Troy, MI

The Hyundai Tucson has been an appealing SUV option throughout its history, and that appeal grows stronger in 2022 with the introduction of the model’s fourth generation. The next-generation improvements include bumper-to-bumper restyling and the debut of two new powertrain options. These are hybrid and plug-hybrid options. At Suburban Hyundai, we want you to feel confident about your next SUV purchase, and we will happily show off the Tucson’s many improvements when we hear from you soon.


The Tucson’s gas-powered engine is unchanged from the 2021 model year. This is a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder engine that puts out 187 horsepower. The hybrid and plug-in hybrid versions of the 2022 Tucson have the same turbocharged 1.6-liter, four-cylinder engine. This is paired with a battery-powered motor. The hybrid system generates 227 net horsepower, and this is bumped up to 261 net horsepower for the plug-in hybrid system.


The Hyundai Tucson’s four gas-powered trim options for the 2022 model year are the SE, SEL, N Line, and the Limited. Three additional trim levels are offered for the green powertrain systems, including the Blue Hybrid, SEL Convenience Hybrid, and the Limited Hybrid. You will find that lower trim levels have slightly smaller wheels and subtle variations in headlights. All of the 2022 Tucson trim levels are designed with a rounded nose and flowing aerodynamics. The nose is accentuated with a radiant grille, segmented headlights, and crisp definition across the doors and hood. The wheel wells have black molding and a squared-off look.


Across the gas-powered and green trim levels, you will find comparable equipment. For example, their lower trim levels are outfitted with desired features like roof rails, a push-button ignition, dual USB ports, keyless entry, a blind-spot monitoring system with collision mitigation, heated front seats, and heated side mirrors. At the top trim levels, you can appreciate driver’s side memory settings, steering wheel paddle shifters, a surround-view camera, heated front and rear seats, a panoramic sunroof, a navigation system, and a 10.25-inch display screen.

Our goal at Suburban Hyundai is to help you make your next SUV selection with superior confidence. We want to support your continued comparison of the next-generation Tucson and its three powertrain options.
