We’ve seen a lot of mainstream affordable compact crossover SUVs unveiled over the years, with each new release garnering little more than halted applause and a whole lot of yawns. The all-new 2022 Hyundai Tuscon breaks that mold with a thrilling, futuristic exterior that reviewers describe as “razor sharp” and “wildly executed,” looking worlds apart from any of its competition.
With three powertrain options to further impress, the 2022 Tuscon is looking to be a force to be reckoned with in the compact SUV niche. Let’s take a peek at what’s generating all the buzz!
An Exterior That Looks Sharp From All Angles
The futuristic sharp and overall angular exterior of the new Tuscon, called “parametric dynamics,” is the real head-turner on Hyundai’s fourth-generation compact SUV. Boasting a concept-like face with its huge three-dimensional geometric grille, and LED “Parametric Hidden Lights” cleverly integrated below the DRLs in smaller openings of the grille’s grid pattern, there’s a lot to love about this SUV’s exterior. On top of that, the headlights have the added cool effect of looking as though they’ve disappeared when switched off.

A Cabin with Lots of Goodies
The cabin design is easily the second most exciting aspect on the all-new Tuscon, with Hyundai’s self-titled “Interspace” concept-like design featuring an optional 10.25-inch central touchscreen for navigation. This is stacked above the Infotainment screen, having 64-colour ambient mood lighting, and using touch sensitive controls for climate and media. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also included.
Hyundai compares its air vent integration throughout the cockpit to what one might expect from an aviation design, running the width of the dashboard in a fashion that’s reminiscent of the Tesla Model 3.
A Good Range of Powertrain Options and Performance Enhancement
The fourth gen Tuscon offers buyers three powertrain models, starting with an eight-speed automatic transmission gasoline-powered 2.5-litre four-cylinder engine that belts out a tidy 178 horsepower and 182 lb-ft of torque. The turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder direct injection model will include hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. These systems come with a continuously variable automatic transmission, with the turbo beefing the power up to 229 horses and 258 lb-ft of torque.
Hyundai uses a new technology anyone in auto careers will be interested in, called E-Handling, which is designed for better overall handling and steer response. Additionally, the 2022 Tuscon offers drivers an all-wheel-drive system that can handle just about anything you throw at it, from snow, mud, sand, and other treacherous conditions.
Additional Stand-Out Features to Impress Those with Auto Careers
Students of car sales training are bound to be taken with the car’s awesome connectivity capabilities, with the option to connect two smartphones at the same time, and a device-linking feature that lets drivers remotely switch on their home’s air conditioning.
A feature called Digital Key tech lets drivers use their smartphone as the main key, letting them lock and unlock the doors, start the engine, and drive off using Bluetooth and NFC. Their phone can do other cool stuff with the Tuscon too, like remotely starting the car and switching on A/C or heating from up to 90 feet away.
Tuscon’s SmartSense safety suite also impresses, including advanced lane-keeping steer assist, and adaptive cruise control for bearing stop-and-go traffic headaches. Remote Smart Parking Assist is another stand-out feature, helping drivers in and out of tight parking spots with the mere touch of a button.
