Nuts & Bolts

 
 

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson takes what you know about the model and kicks it up more than just one notch.

Hyundai sells more Tucsons than any other model, and not just in the U.S. The global best-seller has been reborn with striking new looks and high-tech innovation that, on the surface, squarely put it at odds with the budget-conscious most of the models it competes against.

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson will be sold in short- and long wheelbase models worldwide.

Designers continues the Sensuous Sportiness language first put forth in the 2020 Hyundai Sonata and continued in the 2021 Hyundai Elantra in the new Tucson. At its front are Parametic Hidden Headlights that incorporate the daytime running lights and their housing into the grille of the vehicle. Here, it's realized as a "T" shape the that is similar to the new fascia on the refreshed Hyundai Santa Fe. The automaker says that the lights are only visible when they are illuminated.

The crease-heavy body styling continues from the hood and down the sides of the compact SUV giving the model looks beyond your typical jellybean-shaped mommy hauler.

At the rear, a body-width taillight incorporates half-hidden triangular shapes that are only visible when lit. The Hyundai logo has been moved from its traditional place and and is now integrated into the rear glass. In turn, the wiper is now hidden under the car's spoiler.

Hyundai will sell the gasoline-powered versions of the model in seven paint colors: White Cream, Phantom Black, Shimmering Silver, Nocturne Gray, Amazon Gray, Flame Red, and Intense Blue, six of which are new for Tucson. Hybrid and plug-in hybrid models offer the following four colors: White Cream, Phantom Black, Shimmering Silver, and Intense Blue, three of which are new for Tucson.

The Tucson will be powered by a standard 2.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine. It achieves 187 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. These figures give the engine more horsepower than either of the two engines in the 2020 model and 31 pound-feet more torque than that year's base 2.0-liter four-cylinder.

A more powerful turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder will be available. That same 1.6-liter engine is also able to be matched with hybrid (HEV) and plug-in hybrid (PHEV) technology. Each engine is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The 1.6-liter hybrid engine alone achieves 178 horsepower. When coupled with the battery and elector motor, the overall output increases to 227 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, far surpassing anything offered in the last-gen Tucson.

Hyundai will employ its first-in-class E-Handling technology for HEV and PHEV models. All-wheel drive is available on the Tucson and comes with a number of drive modes: Eco, Comfort, Smart, Sport, Mud, Sand and Snow (not available in all markets).

The roster of safety technology on the Tucson is impressive. It includes: highway driving assist, forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, blind spot view monitor, blind-spot collision warning, surround view monitor, reverse parking collision-avoidance assist, remote smart parking assist, high beam assist, and driver attention warning. Blind spot collision avoidance assist with rear cross-traffic alert and assist, adaptive cruise control with stop and go, and safe exit warning are also available.

Hyundai designers strived to give the 2022 Tucson a serene and spacious interior. Like in the Nissan Ariya, the model was crafted to seamlessly blend space, technology, and information. The layered waterfall effect of the dashboard combines traditional horizontal lines with curves to draw the eye upward and downward without the feeling of space segregation. This space is marked by twin silver garnish lines that flow from the center fascia to the rear doors. Sixty-four color ambient mood lighting is adjustable in 10 levels of brightness.

The center stack houses twin 10.25-inch touch screens with split-screen and multi-tasking capabilities in the top Tucson trim level. A multi-air ventilation system and a hoodless digital gauge cluster are also present. An 8.0-inch infotainment screen is standard and features wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto technology. A Bose Premium audio system is available.

Hyundai has given the Tucson its Digital Key technology, which uses an app to turn a user's smartphone into a smart key. This technology also debuted on the 2020 Sonata.

The company's car-to-home functionality allows customers to control smart home appliances from their car. Similarly, Tucson's new Multi-Command function allows customers to "warm-up the car"— including heating system, heated steering wheel and seat warmers—with a single voice command while at home.

The Tucson is the first Hyundai vehicle to have the company's new air conditioning technology.

Hyundai engineers have designed the Tucson's second-row seats to feature fold-and-dive functionality. This allows for 38.7 cubic feet of cargo space. This is about the same amount as the cavernous Honda CR-V.

The first deliveries of the Tucson will happen in Korea in September. The U.S. will have to wait until the first half of 2021 for the model.

Hyundai has plans to introduce a Tucson N Line model globally at a date to be announced.

At its face, the new F-Pace features ultra-slim all-LED quad headlights with "Double J Blade" daytime running light signatures. Front and center is an enlarged grille that features the heritage Jaguar logo-inspired diamond detailing. High beam assist is standard. At the rear, slim lights feature Jaguar's double chicane graphic, just as they are on the I-Pace.

A sculpted hood has a reduced number of shut lines and the side vents of the model now feature Jaguar's Leaper emblem. The F-Pace R-Dynamic features distinct elements designed to give the SUV a performance-focused look. Opting for the Black Exterior Pack adds Gloss Black elements.

The 2021 F-Pace will be sold with the buyer's choice of three engines in the U.S. The F-Pace 250 and S 250 get a 246-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The mid-grade S 340 has a 335-horsepower, turbocharged and supercharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder mild-hybrid engine. The F-Pace R-Dynamic S 400 is powered by a 395-horsepower, turbocharged and supercharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder mild-hybrid engine. All gasoline-powered engines are paired with the same eight-speed automatic transmission.

Drivers can choose from Comfort, Eco, Rain-Ice-Snow ,and Dynamic drive modes. The smallest engine gets from zero to 60 mph in 6.9 seconds. It takes the F-Pace R-Dynamic just 5.0 seconds to accomplish the same feat.

Jaguar's design team has spent a significant amount of time on the interior of the 2021 F-Pace. It has a new cockpit design that places greater focus on the driver. At the center of the dashboard is an 11.4-inch curved-glass high-definition touch screen that is encased in a magnesium alloy. That screen is three times brighter than the previous 10-inch screen.

The touch screen features Jaguar Land Rover's Pivi Pro operating system (the base model has the older Pivi system). The next-gen system offers improved controls and simplified menus. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard, as is the ability to connect two smartphones to Bluetooth at the same time.

In front of the driver is a newly available 12.3-inch high-definition driver's information screen that features a configurable layout that includes full-screen navigation with turn-by-turn directions, digital dials, and infotainment details. A head-up display is also available.

The car's dual-modem setup allows for connectivity by the car without compromising the performance of personal device connectivity.

The center console blends with the instrument panel and incorporates a wireless charger. An LED light strip spans the front of the cabin and features 10 color options.

Jaguar has given the SUV a long list of standard features that includes heated seats, keyless entry, a 14-speaker Meridian sound system with Sirius XM. Buyers can opt to add on the Activity Key, which can be used to lock, unlock and start the vehicle without the need for the conventional key fob to be present in the vehicle. Air ionization is also available.

The cabin is finished in authentic materials including open-pore wood veneers and aluminum. Attention has been paid to the shape of forms in the cabin to make them more elegant and sophisticated. Laser-etched mid-line speaker frets, the metallic rotary dial of the JaguarDrive Control, and cricket ball stitching on the Drive Selector enhance the sensory experience.

Soft-touch materials have been used more extensively in the 2021 model with the instrument panel topper, door armrests, console sides and door bins all wrapped for increased tactility.

Jaguar has redesigned the F-Pace's seats to feature wider cushioning, massage functionality, and enhanced heating and cooling areas. The Jaguar Leaper is embossed on all occupant headrests on selected models, and a set of 'Est.1935 Jaguar Coventry' upholstery tags that highlight the brand's heritage.

To improve the ride experience, Jaguar has integrated the brand's new Active Road Noise Cancellation technology into the cabin, which helps to keep road and engine noise at bay.

Buyers who opt for the F-Pace R-Dynamic model will get a sportier interior specification that includes sports seats upholstered in Mars Red, Siena Tan, Ebony or Light Oyster as well as an Ebony headliner and steering wheel. "R" badging is on display throughout the cabin. There are also aluminum finishes throughout the cabin.

The car comes standard with and has available a number of safety and driver assist technologies including Clear Exit Monitor, which warns occupants of an approaching car or cyclist as they exit the vehicle. All F-Pace models get blind spot assist, rear traffic monitor, and a 3D surround camera.
