By 2022, the Hyundai Tucson has been fully redesigned inside and out, and you can see the significant changes for this model at Huffines Hyundai Plano. The small SUV has a striking new exterior appearance, distinctive signature lighting, and a new engine lineup, including hybrid and plug-in hybrid options. With the base gas engine, you can opt for front- or all-wheel drive, while the hybrid models come standard with all-wheel drive.
But, it’s on the inside that you’ll find the biggest changes. Tucson’s futuristic, upscale cabin is a masterclass in understated elegance and offers even more passenger and cargo space. The interior is packed with the latest technology, connectivity, and safety features. Let’s take a look at how the Tucson tops other small SUVs.
Spacious and Comfortable Cabin

The ergonomically designed interior of the 2022 Tucson has a modern and luxurious feel with smooth, clean lines and upscale materials. A stylish hoodless instrument cluster adds to the contemporary look and improves the driver’s visibility. The cabin offers ample space for five adults with superior headroom and legroom for both front and rear passengers, as you can see from these dimensions:
- Headroom – front 40.1 inches, rear 39.5 inches.
- Legroom – front 41.4 inches, rear 41.3 inches.
- Shoulder room – front 57.6 inches, rear 56 inches.
- Hip room – 54.5 inches, rear 53.9 inches.
The supportive, sculpted seats provide superb comfort, even on the longest journeys, while the Tucson’s supple suspension smooths out bumps in the road for a refined ride. Solar control front glass and the acoustic laminated windshield help keep the cabin calm and quiet.
You’ll find stain-resistant cloth upholstery in the Tucson SE, a six-way adjustable driver’s seat, 60/40-split folding and reclining rear seats, and manual climate control. The SEL adds heated front seats and an eight-way power-adjustable driver’s seat with power lumbar support.
The Tucson N Line features a unique sporty black interior with red accents, leather-trimmed cloth sports seats, a black headliner, alloy sports pedals, an exclusive N Line leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and ambient lighting. You also get dual-zone automatic temperature control with auto defogger and CleanAir Ionizer.
Stepping up to the top-of-the-range Limited trim gets you plush leather upholstery, driver’s seat memory, an eight-way power-adjustable passenger seat, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, LED interior lighting, a panoramic sunroof, and a heated steering wheel with paddle shifters. You can set the mood with enhanced 64-color ambient lighting, while the HVAC system features voice control, capacitive-touch controls, and Multi-Air Mode for softened airflow.
Versatile and Roomy Cargo Area
When you’ve got gear to move, the 2022 Tucson has even more cargo space than the previous model. Behind the second-row seats, you have 38.7 cubic feet of storage, while folding down the rear seats gives you a generous 74.8-cubic-foot cargo area with a dual-level floor. The 60/40-split back seats give you the versatility to maximize your passenger and cargo capacity, and they can be conveniently folded using the remote release in the cargo area. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson trim levels offer plenty of cargo space for all your needs.
The cargo area’s low liftover and flat floor make it easy to load and unload the Tucson. For smaller items, you’ll find clever storage solutions throughout the cabin. When you’ve got your hands full, a convenient hands-free smart liftgate with a gesture-free auto-open function is optional for the SEL and standard on the N Line and Limited trims.
The Tucson brings the latest technology to Texas drivers. All but the base model feature proximity key entry and push-button start. The top two trims offer an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink. An available configurable 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster brings your vehicle information to life, and in the Limited trim, incorporates a blind-spot view monitor.
With the Tucson’s standard infotainment system, you get a vivid 8-inch touch-screen display, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay integration, Bluetooth for hands-free calling and media streaming, dual front USB ports, a sound system with HD radio, and steering wheel controls for Bluetooth, audio, and cruise control. A 12-volt power outlet in the front and another in the cargo area allow you to power up or charge small electrical items.
The SEL adds two second-row USB ports and satellite radio, while the N Line offers a premium Bose eight-speaker audio system and wireless phone charging. The Limited trim has a 10.25-inch touch screen with navigation and traffic flow functions, along with a surround-view monitor.
All except the Tucson SE come standard with Hyundai Bluelink connected car service, which enables you to use your smartphone, smartwatch, or smart speaker to remotely access vehicle functions via the Hyundai app. With the app, you can check your car’s status, lock and unlock the doors, start the engine, and set the temperature. It also includes on-demand vehicle diagnostics, driver profile management, and automatic emergency assistance. With the Tucson Limited, you can send destinations from your phone to the car’s navigation system.
Driver Assist Features

Keeping you and your family safe in the Tucson is the standard Hyundai SmartSense suite of driver assistance technologies. It includes forward collision avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, lane following assist, and lane-keeping assist.
Driver attention warning alerts you if it detects drowsy or inattentive driving. A rear occupant alert reminds you to check the back seats before leaving the vehicle, while a safe exit warning alerts you to a car approaching from behind when you’re parked. The SEL adds forward collision mitigation with cyclist and junction turning detection. With the Limited trim, you also get Highway assist, parking collision avoidance assist, and remote smart parking assist.
