2022 Hyundai Tucson N Line, Plug-In Hybrid Revealed

More models join Tucson family

  • New Tucson getting sporty, green variants

  • PHEV might actually be the fast one thanks to electric power


Hyundai has just added two new models to the Tucson line for 2022. The Tucson N Line and plug-in hybrids offer two very different ways of going at the compact crossover: one loaded with sporting accents the other with an EV range of more than 50 km on a charge.

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson N Line adds a more aggressive appearance inside and out, starting with new fascias and bumpers front and rear, with more air vents up front and a rear diffuser. Black headlamp surrounds, N Line badging, black trim, dual exhaust, and a new rear spoiler along with 19-inch wheels complete the appearance makeover.

It gets the features of the SEL line with Convenience package, but also adds Bose audio, metal pedals and door sill plates, and leather and fabric on sports seats with red accents throughout.

The 2022 Tucson PHEV gets a total of 261 hp thanks to a 1.6L turbo-four (linked to a six-speed auto), electric motors, and a 13.8 kWh battery allowing for a 53 km range. Level 2 charging can top it up in under two hours with 7.2 kW charging, while the AWD model is expected to return 7.8 L/100 km combined, Hyundai said. It will also tow up to 2,000 lbs, for when a small trailer is needed.

Hyundai has also given the Tucson PHEV and hybrid models a new e-handling technology that uses the electric motors to provide torque vectoring. That means better turn-in response and precision as well as improved traction out of corners, which the automaker suggests should add some enjoyment to the driving experience.
