2022 Hyundai Tucson Review : 7 Pros & 7 Cons

The 2022 Tucson is based on the N3 platform developed by Hyundai and Kia. The car is solidly built and the doors & tailgate have a good heft to them.

Hyundai Tucson Pros

  • A futuristic-looking, well-engineered premium SUV
  • Complete urban package with comfortable suspension, light steering and a smooth automatic
  • 2.0L diesel engine is not just refined, but punchy too
  • 540 litres of boot space is enough to haul holiday luggage
  • ADAS safety features like autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitor and lane-keep assist are cool & work reasonably well
  • Loaded with features like a panoramic sunroof, multi-air mode AC, ventilated and heated front seats, connected car tech, wireless charging, boss control for the front seat etc.
  • 5-star Euro NCAP rating. 6 airbags, ESC, VSM, downhill brake control, TPMS, 360-degree camera & more

Hyundai Tucson Cons

  • Edgy looks & funky styling may not be to everyone's liking
  • At ~43 lakhs on road for the top-end variant, the Tucson is expensive!
  • Not as engaging to drive as the Kodiaq or Tiguan
  • Naturally-aspirated petrol isn't as punchy as the competitors' turbo-petrol units
  • Other crossovers & SUVs offer a 3rd-row of seats. Tucson is a 5-seater only
  • Some missing features such as paddle shifters, rear sunblinds...
  • Hyundai badge lacks the snob value that many 40-lakh rupee customers are looking for
