2022 Hyundai Tuscon Fuel Economy Is Mightily Impressive

The all-new 2022 Hyundai Tucson is gearing up for launch this summer, and it's starting to look very good indeed. The fourth-generation of the compact crossover has got a new and sharper suit, and for the first time, the Tucson will be available as a hybrid and plug-in hybrid. And now the EPA estimates for fuel economy for all but the plug-in hybrid have come in and it looks good for those that value their MPG.

Starting with the piston-only powered version, the base model SE with front-wheel-drive and a 2.5-liter engine. The EPA estimates it to have fuel economy of 26 mpg in the city, 33 mpg on the highway, and 29 mpg on the combined cycle. That's up considerably from the 2021 model's 23/28/25 mpg city/highway/combined.

 

If you add all-wheel-drive, the new 24/29/26 mpg city/highway/combined is still a considerable improvement over the previous base front-wheel-drive model. Of the figures released so far, though, the base hybrid, the Tucson Hybrid Blue, is the lightest on fuel despite coming with all-wheel-drive as standard. It has an even spread of 38/38/38 mpg city/highway/combined. Its drivetrain consists of a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine matched to a six-speed automatic transmission, an electric motor, and a 1.49-kWh battery. The more feature-laden 2022 Hyundai Tucson Hybrid takes a slight hit, clocking in with 37/36/37 mpg city/highway/combined.

 

The EPA estimates for the plug-in-hybrid aren't available yet, and neither is its MSRP from Hyundai. However, we do know it gets a 261-hp 1.6-liter engine and a 13.8-kWh battery. According to Hyundai, it should arrive with a 30 mpg combined figure and get up to 32 miles of range on electric power alone.

Hyundai has been pushing hard into Toyota, Nissan, and Honda-dominated segments over the past couple of years. With its new sharp looks and an upgraded and broader range of drivetrains, it looks like the South Korean automaker is ready to go toe-to-toe with the Nissan Rogue, Toyota RAV4, and Honda CR-V.
