Don’t worry—it looks better in person. The styling isn’t the only big change for the 2022 Hyundai Tucson, though. It’s longer, wider, and taller than the current SUV, and it will be available as a hybrid and plug-in hybrid for the first time.
The change in proportions means more space inside. The 2022 Tucson is 5.9 inches longer, 0.6 inch wider, and 0.6 inch taller than the model it replaces, with its wheelbase, also increasing by 3.4 inches, making it roughly the same size as the Honda CR-V or Toyota RAV4.
The Tucson Limited model we saw in person was equipped with a 10.3-inch touchscreen, capacitive HVAC controls, ambient lighting, and another 10.3-inch screen for the instrument cluster. Lower trims get an 8.0-inch touchscreen with a 4.2-inch LCD display on the instrument cluster, but they benefit from wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, something you don’t get with the 10.3- inch touchscreen.
The bigger proportions mean more space inside. The second-row seats feel like a living room, with a whopping 41.3 inches of legroom and a deep recline. Cargo capacity has also grown from 31.0 to 38.7 cubic feet, and the cargo floor can be lowered a couple of inches for more space.

The Big Picture
2021 Ford F-150
No, no—relax. There is no V-8 under the hood of the 2021 F-150 Raptor. At least, not yet—Ford says the eight-cylinder Raptor R super truck is rumbling its way toward the horizon break and should arrive sometime next year. For now, the standard Raptor is the top-of-the-line off-road baddie from the F-150 family.
