The world is flooded with compact crossovers. Just about every automotive company out there makes one, and so many of them look alike. Finding the cream of the crop can be hard, but the 2022 model year of the Hyundai Tucson comes with a redesign that both brings it in line with other new Hyundai exterior designs, and helps it stand above the rabble.
In Canada, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson is sold in five different trim levels, two of which have hybrid powertrains. Some models also have HTRAC™ AWD available, making the Tucson especially attractive to Canadian families. Because of this fact alone, many will skip over the two lowest trims, but we will still provide a chart below that compares a pair of key features from each trim against the other trims. The chart lists the lowest trim first and ends with the highest trim.

Although the 2022 Hyundai Tucson shares the same general shape as its competitors, the front and sides help draw the eyes in for a closer look. The N Line gets a special advantage with its unique exterior badging and other treatments. The two hybrid powertrains show that hybrid fuel efficiency and luxury can come as a pair. It’s a bold move from Hyundai, but one that will likely end up helping improve hybrid acceptance. The N Line is the lowest-priced HTRAC™ AWD-capable model, which means many shoppers will start their search there first.
