Hyundai today unveiled its next-generation 2022 Tucson SUV. At this point, the details revealed have to do with the U.S. version of the redesigned model, but we don’t expect there to be any major differences in the nextTucson coming to Canada.
Like the U.S. market, for example, we will likely only get the long-wheelbase version of the Tucson sold in global markets.
The next Tucson will be longer than before, with a new 108.3-inch wheelbase that's 3.4 inches more than for the outgoing version. The SUV is also about half an inch wider and half an inch higher. Without the optional panoramic sunroof, Hyundai says that occupant space increases by 170 litres to 3,058 litres. Cargo volume now reaches 2,265 litres with the rear seats folded down. That's a notable 227 litres more than the 2021 model.
These gains will allow the Tucson to match up better versus the segment's top performers, namely the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V and Nissan Rogue.
