Hybrid vehicles have been hitting my driveway it seems every other week or so and this time it is the 2022 Hyundai Tucson PHEV Limited AWD. Driving it around town has given me perspective on what it has going for it, so time to tell you. Here are the Pros and Cons of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson PHEV Limited AWD.
PRO: Standard All-wheel-drive
All 2022 Hyundai Tucson PHEV models come standard with Hyundai’s all-wheel-drive system.
PRO: Big Screens All-Around
In the driver seat of the Tucson PHEV you will be surrounded by digital screens all around you. You get a 10.25-inch digital screen as your driver information cluster as well as a 10.25-inch digital infotainment touch display.
PRO: Good Looking Baby-Santa Fe
Looks are always subjective, but the Hyundai Santa Fe is one of the best-looking SUVs you can buy on the market and the Tucson fits in nicely looking like a baby version of one.
CON: Too Much Touch
To go with those beautiful full crisp clear digital displays comes an onslaught of touch buttons in lieu of standard buttons or nobs. The volume will likely be the biggest annoyance while “did I actually press it” will be the problem for the rest of the center console.
CON: Low on the EV Only MPG and the Total Miles Per Tank
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson PHEV is capable of a respectable EPA estimated range of 420 miles while 33 miles can be driven in EV on its own. That is a nice number until you glance at a rival lot pushing 500-mile ranges and 40+ EV miles.
