Back in September, Hyundai showed us the new, fourth-generation 2022 Hyundai Tucson in all of its geometric glory, sporting new tech and an airy interior. With its arrival at dealerships fast approaching, we now have an idea of how much it’ll cost.

On Monday, the automaker announced that prices for the new Tucson will start at $24,950 for the front-wheel drive, 2.5-liter engine SE trim. There will be a total of 15 different trim combinations, with the range-topping Limited HEV hybrid version starting at $37,350.

All prices exclude the $1,185 destination and handling fee.

You can see a full rundown of the new Tucson’s prices below.

Last year, the automaker unveiled the latest version of its globally best-selling model and its most popular SUV in the US. It comes with a “jewel-like” front grille made up of “half-mirror type daytime running lamps that are assimilated seamlessly within the parametric grille” and are “only revealed when illuminated.” Neat!

It’s the same story from the back: the new Tucson has full-width tail lights that have half-hidden triangles on them that you can only see when they’re lit. These design elements make the Tucson unlike all of the other cars in the saturated SUV market.

Engine options include a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, good for a claimed 187 horsepower and 182 pound-feet of torque. It’s hooked up to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Then there’s the 1.6-liter, turbocharged hybrid or plug-in hybrid option. That engine makes a claimed 227 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque combined. There’s also a sportier N Line performance version of the new Tucson that’ll start at $30,600.

The Tucson will have available all-wheel drive, including on the N Line model. Previous versions of it had eco, comfort, smart, and sport driving modes. The newest version has mud, sand, and snow conditions added in certain markets.

Inside, the Tucson appears quite spacious indeed. The dashboard is kept low relative to the window line, which will hopefully improve visibility. Similar to Mercedes-Benz, the interior will now come with 64 different colors of ambient lighting that have 10 levels of adjustable brightness.

There are two stacked 10.25-inch full touch screens that house controls for the navigation system, infotainment, and climate. If you’re someone who likes buttons, this might not be the interior for you. Hyundai even made it a point to say that the screens are “exempt of hard buttons.”

There’s also a feature called Car-to-Home, which lets you control your smart home appliances from the car. Hyundai said with Car-to-Home, you can turn on the air conditioner at home before you get there, for example.

There’s also a full suite of safety features that include forward collision-avoidance assist, pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, blind-spot view monitor, surround-view monitor, and reverse parking collision-avoidance assist.

And, as mentioned previously, the 2022 Tucson will be available in two different-length wheelbases, depending on the market. The car is for sale already in Korea as a 2021 model. In the US, it will be available in the first half of 2021 as a 2022 model.
