New 2022 Hyundai Tucson adds new rugged XRT trim with bold looks

The wide range of modifications of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson crossover , which includes a long-wheelbase and a “short” version, two hybrids , a model with an L index for China and a “heated” N Line , is another replenishment. This time, Tucson appeared in the XRT performance, which went to the older Santa Fe model on the US market in the summer – and the transformation formula remained practically unchanged.

A kind of combat “off-road” image, already familiar to us, including from the related crossover Kia Sportage X-Pro , is created by modified bumpers, lining of unpainted plastic around the body, enlarged roof rails, 19-inch black wheels with a special design, footboards on the doorsteps, as well as dark decor outside and inside. However, there are no technical differences from the standard model for the American market with a 2.5 GDI naturally aspirated gasoline engine (190 HP, 241 Nm): the Tucson XRT is available with both full and front wheel drive. Even the suspension remains the same – the new modification cannot boast of an increase in ground clearance.

The basis for the XRT version was Tucson in the “middle” SEL configuration with the Convenience Package, but you will have to pay extra for off-road decor: the original crossover in the States was priced at $ 30,475, and for the new modification they ask from $ 32,625. However, the Tucson XRT will most likely not appear outside the American market.
