Tucson for the enthusiast?

Is the Hyundai Tucson XRT all new as of 2022?

Yes, Hyundai has completely overhauled its lineup of SUV’s. Everything is a recent addition, including the creases on the bodywork and cascading headlight design, or has been redesigned. The interior has also been made more dynamic, with a center stack devoid of hard buttons and a shroudless digital instrument panel. The XRT adds a whole you rugged look to the Tucson line up.

It also comes standard with a 8.8-inch touchscreen that is integrated into the dashboard.

How does the HYUNDAI Tucson Xrt Drive?

I have two perspectives to answer this question:

As a fairly tall, family man, It almost seems it is the perfect size for so many different occasions. It’s versatile size, both on the inside and out gives it that distinction. It’s comfortable, spacious and has the cargo space to take you anywhere. My children had no issues climbing in and out of the car.

As a car enthusiast, I would argue it’s one of the better looking designs in the segment. I like having a shift lever, the roof rack and running boards definitely beef up the look, it’s more rugged and made for enthusiast, which i can appreciate.

Final thoughts

What you get for under $40K is impressive. Bang for the buck is the theme here. The tUCson XRT has nothing I would change. It’s all done with style and on a budget. Provided it’s a family car I also give compliments to the safety features and warranty.
