The XRT, a bold variant of Hyundai Tucson 2022 has been unveiled in America. It is designed to outlast the standard model.

While all Tucson XRT models use the same SEL trim as the Convenience package, they also have a number of visual alterations. The exclusive rear and front fascias feature rugged details and a striking matte-black finish.

Hyundai has added cladding to the rocker panels and wheel arch cladding to the Tucson XRT. A pair of black monochrome wing mirrors is included, as well as black 19-inch alloy tires.

It also features black interior seating with a black headliner.

The XRT, which is based upon the Tucson SEL and Convenience Package features such as a hands-free smart lifting gate, touchscreen, Hyundai Digital Key, wifi charging pad, ambient lighting, auto-dimming backview mirror, soft-touch doors, leather-wrapped shift knob and shift wheel, dual temperature control and dual automatic temperature adjustment.
