It isn’t hard to understand the appeal of small crossover SUVs. These cars combine fuel economy, ample cargo space and the comfort of all-wheel drive to make a vehicle that’s excellent value for money. The Hyundai Tucson is one such crossover SUV that’s garnered a lot of attention. The Tucson comes in SE, SEL, Value, Eco, and Limited trim, and has all-around dependability that’s enough to woo buyers.
Even at the most basic level, the Tucson is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, manual air conditioning, LED daytime lights, and a 7.0-inch color touchscreen with Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and a reverse camera. You also get six airbags, hill descent control and hill start assist and reverse parking sensors.
The new Tucson has grown in size and style and has gained lots of modern technology upgrades, along with the new turbocharged 1.6-liter engine. With its optional crash-avoidance technology, the Tucson has also received the highest safety ratings.
The Tucson’s European design comes with prominent hexagonal-shaped grille, stylish LED headlights and LED Daytime Running Lights, along with a sculpted hood. The driver gets an available power 8-way seat. The leather-appointed passenger cabin offers both ventilated and heated front seats, while the available dual automatic climate control maximizes comfort in any season.
Don’t assume that the driver gets the most comfort because the Tucson has impressive rear leg room and two-stage reclining rear seats and available heated rear seats, along with rear-seat air vents used to cool down or warm up second-row passengers.
The car also scores big on the technology front, with 5-inch color touchscreen audio system, and a rearview camera. There’s a free trial of SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and six-speaker MP3 audio system to make every ride fun without distractions. The interactive 8-inch navigation touchscreen comes with an enhanced split-screen display providing you with real-time updates on traffic, weather, stocks, and sports. The Blue Link infotainment system is standard for the Hyundai Tucson too.
The 2.0-liter four-cylinder base engine comes with a six-speed automatic transmission and produces 164 horsepower. There’s an available 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that gives 175 horsepower. The seven-speed automatic transmission it is paired with gives a smooth ride.
Although there are plenty of variants in this range, the Tucson impresses with its fuel efficiency, safety, and smooth ride quality. If average interiors and lack of technical features like sunroof and automatic wipers aren’t a problem, the Hyundai Tucson is sure to be a great buy for a family of five.
