Overview of the Hyundai Tucson

Learn about the Hyundai Tucson

Summary

The Hyundai Tucson is a compact SUV with all-wheel drive available on select trims, as well as a choice of automatic or manual transmission. It offers an expansive list of available features such as heated seats and hands-free tailgate. Some will find the base engine in older generation vehicles isn’t as powerful as they’d like, but this has been rectified in models produced after 2010—with the bonus of improved fuel economy. With its convenient technologies and comprehensive safety features, the Hyundai Tucson is a strong contender for families looking for a smaller SUV that doesn’t compromise comfort.

Safety

An extensive list of safety features makes the Hyundai Tucson a peace-of-mind choice. Older models prior to 2010 have driver and passenger airbags and child safety locks as standard. Additionally, the anti-lock braking system, electronic safety control and traction control help keep you safe in a skid or during an emergency brake. Tucsons from 2010 onward offer a back-up camera for safer reversing and parking. The newest generations are available with Hyundai’s active driver assist technologies when you opt for specific trim levels. These include:

  • Blind spot monitoring for assistance with reversing and changing lanes
  • Lane departure warning to prevent veering off
  • Forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection to spot potential hazards
  • Automatic emergency braking when a sudden braking scenario is detected ahead
  • Rear parking sensors using integrated cameras for parking guidance

Interior

The Hyundai Tucson features the following as standard:

  • Power windows, door locks and mirrors for easy adjustment and control
  • Front reading lamps
  • Keyless entry
  • Vanity mirrors for the driver and front passenger
  • Power steering
  • Auxiliary power outlet

Though some drivers find the cabin materials in basic models to be of low quality, there’s always the option to upgrade with a higher-end trim or add-on package. These often include bonus comforts such as power driver seats to adjust posture with the push of a button.

Technology

All Hyundai Tucsons offer AM/FM radio and a CD player as standard. Since 2010, models also feature satellite radio and USB ports. Newer generations have further options such as Bluetooth capability, a six-speaker stereo system and the choice of a 4.3-inch or 7-inch touchscreen display, both of which come with built-in navigation. The interface is simple and intuitive and offers smartphone compatibility through Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto®. A hands-free tailgate is an optional extra with select trims. 

Space

With less cargo space than comparable 4x4 vehicles, the Tucson might not have enough room for all drivers' needs. If that’s a concern, take a look at later models with increased capacity. For more flexibility in the cabin, some recent Tucsons feature a 60/40-split fold-down rear seat and fold-flat front passenger seat. 

Comfort

The Hyundai Tucson is packed with comfort features. Upper-level trims offer luxuries such as heated front and rear seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and a panoramic sunroof.
