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.
