Pros

Loads of features; value priced; safety equipment galore; the best warranties in the business; V6 engine available at competition's four-cylinder price.


Model Highlights

The 2007 Tucson's styling bears a close resemblance to the other Hyundai five-place SUV, the Santa Fe. The interior is pleasantly up-market, with high quality trim flanking the center stack. The rest of the dashboard is cleanly laid out with a fine symmetry and good quality of materials. The cloth seats are very comfortable.

Three trims are available on the Tucson: the base GLS, the mid-level SE, and the top Limited. The GLS is equipped with a 2.0L DOHC four-cylinder engine that makes 140 horsepower and 136 lb-ft of torque. The SE and Limited models get a 2.7L V6. Thanks to continuously variable valve timing, double overhead cams and four-valves-per cylinder, this engine makes 173 horsepower and 178 lb-ft of torque. A four-speed automatic transmission is optional, while a five-speed manual transmission is standard.

Besides being very comfortable to drive, the Tucson strikes us as being a great value. The GLS is well stocked, with standard stability and traction controls, ABS, a fold-flat front passenger seat, power windows, power locks, power mirrors, a CD player, and an alarm system. Air conditioning can be added for $900.

The SE upgrades include aluminum wheels, fog lamps, heated mirrors, windshield wiper deicer, cruise control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, an enhanced audio system, air conditioning, and a tire pressure monitor. The Limited trim has power heated leather seats, automatic temperature control, a six-disc CD changer, and an electrochromic rearview mirror, among other items. A sunroof can be added to both models.

We tested a V6 with AWD and found the powertrain combination to be winner. The six-cylinder engine and four-speed automatic transmission provided plenty of pep for around town cruising and seemed more than capable of keeping up with speedy interstate traffic. The Borg Warner Electronic InterActive Torque Management normally sends up to 99% of the power to the front wheels. When slip is detected, up to 50% of the torque is sent to the rear wheels. A button on the dash allows you to lock in a 50/50 front/rear split.


Model News

Since the Hyundai Tucson is a relatively new model, the 2007 model has few changes from 2006. The model lineup has been shuffled a bit, with Hyundai offering GLS, SE, and Limited trims instead of the GL, GLS and Limited. There are two new colors, copper and gray; and the silver hue has been changed. There are now two trip computers on the SE and Limited models, plus the audio system has been updated.


Value Writeup

The 2007 Hyundai Tucson is available with a four or six-cylinder engine and the V6 is priced very competitively with the competition's four-cylinder models. Standard equipment is extensive, especially in the safety department, with air bags all around included on all models. Fuel economy is among the best in its class, with the 2WD GLS earning EPA ratings of 22 city and 27 highway.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2006-2009 Accent, model year 2007-2011 Azera, Sonata and Sante Fe,2006-2011 Tucson, 2009-2011 Elantra Touring, 2007-2010 Elantra, 2008-2011 Veracruz, 2009-2011 Genesis, 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, 2007-2008 Entourage, and 2006-2008 Tiburon vehicles. Originally, in April 2013, Hyundai recalled 1,059,824 model year 2007-2009 Accent and Tucson, model year 2007-2010 Elantra, model year 2007-2011 Santa Fe, model year 2008-2009 Veracruz, model year 2010-2011 Genesis Coupe, and model year 2011 Sonata vehicles. In September 2013, Hyundai informed the agency that it was adding more vehicles to this campaign, representing an additional 652,512 units. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 1,712,336. In the affected vehicles, the stop lamp switch may malfunction. A malfunctioning stop lamp switch may cause the brake lights to not illuminate when the brake pedal is depressed or may cause an inability to deactivate the crui...

Consequence
Failure to illuminate the stop lamps during braking or inability to disengage the cruise control could increase the risk of a crash. Additionally, when the ignition is in the 'ON' position, the transmission shifter may be able to be moved out of Park without first applying the brake. This may lead to unintentional movement of the car which may increase the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the stop lamp switch, free of charge. The safety recall began on April 22, 2013. Owners may contact Hyundai at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's recall campaign number is 110.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
