Model Highlights

For 2009, the Hyundai Tucson offers the same three trims from 2008: the entry-level GLS, the SE and the luxurious Limited.

A 140 horsepower, 2.0L 4-cylinder DOHC engine with 136 pound/feet of torque is standard on the GLS but available on all trims, and with either a 5-speed manual or a 4-speed automatic transmission. On the SE and Limited trims, a 2.7L V6 engine producing 173 horsepower and 178 pound/feet of torque is also available, but paired only with a 4-speed automatic transmission.

The Tucson is front-wheel drive, but four-wheel drive is available. SE and Limited trims are available either as four-wheel drive when ordered with the 2.7L engine.. The Electronic Torque Management all-wheel drive system can send up to 99 percent of power to the front wheels but can also send as much as 50 percent to the rear wheels when needed.

Electronic stability control (which incorporates Traction Control System), anti-lock brakes, front seat-mounted side air bags, active front head restraints and side curtain air bags that cover both rows of seating are all standard across the model line.

There is seating for five, and the rear seat is split 60/40 and folds forward easily to expand cargo space. The front passenger seat can also fold forward or backward for especially long objects. Six tie-down points are provided, and the cargo floor is made of an easy-to-clean smooth material. As with most other crossover SUVs, the back hatch lifts up, but there is also a flip-up rear window that allows convenient loading.

The GLS includes standard features such as 16-inch alloy wheels, air-conditioning, full power accessories, heated outside mirrors and a CD/MP3 stereo with satellite radio and auxiliary audio jack.

SE trims get a sportier appearance with body-side cladding, fog lamps and body-colored handles and mirrors. Standard on the SE is cruise control, premium cloth upholstery, trip computer and leather-wrapped steering wheel. SE trim when ordered with four-wheel- drive also get heated front seats and a windshield de-icer. The Limited trim adds a monochromatic exterior, leather upholstery, automatic climate control and an upgraded Kenwood audio system with a subwoofer. Limited trims with V6 engines also get a standard sunroof. Bluetooth connectivity is optional.


Model News

The 2009 Hyundai Tucson gets a new front grille and a redesigned tailgate, giving it a sportier look. Models with 4WD now get heated front seats and windshield wiper de-icers. The Limited trim comes standard with a sunroof. A new selection of alloy wheels and a charcoal black interior are available for 2009. A navigation system will become available later in 2009.

In government crash tests, the 2009 Tucson scored several 5-star ratings for front and side impact crashes. The EPA estimates mileage for the 2WD Tucson at 20 city and 26 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).
