Pros

Class-leading fuel efficiency; responsive powertrains; rear passenger space; smooth ride; generous standard features; safety features


Value Writeup

The Tucson has a lot going for it when matched up against the competition. With either available engine, the Tucson has some of the highest combined and highway fuel economy ratings in its class. The Tucson has a longer wheelbase than its rivals yet has one of the shortest turning diameters, which keeps it settled and stable on the open road yet also maneuverable in tight spaces. Hyundai also notes that there is more interior space than in some vehicles a class larger and rear-seat legroom is class-leading.


Model Highlights

The Hyundai Tucson comes in three trims: the base-model GL, the GLS and the Limited. While the Hyundai GLS and Limited come with a 176-hp, 2.4L 4-cylinder engine, the Tucson GL features a 2.0L version rated at 165 hp. Both engines have continuously variable camshaft timing for responsiveness without giving up efficiency. Hyundai has saved a lot of weight in the Tucson's body by using high-strength steel. Fuel economy ratings that were previously best-in-class are further improved thanks to the new Active ECO System, which modifies engine and transmission controls to smooth throttle response. Overall efficiency is estimated at 21 mpg city, 30 highway with the 2.4L and automatic and 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway with the smaller engine.

On GL models, a 5-speed manual transmission is standard, with an optional 6-speed automatic. The 6-speed auto is standard on all GLS and Limited models. The automatic in the Tucson comes with Shiftronic manual control, and has very smooth shifts while downshifting responsively to make the most of the larger engine.

Front-wheel drive is standard on the Tucson, though an all-wheel drive system is available. The system sends power only to the front wheels in normal driving but sends more to the back as needed--or also has a 50/50 lock mode, good for slippery conditions such as snow or mud.

The Tucson has an absorbent ride and a quiet, refined interior feel, thanks to a suspension arrangement that uses stabilizer bars front and back; the electric power steering system varies its effort for various vehicle speeds and helps save fuel. Its turning circle of 34.7 feet is the best in its class, according to Hyundai.

Hyundai has, just as with its other vehicles, piled on the standard safety features. The list includes electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, Hillstart Assist Control and Downhill Brake Control for confidence on slippery slopes, front active head restraints, a total of six airbags with both front side and full-length side-curtain airbags.

While the Tucson isn't much larger than other compact crossovers, its long wheelbase pays off with an especially roomy interior. The back seat is quite spacious, with enough legroom for adults and the front seats have additional seat track to accommodate tall drivers. Back seats fold forward flat for a large cargo area, and the Tucson has lots of smaller cubbies and compartments for everything from sunglasses to extra drinks.

The Tucson GL starts at well under $20,000 and includes air conditioning, power windows and locks, keyless entry, tilt steering and a trip computer. The GLS adds alloy wheels, fog lights, a telescoping steering column, leather trim, heated front seats, Bluetooth hands-free calling, and roof rails, while the Limited adds 18-inch alloys, leather seats, a power driver seat, solar front glass, a windshield wiper de-icer and a premium suspension that has adaptive selective dampers.

A touch-screen navigation system and premium audio system, with Bluetooth audio streaming capability, iPod, USB and auxiliary inputs is optional. XM Satellite Radio is also available. The Limited offers a navigation system and an optional sunroof.


Model News

The Hyundai Tucson is virtually unchanged for 2013. Minor improvements include fog lights and automatic headlight control on the GLS model, proximity key entry with pushbutton start on Limited models and heated front seats on front-wheel-drove GLS models.

Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. 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.
