2017 Hyundai Tucson

Buyer's Guide

Now in its third generation, Hyundai's Tucson has grown up from cut-price value option to a competitive value-driven option that's capable of running with the segment's best models. The model was completely redesigned last year and rides on an all-new platform with a more refined cabin and state-of-the-art powertrains.

Although it was launched just last year, the Tucson receives a couple of noteworthy additions. Models with cloth upholstery now receive YES Essentials fabric which repels stains, resists odours, and cuts back on static shock. Meanwhile, rear-seat riders are sure to appreciate the now-standard rear-seat air vents. Last but not least, certain trim levels of the Tucson are now available with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. This is a first for Hyundai, with other models expecting to follow suit soon.

Hyundai offers two engines with the Tucson. The entry level engine is a naturally aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder that develops 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. It comes paired exclusively to a six-speed automatic, and can be had with either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Fuel consumption for the 2.0 ranges between 10.1 - 11.0 L/100 km city and 7.8 - 9.1 L/100 km highway.

Buyers wanting a bit more power can upgrade to a turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder that produces 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It's mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch automated transmission - a first in a Hyundai crossover, and the only compact crossover currently on sale to feature this sort of transmission. All-wheel drive comes standard with the 1.6 Turbo. With an economy rating of 9.9 L/100 km city and 8.5 highway, the Tucson is one of the most economical models in the class.

Inside, the Tucson offers an attractive and functional cabin that's also well-made. Mid-level and premium models feature a large 8.0-inch touchscreen display, proximity key with push-button start, USB ports, Bluetooth, and a reverse camera. Most also receive a power driver's seat with lumbar support and a heated steering wheel. Heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, and a hands-free tailgate helps this little Hyundai crossover run toe-to-toe content-wise with rival crossovers wearing fancier badges.

If there is one area where the Tucson lags behind the competition, it's in cargo space. Overall volume is not as large as some of the key segment players, but what space is available is well utilized with an adjustable cargo floor. Buyers needing more space may wish to consider the intermediate-sized Santa Fe Sport, which also boasts a more spacious interior.

Standard safety equipment on the Tuscon includes a reverse camera, with the next-step-up Premium receiving blind-spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert. Emergency autonomous braking with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, and HID headlamps are also available, but only on the top-of-the-line Ultimate trim level.

Pricing for the latest Tucson starts at $24,799 and go up to $38,599 for the fully-loaded 1.6 Ultimate AWD.

Reliable, comfortable and fair styling. 2.0 engine is below average, and the 4 speed automatic is not great for fuel economy. Rear storage space can also be a challenge.

2006 Hyundai Tucson

Relaible No Frills Vehicle
I have been driving the 2006 Hyundai Tucson for quite a few years now and I love the reliability of this vehicle. I have had very few motor/body issues with this vehicle (knock wood).

It is a smooth ride and really, no complaints.

It is affordable and has everything I need in a vehicle. I love the little cup holders in the back for my young children, the little access into the trunk and even the grocery bag holders in the trunk. These little features really make the vehicle!

The seat is very comfortable and you can adjust it to suit your personal driving style.

The body is great and the paint shines just as well today as it did the day I drove it off the lot.

But the best is the sturdiness of my little Tucson. Aside from general maintenance, it has been a reliable vehicle. Never fails me-even on frigid minus 20 Celsius mornings-my baby starts every time!
