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.

2017 Hyundai Tucson

Its a fantastic vehicle
I didnt even think of Hyundai when car shopping until someone advised me how much they love theirs. I went to almost all mid range dealers lookign for a small SUV. This car had all my extras at a very low cost - leather, panaramic sunroof, etc, ZERO complaints since buying it and enjoying driving it every day! The sunroof is absolutely amazing in the summer! The leather seats heat so nice in the winter to keep your bum warm! the vehcile has eco, sport and regular mode perfect to customize your driving experience. Excellent on gas also (had a dodge journey before). Small gas tank though hence the 4 stars.

great car
I have only had this for 2 months but I really like it so far. It uses a bit more gas then I am use to and insurance said it is in truck class so that went up in price compared to my last car but other then that it is roomy and a smooth ride.

2014 Hyundai Tucson

by Marney on 11-23-2017
Safe and secore ride
This car is stable and grabs the road well. It doesn't slide on water, snow or ice but hugs the road well. A great vehicle for a family with young children. We purchased it because it had room in the back seat for our 2 teenage kids who have long legs and even my hubby fits in the back seat and he's a big man.
