2018 Hyundai Tucson – Before the arrival of the Kona sub-compact crossover, the Tucson is the smallest and cheapest crossover offered by Hyundai, below the largest Santa Fe Sport and Santa Fe. Compared to sedans, the Tucson has a price higher than the compact Elantra and has a slightly higher MSRP than the medium-sized Sonata.
Admittedly, it is a small powertrain powertrain loaded to lug around 1700 kg of mass with only 130 kW and 265 Nm of torque at its disposal. But, it does, with surprising ease and flexibility, thanks to its wide band of torque – peaking from 1500-4500rpm. That’s enough for the Tucson to move away from the traffic lights with a certain degree of haste, and without much delay. And unlike the 2.0-liter models that are equipped with an automatic or six-speed manual transmission, the 1.6 turbo-gasoline is equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox exclusively – and it’s not perfect.
The 2018 Hyundai Tucson SE base has 4 cylinder and automatic base, as well as power features, air conditioning, cruise control, a rear view camera, Bluetooth with audio streaming, and a 5.0 inch touch screen for its infotainment system . This is the only Tucson still sold with a CD player, in case you would not let the 1990s die. SEL adds a 7.0-inch screen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as HD and satellite radio. These features plus rear parking sensors, dual zone automatic climate control, keyless ignition, a power hands-free tailgate and a panoramic sunroof. It also has 19-inch wheels and heated front seats. Limited-size models feature leather, an 8-inch touch screen and an Ultimate package with ventilated front seats, heated rear seats and front collision warnings with automatic emergency braking.
