Hyundai Tucson Overview

The Tucson is an unexceptional small SUV that's available in front- and all-wheel drive versions. Its raspy 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine returns a decent 22-mpg overall, and the six-speed automatic is smooth and responsive. Handling is secure but uninspiring. The ride is stiff, and road noise is pronounced, which makes the Tucson feel insubstantial, particularly when compared with newer competitors. The cabin is fairly spacious, with easy-to-use controls and up-to-date connectivity. The front seats are supportive, but the rear seat is low and lacks thigh support. A rear-view camera is a must, but it isn't standard. Styling also inhibits the view to the rear and robs cargo space. The Tucson scored a Poor in the IIHS small-overlap crash test. A redesigned model is due this summer.
