2010 Hyundai Tucson Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports

Hyundai Tucson

The Tucson handles responsively and securely. Its civilized powertrain yields good fuel economy. The Hyundai also has a reasonably spacious and well-trimmed interior with easy-to-use controls. However, a stiff ride and pronounced road noise take away from the driving experience. Further, the swoopy styling robs cargo space and inhibits the view to the rear.
