What You Will Like

The Hyundai Tucson competes in a very crowded small crossover segment, sized right between compacts like the Mazda CX-3 or Honda HR-V and the larger Toyota RAV4, Ford Escape and Honda CR-V. The Tucson shines in the interior space it affords, for both cargo and passengers, and adults will find themselves right at home in the back seat -- a rarity in vehicles like this. Efficiency, too, will attract buyers, particularly with the sprightly 1.6L turbo, which rewards in both acceleration and fuel economy, offering up to 33 mpg on the highway in Eco trim.

Introduction

The Hyundai Tucson is the smallest of the brand’s compact crossovers. Last redesigned for the 2016 model year, Tucson is in its third generation.

Some equipment groups have been adjusted for the 2018 model year. What had been the SE Popular Equipment Package has been renamed SEL, adding a 7.0-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. SE Plus, introduced during 2017, is now SEL Plus. During 2017, Sport trim was replaced by Value trim. SiriusXM radio is now included with SEL trim, rather than SE. HD radio now is standard in SEL trim and up. Only the SE edition now gets a CD player. Limited AWD models include a heated steering wheel.

Focusing on utility rather than passion, the South Korean automaker maintains a relatively simple, yet engaging design theme. Blending refined ride quality with quiet dependability, the Tucson doesn’t necessarily excel in any specific attribute. Passenger space and performance might trail some rivals, but a Tucson can be counted on to simply accomplish its mission effectively.

Hyundai offers five Tucson trim levels: SE, SEL, Value, Eco, and Limited. In base Tucsons, a 164-horsepower four-cylinder engine mates with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Also available is a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder, producing 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. A 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission couples with the turbo. Front-drive is standard, with all-wheel drive an option.

Tucson Eco is rated by EPA at 26/32/28 mpg City/Highway/Combined.

Every Tucson has a rearview camera, but advanced safety technology is largely restricted to the Limited trim level, at best.

Crash-test scores have been good, though ratings are not yet available for 2018 models. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration gave the 2017 Tucson a five-star overall rating, with five stars for both frontal and side impacts. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave Tucson a Top Safety Pick award. A weaker score for headlights kept the Tucson from earning Top Safety Pick+ status.

Only the most costly model includes forward-collision warning and automatic emergency braking. Both Value and Limited editions feature blind-spot monitoring, and the Limited adds lane-departure warning and parking sensors.

Rather than offer option packages, Hyundai bundles a number of features into specific trim levels. They include leather upholstery, navigation, a panoramic sunroof, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.

Lineup

Tucson SE ($22,700) comes with the 164-hp 2.0-liter engine and 6-speed automatic, plus air conditioning, cruise control, a rearview camera, Bluetooth with audio streaming, a 5.0-inch infotainment touchscreen, CD player, and 17-inch alloy wheels.

Tucson Eco ($24,150) gets the turbo-four engine, dual-clutch transmission, special wheels and tires.

Tucson Value Edition ($26,550) upgrades to the turbocharged engine and adds rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, pushbutton start, a hands-free power liftgate, panoramic sunroof, and 19-inch wheels.

Tucson Limited ($29,775) features leather seating surfaces, power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a hands-free liftgate, 8.0-inch touchscreen with navigation, and 19-inch wheels. The Ultimate option package includes active-safety features. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Walkaround

No awkward body lines or tacky flaws mar the skillfully crafted sheetmetal of the Tucson. It’s a model of simplicity and clean design, highlighted by short window area.

The Tucson’s six-edged grille isn’t far removed from other Hyundai crossover front ends. Neither are the geometrically derived headlights. Viewed from the side, in fact, the Tucson looks like a downsized duplicate of the large three-row Santa Fe. Inspiration probably came from the midlevel Santa Fe Sport, too.

The Hyundai Tucson is a little smaller than the Honda CR-V.

For a more majestic look, the 19-inch wheels on upper trim levels might be worth considering.

Interior

Tucson’s conservatively designed cabin is scrupulously arranged. The base Tucson SE suffers from hard plastic trim, but upper-level models have less of the tawdry plastic marring the view of interior surfaces. Leather-upholstered Limited editions feature soft-touch plastics, plus stitching atop the gauges.

Also laid out carefully, the dashboard conveys a look of elegant simplicity. Positioning of instruments and controls is excellent, and no nonessential graphics clutter the dials. Some functions are controlled by console buttons; others belong to the touchscreen. One caution: many knobs and buttons are similarly shaped, thus demanding a quick glance before adjusting.

Front and rear seats are carefully-shaped for four adults. Front occupants enjoy amply-bolstered, comfortable seats, regardless of trim level.

Rear seatbacks are rather upright, but can be reclined. Tall riders can expect abundant space, with good clearance for heads and knees. A fifth passenger, however, is likely to feel squeezed.

Cargo space trails that of some competitors, including the Honda CR-V. Volume totals 30.1 cubic feet, growing to 61.9 cubic feet when seatbacks are folded. In addition, the cargo floor can be lowered.

Driving Impressions

Despite being smaller than some rivals, the Tucson’s suspension and tires yield a well-damped, controlled ride. Only with 19-inch wheels does the ride turn firm. Still, some jarring can occur, at least for an instant, when crossing expansion joints or tackling harsh pavement.

Sportiness is minimal, as the Tucson focuses on predictable handling. That’s typical in the small-crossover category, as is largely lifeless electric power steering.

Not only is the SE’s base engine short on power, it’s not more frugal with fuel than the more satisfying turbo four used in the other models.

Smooth-running and more than sufficiently powered for typical usage, even the turbo can feel limited when filled with people and luggage. Shifts from the turbo’s dual-clutch automatic transmission occur smoothly, without notable delay. Even in Sport mode, though, takeoffs can feel somewhat sluggish. When starting off, the non-turbo engine actually feels a tad more responsive.

On slippery surfaces with optional all-wheel drive, a switch can lock the torque split between front and rear wheels, for best low-speed traction. All-wheel drive also includes torque vectoring, which enhances cornering performance.

Fuel economy is decent, especially with turbo power. The 2017 model with 2.0-liter engine and front-drive was EPA-rated at 23/30 mpg City/Highway, or 26 mpg Combined. All-wheel-drive lowered the estimate to 21/26/23 mpg.

With the 1.6-liter turbo, front-drive Tucsons were EPA-rated at 25/30 mpg City/Highway, or 27 mpg Combined. All-wheel dropped that estimate to 24/28/25 mpg. Tucson Eco with front-drive was EPA-rated at 26/32 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined, dipping to 25/30/27 mpg with all-wheel drive.

Summary

Every Tucson trim level is reasonably well-equipped., though not many options are available for personalization. Midlevel models tend to be the most satisfying compromise in value, and turbo engines are the most rewarding to drive. Hyundai’s excellent warranty raises the desirability quotient.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
