Taking a look at the new Hyundai vehicles available reveals the true nature of Hyundai’s success and improvement over the last few decades. Their current vehicles are taking the lead in every field of the automotive industry. The Hyundai Tucson is a prime example of this and has become a popular choice for families across the United States. Learn about what makes this vehicle so reliable, functional and safe.
Crossovers are meant to offer as much of the utility and functionality of SUVs as possible, while delivering the fuel economy and performance of a car. Hyundai mastered this combination years ago and has been improving upon the idea ever since. The 2012 Hyundai Tucson offers up to 32 mpg on the highway through the use of a highly efficient engine and transmission. The Active ECO System contributes to this and is able to increase fuel economy by up to 7 percent. There are smarter features such as Hyundai’s active head restraint system which helps protect against whiplash. The cabin provides safety and convenience in another big way with the hands-free Bluetooth phone system.
Inside and out, the new Tucson follows a fluid design path. This not only gives it a great look, but also creates an interior that is comfortable and intuitive. The controls are personalized with features such as an 8-way adjustable driver’s seat and the tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel. The automatic climate controls turn your vehicle into a home away from home. Plus, the panoramic sunroof opens it up to the outside world for a refreshing experience. The interior can be kept even fresher with available leather seating. Additionally, you’ll find a touchscreen navigation system, making it easy to drive to your destinations without the extra hassle of searching through your phone for directions or sifting through the map. The Tucson is still conventional with rear seats that fold down, opening up over 55 cubic-feet of storage space.
The fun factor is not lost either with the 176-horsepower engine and available SHIFTRONIC 6-speed automatic transmission. Manual mode allows this transmission to appeal to the spirited drivers whenever they feel the urge. The all-wheel drive system adds the final touch of control with its integrated Intelligent Torque Controlled Coupling system.
