A staple of both our South Korean automaker's lineup and the larger SUV segment, the Hyundai Tucson is sure to make one heck of a compelling bid for your business. Read on to learn what makes this crossover such a popular pick amongst consumers in our native St. Paul, White Bear Lake, Minneapolis, Roseville, MN region.
There are two distinctive drivetrain options within the Tucson model range. The first - offered on the base GLS - is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder, rated at a respectable 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. On higher trim levels - the SE and Limited - the SUV gets a slightly bigger, brawnier 2.4-liter four-cylinder. Good for 182 horsepower and 177 pound-feet of torque.
No matter your powertrain preference, though, a six-speed automatic gearbox and front-wheel drive are standard, though either engine can be optioned with all-wheel drive, if you so prefer.
There are three, unique trim levels within the Tucson family, too. The entry-level GLS gets things going with standard features like 17-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights, a rear spoiler, trip computer, 60/40-split-folding rear seatbacks, Bluetooth compatibility, satellite radio, as well as iPod/USB audio functionality.
Climb the trim ladder to the top rung and there you'll find the seriously spiffy Limited model. Standard equipment on this iteration includes 18-inch wheels, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, a retractable rear cargo cover, and added chrome accents to the exterior.
