     Hyundai Tucson AWD 2018

Hyundai AWD Tucson 2018 falls under crossover SUV category. The Hyundai AWD Tucson is entry-level mini SUV for all the people who prefer SUV instead of a sedan in the same price, therefore Hyundai Tucson starts at price of just $24,276. Thus the minimum price gets you a lot of nice options and features when it comes to styling, driving and sitting on the inside. The Hyundai AWD Tucson is simply a good bargain for the price it comes.

Hyundai Tucson is powered by 2.0l I-4 engine with AWD drivetrain with 6-speed automatic transmission. This makes the engine generate 164hp and a mileage of 21mpg during a daily drive in city whereas 26mpg on the highway. The engine and performance of Tucson isn’t generally a great deal as it lacks athleticism during the pedal pulls, however the engine gives enough power to drive it smoothly on the road. The handling once again isn’t as sharp as in other competitors however it gets the job done nicely.

The entertainment and features section of Tucson include a 7-inches infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay along with heated seats. The higher priced trims have panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery, navigation and ventilated seats. The Tucson is offered in following trims.

Trims Levels & Features Differences:

Tucson SE:

The base model comes with 5-inches infotainment panel. 17-inches wheels, 6-way manual driver seat adjustment, steering controls of audio, cruise and phone dialing. The engine is standard 2.0l I-4 engine.

Tucson SEL:

The SEL has a 7.0-inches infotainment panel with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. LED daytime running lights, roof rails, heated front seats and 8-way power driver seat adjustable.

Tucson Value:

The Value trim replaces 2.0l I-4 engine with 1.6l turbo engine adding 19-inches alloy wheels to the bottom. Blind spot monitor, rear-cross traffic alert, lane assist, dual automated climate control, LED map lights, panoramic sunroof, parking sensors, leather wrapped gear knob and steering wheels includes the list of ad-on the value trims brings.

Tucson SEL Plus:

The SEL Plus trim brings a larger 8.0 inches touch panel with navigation, air vents for rear seats, Infinity premium Audio system, premium instrumental panel and eight-way powered adjustable driver seat. However the SEL Plus trim drives with 2.0l I-4 engine as in SE and SEL trim.

Tucson Limited:

The limited trim replaces 2.0l engine with 1.6l turbocharged engine. In addition it has heated steering wheel and chrome grills along with LED head and rear lamps.

The ultimate package in Tucson offers steering controlled LED headlamps, emergency braking, lane departure warning and heated rear seats.

Comfortable and Passenger focused:

As for the interior room the Hyundai AWD Tucson 2018 has 31 cubic-feet of space with rear seats in place. The legroom for rear passengers is 38.2 inches and for front ones it is 41 inches. The Hyundai AWD Tuscon 2018 design is clearly focused on passenger space rather than the cargo space which is actually good because it is more practical. The comfort of Tucson also lives up to the expectation with comfy padded spots for possible passenger encounter with interior sides in the SUV. Hyundai AWD Tuscon 2018 comes with a five year warranty or 60,000 miles whereas the powertrain warranty is for 10 years or 100,000 miles.

Competitors & Personal Point of view:

Hyundai AWD Tuscon 2018 shares the rivalry board with Honda CRV and Mazda CX-5. While the Honda CRV offers more cabin space, more mileage and some other additional features it does comes with extra amount of money. Similar is the case with Mazda CX-5 as it offers better interior, driving experience and aesthetic drive from the Tucson. Therefore both the competitors of Hyundai Tucson clearly rank above it when it comes to choosing the best SUV for yourself.

The Tucson is recommended in the case when you are really shopping on the budget trying to save money on the purchase. Otherwise the Honda CRV and Mazda CX-5 are far better options than the Tucson quite seriously. Henceforth the Tucson might not top it in the league but it does delivers a good drive and comfort driving around the town. As for the question which trim to buy, in my opinion the Value trim makes it up for the right price and performance with bigger faster engine and handful of options. Therefore the Value trim is recommended if you opt to purchase Hyundai Tucson.
