2015 Hyundai Tucson – Still a Great Choice
The 2015 Hyundai Tucson has not changed much compared to the 2014 model, so buyers should know what to expect when they climb aboard the new Tucson.
Overall, that means that buyers will get a roomy interior, a nice dashboard that is also friendly to use on a daily basis, great features, and the choice of two powerful and fuel-efficient engines.
The Tucson is great for those that desire a stylish compact SUV that is not too big and therefore easy to manoeuver around town. In the compact sport utility segment, the Tucson is on the smaller side while Hyundai’s Santa Fe is positively larger. If you are looking for an SUV that will offer plenty of interior space yet remain compact enough to fit into tight parking spaces and easily get out of sticky situations in the city, check out the 2015 Hyundai Tucson!
The Hyundai Tucson is not meant to venture out of the beaten path, but who are we kidding, most SUVs in its class aren’t either. The Tucson, on the other hand, is comfortable even when the road gets rough, and the Korean crossover’s interior has plenty of space for four adults, or three kids in the back. In the cargo area, you will be able to place all your bags and boxes without too much effort, and should you need more room, the seats will fold down. We particularly like the Tucson’s interior layout as the dashboard is composed of beautiful materials and everything is well built. Moreover, it is easy to understand the Tucson’s controls, which make things a lot more pleasant on a daily basis.
Last year, the Hyundai Tucson got some pretty important upgrades under the body. New suspension as well as new direct-injection engines are part of what now sets the Tucson apart from the previous generation.
Buyers get a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine as standard. Offering 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque, it will appeal to most buyers who want decent performance when passing or accelerating, but also want a fuel-efficient vehicle that puts the emphasis on practicality. If you need more power, the Tucson can also be equipped with a 2,4-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 182 hp and 177 lb-ft. You will feel the power difference between both engines, but fuel consumption does not differ that much.
Base 2015 Tucsons come with front-wheel drive, and all-wheel drive is optional. The latter works well when winter comes around. A six-speed automatic sends power from the engine to the wheels.
