With its focus more on the "sport" than the "utility" element of "sport-utility vehicle," the Hyundai Tucson rewards its driver with solid steering and an adept suspension that make it one of the most fun-to-drive compact SUVs around. To make the most of those qualities, you’ll want the 2.4-liter engine with its 176 hp output. The larger engine comes with GLS and Limited trim levels, and the slight increase in power over the 165 hp 2.0-liter in the base GL is worth the price. Opt for the GLS and you benefit from more standard equipment, too, including 17-inch alloy wheels, an upgraded suspension, automatic headlights, cruise control, Bluetooth® connectivity, and a more comfortable driving position thanks to a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel.
The top-level Limited trim adds luxuries like leather upholstery and a six-way power-adjustable driver’s seat, but it also brings larger 18-inch alloy wheels, which do little to improve the firm ride quality. EPA-estimated fuel economy is competitive against its key rivals, but if you’re mostly after practicality you’ll be better served elsewhere. The Tucson is tight on rear passenger space and has a smaller-than-average trunk.
