That the Tucson remains such a compelling buy, even so late in its model cycle, is testament to Hyundai’s focus on creating a fine-driving, value-packed compact SUV. And compact it is, as many rivals do offer more space—both for passengers and in the trunk. But if you don’t need that, the Tucson is a good choice, as well as a cinch to park. The Hyundai brand's pillar of value is difficult to ignore as the base GLS model comes with everything you could reasonably want as standard. The SE trim level above it borders on luxurious, and the top-of-the-line Limited comes fully loaded with equipment. Add a long warranty into the mix and the Tucson is difficult to ignore, even in its twilight years.
Two engines are offered. The base 2.0-liter can be sluggish; for more power, you'll need the 2.4-liter in the SE and Limited. Both engines are paired to a six-speed automatic—front-wheel drive is standard, and all-wheel drive is an option—and get reasonable EPA fuel economy estimates. If Hyundai can add some space to the new Tucson coming for 2016, this impressive package will get even better.

The 2015 Hyundai Tucson ensures there are no limits to the roads you can take. Want to head to the mountains? Features like downhill brake control help maintain a steady speed while you circle down mountain passes. On top of that, hill-start assist minimizes backward roll when you release the brake on an uphill slope—handy for city inclines as well as country roads. Heading out of your comfort zone with an SUV that's got you covered is a great feeling.
Not only is the 2015 Tucson well equipped across its three trims, but it also offers two great packages. The base GLS trim has an available Popular Equipment Package that adds a 4.3-inch infotainment touchscreen with rearview camera, automatic headlights, and upgraded seating. The range-topping Limited trim's available Tech Package adds a larger touchscreen, premium audio, and panoramic sunroof. These packages offer significant upgrades that make everyday differences.
Because staying connected matters more than ever, the 2015 Tucson's Bluetooth voice command keeps you in control of your life so you can stay focused on the road. Its wireless audio streaming means your loved ones can also access their favorite playlists. Is the music too loud? No problem. Steering-wheel-mounted audio controls keep you in charge of the volume.
The best SUVs deliver passenger comfort as a priority, and the 2015 Tucson does just that. Rear privacy glass is standard—a welcome essential for your youngest passengers on long trips. Your second-row passengers also benefit from two-stage reclining rear seats, while the available front heated seats and standard illuminated cup holders will keep you comfortable on your daily commute.
The 2015 Tucson has highly responsive handling more akin to a hatchback, thanks to its rear multi-link suspension. Heading into the city? Take the Tucson—its turning radius of just 34.7 ft means parking maneuvers are a cinch, while 25.7 cubic feet of cargo space will take care of your shopping bags.
