There's no shortage of compact SUVs vying for buyers' attention, but the Hyundai Tucson remains an appealing choice. Last year Hyundai added some much-needed space to the rear seats and trunk area, upping the Tucson's practicality and family friendliness. It also increased the value, sharpening up the design inside and out, while retaining its fun-to-drive character. That makes the 2017 Tucson a very worthwhile choice among cars such as the Ford Edge, Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, and Toyota RAV4, as well as its closely related Kia Sportage.
Why pick the Tucson? Its value is a big draw, as every Tucson comes very well equipped. We’d suggest taking a step up from the base SE, if only to ensure you get the brisker-performing 1.6-liter turbocharged gasoline engine over the base model's 2.0-liter non-turbo engine. All are automatics, and the Tucson comes standard with front-wheel drive and offers all-wheel drive as an option. A fine all-rounder that looks great and drives just as nicely, the Tucson is well worth considering.

One of the best features of an SUV is the ability to customize the cargo area for your specific needs. With its split-folding rear seat, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson is no exception. With the rear seat in the upright position, the Tucson provides 31 cubic feet of cargo space, which can be expanded to 61.9 cubic feet with the rear seat folded down. Because of its split-folding nature, retaining a portion of the rear seat while also expanding cargo capacity is an easy task as well.
For the 2017 model year, the Tucson has two engine options. Both are available with all-wheel drive, making the 2017 Hyundai Tucson an attractive choice for just about any climate. Regardless of the engine, the AWD Tucson is a sure-footed companion when the weather takes a turn or when the pavement ends.
The 2017 Hyundai Tucson comes standard with a 2.0L four-cylinder engine, which is naturally aspirated, but a 1.6L turbocharged engine is an option. Turbo models have additional interior features that aren't available with the 2.0L. Despite being a smaller displacement engine, the 1.6L turbo provides more power, pushing out 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. The 1.6L engine also has the highest mpg of the two options, getting an EPA-estimated 24/28 mpg (highway/city) when configured with all-wheel drive.
Hyundai introduced several new standard features for the 2017 Tucson. A rearview camera is standard on all models, as is emergency brake assist and four-wheel ABS. Convenient steering-wheel-mounted buttons for the audio system and cruise control keep your hands where they need to be, and remote keyless entry is also standard.
The 2017 Hyundai Tucson is composed and nimble on the road. Its quiet cabin and confident handling make this SUV a competent road companion. Paired with a roomy interior, this makes the 2017 Tucson a great choice for vacations and road trips.
