Hyundai's 2018 Tucson lineup has been revised with new trim levels, and a new engine joins the lineup for even more choice. Trim levels are now SE, SEL, Sport, SEL Plus, Value, and Limited. The SE and the new SEL and SEL Plus trim levels are all powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine with 164 hp. The Sport is the sole recipient of a new 181 hp 2.4-liter engine. And the Value and Limited come with a 1.6-liter four-cylinder that, thanks to a turbocharger, produces 175 hp. Front-wheel drive is standard on all trims, and all-wheel drive is offered as an option.
Each trim level offers decent standard equipment, but the Value does exactly what you'd expect of it, mating arguably the best engine choice—both for performance and EPA-estimated fuel economy—with a useful mix of standard equipment. All models feature a well-laid-out cabin. Cheap-looking plastics hint at cost-cutting, but the fit feels good throughout. The Tucson trails some rivals in outright practicality, but if you can get by with less trunk space, it is a compelling choice for a compact SUV.

In addition to a host of connected diagnostic and roadside assistance features, Bluelink® also allows you to remotely start, lock, and unlock your Tucson, as well as find it in a crowded parking lot. Connectivity definitely has its perks.
