We have to admit, 2012 has been a pretty good year on the red carpet for Hyundai Tucson. The Car Book made it a Best Bet 2012, while Kelley Blue Book® named it one of its Top 10 Cars with Best Resale Value. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety also named Tucson a 2012 Top Safety Pick for the third consecutive year.
So what does it take to stand out among crossover vehicles? Well, it helps to create a design that turns cold steel into fluidic sculpture – turning more than a few heads in the process. And since efficient versatility is the whole reason people want a crossover in the first place, you adopt this as your motto: Space, not waste. That’s how Hyundai created the 2013 Tucson, giving it engineering substance and premium amenities to match its engaging style.
But beyond its technology and ergonomic refinement, what really sets Tucson apart is room. It has more rear legroom than Toyota RAV4, Honda CRV, Nissan Rogue and Ford Escape. And more interior passenger volume than Nissan Rogue and Ford Escape. For such a spacious vehicle, Tucson is also easy to maneuver – it has a tighter turning radius than any of the other vehicle listed above. For extra grip, Tucson is available with All Wheel Drive.
Enjoy the Great Indoors.Slip into the Tucson LIMITED, and soak up the atmosphere: The leather seats. The available premium audio and navigation systems. Dual front automatic climate controls. And proximity keyless entry with push-button start. Tucson’s generous interior integrates right-sized storage compartments at every seating position. The vehicle’s tailgate opens wide, offering easy access to a suitcase and grocery-swallowing rear compartment. Fold down the rear seats, and there’s more than 55 cubic feet of cargo space. With the navigation system’s voice recognition and NavTraffic,® you’ll be ready to load up and head off in search of adventure.
Tell It Where To Go.The available navigation system is voice-activated and connected to NavTraffic.® Its LCD touchscreen not only leads the way, but also helps upon arrival: It displays rear camera views when you shift into reverse to improve safety and ease parking.
Sunroof? More Like Solar System.The available panoramic sunroof stretches over the second row seats to reveal a huge swath of sky overhead for the enjoyment of your rear passengers. And any astronomers who happen to hitch a ride.
Hands-Off, Music On.Available voice-activated, hands-free Bluetooth® streaming audio is one of many ways to connect your favorite devices. Plug into the iPod®/USB and MP3 auxiliary input jacks (complete with iPod cable) and fill the cabin with mixes from your favorite playlists.
Seats with Heat.Tuscon LIMITED takes interior comfort seriously with a power-adjustable driver seat and seating surfaces covered in supple, expertly stitched leather. The GLS and LIMITED models both feature standard heated front seats as well.
If you like its Style, wait until you hear about its Substance.Hyundai didn’t emerge as a contender in the car business simply by offering eye-catching designs at head-turning price points. Our engineers stepped up to the challenge of making affordable vehicles that deliver high levels of performance, safety… and owner confidence. They designed Tucson’s 2.4-liter, four-cylinder engine to deliver up to 176 horsepower with an estimated 30 MPG on the highway. It also offers one of the lowest emissions of any conventional gas engine. And our engineers weren’t done – they designed Tucson to protect its passengers as well. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named Tucson a Top Safety Pick for the past three consecutive years.
