Exterior and Performance

Installed in the 2018 Tucson Value and Limited trims, a turbocharged 1.6 L engine produces 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. All other models are powered by a naturally aspirated 2.0 L engine that generates 164 hp and slightly over 150 lb-ft of torque. Both engines get fuel from a mechanism that's managed by the gasoline direct injection (GDI) technology. The Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing plays a key role in the intake of fuel and air into the cylinders. A six-speed automatic transmission with the SHIFTRONIC feature is paired with the 2.0 L engine. The turbo engine is exclusively synced with the EcoShift transmission, which utilizes double clutches to produce up to seven gear sequences. Every Tucson can be fitted with an all-wheel drive that delivers variable torque to the front and rear axles. Otherwise, a traditional front-wheel drive (FWD) is standard in this Hyundai crossover SUV.

Interior and Technology

Some of the 2018 Tucson models are furnished with seats that are wrapped in the YES Essentials cloth, which is available in beige or gray. Leather upholstery is standard in the SEL Plus and Limited trims. Heated front seats with a three-step function provide extra comfort on chilly days. Ventilated front seats and heated rear seats are optional in the well-appointed Limited edition. The climate-controlled rear seats include high and low warmth settings. The Auto Defogging and CleanAir Ionizer supplement the traditional automatic climate control system with dual zones. A timer also controls the operation of the rear window defroster. Designed to ensure a comfortable grip on cold days, a heating steering wheel is standard in the Limited. Front and rear map lights with LED bulbs are also installed in this premium model.

An 8.0-inch color touch screen is installed in the 2018 Tucson SEL Plus and Limited. The SEL and Value trims are equipped with 7-inch touch screens. A 5-inch display with a touch-screen menu is set up in the base edition. With Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, you have convenient ways to use smartphone applications in this Hyundai crossover SUV. The Blue Link Connected Car System provides other ways to sync a mobile device with the Tucson. With this signature suite, you can get vehicle diagnostics reports, maintenance alerts, performance analysis, roadside assistance and other helpful services. When you're in the mood for some music, just scan the channels on HD Radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. An eight-speaker sound system with the Clari-Fi technology optimizes acoustics from your favorite radio stations.
