2021 Hyundai Tucson Review: What's New

Hyundai offers a very robust SUV lineup, and because of that, some models might get lost in the shuffle. However, it is now the Hyundai Tucson's time to shine. Sandwiched between the smaller Hyundai Kona and larger Hyundai Palisade, the Tucson offers many luxury and convenience features that rival the offerings of its main class competitors--the Toyota RAV4 and Honda CR-V.

 

 

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson is available in five model variations: Essential, Preferred, Luxury, Urban Edition, and Ultimate. Starting at $26,099, the base Essential model includes high-quality features, such as a 7-inch touchscreen display, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity, three-stage heated seats, Bluetooth, and driver-assist technologies. The standard engine on the 2021 Hyundai Tucson is a 2.0-litre four-cylinder that delivers 160 horsepower.

 

Models and Pricing

 

While the Ultimate includes every feature Hyundai has to offer, the best Tucson model for the money is the Luxury. Offered at $34,799, the Luxury model offers an optional upgrade to a 181-hp 2.4-litre four-cylinder engine, as well included high-end features such as all-wheel drive, a heated steering wheel, leather seats, sunroof, surround-view monitor, a smart power liftgate, blind-spot collision warning with lane change assist, and smart proximity key with push-button ignition.

Inside, the Tucson focuses its attention on the driver with soft-touch materials, intuitive controls, and standard cloth seats that resist stains, repel odours, and reduce static. In terms of cargo capacity, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson offers a respectable 877 L of cargo capacity with the rear seats up and 1,754 L with the rear seats folded down.

 

Technology

 

Every model of the 2021 Hyundai Tucson is outfitted with safety features and driver-assist technologies to keep drivers, passengers, and pedestrians safe. The Tucson comes standard with a remote keyless entry system with alarm, forward collision-avoidance assist lane departure warning with lane-keeping assist, and driver's blind spot mirror. Hyundai also offers additional technologies on the higher-end models, or at an additional cost, including such as pedestrian detection, lane change assist, parking distance warning, rear cross-traffic collision warning, and more.

 

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson is spacious, comfortable, well equipped, and fun to drive. It is a solid choice in the compact SUV category, especially considering Hyundai offers the best warranty in the business.
