Test Drive 2017 Hyundai Tucson by Aurora CO

Vehicle Overview

By the 2017 model year, the Hyundai Tucson has already built a reputation for being one of the better compact crossover SUVs around, even though it is one of the newest ones. Hyundai had kicked off its third production cycle the year before, so the 2017 edition does not have any major changes. However, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto-which enables you to execute infotainment functions with your smartphone-is now standard on the top-of-the-line trim. The 2017 Tucson is available in four trims: SE, Eco, Sport, and Limited.

Interior - Schedule Your 2017 Hyundai Tucson Test Drive

InteriorDesigned as a two-row, five people-seating vehicle, the 2017 Tucson provides a cabin that includes a passenger volume of 102.2 cubic feet. Thanks to a 60/40 split-folding bench-style rear seat, you can expand trunk space into the cabin, thus providing up to 61.9 cubic feet of cargo space. On the Eco, the driver's seat gets 8-way power adjustability with power lumbar support. Upgrading to the Sport adds heating capability for both front seats. And on the top-level Limited, the front passenger seat joins the driver's side in having 6-way power adjustability, and all seats are leather-appointed. At the base level, the 2017 Tucson has features like steering wheel-mounted controls, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free phone calls and audio streaming, and a six-speaker audio system that includes AM/FM radio, a single-disc CD player with MP3 playback ability, SiriusXM satellite radio service, and a 5-inch color touchscreen. The Limited, which is the most luxury oriented of the four trims, comes with a lot more: an auto-dimming rearview mirror, HomeLink for remotely controlling garage doors, Blue Link telematics for a suite of service that includes SOS emergency assistance and car service scheduling, proximity key entry with push-button engine start (just like the Sport trim), dual front automatic climate control, HD Radio, an eight-speaker audio system, and an 8-inch color touchscreen navigation system.

Exterior

Like its immediate predecessor, the 2017 Tucson uses the Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language, which is characterized by a more angular, conservative exterior profile than the previous Tucson generation, which used Fluidic Sculpture "1.0." The halogen headlights are fully automatic, which means that they automatically turn on or off depending on the amount of outdoor illumination. If you get any model above the base-level SE trim, Hyundai adds a pair of fog lights below the headlights to improve viewing ability in foggy or very dark situations. Also, the headlights will get LED bulbs that automatically turn on in the daytime. The Limited gets the full treatment with a replacement of the halogen headlight bulbs with LED ones that are manufactured to last longer. Fold-away heated power mirrors-enhanced by the addition of turn-signal indicators on the Limited-are attached to the front doors. On top of the Tucson are roof rack side rails for added cargo carrying capability-provided that you choose the Eco, Sport, or Limited. At the back, the standard rear spoiler is joined by a hands-free smart liftgate on the Sport and Limited. Regardless of trim, the 2017 Tucson rides on alloy wheels, albeit 17 inches on the SE and Eco and 19 inches on the Sport and Limited.

Mechanical / Powertrain - Tucson Information
Powertrain

The base-level SE trim is powered by the 2.0-liter Theta II inline 4-cylinder (I4) engine, which generates 164 horsepower at 6,200 RPM and 151 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM. It is harnessed to a six-speed automatic transmission, which comes with SHIFTRONIC technology to shift gears on demand. The other trims rely on the smaller yet turbocharged 1.6-liter Gamma I4, which has an output of 175 horsepower at 5,500 RPM and 195 lb-ft of torque at up to 4,500 RPM. The gearbox paired with the Gamma engine is a 7-speed EcoShift dual clutch automatic transmission, which is manufactured to deal with odd-numbered gears and even-numbered gears separately for smoother and more efficient operation. Front-wheel drive is standard on the Tucson, although you can go with an all-wheel drive system to improve overall driving performance. A front MacPherson strut suspension and rear multi-link suspension keep you cushioned from the turbulence of uneven road surfaces, and column-mounted motor-driven rack-and-pinion power steering helps with precise turning and cornering.

Safety

Auto collision protection on the 2017 Tucson is provided by dual front impact, dual front seat-mounted side airbags. Also standard are a rearview camera as a video monitor when driving in reverse, driver's blind spot mirror to heighten awareness of vehicles you can't see, electronic stability control for keeping you on the intended driving path, and traction control to prevent skidding. The four-wheel disc brakes come with anti-lock braking to prevent wheel lock-up, electronic brake-force distribution for proper allocation of stopping force, and brake assist for additional stopping ability when necessary. On the upper-level Sport and Limited, Hyundai adds lane change alert, blind spot detection, and rear cross-traffic alert.
