For the 2013 model year, Hyundai delights Tucson buyers by increasing the number of standard features on both Tucson GLS and the top-of-the-line Tucson Limited.
The new standard features on Tucson GLS are fog lights, automatic headlight control and heated front seats. The Limited trim level gains proximity key entry with push button start. Tucson packages these luxury comfort features with up to 32 mpg on the highway and a distinctive design making it a sophisticated Crossover Utility Vehicle for active lifestyles.
Tucson's athletic design language is highlighted by bold, dynamic graphic elements such as the Hyundai family hexagonal front grille, aggressive lower air intake, sculptured hood creases, swept back headlights, and sleek greenhouse and wraparound taillights.
The entry-level Tucson GL is equipped with a high output 2.0-liter II four-cylinder engine that produces 165 horsepower and 146 lb.-ft. of torque. Tucson GLS and Limited models feature the Theta II 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine. The Theta II is rated at 176 horsepower and 168 lb.-ft. of torque.
Tucson automatic transmission models feature Hyundai's Active ECO System. Active ECO modifies engine and transmission control to smooth out throttle response. By turning on Active ECO, drivers can realize up to a 7 percent increase in real-world fuel economy.
The high-tech cockpit comes standard with Hyundai's signature blue lighting, proximity key with push button start, power windows, power door locks, fold-away mirrors and remote keyless entry with alarm and panic button. A Bluetooth hands-free phone system with voice recognition and steering wheel audio and cruise controls are also available.
