Here at Hub Hyundai of Katy, one of our favorite new Hyundai models is the 2017 Tucson. Since its redesign last year, Tucson has been thoroughly impressing customers and industry critics alike with its upscale styling, solid performance, ride quality, and array of technologies. Here is a brief rundown of a few notable features.
- Turbocharged engine option: The Eco, Limited, and Sport trims find motivation in a turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder engine that both increases horsepower and efficiency. Paired with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission, the engine produces 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of torque. EPA-estimated ratings for the Eco reach 26 mpg city, 32 mpg highway and 28 mpg combined. The Sport and Limited trims lose just one mpg due to their larger wheels and tires.
- Enhanced smartphone integration: The 2017 model year brings the availability of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to the Tucson.
- Advanced features: The Tucson offers an array of available advanced safety and driver assistance features, including rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, lane departure warning, and front crash warning and mitigation. A rearview camera is standard on all trim levels.
