2017 Hyundai Tucson Review

You can't judge a book by its cover, and you can't judge the Hyundai Tucson by its place in the compact SUV segment. That's because the 2017 Hyundai Tucson offers exceptionally roomy seating for five that can stand up to some midsize and large SUVS!

Here are some of the Tucson's main cabin dimensions:

  • 39.6 inches of front-seat headroom and 41.5 inches of front-seat legroom
  • 39.2 inches of rear-seat headroom and 38.2 inches of rear-seat legroom
  • 31 cubic feet of cargo room with all seats in place and 61.9 cubic feet with all seats folded

 What you can judge the Tucson by is its stylish exterior that features swooping body lines, sleek lighting, and eye-catching outer accents. This alluring theme continues into the Tucson interior where quality materials mingle and top technology takes center stage.

Technology in the 2017 Hyundai Tucson

Across its six trim levels, the Hyundai Tucson offers the standard technology you need and the connectivity you crave, making it easy to find your desired level of technology.

  • Bluetooth® hands-free calling
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and HD Radio™
  • 8-inch touchscreen with navigation system

One of the biggest changes to the 2017 Hyundai Tucson's features menu is the addition of Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility. These leading smartphone integration systems make your go-to phone functions like maps, messaging, and music playlists ready to tap or access with voice commands at the center dashboard screen.

Performance and Safety Scores

 The Hyundai Tucson's design is inspired by the feeling of fluidity and forward momentum. Its under-the-hood equipment makes that notion a reality by smoothly powering your drives.

Here are some of the 2017 Tucson's performance highlights:

  • 164 to 175 horsepower
  • Up to an EPA-estimated 23 city/30 highway MPG
