2011 Hyundai Tucson Review

(4 Stars)  Close to the top of its class

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Hyundai Tucson debuted about 5 years ago and it has been sharing many different design concepts from all around the Hyundai lineup. The over exaggerated wheel arches and crease in its hood will look familiar to those who are familiar with the external design of other Hyundai's. After all was said and done the overall look and feel of the Tucson was very similar to that of the Santa Fe only slightly smaller and with some smoother styling instead of the bold feel that the Santa Fe offered.

After five years of refinement the Tucson has reached its second generation and is now one of the leaders in the Hyundai offerings in the US market, it looks nothing like the original and also offers a much more refined engine, drive train and body model. This Crossover SUV is one of the sharpest looking in all of Hyundai's models. With a slightly longer and wider wheel base the 2011 offers a more stable and capable stance. Like other Hyundai models, the Tucson has dropped the V-6 option, but added more powerful 4 cylinder engine options. This year's Tucson also offers a 5 speed automatic transmission or a 6 speed automatic.
