2016 Hyundai Tucson Limited AWD review

One of the recent vehicles we received for review purposes was the new 2016 Hyundai Tucson Limited AWD.

In the not too distant past, I owned a Hyundai Accent. It was a bare-bones kind of car. Base model with only an automatic transmission as one of its options. It was a good car – reliable and was my wife’s first vehicle after moving here from Brazil.

So I was expecting a simple vehicle when we received the Tucson. But the Tucson was much ore than simple!

The color was brilliant and the 19 inch wheels were attention getting and something I appreciate – they were easy to keep clean.

As soon as you sit down in the Tucson, you notice the panoramic sunroof and the comfortable seats. The Tucson is called a CUV for Crossover Utility Vehicle and it rides very nicely. It has a 7 speed dual clutch transmission which feels a little different when you first start driving, but you hardly notice it after driving for a bit.

It has a 1.6L Turbocharged 4 cylinder engine that puts out 175 horsepower @ 5500 rpms with 195 lb-ft of torque @1500-4500 rpms.

Check out my video for a quick once over of the 2016 Hyundai Tucson and I highlight some of my favorite features of the CUV:

 

 

The list price of the 2016 Hyundai Tucson Limited AWD we received for review is $32,320.

I liked the vehicle and would recommend it. Try a couple other SUVs for comparison and I think you’ll agree that the Tucson’s ride is smoother than most!

Catch you later.
