This 2015 Hyundai Tucson compact crossover SUV gives established players a solid run for their money in style, technology and fuel economy. Oma’s new treasure is the Front Wheel Drive version. It comes with plenty of high-tech features; a long list of standard equipment at an impressively competitive price, and Most-Importantly Hyundai's industry-leading 10-year/100,000-mile warranty!
Oma found her Tucson to supply surprisingly responsive handling. Coupled with the vehicle’s firm suspension, it is fun to drive on all kinds of roads. It’s compact size makes it super easy to maneuver into tight parking lots or in city traffic.
The Hyundai Tucson offers wide doors and a low floor, making it easy for its five passengers to get in and out. Once inside, the nicely textured and designed interior panels are easy on the eyes, even if they are mostly hard plastic. All the interior's controls are easy to reach and use, and the upscale feel of the beveled window switches is especially nice. The nicely shaped driver's seat is almost as supportive as it looks, but despite the reclining seat-backs, rear-seat passengers might find the low seat cushion height, sloping roof and small windows claustrophobic.
Despite its utility mission, the 2015 Hyundai Tucson is anything but boxy. Its styling looks downright European, with a sculpted hood, aggressive 2-tier grille and wraparound headlights. From the side, the vehicle's aerodynamic shape includes a steeply raked windshield and sloping roof-line with rear spoiler. On SE and Limited models, the silver roof rails do double duty: They help accentuate the flowing lines of the vehicle and also carry cargo. This year, Limited models get standard LED taillights.
Oma’s Limited models adds a panoramic sunroof, navigation system and an upgraded audio system. The Popular Equipment Package dresses up this ride with a rear-view camera, power driver's seat and Leatherette on the seat bolsters.
