Just a few days ago, Hyundai released the redesigned 2016 Hyundai Tucson. Now, with its arrival of dealerships coming this month, the Korean automaker has revealed pricing for the sharp new crossover.
The 2016 Tucson will be available in four trim levels, SE, Eco, Sport, and Limited. The SE model will act as the base model, the Eco will deliver the performance of a turbocharged engine and increased fuel economy, the Sport model will feature special design features and improved driving dynamics, and the Limited model will deliver all the premium materials you could want in a crossover.
The SE trim level will comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that delivers 164 horsepower and 151 pound-feet of torque. In its base front-wheel-drive setup, the Tucson SE will start at $22,700, and all-wheel drive will push the price to $24,100.
Starting from the Eco trim and moving upward through the Sport and Limited trims, all models come standard with the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine that injects 175 horsepower and 195 pound-feet of twist. This engine also teams up with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission to deliver up to 26 mpg city and 33 mpg highway (FWD). With all-wheel drive, these numbers fall to 25 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
The Eco trim level with front-wheel drive starts from $24,150, while the all-wheel-drive version commands at least $25,550. The Sport trim level starts at $26,150 with front-wheel drive, while al-wheel drive bumps the price to $27,550. Finally, the Limited trim with front-wheel drive starts from $29,900, and the addition of all-wheel drive pushes the price to $31,300.
With the 2016 Tucson, you not only get an updated look, but you also get a larger cabin thanks to a body that is 3 inches longer and 1.1 inch wider, and a wheelbase that is 1.2 inches longer. You also get a more upscale feel than the Tucson’s ever offered thanks a to soft-touch pad by the driver’s right knee, an available leather-wrapped instrument panel, a more refined gear shifter, additional soft-touch materials, and an optional full-length moonroof.
Countless other refinements on the 2016 Tucson are bound to make it a tough competitor in the compact crossover segment. Keep an eye out for it at dealers, as it is set to arrive later in July 2015.
