The 2015 Hyundai Tucson is one of the cheapest SUVs on the market and even so, it manages to offer a really nice balance between quality and efficiency. The 2015 Hyundai Tucson is just a facelift of the older model with a new car being scheduled for the late 2018.
Until then though, this model is going to be available on the market in one form or another. Over the previous car it has slightly upgraded engines, a more fluid styling as well as a nicer interior.
2015 Hyundai Tuscon Price
Just like before, the price is really good for such a car and considering that for just $20,000 you can’t really get much at this point, the Tucson might just be the perfect car for a small family which leaves the city on occasions. It was actually released back in the late 2014 and until now, it managed to outclass its competition by quite a big margin.
Interior of Hyundai Tuscon
On the interior there is more of the same. While all the controls are nicely laid out, the materials won’t stun anyone. However, the quality is more than sufficient and with the ample space on the back seats, the Tucson is a much roomier car than most others out there. The biggest change over the previous model is the new infotainment system which is now available as standard and it offers a 4.3 inch touch screen with an 8 speaker audio system. Satellite navigation is optional and so is the bigger screen for it.
Just as we said at first, the exterior now uses more fluid lines that give it a more sensible design. In fact, it now looks like a miniature version of the Santa Fe, its bigger brother, which is not really a bad point.
Hyundai Tucson 2015 Engine
Engine wise, the 2015 Hyundai Tucson is available with two different engines which have been carried over from the previous generation. The base car has a 2 liter engine which is slightly less powerful than before but it now has more torque. It can churn out 164 horsepower and 160 lb-ft of torque which is quite impressive for such a small engine.
The other choice is a bigger 2.4 liter engine which can offer 182 horsepower and 177 lb-ft of torque, offering a better performance level than the smaller choice and similar fuel consumption. Both of them are able to get around 24 MPG on average with the smaller 2 liter engine in the front wheel drive form being able to get 30 MPG on the highway. The only available gearbox is a 6 speed automatic which can also be had with four wheel drive in which case the car uses limited slip differentials, both in the front and at the back.
