2012 Hyundai Tucson ReviewJun 26th, 2012
A Bold Look For Hyundai with the 2012 Tucson.
If you are looking for something a little out of the ordinary but is still classy, has simple controls, a good fuel economy, sporty handling and holds a strong value, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson crossover is a spectacular choice. For 2012, Hyundai has made a few changes to the Tucson. A better fuel economy is one of them. This was achieved by low-rolling-resistance tires and a new Active Eco system that modifies engine and transmission response. The suspension has been improved over years past. Also some of the models have new standard features.
The overall appearance of the 2012 Hyundai Tucson is daring but subtle.The edgy styling of this Hyundai crossover is something that is newish for this manufacturer who is known for its more low-key designs. So the Tucson is an option for those wanting to make a statement with the aggressive rear spoiler and the bold hexagonal front grille. The Tucson also has many colour options and comes with a 17” steel wheel with wheel cover with 225/60R17 tires.
The interior of the 2012 Hyundai Tucson is a mixture of beauty and masculinity. Bold accents and modern classiness make for a spectacular cabin that will have you feeling like you are riding in a luxury vehicle, but you will be smirking because you didn’t pay that price. Inside you will find the best in new technology: AM/FM/CD/Aux/MP3/USB Stereo with 6 speakers, convenient touch-screen navigation, power windows and door locks and air conditioning.
There are a lot of different trim levels to ensure that you get what you want out of your 2012 Hyundai Tucson: L 5 Speed Manual, L, GL, GL AWD, GLS, GLS AWD, LImited AWD and Limited AWD with Navigation. Talk about value. The engine in Tucson is mated with an awesome 5-speed manual transmission (standard on L) or an optional 6-speed automatic with Shiftronic technology.
