For 2012, the Hyundai Tucson receives small changes primarily aimed at improving fuel economy. Among them is the addition of low rolling resistance tires, a high-efficiency air conditioning system and Active ECO System, which modifies engine and transmission controls to smooth throttle response.
Class-leading fuel efficiency; responsive powertrains; rear passenger space; smooth ride; generous standard features; safety features
The Tucson has a lot going for it when matched up against the competition. With either available engine, the Tucson has some of the highest combined and highway fuel economy ratings in its class. The Tucson has a longer wheelbase than its rivals yet has one of the shortest turning diameters, which makes it settled and stable on the open road yet also maneuverable in tight spaces. Hyundai also says there is more interior space than in some vehicles a size larger, and rear-seat legroom is class-leading.
