Year / Model Reviewed:
2010 Tucson GLS AWD
Great body style, fit and finish are very good. Interior ergonomics are almost perfect, front leather seats are very comfortable. Interior noise is good...better than RAV4 (I owned a 08 before). Transmission is very smooth, gearing ratio and shifts are spot on....plus six-speed! Engine has plenty of power....thanks to transmission. Fuel Economy is excellent (even for my AWD - I often hit 29.5 mpg between fill-ups! Very easy to maneuver, very tight turning radius....great for parking lots. Really love the color of my Tucson....Graphite Grey Metallic. Heater really puts out heat....have not tried A/C yet. I am really liking XM/Sirius Sat radio!
Daytime driving lights should be standard for safety or at least on Popular Equip package upgrade. Suspension on AWD model is stiffer compared to non-AWD model... why make is stiffer? Gas tank size is small (14.5 gal), should be at least in the 16-18gal size. Auto-lights should be available on all models . Full size spare would have been nice. No power seats available on the GLS....guess I should have bought the Limited.
Overall I really enjoy driving my new Tucson. I would almost say that I actually have fun driving it. They are a few minor things, but overall they will be selling a lot of these Tucsons. No other small SUV comes close to the value this vehicle brings to the market. Like I stated before, I have owned 08 RAV4 and my new Tucson definately beats it most areas. My wife, who has always been against Hyundai, was really impressed by the Tucson and now really likes the new 2011 Sonata and the Genesis.....new car in the future? ? ? We will see. Overall you will not be disappointed by the new Tucson.
