2013 Hyundai Tucson Overview

For 2013, Hyundai adds a few standard features to the top two trims of its Tucson compact crossover. Heated seats, automatic headlights and fog lights are added to the mid-level GLS, and proximity-sensing keyless entry with push-button start now come on the top-of-the-range Limited. With seating for five and available all-wheel drive, the Tucson competes against the Nissan Rogue, Honda CR-V, and Mazda CX-5.

Outside, the Tucson features the curvaceous fenders and hexagonal grille found on the previous generation Santa Fe. A deeply sloped windshield, rising beltline, and a roofline that drops off at the back give the crossover a sleek profile. A rear spoiler and 17-inch wheels are standard, while panoramic moonroof and chrome accents are available on the top model.

A 165-horsepower, 2.0-liter, four-cylinder engine producing 146 pounds feet of torque mates with a five-speed manual gearbox sending power to the front wheels of the base GL model. While the six-speed automatic transmission is available on the GL, all-wheel drive isn’t. For GLS and Limited trims, a 176-horsepower, 2.4-liter inline-four producing 168 pounds feet of torque pairs with the six-speed automatic and either front- or all-wheel-drive.

In base form, the Tucson’s 2.0-liter engine and five-speed manual return EPA-estimated fuel economy of 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Switching to the six-speed with the smaller engine brings ratings of 23/31 mpg city/highway. With the 2.4-liter powerplant and six-speed automatic the Tucson achieves 22/32 mpg city/highway. With all-wheel drive mileage slips to 21/28 mpg city/highway. Generally, the Tucson’s fuel economy matches or exceeds that of competing compact crossovers.  

The 2013 Tucson’s interior features standard cloth upholstery, 60/40 split rear seat, satellite radio, USB port, auxiliary input, iPod cable, power windows, locks and mirrors, and air conditioning. Options include leather upholstery, navigation system, rearview camera and panoramic moonroof. Hyundai’s model scheme adds features based on trim levels rather than offering a longer list of options to lower trim levels.

Standard safety equipment includes electronic stability and traction control, four-wheel antilock disc brakes with emergency braking assist and electronic brake-force distribution. Six standard airbags include front, front side-impact and side-curtains with rollover sensors. The body structure is designed to manage crash energy in a way that directs away from the passenger compartment. The IIHS named the Tucson a Top Safety Pick.
