2014 Hyundai Tucson Overview
- Significant updates for 2014
- Adds standard features, including Bluetooth connectivity
- Both four-cylinder engine options add direct-injection technology which improves performance
The 2014 Hyundai Tucson gets a slew of updates for the new model year, adding standard features, mechanical improvements, and some new styling elements as well.
On the outside, the Tucson adds newly standard LED accents to the headlights and new wheel designs as well. The compact crossover, which competes with segment mainstays like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4, has front styling similar to what is found with on the smaller Accent. A pinched grille fronts a sculpted hood, and both front and rear fenders have prominent arches that are flat rather than round. 17-inch alloy wheels come standard, as does a rear spoiler. A panoramic moonroof is also available.
Under the hood, both of the Tucson’s available four-cylinder engines add direct-injection technology, which improves performance. The base engine is a 164-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder, with a more powerful 182-hp, 2.4-liter four-cylinder optional. Both are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and standard front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available. Fuel economy tops out at 23/29 mpg city/highway with the base engine and front-wheel drive.
Inside, the 2014 Tucson adds more features which give the five-seat crossover even better value. Bluetooth connectivity, a reclining rear seat, and a tilt/telescoping steering wheel with audio controls joins air conditioning, a USB port, and cruise control on the standard features list. Dual-zone automatic climate control and leather upholstery are available which enhance rider comfort. There is also plenty of optional technology, including push-button start, a navigation system with a 7-inch touch-screen, Blue Link telematics, and HD Radio.
The Tucson is an IIHS Top Safety Pick award recipient. Standard safety features include all-disc antilock brakes, electronic stability system, active front head restraints, and six airbags. A rearview camera is optional.
