2014 Hyundai Tucson: The New Compact Crossover SUV

NY Hyundai Tucson | Valley Stream New Cars

 

The 2014 Tucson seems to be creating a class all its own. Officially known as a crossover SUV, the smaller size of Tucson is actually handles a bit more like a compact, and has a distinctly European feel to its conduct on the road. Tucson's handling and maneuverability are made possible by its smaller dimensions, and allow it to navigate narrow lanes, tight spaces and crowded Nassau County highways with agile ease. Its road hugging nature makes it feel a bit sportier than you would expect - and although its shorter length does leave less room for cargo, it still provides 25.7 cubic feet of cargo room behind the rear seats; 55.8 cubic feet if you fold the seatbacks down. What the Tucson lacks in voluminous cargo space, it more than makes up for with fun loving performance - not to mention, it's a breeze to park! Driving in NY just got fun again.

The 2014 NY Hyundai Tucson is a five-passenger compact crossover SUV that's offered in three trim levels: GLS, SE and Limited.

The EPA-estimated fuel economy is 23 mpg city/29 mpg highway on the front-wheel drive vehicle; and 21 city/25 highway equipped with all-wheel drive. Because the GLS trim used to be the midgrade model, it is equipped with an admirable lineup of included options. The 2014 Tucson exterior boasts 17-inch alloy wheels, LED running lights, a rear spoiler and privacy glass.
