One of my friends recently started shopping for a car for his wife. As far as he could tell her only requirement was All Wheel Drive. He had added a few more, such as economy and value. I think the new Tucson might be the solution to both their needs. Handsome body lines, high build quality, plenty of tech toys and safety enhancements and that all important AWD.
Power comes from a direct injected 1.6 liter turbocharged 4 cylinder offering an impressive 195 lbs/ft of torque. Other refinements reserved for vehicles much more expensive include: 7 speed dual clutch transmission and hydraulic suspension bushings.
I don’t typically like CUVs, they’re not really my style. However can safely recommend this vehicle to my friend and his wife. And praise doesn’t get much higher than that… If this sort of thing interests you.
