USB connection 'a nice inclusion'
navigation screen just 1.5 inches larger than 'modern smartphones'
Options make a 'downright rich-feeling crossover'
As shoppers can expect from any Hyundai product, the Tucson comes with all the essentials, as well as some extras, even on the base model. All versions have standard power windows, locks, and mirrors; cloth seats; remote keyless entry; air conditioning; and an AM/FM/XM/CD player with USB port.
The options list has as many upscale features as some entry-luxury sedans. There's Bluetooth; telescoping steering; leather seating; heated front seats; steering wheel audio controls; a power driver seat; 17-inch wheels; automatic headlights; and dual-zone automatic climate control.
More expensive options on the 2012 Tucson include a panoramic sunroof; premium audio; and a touchscreen navigation system fitted in tandem with Bluetooth streaming stereo audio and a rearview camera. Go whole-hog on the options, and the Tucson can reach $30,000.Warranty coverage is also great--including five-year/60,000-mile, bumper-to-bumper coverage plus 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain coverage.
From its feature set, or its interior, the 2012 Hyundai Tucson doesn't feel like the tight-budget offering it is.
