USB connection "a nice inclusion
navigation screen just 1.5 inches larger than "modern smartphones
Options make a "downright rich-feeling crossover
Hyundai is sparing few features from the 2010 Tucson's standard-equipment list. It's extremely well-fitted, particularly for its price class. That class includes "fine choices" like the Nissan Rogue, the Honda CR-V, the Mitsubishi Outlander, and the Toyota RAV4, Car and Driver explains.
"With GLS and Limited levels, two transmissions and few options, ordering a new Tucson will be a simple process," Edmunds promises. Each 2010 Hyundai Tucson comes with power windows, locks, and mirrors; remote keyless entry; cloth seats; air conditioning; and an AM/FM/XM/CD player with USB connectivity-"a nice inclusion" at this price, Cars.com says.
Options include Bluetooth; steering wheel audio controls; heated front seats; leather seating; a power driver's seat; automatic headlights; 17-inch wheels; and dual-zone automatic climate control. The leather trim "feels rich enough for a pricier car," Cars.com says.
The Tucson can be ordered with Hyundai's first panoramic sunroof; telescoping steering, an engine cover, and premium audio are available, along with a touchscreen navigation system fitted in tandem with a rearview camera and Bluetooth stereo audio. That navigation system suffers with a smaller screen: "At 6.5-inches big, the nav screen is only one and half inches larger than modern smartphones," Autoblog reports, though they add the screen works exceptionally well. Cars.com feels it's "fairly easy to use, with plenty of street labels and excellent graphics."
Hyundai also continues to offer a 5-year/60,000-mile bumper-to-bumper warranty, which extends to 10 years/100,000 miles for some powertrain parts.
Fully optioned, the 2010 Hyundai Tucson checks in at a believe-it-or-not $29,490, so take care with the order sheet. "Load it up with navigation, the panoramic moonroof and all-wheel drive, and you'll have a downright rich-feeling crossover," Cars.com warns, "but it will set you back more than $28,000."
The 2010 Hyundai Tucson amps its upscale intentions with smart audio, power, and luxury features.
