The compact Tucson SUV was introduced in 2006 as a smaller-scale alternative to the Santa Fe. For 2007, this five-passenger crossover gets two new trim levels, GLS and SE, with an updated audio system  featuring a new digital tuner and improved display, MP3 capability and revised CD changer and controls for SE and Limited models, dual-mode trip computers for SE and Limited models and a new color, Platinum Silver (replacing Sahara Silver). A 140-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant is standard in the GLS and can drive either the front or all four wheels via a five-speed manual or optional four-speed automatic transmission with manual-shift capability. The SE and Limited models levels include a 173-horsepower 2.7-liter V-6 that's available only with the automatic gearbox. The optional all-wheel-drive system normally routes up to 99 percent of the power to the front wheels. As road conditions or torque demand (acceleration) changes, the system automatically diverts up to 50 percent of the power to the rear wheels. Like the larger Santa Fe's system, it can be "locked" into a 50-50 power split between the front and rear wheels for maximum traction. Base GS models come standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, seat-mounted side-impact airbags, side-curtain airbags, power windows, door locks and exterior mirrors and an 80-watt AM/FM/CD audio system. Tucson SE models add the 2.7-liter V-6 engine, four-speed automatic transmission, unique 16-inch double-spoke alloy wheels with 235/60R16 tires, bodyside cladding, fog lights and body colored door handles and mirror, leather-covered steering wheel and deluxe cloth seating surfaces. The top-of-the-line Limited adds leather seating surfaces and heated front seats, monochromatic exterior appearance package, fully automatic temperature control with outside temperature display, auto-dimming inside rearview mirror with compass and rear cargo mat. The only options are all-wheel drive, a power tilt-and-slide sunroof and a 200-watt CD changer with subwoofer.
