Used Car: 2013 Hyundai Tucson Review
Test drivers remarked that the 2013 Hyundai Tucson has a handsome cabin and nimble handling, but disliked its cramped rear seats and sluggish base engine.
The base engine in the 2013 Hyundai Tucson is a four-cylinder engine. A larger four-cylinder engine is available. A manual transmission is standard and an automatic is available. Reviewers said that the Tucson feels sluggish with the base engine but has ample power with the larger engine. The 2013 Tucson’s fuel economy is an EPA-estimated 22/29 mpg city/highway with the base engine, automatic transmission and front-wheel drive (all-wheel drive is available), which is decent for the class. With the larger engine, the Tucson returns a similar 21/30 mpg. Though reviewers appreciated the Tucson’s nimble handling, they noted that the ride is firm for a compact SUV.
Most reviewers said that the 2013 Hyundai Tucson’s interior is handsome and built with nice materials. Many test drivers complained that the back seat lacks sufficient space, and a few mentioned that the design of the roof compromises rearward visibility. The Tucson’s overall cargo capacity is low for the class. Standard features in the 2013 Hyundai Tucson include satellite radio and a USB port. Available features include Bluetooth, navigation, leather seats and a rearview camera.
Other SUVs to Consider
The 2013 Mazda CX-5 is one of the sportiest compact SUVs available, according to critics. The CX-5 also gets better fuel economy than the Tucson.
While some reviewers complained about the limited space in the Tucson, the 2013 GMC Terrain earned praise for its roomy interior. The GMC Terrain also has a standard rearview camera and more cargo space than the Tucson.
