Tucson Performance

The Tucson is equipped with a 161-horsepower 2.0L four-cylinder that mates to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. The uprated engine is a 181-horsepower 2.4L four-cylinder that also has a six-speed transmission and front-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is available for both. When properly equipped, the Tucson can tow up to 2,000 pounds with the 2.4L engine, while the 2.0L engine can tow up to 1,500 pounds.

Both engines offer zippy acceleration for driving around town and confident passing and merging on the highway. The transmission makes great use of the engine's power with smooth, sharp shifts and well-timed gear changes. This performance is backed by strong brakes and light, direct steering that makes it easy to maneuver comfortably.

Tucson Interior Comfort and Space

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson can accommodate five people in two rows of seats. All the seating positions have supportive, cushiony seats with comfortable cloth upholstery and ample head and legroom. Outward visibility is excellent, giving the cabin an airy feel. Additional comfort upgrades include:

  • Leather upholstery
  • Heated rear seats
  • Heated and ventilated front seats
  • Heated steering wheel

With the seats upright, the Tucson has 31 cubic feet of cargo space. With the rear seats folded down, the space expands to 61.9 cubic feet, which accommodates larger cargo like luggage, shopping bags, and sports or camping equipment.

Tucson Technology and Safety Features

All Tucson trim levels come with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system mounted on the dash, complete with touchscreen inputs and multiple buttons and knobs for ease of use. Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ smartphone integration are included on all trims, giving you access to the media on your phone for on-the-go entertainment. You can upgrade the convenience and entertainment technology with features like:

  • Navigation
  • HD Radio™
  • SiriusXM® Satellite Radio
  • Wireless device charging

Several safety features are included for all models, such as a rearview camera and lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist. This feature monitors your position in your driving lane and alerts you if you start to drift, gently guiding you back into place. You can also add a surround-view parking camera system for easier parking and maneuvering, automatic high-beam headlights for low-light situations, and rear cross-traffic alert, a feature that alerts you to vehicles, obstacles, or pedestrians behind your vehicle when reversing.
