The Hyundai Tucson is a sporty SUV that offers a smooth, comfortable ride and lots of features. So, how capable is it when it comes to towing? Maguire Hyundai finds out. To show drivers in Ithaca, Vestal, and Sayre what it can do for you, we looked at the Hyundai Tucson towing capacity.

Hyundai Tucson Towing Capabilities

The Hyundai Tucson can tow up to 2,000 pounds. That gives it the ability to help you bring some extra cargo or a couple recreational vehicles like ATVs or jet skis on your next vacation. To give you that kind of capability, it offers two exciting engines.

The base powertrain is a 2.0L 4-cylinder engine that can get up to 161 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque. On higher trim levels, you'll be driving on a 2.4L 4-cylinder engine that's able to produce up to 181 horsepower and 175 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines have a Drive Mode Select feature and work with a 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC®. This give you the freedom to take control of the gears without a manual clutch.

Hyundai Tucson Towing Features

You can also count on the Hyundai Tucson to make towing safer and easier with lots of available features. To line up with your trailer, there's a standard Rear-View Monitor. It lets you see both what's directly behind your SUV and your projected path right on your dashboard monitor.

For even more awareness, you can use the available Surround View Monitor to see all around your vehicle. It creates a bird's-eye view that's great when you're loading, unloading, or driving in tight spaces. Your infotainment system can even give you a split-screen view of both features at the same time.

Once you're on the road, you'll know when the coast is clear to change lanes safely thanks to the available Blind Spot Collision feature.

While front-wheel drive is standard, all-wheel drive is available with a Downhill Brake Control. This will help you travel down steep roads and trails at a safe, constant speed, even when you've got your trailer hooked up.

Hyundai Tucson Cargo Capacity

While the Hyundai Tucson can pull a utility trailer, it can also fit lots of cargo inside, too. Its spacious interior features 31 cubic feet of cargo room in the trunk. To nearly double your cargo room, just use the 60/40 split second-row fold-flat seats. With the back row down, you'll have up to 61.9 cubic feet of cargo room.

If you're carrying something you'd rather not store inside, like a kayak or your Christmas tree, a set of available roof rails can help. When you aren't tying something to the roof and just have your hands full, hold your foot out and the hands-free smart liftgate will open up automatically for you.
