Changes for the 2014 Hyundai Tucson:
All 2014 Tucson models come standard with direct-injected engines, amplitude selective dampers, and Bluetooth connectivity. Additionally, the new Tucson is equipped with a standard tilt/telescopic steering wheel with audio and cruise controls, rear air vents, a reclining 60/40-split rear seat, illuminated cupholders, upgraded headlights with LED running lights, and aluminum wheels. A new 18-inch wheel design is optional, along with LED taillights, Blue Link technology and Hyundai Assurance Connected Care, and a next-generation infotainment and navigation system with a 7-inch touchscreen and HD Radio.
For 2014, the Hyundai Tucson is offered in GLS, SE, and Limited trim levels. Choose the Tucson SE for a more powerful engine, leatherette seat bolsters with cloth seat inserts, an 8-way power driver’s seat, heated front seats, heated side mirrors, rear air vents, a color touchscreen audio system, and a reversing camera. On the outside, the SE model is equipped with fog lights, automatic headlights, roof rails, and additional body cladding.
The Tucson Limited is the luxury-oriented model, equipped with leather seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, dual-zone automatic climate control, Proximity Key passive entry with push-button ignition, a universal garage door opener, and Hyundai’s Blue Link connectivity system. The Limited model also adds additional chrome exterior trim, outside mirrors with turn signal indicators, a new “shark-fin” antenna, a windshield wiper de-icer system, and 18-inch aluminum wheels.
Engines and Transmissions:
A 164-horsepower, 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine is standard for the Tucson GLS, while the Tucson SE and Limited models have a more powerful 182-horsepower, 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine. Each is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. An all-wheel-drive system is optional.
Fuel Economy Ratings:
In combined driving, the 2014 Hyundai Tucson GLS is rated to return 25 mpg with front-wheel drive and 23 mpg with AWD. Choose the Tucson SE or Limited, and those figures drop to 24 mpg and 22 mpg, respectively.
In crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the Tucson receives a 4-star overall rating. Note that the SUV doesn’t receive any rating lower than 4 stars in any individual assessment.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Tucson a “Poor” rating for its performance in the tough new small overlap frontal-impact test in 2013. In all other aspects, the SUV rated “Good.” Hyundai has not announced structural changes to address the “Poor” rating for 2014, and official IIHS ratings are not available as this summary is written.
Bluetooth connectivity is standard for all 2014 Tucson models, and the SE trim level includes a reversing camera. Select the Tucson Limited, and this crossover SUV is equipped with Blue Link telematics, Proximity Key passive entry with push-button starting, and a dual-zone automatic climate control system with a clean-air ionizer.
