2014 Hyundai Tucson

New For 2014

The Tucson is updated for 2014. More power for engines, new suspension dampers, a larger navigation screen, LED taillamps, and two-stage reclining 60/40-split rear seats are some of the improvements.

Vehicle Summary

Hyundai's smallest sport-ute has often been overshadowed in the marketplace, but its maker is hoping to turn it into a segment player. The Tucson has been refreshed for 2014 and gets a slew of new and improved features, including more torque for both four-cylinder engines, new suspension dampers, a larger navigation screen, LED taillights, projector headlights, and reclining 60/40-split rear seats.

The V-6 engine option was dropped when the Tucson was redesigned for 2010, but the 2.0-liter and 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines are still around, and Hyundai has upped the output from both of them this year. They're pretty frugal, too -- the 2.0-liter, front-wheel-drive model earns a 23/29 mpg city/highway EPA rating, and the 2.4-liter, front-wheel-drive model earns a 21/28 mpg city/highway rating.

Although Hyundai has added more features to the Tucson for 2014, this little crossover is still reaching for its competitors.


Did you forget that the Hyundai Tucson existed? Yeah, we almost did, too. Hyundai has been making such a fuss about its new Santa Fe lineup that the Tucson disappeared from the spotlight. Not to say it was really in the spotlight to begin with. When it was redesigned for 2010, the Tucson became slightly larger and a bit lighter. With a reasonable starting price, it was an OK choice for a small crossover. Then a wave of thoroughly redesigned and all-new competitors came, and the Tucson couldn't keep up. Hyundai hopes to change that with the 2014 Tucson.

The crossover is mildly updated and gets features that should help make it more competitive. Hyundai hopes that all-new suspension dampers will smooth out the Tucson's slightly jarring ride. The automaker also hopes that more powerful engines will lure in buyers. The 2.0-liter gets 5 more hp, and the 2.4-liter gets 6 more hp and 9 more lb-ft of torque. While front-wheel-drive Tucsons with the 2.0-liter get better city fuel economy than last year, front-wheel-drive Tucsons with the 2.4-liter get worse highway fuel economy.

The exterior benefits from projector headlights and LED taillights. The designs for both the standard seventeen-inch aluminum wheels and the optional eighteen-inch wheels are new. Inside, there's a standard tilting-and-telescoping steering column and a larger navigation screen for well-equipped vehicles, but the best new interior feature is the reclining second row.

Unfortunately, none of these alterations change the fact that this segment's pool of competitors is very strong, so the Tucson will continue to struggle.

2015 Hyundai Tucson Right Front Driving
It may not rack up the colossal sales of the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape or Toyota RAV4, but the Hyundai Tucson compact crossover is nonetheless an important model for the brand to fill out its model lineup. The Tucson is coming up on its 10th anniversary in the U.S. The second-generation model debuted for the 2010 model year, and the third-generation model looks like it's right around the corner, based on these spyshots.
