2015 Hyundai Tucson

New for 2015

The Hyundai Tucson remains largely unchanged for the 2015 model year, following a number of changes for 2014. A Popular Equipment package for the GLS model bundles a rearview camera, 4.3-inch color touchscreen, 8-way power driver seat, some premium trim details, and standard LED taillights.

Vehicle Overview

The Hyundai Tucson is a compact crossover that seats five and fits below the Santa Fe Sport and Santa Fe in the automaker’s crossover lineup. The Tucson is also available as a fuel-cell powered vehicle in Southern California.

Summary

The 2015 Hyundai Tucson is available with two gasoline engines, in front- or all-wheel drive, and comes with a six-speed automatic transmission. The base engine is a 2.0-liter I-4 that makes 164 hp and 151 lb-ft of torque, and gets an EPA-estimated 23/29 mpg city/highway in FWD form, and 21/25 mpg in AWD. The available engine is a 182-hp 2.4-liter I-4 that makes 177 lb-ft of torque, and gets an EPA-estimated 21/28 mpg with FWD, or 20/25 mpg with AWD. Noteworthy options include a 7-inch infotainment screen and a panoramic sunroof.
The 2015 Hyundai Tucson received a four-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), and in IIHS testing received four ratings of good and one of poor in the new – and more difficult – small front overlap test; the highest possible rating is good.

Tucson Fuel Cell

A low-volume hydrogen fuel-cell powered version of the Tucson combines a fuel cell stack/electric motor that produces 134 hp and 221 lb-ft of torque, which can travel between 250 and 300 miles, while eliminating the long charge times of traditional “clean” electric only vehicles. Hyundai is currently only expecting to lease 1,000 examples of the Tucson Fuel Cell, and only in Southern California, citing the limited availability of public filling stations. Leases will be for 36 months, and will not offer an option to purchase at the end.

What We Think

The Hyundai Tucson handles fairly well, and the capable 2.4-liter I-4 propels it along with reasonable manners. Under hard acceleration the engine is noisy, but surprisingly quiet when cruising. In a Driven review of a 2010 Hyundai Tucson we said, “Runs up and down Malibu's canyon roads revealed a pleasantly firm suspension that provides nearly flat cornering attitudes and also resists dive and squat. Electric power steering is tuned better than most, if still a bit overboosted at parking-lot speeds.”
The Tucson was a crossover that we largely enjoyed when it launched, but four years later, the Hyundai has aged and some competitors have been redesigned. The Tucson is still a capable people-mover, and provides good value, but it’s getting long in the tooth.

2015 Hyundai Tucson Front Three Quarter Static
The 2015 Hyundai Tucson is slightly more expensive than last year's version, with the GLS model now priced from $22,375 with front-wheel drive and $23,875 with all-wheel drive. Those represent modest increases of just $50 versus 2014 base prices. Overall, there are few changes to the Tucson this year, as the 2014 Hyundai Tucson received new engines and a visual face-lift. For 2015, LED taillights become standard on the Tucson.
