2018 Hyundai Tucson review: Our expert's take

What it is: The Tucson is Hyundai’s compact SUV with seating for five and a choice of front- or all-wheel drive. Competitors include the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4.

Last year’s base SE with the Popular Equipment Package is now the SEL trim, and the SE Plus is now the SEL Plus. The SEL gets a standard 7-inch touchscreen audio system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.

Engine failed

This car doesn't have alot of take off power. Not very comfortable as the driver. Now I have to be without a vehicle for two months & a week because the engine failed. There was issues with the engine's in these vehicle's. Very inconvenient when this is your only vehicle. The only up part about the situation is that it is being replaced at no cost to me. Will be trading or selling as soon as possible.


My baby Blue Bayou

Absolutely reliable. Haven’t had any issues & I wish I went a little bigger maybe the Hyundai Sante Fe sport model but I still like it ! I got the caribbean blue color so it makes me smile when I get in it


Been fine, haven't had it very long

I am a taller person but has adequate room for me to enter and exit ok. I am happy with the fuel mileage. it is comfortable to drive.
