Buyers looking for a new 2017 Hyundai Tucson will see prices remain relatively the same for the base trim levels or slightly less for the higher-end trim levels.
The 2017 Tucson, Hyundai’s compact crossover, is arriving at dealerships now. The South Korean car company not only is keeping prices relatively the same but is also including some upgrades to the infotainment system on its Limited trim levels, new console-mounted rear air conditioning vents on its Eco and Sports trim levels and upgraded door panel materials to its Sport trim level.
The Tucson competes with vehicles like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 in the compact crossover market. The base-level Tucson SE trim level that comes with front-wheel drive, six-speed automatic and a 2.0-liter engine will cost $22,700. The front-wheel drive version is rated at 23 mpg in the city, 30 on the highway and 26 combined.
The all-wheel drive version of the SE is about $2,000 more and will cost $24,100. Both come with an estimated 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque.
The Eco trim levels come with a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. Prices range from $24,150 for the front-wheel drive version to $25,550 for the all-wheel drive version.
For those who want the Sport trim level, that will cost $25,900 for the front-wheel drive version and $27,300 for the all-wheel drive version. Both come equipped with the same 1.6-liter turbo engine and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. For the front-wheel drive version, fuel economy ratings are 26 mpg city, 32 highway and 28 combined.
For the Limited, which is the highest trim level for the Tucson, the price ranges from $29,775 for front-wheel drive and $31,175 for all-wheel drive. Both come equipped with the 1.6-liter turbo engine and seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The Sport and Limited will see fuel economy of 25 city, 30 highway and 27 combined.
For the Eco, Sport and Limited trim levels, the 1.6-liter engine makes 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque.
Although the Eco, Sport and Limited have the same engine and transmission, the price difference is based on the different amounts and types of options available.
