2021 Hyundai Tucson for Sale in Hyannis, MA
The Hyundai Tucson is a crossover that would make Goldilocks very happy: it’s not too big, and it’s not too small: It’s just right. This popular midsized vehicle is back for 2021 to wrap up its third generation. As is expected just before a redesign, there aren’t huge changes: a few new paint colors and other minor tweaks. But Hyundai continues its generous inclusion of three years of complimentary scheduled maintenance and the industry’s best warranty, highlighted by 10 years/100,000 miles of powertrain coverage.
Fuel Economy and Powertrain
Hyundai has a pair of naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engines for the 2021 Tucson: the base 2.0-liter, which makes 161 horsepower and comes standard on the SE and Value trims, and the available 2.4-liter making 181 hp, which is the standard upgrade on the other four trims: the SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate. They all get a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is offered on all trims.
The Tucson is nicely fuel-efficient for a midsized crossover, getting 23 mpg city/28 mpg highway with the base engine and FWD; with AWD, this engine achieves 22 city/25 highway. The larger engine with FWD gets 22 city/28 highway, and with AWD it gets 21 city/26 highway.
Trims and Standard Features
The base trim, the SE, comes with cloth seats, a tilt steering wheel, automatic on/off headlights, 17-inch wheels, and a dual-level cargo floor. It also gets a good base package of active safety technologies (more details follow in the Technology for Connectivity and Safety section). The Value trim earns its name with heated front seats, a power driver’s seat, heated side mirrors, and roof rails, while the SEL adds automatic dual-zone climate control with rear-seat vents and upgrades the wheels to 18-inchers. The Sport rim jumps up to 19-inch wheels (it’s the only trim to get those), plus a hands-free liftgate, a wireless phone charger, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The Limited ramps up the luxury with a heated (leather-wrapped) steering wheel, leather seating, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, and a 360-degree surround-view camera. The most loaded trim, the Ultimate, gets those amenities as well as heated rear outboard seats, ventilated front seats, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.
Technology and Safety
Hyundai is known for including an above-average amount of today’s most sought-after technology features for information, communication, and safety. The base infotainment system has a larger standard screen – 7 inches – than many of its rivals, and it also comes with six speakers, Bluetooth functionality, and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The trims above the base SE receive SiriusXM satellite radio and HD radio, and the Sport trim and above get a premium Infinity audio system with eight speakers. Navigation and an 8-inch touchscreen are standard fare on the Ultimate.
The driver-assist package on the base trim contains forward collision warning, lane keep assist, and a driver attention warning system. The higher trims also get a blind spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, and the top trim receives adaptive cruise control.
