Some of you have noticed the theme in my recent car reviews. Most of them have been from Hyundai. As I work at a Cadillac / Hyundai dealership, cars from these two marques are most readily available to me. And this week is no different.
|The New face in the tucson is alot nicer to look at than the previous model. The Projector headlights and LED driving lights give the exterior a premium feel to it.|
|For the first month after we got the new Tucsons, this one stood out to me. Partially from the color, partially due to the Turbo and AWD combination..Either way, I like the car.|
|The 1.6T badge might throw you, though. With 175hp (2 more than my 2006 Subaru Forester 2.5X has from a 2.5L H-4), one would expect a slow eco car...This car, however, isn't.|
|The Buzzy little 1.6 Liter Gasoline Direct-Injected Turbo engine actually feels as good as the 2.0L in the Elantra I drove last week, if not stronger.|
|The Tan and black interior felt well built. The lack of rattles points to excellent build quality. The driving position is a little too upright for my taste.|
|Overall, I'd have a difficult time finding a reason, other than financial, to choose any other car in this segment over the Tucson. As I mentioned earlier, I have a 2006 Subaru Forester, which is very close in size and power output to the Tucson, though with a larger engine and less weight.|
