The Hyundai Tucson, launched in the year 2004, is one of the best selling compact SUVs from Hyundai. It is also among the best-preferred family car here in the US. The 2023 model year is part of the fourth generation of the Hyundai Tucson introduced in 2022 and is expected to be a carryover model. As a carryover model, it features the same jewel-like grille paired with geometric daytime running lights integrated into its design. It has bulging fenders, angled wheel wells, a level roofline, and short overhangs that give it a distinctive appearance compared to the competition.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The Hyundai Tucson Base MSRP starts from $25,800 and goes all the way up to $35,300 for the limited trim which is the top trim available. It is currently offered in 5 trims. All trim comes equipped with a standard 2.5 liter 4 cylinder engine and front-wheel drive as standard and there is an option to upgrade to AWD for an additional $1,500. The transmission on the Tucson is an 8-speed automatic with Shiftronic which allows the drivers to shift gears like in manual transmissions. The Hyundai Tucson faces competition against the likes of the Honda CRV, the Mazda CX 5, and the Toyota RAV4. Let us find in our detailed comparison how the Tucson stacks up against the competition.


Features

The Hyundai Tucson will be offered in 5 trims namely the SE, the SEL, the N line, the XRT, and the limited. The base MSRP starts at $ 25,800 for the base SE trim and goes up to $35,300 for the top Limited trim. All trims come equipped with a 2.5 liter inline 4 engine equipped with an FWD drivetrain as standard. The drivetrain can be upgraded to an AWD system at an additional cost of $1,500. The base trim also is well equipped with most features as standard but higher trims could be much more appealing, especially the N line and XRT which have added styling.

The SE and SEL trims get 17inch alloys as standard whereas the rest of all the trims get 19inch alloy as standard. Another thing to note is that only on the SEL trim do we have the option of adding packages, the rest all the trims don’t have the option of adding packages making it one of the desirable options. The following packages are exclusively available for the SEL trim.

Convenience Package $2,600

  • Hands-Free power liftgate with auto open
  • 19-inch alloy wheels
  • 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster
  • Wireless device charging

Premium Package $1,700

  • Dark chrome grille with blacked out Hyundai Logo

We Recommend

We would recommend the XRT trim which gets most of the convenience and safety features. It also looks sportier than other trims with its rear spoilers, roof cross rails, and 19-inch alloy wheels. SEL trim is a better option for budget-conscious buyers.

Release Date

We expect the 2023 model year to be available for booking in dealerships towards the end of this year.

Engine and Performance

The Hyundai Tucson is equipped with a 2.5 liter inline 4 engine which produces a power of 187 hp @ 6,100 RPM and a torque of 178 lb-ft. @ 4,000 RPM. The engine is matted to an 8-speed automatic transmission and the FWD drivetrain comes as a standard option across all trims. The optional AWD uses HTRAC technology to ensure optimal traction in difficult driving conditions.

The Hyundai Tucson's performance is not the greatest in the segment but it offers decent performance and puts up well with the competition. Except for the Honda CRV, all SUVs come equipped with a 2.5 liter inline 4 engine with an FWD drivetrain as standard. In terms of power output, the RAV4 leads the club with an output of 203 hp @ 6,600 RPM. The Tucson has the least power output in the segment. In terms of torque, all cars have a somewhat similar figure with a slight edge for the Mazda CX5 and Honda CRV. The 0-60 and quarter mile times are quickest on the Honda CRV with 7.7 and 16.1 seconds respectively. The Tucson comes in at the last spot. All SUVs have a recorded top speed of 120 MPH.

2023 Hyundai Tucson Ride and Handling

The ride quality like most Hyundai cars is comfortable and smooth. The suspensions are tuned well enough to ensure a good ride in bad road conditions as well. The cornering ability is not so agile as the other competitors but on the highway, the ride quality seems to be pretty grounded and stable. The eight-speed automatic shifts eagerly and leaves you wanting more power during low-speed acceleration. The seating also on offer gives apple cushioning and support to the drivers and passengers alike. The cabin noise insulation is also highly appreciable. It also offers driver assistance tech which also improves the overall ride quality of the Tucson.

2023 Hyundai Tucson Braking Performance

The Tucson comes with four-wheel disc brakes with ABS as standard and offers ample stopping power. It also comes with other safety braking features like brake assist, electronic stability management, and traction controls which ensures that the vehicle stays stable during emergency braking situations. It gets 12.8-inch rotors at the front and a 12-inch rotor at the rear. Overall the braking performance is quite commendable on the Tucson.

On paper compared to the competition we feel the braking performance is best on the Tucson due to its lower curb weight and bigger rotors. The Mazda CX 5 stands at the second spot in our comparison followed by the CRV and the Toyota RAV4. In terms of curb weight, the Tucson is lightest followed by CRV, the Mazda, and the RAV4. The 60-0 ft braking distance is not known for the comparison as it may vary based on the drive, driving conditions, etc.

Fuel Economy

The Tucson returns a decent fuel economy of 26 miles per gallon in the city, 33 miles on the highway and a combined figure of 29 miles. The fuel tank capacity is 14.3 gallons which gives it a range of 372 miles in the city, 472 miles on the highway, and a combined range of 414 miles. On the AWD the MPG reduces to 24 in the city, 29 on the highway, and a combined fuel economy of 26 MPG. This reduces its maximum range to approximately 415 miles.

The 2023 Tucson is not as fuel efficient as the competitor. The Honda CRV tops the list followed by the RAV4 both offer the best fuel efficiency in the segment but due to the smaller tank on the Honda CRV, the range is almost similar to the Tucson. The Mazda CX 5 turned out to be the least fuel-efficient SUV in our comparison. 

Interior

As a carryover model, the 2023 shares most of the interior aspects with the ongoing model. The interior theme comes in black and gray color. Both use soft-touch materials on the doors and dashboard to give them a luxurious feel. The seats are offered in cloth on the base trim and get leather finishes on the higher trim. The higher trim also offers ventilated and heated seats. On the base trim, 6-way power-adjusted driver seats are available as standard. The steering is equipped with most of the standard steering controls. The 8- inch touch screen infotainment system comes as standard and an option for opting for the premium Bose audio system is available on the SEL trim and upwards.

The Tucson offers good interior space compared to the competition. All models in the segment get similar front row space, the Honda CRV and Tucson provide slightly better. Regarding the second row, the Tucson is spacious, followed by the Honda CRV. The CRV has the most cargo space at 39.3 cubic feet, followed by the Tucson.

Some of the key interior features available with the 2023 Hyundai Tucson are:

  • 60/40-split fold-down & reclining rear seatback with adjustable head restraint
  • Dual-level cargo floor
  • Remote release folding rear seats (from cargo)
  • 8-inch color touchscreen
  • Rear View Monitor with dynamic parking guidelines
  • Rear window defroster with timer
  • Tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel
  • Remote keyless entry system with alarm and panic
  • Rear center armrest with cupholders

How intuitive is the 2023 Hyundai Tucson’s infotainment system?

Compared to models prior to the 2022 model year, a lot has improved in the infotainment front of the Tucson. The Tucson now gets an 8-inch color touch screen display which offers a smooth and user-friendly experience. The controls are touch sensitive and no physical buttons or dials are present, giving it a more modernistic approach. It also supports most of the current features like Android Auto and Apple Carplay. The infotainment system has been a novelty tucked into the dashboard. Giving the dashboard a clean and desirable look.

Some of the most notable infotainment features available with the 2023 Hyundai Tucson are:

  • Wireless Android Auto™ & Apple CarPlay®
  • Bluetooth® hands-free phone system
  • 12-volt outlet (2) 1 front/1 cargo
  • HD Radio Technology
  • AM/FM Audio System
  • Front dual USB outlets
Exterior

Talking about the exterior design, the Tucson uses advanced high strength and high tensile steel for the exterior structure which offer good rigidity to the overall body. The exterior design stands out with lots of angular lines. The most prominent feature is the new grille design and the headlight which offer the Tucson a modern look in terms of design. The new taillights are also eye-pleasing. The finer attention to detail like hiding the DRL neatly above the headlight and tucking away the rear wiper neatly behind the rear spoiler is also some praise-worthy exterior features. The Tucson is longer by 182.3 inches and wider by 73.4 inches. It has a total height of 65.6 inches and a low ground clearance of 7.1 inches giving it a low but noticeable stance.

In terms of our exterior design and dimension comparison we feel the Tucson has done a great job by focusing on these minor details to enhance the overall appearance of the SUV. We feel the design on Tucson is better than other competitors as it feels more fluidic and modern compared to other models which have a boxier design. The Tucson is also the longest, widest, and tallest in the segment. In terms of overall dimensions, the Mazda CX 5 feels more compact compared to the competition. The Honda CR-V has the shortest wheelbase making it more nimble and agile in city driving conditions.

Some standout exterior features include:

  • LED headlights
  • LED Daytime Running Lights (DRL)
  • LED front turn signals
  • Automatic headlights
  • High Beam Assist (HBA)
  • Roof-mounted Center High-Mount Stop Lamp (CHMSL)
  • Body Color side mirrors
  • Solar control front glass
  • Intermittent rear window wiper/washer
  • Shark-fin roof antenna
Safety

Even with the use of high-strength steel in the Tucson’s body construction. Its NHTSA crash test ratings are below the competitors who mostly have an overall rating of 5 stars compared to the 4 on Tucson. Except for the side test, all crash test ratings are rated at 4 stars on the Tucson. In terms of other safety features, the SE base trim gets a number of safety and driver assistance features which again makes it a desirable option compared to the competitors.

Other standout safety features include:

  • Adjustable front-seat shoulder belt anchors
  • Front seatbelt pretensioners and load limiters
  • LATCH lower anchors and upper tether anchors
  • Power window lock-out button
  • Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with 4-wheel disc brakes
  • Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control System (TCS) and Brake Assist (BA)
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) with individual tire indicator
  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FCA-Ped)
  • Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
  • Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
  • Rear Occupant Alert (ROA)
Competition

2023 Hyundai Tucson vs 2022 Honda CRV

The rivalry between these two models have been going on from the day both the SUV’s were launched, both Honda CRV and Hyundai Tucson are capable family SUVs. The former offers one of the best in class performance paired with better fuel efficiency in the segment. It also offers slightly better cargo space but lacks interior comfort and space in the front and rear rows and we feel while purchasing in this segment interior space and comfort play a vital role over performance hence our recommendation would side with the Hyundai Tucson more than the Honda CRV

2023 Hyundai Tucson vs 2022 Mazda CX 5 

The Mazda CX 5 given its more compact and aerodynamic design offers better driving dynamics and is more agile in corners and tight spaces. It also is more engaging to drive than the Tucson. Tucson scores mainly on the refined and mature ride quality on offer and not to mention the best-in-class interior space and the warranty provided by the company. The Tucson also returns slightly better MPG figures compared to the Mazda CX 5. In terms of pricing, both models are identically priced. In our opinion, the Tucson qualifies as the better family SUV.

2023 Hyundai Tucson vs 2022 Toyota Rav4

Hyundai and Toyota have been producing the best reliable vehicles for many years now and this has been continuing ever since. The RAV4 has a slightly better performance and also returns better MPG figures. The safety ratings on the RAV4 are also better compared to the Tucson. The Tucson scores in terms of the interior features and space which we feel is a bit more modern and intuitive. The Hyundai’s long warranty and after-sales support are also point worth noting when considering buying the Tucson. Overall both cars are on our recommendation list but for a family SUV, we feel the Tucson qualifies better.

Final Verdict

Hyundai Tucson is an ideal and well-suited SUV for families. It offers the best in class interior space and offers decent mileage which makes it a considerably better option in the long term. The Hyundai also offers one of the best after-sales and warranty, with a factory service and maintenance for 3 years or 36,000 miles whichever is earlier as complementary to new car owners. It also gives an additional limited warranty of 10-Year/ 100,000-Miles on the powertrain which is comparatively more than its competitors. The 2023 Hyundai Tucson will also be priced competitively making it a financially affordable proposition. The only downside we feel about the Tucson is its lack of performance compared with its peers which offer slightly better performance. Taking into consideration all the above facts, the Hyundai Tucson emerges as a recommended option from our end.
