, Senior Automotive Editor -

When Hyundai launched the Elantra-based Tucson in 2005, it was the Korean automaker’s first entry in the compact crossover SUV segment.

A welcome redesign for 2010 addressed some of the original model’s weaknesses with more power, better styling and an improved interior. Like many crossovers in its class, the Tucson comes in front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive versions; unlike some others, though, it lacks a 6-cylinder option. True to Hyundai philosophy, the Tucson impresses buyers with an array of standard features, competitive pricing and a generous 10-year warranty.
