2013 Hyundai Tucson OVERVIEW

The five-seat Hyundai Tucson comes in three trims -- GL, GLS, and Limited -- and offers two engines. A 2.0-liter four-cylinder is standard in the base model, while a 2.4-liter four-cylinder powers the GLS and Limited. The GLS and Limited meet California's stringent standards for partial zero emissions.

Two transmissions are available. The GL comes standard with a five-speed manual; a six-speed automatic is optional. The GLS and Limited, meanwhile, both feature a six-speed automatic. GLS and Limited buyers may also choose between front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive.

Standard in all trims are a 60/40 split folding rear seat, privacy glass, 12v outlet, auxiliary audio jack and iPod/USB connectivity, air conditioning, keyless entry, and power windows and door locks. Upgrading to the GLS gives buyers 17-inch alloy wheels, heated side mirrors and front seats, a tilting and telescoping steering wheel, roof rails, and automatic fog lights and headlights. If that isn't enough, the Limited adds 18-inch alloy wheels, leather seats, dual temperature controls, and a fully adjustable driver seat with bonus lumbar support.

Every Hyundai Tucson comes with anti-lock brakes, brake assist, stability and traction control, hill holder and descent control, and front and side airbags.

Since each Tucson comes with so many standard features, option packages barely exist. The only one is the Premium Package, and it's available only for Limited models. Features include a panoramic sunroof, upgraded 7-speaker stereo system with an external amplifier and subwoofer, touchscreen navigation, and a handy rearview camera.
