In this article, let us discuss the reasons why you should buy a Hyundai Tucson, and what are the reasons why should not buy this car.
· WHY YOU SHOULD BUY IT? Hyundai Tucson is considered as one of the most reliable crossover vehicles in the market today because of its turbocharged engine that excitingly offers a stronger performance for its driver. With its 1.6-Litre Turbo-4 Engine that gives it a generous amount of power by pairing up a nicely seven-speed dual clutch auto transmission that can generate 175 horsepower, and of course, it will still maintain its smoothness and refined performance despite being loaded with passengers and cargo. Another reason to buy Hyundai Tucson is its top of the line safety and technological features. Its infotainment features are perfect for a family that is scheduled for a long travel while its standard safety features include electronic stability as well as traction control, hill-hold assistance, and a lot of airbags inside the cabin of the vehicle. Its mitigation system is packed with a blind spot monitoring and a forward collision warning system. In terms of technological features, just like most offerings, it has Bluetooth capabilities, power features, as well as touchscreen infotainment systems that comes with the standard quality. Because of its top of the line safety features, a lot of car buyers love its high-rating that the government crash safety tests gave to it during its banner year.
· WHY YOU SHOULD NOT BUY IT? A lot of car buyers complain about its sluggish base engine which for many is too slow and too clunky and its seven-speed automatic transmission does not match this kind of engine, and its base trim, on the other hand, is the only one you can obtain, which forces its owner to upgrade to the 1.6-Litre engine. Also, its seven-speed transmission does not shift well during a low-speed drive when in fact, this kind of transmission is designed for high-speed vehicles which are designed to stay in fast in speedways and freeways. Also, most of the features mentioned above are only available to the highest trim level in the market.
Bottom line is, the 2018 Hyundai Tucson may be an extremely reliable and driver-friendly vehicle, but its base trim, however, costs you a lot of money if you wish to buy the upper-level versions of it but overall, this vehicle is very ideal for long drives because of its smooth performance and comfort.
