2017 Hyundai Tucson Night AWD

2017TucsonNightHyundai’s 2017 Tucson Night All-wheel-drive sedan that I drove recently was especially appealing for its colorful Caribbean Blue paint coat. This trim level of the Tucson, a small SUV, is one notch below the top Limited trim. The Tucson Night is loaded with great features that make its $The Tucso29,200 MSRP a bargain.

Operating on a 1.6 liter turbo-charged direct injection (GDI) 4-cylinder engine, with 7 speed EcoShift dual clutch transmission, the Tucson Night is a pleasure to drive. Active on demand all-wheel drive system can be turned on as needed by choosing preferred driving mode.

The Tucson’s fuel economy is good, averaging 25 mpg from its 24 mpg in town and 28 mpg on the highway. Annual fuel costs are only $1,450, which is not bad for any size SUV.

The Tucson Night boasts good-looking 19 inch alloy wheels that serve to enhance its all-wheel drive capabilities. Also featured are sporty looking aluminum pedals, roof side rails, and black side sills. One of my favorite features was the power-operated lift-gate, along with the panoramic sun roof. The cabin had a classy look with perforated leather-trimmed tilt and telescoping steering wheel. Stain resistant seats and premium door panels added to the cabin’s good looks.

A 3.5 inch LCD and multi-information display along with a 5 inch color touchscreen audio display with rear-view camera were also nice touches. Advanced safety technology included electronic stability control with traction control, electronic brake force distribution and brake assist, plus hill start and downhill brake control.

Blind spot detection with rear traffic alert was another desirable feature on the Tucson Night. Hyundai has a great warranty program that provides a five year/60,000 miles new vehicle warranty; 10-year or 100,000 mile powertrain warranty; 7 years with unlimited miles perforation warranty; plus five year, unlimited mile roadside service.

The Tucson Night model I tested had a total price tag of $20,220. The company had added carpeted floor mats worth $125, plus destination charges of $895, for that total price.
