Overall a good car with nice add-ons.

I love that my vehicle comes with the panoramic sunroof, it is beautiful and one of the biggest reasons I choose this car. Driving is smooth I wish it came with an automatic start like my prior car but I had one added aftermarket. I love the keyless entry and lock although I wish there was a way I could hit the button twice or something and unlock all doors instead of just the door I am touching. Very comfortable love the steering wheel and the options for driving such as sport mode and locked in 4 wheel drive. Overall definitely a good car.

Love my money saving vehicle!

I love the way my car handles, gas mileage is good. Plenty of space and great safety features enables me to pi up groceries, gardening items easily. Feel protected with the navigation and safety warnings. Comforting to know you can call for assistance if needed. Leather seats are easy to take care of and don't worry about my fur baby riding in car. Enjoy the darkened windows so you are protected from sun and people are unable to see packages left in your vehicle when you go from store to store. Great vehicle le.

Amazing smooth, yet sporty quality.

I absolutely love my vehicle. The drive is extremely smooth. We looked at other makes and models and we ultimately decided on going with my vehicle. When we shopped for a car, we knew there were some items we didn't want to give up and had to have. We love the keyless entry part of our car. I believe that any woman should own this feature. It is my favorite when out at night because I do not need to be worry about looking for my keys in my purse when it is dark outside.

- Xenia O

Basic but practical, with great safety features.

I currently have the basic model, no bells or whistles. It is slow and loud to accelerate but is comfortable and a smooth ride. The backup camera takes some getting used to but is a nice feature for added safety. Hands free phone is convenient but the touch screen control panel for all the features like the radio, etc. Can be distracting. Not a fan of the daytime lights but that can be dimmed or shut off. Overall, I love the Tucsons and they have high safety ratings.

2018 Hyundai Tucson review.

Pros to purchasing a 2018 Hyundai Tucson is overall safety features. My Tucson came with backup camera, which is highly useful and an added safety feature when backing up. Mpg is great. To fill up my vehicle is 30 dollars and I get roughly 400-430 mpg. The space for the price is wonderful compared to other vehicles in its class. Smaller features like heated seats, touch screen navigation and hands free calling come standard which is amazing for the price.

- Meghan H

Hyundais in general are very reliable so you can trust that you won't need to spend a great deal on repairs but instead will get many years of consistent use.

I just bought the car about 2 weeks ago, so I am not positive about everything yet, but I like that the interior is upgraded with Apple CarPlay and Bluetooth. It has a large touch screen which is very nice. It handles well and thus far gets good gas mileage. I used to have a Sante Fe, which was a bit large, and taller. I do wish this was a bit taller because I prefer sitting up higher in a car, but it is still better than how low a lot of sedans are.


overall good small SUV but lacking fuel economy.

overall it is very comfortable and spacious for us and our two kids. Apple carplay is great and even lets you use waze for navigation right on the dashboard. The hands free texting is a great asset for me so I can contact people to let them know I am on my way. On the down side the transmission is sluggish and it has a small gas tank only 14 gal and bad gas mileage. Maybe 17 mpg around town and 24 highway if practical use.

- Tom W

My adorable Hyundai Tucson!

I love my Hyundai Tucson! It is an SUV but is not too large and bulky for me. It drove very smooth, I do have turbo which helps, but I feel in control of the vehicle! I always feel safe in any Hyundai. The interior is simple and sleek, I went for black on black and I love it! I also have a very large sunroof, backup camera, apple carplay etc. It's a fantastic vehicle that I am happy to drive everyday!

- Rachael H

Buying a Hyundai is a process.

The price is great, performance includes multi-speed, turbo automatic that makes passing on highways and up mountains little to no effort. The seats are super comfortable, the speaker system is upgraded to make listing at its best. The interior is perfect for hot summers in Arizona, the moonroof expands to the second row of seats allowing everyone to enjoy the fresh air, sun and sky.

- Donna O

We love traveling in our new vehicle!

We purchased our new Hyundai Tucson a little over a couple of months ago. It has been a great vehicle for our family. We are always on the go, we have four boys, so we go often! I wished the Tucson had a third row to make traveling with our entire crew easier but our oldest is driving now so we are able to make it work. We love this vehicle! It's like a car and SUV at the same time!

- Trisha T

It looks really fancy from the outside. Looks like a luxury car.

I wish the car wasn't as simple as it is. It looks really nice from the outside, but for the amount of money I paid, I really wish it had some features such as heated seats. I do love the Bluetooth, all wheel drive and the ability to hook up the phone to my car. It does eat a lot of gas, I feel like for a compact SUV the gas goes really quick.

- Anna M

Sleek, comfortable, and reliable.

I haven't had any problems with my vehicle! The vehicle has been incredibly reliable and gets excellent gas mileage. Both the interior and exterior are sleek and the interior provides amazing comfort. The backup cameras feature is an awesome addition and provides me (not the best driver) an added sense of security when reversing.

- Amanda M

Tucson is a great value for a very affordable price.

My 2018 Hyundai Tucson has a lot of features I love in a small SUV and the price was perfect. It has start button push start, Apple play, driver assist and panoramic roof. I have had no complaints or issues the last 7 months I have owned or driven it. I have even influenced 2 other friends to purchase the same vehicle as well.

- Meredith N

It's a perfect fit. Has the car feel when driving. But I feel safer.

Love my Tucson. I have always wanted to buy one. It doesn't feel like I am driving a tank. It's the perfect size. It drives very well. It's just enough room for my dogs. I can fit one in the very back and one in middle. Then they aren't fight. I can't wait till it snows to get out there and drive around and see what it can do.

- Angela G

Luxury at affordable price.

The vehicle is very comfortable. The features that it can come with such as heated seats, blind spot monitoring, etc.. Really make the ride enjoyable. The panoramic sunroof makes it feel like a luxury vehicle. Gas mileage is fantastic! If you are looking for a safe and reliable vehicle look at this vehicle.

- Laura M

Love our Hyundai Tucson, which recommend it to anyone.

This a great vehicle, comfortable and very reliable. We have not had any issues with the vehicle and would recommend it to anyone and also buy another one when the time comes. This is our second Tucson and really enjoy driving and riding in it. We would recommend it to anyone looking for an SUV.

- J P

CarPlay in Tucson favorite feature.

This is the second Tucson I have owned. The mid-range standard equipped “extras” are solid. (butt warmers, steering wheel controls etc. ). Plenty of room for daily life or a long weekend camping trip. Apple/android car play is hands down one of my favorite features included with my stereo.

- Meagan D

White Hyundai Tucson with panoramic sunroof and many features!

Love this car because it has all the features! The panoramic sunroof is awesome! The blind spot assist is super helpful. It rides very smooth. We just bought it recently so not sure of any problems yet, but we have owned Hyundais before and never had many issues. I would definitely recommend!

- Gina P

Gets you where you are going and fun to drive.

I haven't had any problems with my car. It rides nice, but has a little too much road noise. It goes great in the snow and has a 4wd lock for it. It is a smaller SUV but has plenty of room. Easy to park. The backup camera helps a lot. It is a fun car to drive and I would overall recommend it.

- Melanie S

Great features and great price.

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson is a great, reliable car. The value edition includes heated front seats, sunroof and cross traffic alerts. Android auto is a great feature as well. The ride is smooth and accelerates well even when not in sport mode. Overall a great car for the features and the price.

- Anderson A

I like the powertrain warranty.

I like that Hyundai has the 100,000 powertrain warranty. I like that it is reliable and it also has all wheel drive. I like that it drives well and is comfortable too. I like the color of my vehicle and all of its features and how Hyundai offered many incentives to me when I bought the car.

- Kristen S

The best bang for your buck in an industry that will take your money and leave you feeling unsatisfied

I love my Tucson! It's so roomy in the front and back AND in the hatch. It's a very safe car. I love having blind spot detection and a rear backup camera. It will be the perfect family car once I have kids. It gets great gas mileage. My fiancé is jealous of it every time we look at it.

- Bianca B

Tucson is short driver friendly!

I have had this vehicle for a year now and haven't had a single problem. It is comfortable and drives smoothly. I love the sport mode option! As a shorter driver, the Tucson accommodates all of my needs. There are limited blind spots and the full screen back up camera is beyond helpful.

- Erica S

It is awesome. The vehicle itself is amazing.

No problems it is fully loaded and the performance is awesome. Very reliable and drives smooth and nice. It has a sunroof and electric seats and heated seat it was the best decision about a vehicle that I have made. The people at the dealership were great and treated us really well.

- Tina Brown B

Buying my Tucson saved me so much money on gas and frustration in the winter time.

Love my heated seats and it drives well awesome in the snow. Not a fan of the color but AWD makes up for the difference. Cheaper to fill my tank $30 than what I had before a 2017 sonata with eco and that was $38 would recommend to anyone looking for a SUV that's smaller on the size.

- Sasha C

Reliable and comfort an the safety features.

I enjoy my vehicle it handles well on highway as well as local streets. It is a reliable vehicle. Very comfortable on long drives. I do not have all the features making it cheaper when I purchased it. Now I am sorry I didn't get more accessories I do not have the blue link or GPS. .

- Patricia R

Good affordable family car even for short people.

Love the smaller SUV feel of the car. The heated seats are nice as is the rear wiper. The new CarPlay feature is great. The vehicle is not so high off the ground that my seven year needs help getting in. The folding side view mirrors are also very helpful when street parking.

- Jessica M

How much I love my new car. The best features.

No prob. Love it. I love the warranty and the free yearly oil changes. I live the seat warmers, the price was right for all the amenities. The leather is not sticky. There is just enough room for everything. I wish there was a little more seat room that didn't cost anymore.

- Tracey S

Wise car purchase for a senior citizen.

The doors open very wide so it is difficult to reach when I am in the car to close. Sometimes when I step on the gas to increase speed the car is slow to accelerate. I wish there was an air conditioner vent in the back. I wish I could see my texts and emails on the screen.

- Joy D

Perfect family car for a family of four!

This car has great gas mileage and is the perfect size for two car seats. It is not too big so it is still easy to park and drive on crowded roads. But it is still an SUV so it has plenty of truck space. The front seat is very roomy as well. The heated seats are a bonus!

- Heather M

Love the panoramic sunroof.

So far I love everything about this vehicle! The panoramic sunroof is by far my favorite feature and was a must on my list of features. The heated seats are also a great feature. The car drives smooth and quiet. Back has plenty of space for adults to travel comfortably.

- Renee W

Decent bang for your buck.

I really like all of the features like the carplay and the leather seats. It picks up quickly and is amazing on gas. I do not like that it does not have auto start standard and was a lot more money. There were not many options with a sunroof either. Nice color options.

- Kat N

Why I have a new car and it is blue in color.

I just bought the car couple of weeks ago. Reason I got rid of my truck is for the cheaper payments. And to have something smaller and easier to drive. I had no need for a truck anymore and it has been wrecked so I would not get much for it anymore. My car is blue.

- Melinda M

Big change. Love the audio system, I can just plug in my flash drive and listen.

Have had no issues so far with the Tucson. Love the visibility it offers as well as the pickup when taking off or passing. This vehicle is comfortable and easy to drive, the audio system is top notch and has features I haven't used yet even after 8 months.

- Will B

Hyundai cars and if they are reliable cars.

I don't really have much to say other than it is an economical car. They should add GPS even to the base models in case they are stolen. They are sporty cars and have great gas mileage. The only thing I do not understand is the three door Veloster model.

- Jade M

It's comfortable and spacious. It's also a smooth drive.

I love how it handles, the foot room in both the front and back, and the storage space. I'm also a huge fan of the added bells and whistles such as Bluetooth, backup camera, and the blind spot mirror. I don't like the rear view mirror lack of range.

- Merrie H

The Safety Features! We really like the Blind Spot Detection Feature and Back up Camera!

Have only had the Tucson for 17 days but We Love it! It is very comfortable for me, I am only 5'3 and had to use a cushion behind my back in my last car. The steering is better and it has Blind Spot Detection which is what sold my husband!

- Kimberly M

The mileage you get on a tank of gas.

The Tucson is smooth riding on the road. It is easy getting in and out for someone my age. Good on gas. The seats are comfortable on long distance drives. I would recommend this vehicle to my friend and family especially my age group.

- Patricia R

It is very comfortable to drive, although I wish the windows had more glass.

My car is very comfortable and easy to drive. It does have features I do not use, but I do like the modern conveniences. It was reasonably priced and is good on gas. Love the air conditioning!The dealership was good to work with.

- Susan P

It is a great value for a crossover SUV.

There was an issue with the keyless entry on the driver's side door. No matter how close or far you are in proximity, the button on the door does not work. We found out it is a manufacture defect and Hyundai is replacing it.

- Star S

great vehicle with lots of room, super comfy and easy to drive

it is a brand new car and so far i love it. so much space and easy to drive. great sound quality of radio. love the technology features and the buttons on the steering wheel to control everything in the car.

- jenna S

Safety - it is higher off the road than the Honda CR-V and wider.

I just purchased and only had it 3 weeks so it really hard to give many details because it is so new. . . But so far I am very pleased with the performance of the vehicle and would recommend it to others.

- Debbie M

It drives really smooth and you may not notice you are speeding.

I love the size of the vehicle and how safe I feel in it. I love the body style of the vehicle. My only complaint is that it doesn't have a cd player and how everyone is expected to be going digital.

- Marcela G

It has one of the highest crash safety ratings which is why I bought it.

I like the size. It is not too big but has enough room for everything. It handles well. I don't like the features. Seems a little basic for the price and model. Gets great gas mileage though.

- Rebecka P

The room inside. The car is very roomie and has lost of space.

The vehicle is well equipped with the most recent technology. I love the leather interior. The vehicle manufacturer did a great job with making a mid priced SUV look like a high end SUV.

- Todd S

The Hyundai Tucson is a luxury SUV in a sporty and economic price range. The unique full roof sunroof is a luxury among none others!

Personally, this car is an amazingly fuel efficient and perfectly sized car for any type of user. It allows for easy mobility of different things because the trunk space is so large.

- Jade B

Second Tucson is better than ever

This is my second Tucson. I love the body style and it fits my needs perfectly. Every day I drive it makes me happier Next time I will get the Santa Fe just because it's roomier

- Ana A

The value for what we paid for the vehicle is excellent.

The Tuscan is great on gas mileage. It is a comfortable ride. The features are okay, but not as many as our previous vehicle. However, I feel we got good value for the cost.

- Leland W

It's reliable and will get you where you need to go comfortably.

I like the comfort and features. It has leather seats, seat warmers, dual climate control, Android auto, navigation and Bluetooth. I wish the gas mileage was a little better.

The one most important thing others should know about my car is that it is reliable.

It seems to have plenty of power and lots of room for both cargo and passengers

I like the newer technologies included, the Height of the vehicle adds a lot of visibility and there is a lot of cargo room. I do wish it got better gas mileage

- Will B

Sporty but lacks trunk space.

My car is very sporty looking. It runs smoothly. I do find that I wish it was bigger now that we have a child. I feel like the trunk does not hold enough stuff.

- Amanda C

Hyundais are pretty good cars now. I did a lot of research and I was surprised.

It's plush and a vast improvement on previous decades of Hyundai's. Great tech, decent mileage. My only complaint is that the engine is a little underpowered.

- Nona P

It's the perfect car for moms. There's enough space for kids and all their sports gear or school things.

It's the perfect size. It fits my 2 kids and their car seats perfectly. It drives so smooth and I've had no problems with it. I love everything about it.

- Angela M

It's a lot nicer than you think, rides smoothly and has a lot of bells and whistles.

Good value for the price. Smooth ride, has most of the gadgets I need. It is missing adaptive cruise control and a keypad to get into the car w/o a key.

- Colleen C

Great product for the price. Lots of room and comfortable

Like the room, the backup camera and the feel on the road. Dislike that it didn't come with a cover for the trunk area and no tint on the front windows

For my family it is meets all the things we need that is important.

Size and reliability have no complaints about the vehicle since it is new. It also is something we wanted for our dog to travel in when we go camping.
