2018 Hyundai Tucson: The Updated Rumors

If you are looking at the new images of the SUV, the design for the 2018 model will be looking brand new and somewhat sleeker. Tucson is said to come with slight changes and updates for the 2018 model, especially for the cargo space and sleeker exterior appearance.

New suspension and chassis are said to be include in the changes – including the wider and longer dimension. Performance will improve and so is the interior comfort. Thanks to the new material and new update, the cabin is expected to be quieter with more exclusive feel. All of these changes are expected to make the new 2018 Hyundai Tucson better – in handling, driving, and also power.

Somehow, Hyundai understands that Tucson isn’t as popular as they have expected – and they want to do something about it. When compared to other products in the crossover category, Tucson is way behind others. This is also one of the many reasons why they want to make a new and better version of the Tucson.

When compared to the 2017, the new 2018 Hyundai Tucson won’t be too much different. They will still come in various trims, from the SE, the better fuel economy Eco, the sportier Sport, the higher value SE Plus, and the top (as well as special) Limited.

It is expected that a new technology with Android Auto and CarPlay technology will be included in the new line, along with the new infotainment system. After all,  the overall exterior appearance is already good looking and styling so a tad change may be enough to refresh the overall look.

It is likely that the Tucson will be coming with the front wheel driving system – the optional all wheel driving system will cost you another spending of $1,400. The all wheel driving system may not be designed for the true off road performance but it should be able to handle the bumpy and rough terrains in a better system.

Different trims will get different engine arrangement for the 2018 Hyundai Tucson. The SE and the Plus will likely come with four cylinder engine with 2.0 liter capacity, delivering 164 hp of power, paired with the auto six speed transmission.
