Ever since its introduction and release, the Hyundai Tucson has been a bestseller. It's one of the smallest crossovers on the market, but that's just fine with the consumer who wants a nimble, easy-to-drive vehicle with just enough volume for the family to relax. It's available in a total of five trims, from the entry-level SE on up to the more luxurious Limited.

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson SE is affordably priced but isn't what most would expect, namely a stripped-down shell. It's quite the opposite. It comes with a long list of standard features, and its engine is powerful enough to get the vehicle up to freeway speeds with ease. The top-of-the-line Limited is of course more expensive, but buyers get a lot more than what they would expect from a compact crossover. Below, the highlights of both of these trims are discussed in more detail.


The entry-level 2018 Hyundai Tucson SE is powered by a four-cylinder engine that produces a total of 164 horsepower. The engine is an inline-4 with a compression ratio of 11.5:1. The valve train is a DOHC 16-valve with D-CVVT. Front-wheel drive is standard, but buyers can select all-wheel drive on this trim. Transmission is six-speed automatic with SHIFTRONIC. The Limited trim comes with a slightly more powerful engine, an inline-4 turbocharged power source with a displacement of 1.6L. It's rated at 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. It's also paired to the buyer's choice of front- or all-wheel drive. However, the transmission is seven-speed EcoShift dual-clutch. Both trims have motor-drive power, rack-and-pinion steering.


The entry-level SE isn't exactly luxurious, but it comes with all of the amenities one would expect in a vehicle in this price segment. The cloth upholstery is above-average quality, and the driver's seat is six-way adjustable. Standard features include 60/40 split-folding rear seatbacks with reclining, a dual-level cargo floor, and a 5-inch color screen display. The audio system is AM/FM/CD/MP3, and there's a total of six speakers including two front door-mounted speakers. There's one USB port, and the rearview camera is included as standard equipment. The uplevel Limited trim comes with leather seating, an eight-way power driver's seat, power lumbar, heated front seats, and an 8-inch screen display with navigation. The audio system has eight speakers, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay is included as is the rear view camera.


All 2018 Hyundai Tucson models come with dual front-mounted side-impact airbags, dual front airbags, and roof-mounted side-curtain airbags. Vehicle stability control and tire pressure monitoring are also standard. The SE comes with a driver's blind-spot mirror, and both the SE and Limited are equipped with the electronic shift lock system. Optional for the Limited trim are rear parking sensors, lane departure warning, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.

Choosing one of these trims is really just a matter of personal taste and what the buyer feels is necessary in terms of engine power, interior amenities, and safety systems.
