2011 model year changes

The Hyundai Tucson, a compact crossover SUV, was just fully redesigned for the 2010 model year but returns for the 2011 with a new Tucson GL base model, available only with front-wheel drive and with a smaller, slightly more economical 2.0L engine. GLS models get a much-improved standard equipment list that includes such things as a telescopic steering wheel, steering-wheel audio controls, leather trim, Bluetooth, roof side rails and new trims, while Limited models get a new auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink universal garage-door opener and Sachs Adaptive Selective Dampers for a better ride. Heated seats now come standard on all Tucson models with all-wheel drive. For 2011, the Tucson's Motor Driven Power Steering system has been upgraded to work better with the stability control system.

Special features for 2011

The Tucson, which was redesigned last year, has a lot going for it when matched up compared to the competition. With either available engine, the Tucson has some of the highest combined and highway fuel economy ratings in its class. The Tucson has a longer wheelbase than its rivals yet has one of the shortest turning diameters, which makes it settled and stable on the open road yet also maneuverable in tight spaces. Hyundai also says that there's more interior space than in some vehicles a size larger, and rear-seat legroom is class-leading. The 2011 Tucson also has a higher 3-year residual value than the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, and Toyota RAV4, which might mean better deals for those either looking for a lease or those only looking to keep a new car for a few years.
Represented in a revised trim level assortment for 2011, the Hyundai Tucson compact crossover comes in either GL, GLS and Limited model. GL standard features include tilt steering column, rear spoiler and a 6-speaker audio system. Equipped with a 2-liter 4-cylinder powerplant capable of 165 horsepower and 146 lb-ft of torque, the 2011 Tucson GL can only be matched with a 6-speed manual gearbox combined with front-wheel drive. Introducing an interior mixed with cloth and leather materials, the GLS adds cruise control as well as Bluetooth connectivity. The Limited trim upgrades to a full leather cabin including dual-zone climate control. An AWD option can be selected on GLS and Limited models of the Hyundai Tucson powered by a 176 horsepower 2.4 liter engine. Granting a mild 11 horsepower bump over the 2011 Tucson GL, a 2.4 liter inline 4-cylinder powerplant is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission featuring a manual shifting mode. A 170 horsepower partial zero emissions version of the 2.4 liter engine is available in California. The 2011 Hyundai Tucson comes standard with enhanced electronic stability control, six airbags and four-wheel disc brakes with an anti-lock braking system.
