2014 model year changes
For 2014, the Hyundai Tucson receives two new engine options with gasoline direct injection. The 2.0L 4-cylinder produces 164 horsepower and 151 ft-lb of torque, while the 2.4L 4-cylinder makes 182 horsepower and 177 ft-lb of torque, up from last year's 176 horsepower. The implementation of direct injection provides a great balance between performance and fuel economy, with the 2.0 returning an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city, while the 2.4 returns 24 mpg combined. The bigger engine is also capable of towing up to 2,000 when properly equipped. The 5-speed manual transmission has been dropped, and all Tucson models now utilize a six-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC manual control. Elsewhere, the Tucson gets new projector headlights with LED accents, plus LED taillights, standard amplitude selective dampers, new 17- and 18-inch alloy wheel designs, new interior colors, standard steering-wheel-mounted audio and cruise controls, two-stage reclining 60/40 split rear seats, standard Bluetooth hands-free connectivity, and more. Finally, the entry-level Tucson GLS offers all-wheel drive for the first time.

Special features for 2014
The Tucson has a lot going for it when matched up against the competition. With either available direct-injected 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 keeps it settled and stable on the open road but also maneuverable in tight spaces. Hyundai also notes that there is more interior space than in some vehicles a class larger, while rear-seat legroom is class-leading.
