What's New for the 2018 Hyundai Tucson?
In addition to a slightly lower price for the new model year, the Tucson has upgraded their standard tech offerings in all trims but the base model from a basic five-inch screen to a seven-inch touchscreen that includes both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto functionality, allowing seamless smartphone integration and access to your favorite apps. The Eco and Sport trims of the Tucson have been discontinued for 2018.
Trims and Features
The 2018 Hyundai Tucson can seat up to five passengers and accommodate up to three child safety seats with the rear-seat LATCH system. Above-average cargo space for the crossover class includes almost 70 cubic feet total and 31 cubic feet when the rear seats are in use.
The base model of the Tucson, known as the SE, is equipped with a rearview camera, keyless entry, and a five-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity.
Step up to the SEL model for the upgraded new infotainment system described above along with heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and satellite radio. Driver assistance tech in this trim includes rear cross-traffic alert, lane-keeping assistance, and blind-spot monitoring.
The SEL Plus trim adds two-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery and a leather-trimmed steering wheel, proximity key, an even larger 8-inch touchscreen, and a premium Infinity sound system.
The Tucson Value trim is one of two to include an upgraded engine (described below). While it doesn't have leather upholstery or navigation, it does add a hands-free liftgate and panoramic sunroof.
With the Tucson Limited trim, you'll enjoy all the features from other trims plus the opportunity to add an exclusive package that includes heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, a panoramic sunroof, and automatic emergency braking.
Two engines are available in the 2018 Hyundai Tucson. The SE, SEL, and SEL Plus trims include a four-cylinder engine and six-speed automatic transmission combo that offers 164 horsepower and an EPA-estimated 22/30 city/highway miles per gallon. If you opt for the Value or Limited trim, experience the power of a 175-hp turbo-four with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. This engine improves fuel economy to 25/30 city/highway mpg. Choose from standard front-wheel or optional all-wheel drive systems. Reviewers praise the Tucson's strong, composed handling.
Safety and Reliability
Its outstanding crash test scores have earned the 2018 Tucson Top Safety Pick designation from the Insurance Institute on Highway Safety. In addition, the 2018 Hyundai Tucson has a higher predicted reliability rating from J.D. Power and Associates than almost any other compact SUV. Its five-year/60,000-mile limited warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain limited warranty is also one of the most generous in the class.
How to Calculate The Dealer Cost of a Hyundai Tucson
Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base Hyundai Tucson invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of all the options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here)
Note: All Hyundai Tucson MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
