The Hyundai Tucson has become a great alternative for those looking for a crossover with much of what the larger Santa Fe has to offer, but at a cheaper price. The Tucson is one of the newest cars to Hyundai’s lineup and picks up where the overall concept leaves off. Bringing out the very best in class, performance, and aggressive styling. With the reality of the 2018 Hyundai Tucson getting closer, it’s time to disclose all we know so far.
The 2018 Tucson is already drawing huge comparisons as the crossover concept has become just as popular as a sedan or SUV. Being able to get the best of both, the new Tucson looks to improve while enhancing much of what consumers complained about in the current model. The new models will once again be a five passenger compact crossover/SUV, offer both FWD and AWD, more interior leg room than comparable vehicles, and have great 360 degree visibility.
The following preview details everything we know so far on the new 2018 Hyundai Tucson specs, features, price, and release date for all models including the ECO, Limited, SE, and Sport.
2018 Hyundai Tucson Specs and Features – ECO, Limited, SE, and Sport Model
Speculation on the 2018 Hyundai Tucson specs and features suggests we’ll be seeing a refined version of the current model. Some of the most notable features likely to be seen is improved gas mileage and a better crash rating will surely bring in a new class of consumers. While the 2017 Tucson is already considered a formidable SUV/crossover, the new model will certainly be even better.
The 2018 Tucson will offer Hyundai’s signature styling on both the inside and outside while seeing a slight redesign to the front-end. We’re also hearing a lighter aluminum will be seen across all 2018 models which will make the Tucson lighter, more fuel efficient, and offer better handling. The storage options including behind the rear seat will be plentiful, but we’re hoping to see some of this passed on to backseat passengers.
On the exterior, we’ll see the signature styling that we’ve come to expect with rumors suggesting a wider, and thinner front-end will be seen making it sportier. LED lighting, twin chrome tipped exhaust, panoramic sunroof, bending lighting system, and alloy wheels will be seen. On the interior, the highlights will be the intuitive touchscreen display offering navigation, backup camera, Android Auto, Apple support, satellite radio, hands-free calling, Bluetooth, BlueLink multimedia, and much more.
The 2018 Hyundai Tucson engine will come in two options including a 1.8 liter with nearly 180-hp and a 2.0 liter with about 165-hp along with a 7 and 6 speed automatic and auto-manual transmission. The gas mileage will certainly be better ranging between 22-27MPG/city and 27-35MPG/highway.
2018 Hyundai Tucson Price and Release Date – ECO, Limited, SE, and Sport Model
Nothing has been revealed as of yet on the upcoming price of the 2018 Tucson, but speculation suggests not much will change between the 2017 and 2018 models. Below, we have detailed what we should see for the launch price for the ECO, Limited, SE, and Sport models.

The actual reveal should take place during the 1st ½ of 2017 which should give us a bit more insight on the upcoming 2018 Hyundai Tucson release date. For those looking for something now, we should see consumer availability start during late Q3 to early Q4 of 2017 in most markets globally while others will have to wait until Q1 of 2018. While this is mere speculation at this point, it’s pretty consistent with the latest leaks out of South Korea.
