What to Expect from the 2018 Hyundai Tucson

Drivers expect a lot from the new Hyundai models on our lot, and the 2018 Hyundai Tucson is ready to meet or exceed all their expectations. It offers a range of comfort-ensuring features, like heated and ventilated seats, and convenient tech, like Android Auto and Apple CarPlay programs for use of mobile apps on a large in-dash touchscreen display, that reduce stress levels of all passengers when on the go. You can see some in-depth specs below.

Capability and Engine Options

Oak Lawn drivers will have three engines to pick from, but each delivers a capable ride, and each is available with all-wheel drive to help out when in low-traction situations that we in the area know all too well. The engines are:

  • A 164-horsepower 2.0-liter four-cylinder that gets up to an EPA-estimated 26 mpg combined
  • A 181-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder that gets up to 24 mpg combined
  • A 175-horsepower 1.6-liter turbo engine with 195 pound-feet of torque and up to 27 mpg combined thanks to a ultra-smooth 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission

Comfort and Design

The sleek outside of the Hyundai Tucson makes it easier for drivers to fit in tighter parking spots, but the cabin has all the room that you need for passenger and cargo transport. There's over 100 cubic feet of passenger room spread between the two rows, and the cargo area holds 31 cubic feet of gear, whether that's groceries or sports equipment is up to you. Need more room? The 60/40 split fold-down rear seats that are standard on every model make it easy to create nearly 62 cubic feet of connected space behind the first row, which is great for larger or oddly shaped items, like furniture.

Which Trim Level of the 2018 Hyundai Tucson is Right for You?

Comfort, capability, and practicality are traits that Tinley Park car shoppers will find in every Hyundai Tucson model, but they'll also find that there are six trim levels to choose from on our lot. These trims differ in the standard and available features as well as the engines powering them, but, below, you'll see a rundown of what to expect from each, so that it's easier to pick the right configuration for you!


Starting at $22,550, the base model comes with the 2.0-liter engine and the option for front- or all-wheel drive, and it doesn't hold back on the features either. Drivers will find a rearview camera, 17-inch wheels, stain-resistant cloth seats, rear window defroster, heated side mirrors, a 5-inch color touchscreen, and more great features that all come standard.


For $1,250 more, the SEL trim comes with the same powertrain but adds standard features like fog lights, roof rails, heated front seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and a 7-inch touchscreen for the infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.

SEL Plus

At $26,700, the SEL Plus trim possesses the same powertrain and some of the same features, but, as you may have guessed from the name, adds features like Blind Spot Detection, LED approach lights in the door handles, leather cabin upholstery, dual-zone temperature control, 8-inch touchscreen, and more to make trips even more enjoyable.


Again, the name says it all as the Sport trim comes with the 181-horsepower engine and 19-inch wheels to show off its sporty nature. With an MSRP of $25,150, it actually costs less than the SEL Plus, but it doesn't have features like leather seats, auto-dimming rear-view mirror, and 8-inch touchscreen of the SEL Plus. However, it still houses the features you need for a convenient ride, like Lane Change Assist and Blind Spot Detection.


The Value trim comes in at $26,550, just under the SEL Plus, and it comes with the most efficient powertrain option, the 1.6-liter turbocharged engine with a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission. While it doesn't have the leather seats of the SEL Plus trim, it does have a hands-free liftgate, panoramic sunroof, rear parking sensors, and more that highlight how it earned its name.


The highest trim level, the $29,425 Limited model comes with many of the same features as the SEL Plus trim, but it adds LED exterior lighting and a hands-free rear liftgate while also offering features like ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and headlights with a Dynamic Bending Lighting System.
