2021 Hyundai Tucson for Sale in Fairfield, CT
Hyundai’s middle-child utility vehicle, the Tucson, is a crossover that slots between the smaller Venue and Kona and the larger Santa Fe and Palisade. It returns for model year 2021 ahead of a full redesign that’s slated for 2022. This time around it adds a few new paint colors to its palette: Ash Black, Red Crimson, and Coliseum Gray. Of course, the ’21 Tucson continues to come with Hyundai’s generous 3-year/36,000-mile complimentary maintenance plan and 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
Trims and Powertrain
The 2021 Hyundai Tucson is offered in SE, Value, SEL, Sport, Limited, and Ultimate trim levels. The SE and Value levels are outfitted with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 161 horsepower, while the SEL, Sport, and Limited get a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine good for 181 horses. All trims get a six-speed automatic transmission; front-wheel drive is the default, but all-wheel drive is a very popular option with New Englanders. The Tucson promises fuel economy that’s above average for its class. The 2.0-liter models with FWD return an EPA-estimated 23 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, while the AWD models get 22 city/25 highway. The 2.4-liter models with FWD achieve 22 city/28 highway, and the AWD ones are good for 21 city/26 highway.
Standard and Optional Equipment
The base SE is provided with a good array of fundamental features, such as 17-inch wheels, automatic headlights, cloth seating arrangements, a 60/40 split fold-down rear seat, a handy dual-level cargo floor, a rearview camera, and a tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel. The Value adds LED exterior accents, heated side mirrors, roof rails, keyless entry and ignition, a power-adjustable driver’s seat, and heated front seats. The SEL delivers 18-inch wheels and dual-zone automatic climate control, while the Sport issues 19-inch wheels, LED headlights, a hands-free liftgate, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a wireless device charger. The Limited reinstalls the 18-inch wheels, but it bolsters the luxury factor with a heated steering wheel, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, a 360-degree camera system, and leather upholstery. The Ultimate raises the stakes with a panoramic sunroof, rain-sensing wipers, ventilated front seats, and heated rear outboard seats.
Active Safety and Tech Features
Most vehicle buyers by far are interested in getting as many active safety features as possible, and the Tucson does well in supplying them. The base SE has standard forward collision warning, lane-keep assist, and a driver attention warning monitor. The Value adds blind-sport monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and the Ultimate gets adaptive cruise control.
The SE receives a 7-inch infotainment touchscreen, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming, and a six-speaker audio system. The Value furnishes satellite and HD radio, while the Sport is improved with a premium eight-speaker Infinity audio system. The range-topping Ultimate packs in an 8-inch infotainment touchscreen and integrated navigation.
