2018 Tucson Technology Features

Entertainment on the go is a must-have, and the 2018 Tucson provides it via the Blue Link® infotainment system. Above the base trim, it comes standard with a 7- or 8-inch touchscreen and offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ for intuitive smartphone integration.

Just pair your compatible iPhone® or Android device, and you can use several of your favorite apps with your own voice or the touchscreen pad. From phone calls to text messages, music to navigation directions, you'll be connected in ways more than one.

When you're jamming out to your favorite tunes, the optional Clari-Fi™ Music Restoration Technology can make them sound even better! It restores the clarity often lost when producing digital music, giving your music a more crisp, clear, and authentic feel.

Engine Performance Specs

You have three engine options in the Hyundai Tucson. The first two, the base 2.0-liter 4-cylinder (with 164 horsepower) and the Tucson Sport's 2.4-liter 4-cylinder (lending 181 horses), each come paired with a six-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission, which can switch into manual mode to give you extra control.

Those powertrains are fine for running around town, but you may choose the 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder (175 horses) if you need to get up to speed quicker. The turbocharger adds a sense of briskness, and the seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission this engine pairs with is a sublime gear shifter.

Advanced Safety Features

As an IIHS 2018 TOP SAFETY PICK sporting an NHTSA 5-Star Overall Safety Rating, the 2018 Tucson is no slouch as far as safety. It offers a range of available driver-assist features as well, to help avoid or mitigate accidents before they happen. Those features include:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection. This system can warn you of oncoming collisions with cars and pedestrians in the road-and apply the brakes if needed.
  • Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. If there's another car in your blind spot when you signal a lane change, or a car coming from the side as you're backing up, you'll be warned.
  • Lane Departure Warning. You'll hear an alert if you start drifting from your lane without signaling.
