North Kingstown RI - 2021 Hyundai Tucson's Overview

Exterior - 2021 Hyundai Tucson

There are two new ways to color your Tucson this year: Red Crimson and Ash Black. The base SE comes with 17-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, automatic headlamps and a manual liftgate through which you access the main cargo area, which measures 31 cubic feet. Opting for the Value trim gets you keyless entry, heated side mirrors and roof rails. The SEL boasts 18-inch wheels and features exterior styling cues that are not on the SE and Value. The Sport trim adds 19-inch wheels, LED headlamps, LED taillamps, fog lamps and a power hands-free liftgate for more convenient access to the cargo area. The Limited features enhanced door trim, and the Ultimate adds automatic high beams and wipers.

The 2021 Hyundai Tucson available at Tarbox Hyundai serving all of Rhode Island is a two-row crossover with seating for five passengers that is available at six trim levels. The SE is the base model but well-equipped: a modern infotainment system, a 7-inch touch-display, a USB port, Apple and Android smartphone integration, an audio system with six speakers and a 60/40-split folding rear seat. The Value adds a number of popular features but at less cost than it takes to step up to the up-level trim.

Two distinct engines are available for the Tucson, but Hyundai pairs both to a Shiftronic six-speed automatic transmission. Shiftronic allows you to override the automatic transmission and shift gears manually for greater control. In either mode, that transmission distributes power to the front wheels in the standard configuration, but you can opt for all-wheel drive at all trim levels. The first engine is a 2.0L i-4, which is reserved for the SE and Value trims. It makes 161 hp and 150 lb.-ft. The second engine is under the hood of all other trims. It is a 2.4L i-4 that makes 181 hp and 175 lb.-ft. A tow option is available. With that equipment, the SE and Value can tow up to 1,500 pounds and all other trims can tow as much as 2,000 pounds.

Safety - Hyundai Tucson in North Kingstown RI

The 2020 Tucson has received excellent ratings from both the NHTSA and IIHS, including Top Safety Pick recognition. A standout aspect of the Tucson is the driver assistance package included with the base model. It includes a collision avoidance system, lane keeping alert and lane keeping assist. Another reason to opt for the Value trim over the base trim is that it adds blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-path detection and Blue Link, which provides emergency assistance and many other features. The Limited is notable is that it upgrades the standard rearview camera to a surround-view model. The Ultimate gets adaptive cruise control in addition to a collision avoidance system with more advanced features.
