The 2018 Hyundai Tucson: A Top Safety Pick

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson: A Top Safety Pick

Looking for a versatile, safe SUV? Check out the 2018 Hyundai Tucson, now available in Orangeville at Orangeville Hyundai for a test drive or tire kicking at your convenience.

More practical than sedans and cheaper than full-size SUVs, compact crossovers like the 2018 Hyundai Tucson are a great choice for our busy lifestyles, delivering many advantages not found in other vehicles.

Everyone has their own criteria when it comes to choosing a new vehicle. Size, type, cargo space and fuel economy all factor into most people's decisions, but many people seem to take a vehicle's safety features for granted. The 2018 Hyundai Tucson takes vehicle safety to a whole new level, making it impossible to ignore.

The 2018 Tucson received the highest possible overall safety rating of five stars from the National Highway Transportation Safety Authority. On top of this, it is a Top Safety Pick with the IIHS after acing all of its safety tests with flying colours. Hyundai isn't fooling around when it comes to safety.

Available in an assortment of trims, a wide assortment of safety features are all available for the 2018 Tucson, some of them as standard equipment. These range from Advanced High Strength Steel to LED headlights. Rounding out the packages are a series of semi-autonomous, radar-based features such as Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Detection with Lane Change Assist, Lane Departure Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Rear Parking Assist and a backup camera with dynamic guidance.  

Of course, the Tucson is more than just a safe vehicle. It's a fun compact crossover that seats 5 comfortably in a high-quality outfitted interior. Like most vehicles, the higher the trim, the more features that are included. However, even the value-packed base SE model of the Tucson comes equipped with a 2.0L engine, backup camera, Bluetooth, satellite radio, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 6-way adjustable heated driver's seat, a telescoping and tilt steering wheel with built-in audio, phone and cruise controls, and a touchscreen. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are built-in. Higher-end trims go up from there, dressing the Tucson up with chrome accents, more safety features and even heated seats in the rear.

In the looks category, the Tucson is attractive, and exudes self-confidence. In an attempt to attract younger buyers, many compact crosses are designed with funky colour schemes or body molding. The Tucson boasts more mature styling and a more upscale appeal.

Another big consideration when purchasing an SUV or crossover is cargo space. The Tucson has ample space in the back, and much more once the rear seats are folded down. There is even enough space for an adult-sized bicycle, to put things into perspective. There are several small storage places throughout the cabin, and a hands-free power liftgate makes loading and unloading easier.

The 2018 Hyundai Tucson is versatile, value-packed and above all, safe. If safety is at the top of your list when it comes to shopping for a new vehicle, you should drop by Orangeville Hyundai and experience it for yourself!
