    2005 Hyundai Tucson Review Summaries

    What reviewers liked most about the Hyundai Tucson

    • From a fit-and-finish standpoint, the Tucson is built as well, if not better, than any previous Hyundai.

      - AutoWeek
    • The cloth seats are comfortable and well cushioned for long-distance travel without having to pause to retune the vertebrae.

      - Cars.com
    • Not only is the V-6 spirited, it also performs quietly, a characteristic no longer reserved for the higher-priced competition.

      - Cars.com
    • Even my co-driver, who tugged and pulled at interior trim panels, was impressed by the solid-as-a-rock assembly of the Tucson's cabin.

      - Edmunds.com
    • Entry-level model comes with the latest safety features (such as stability control and side curtain airbags) that just a few years ago were seen only on luxury-brand SUVs.

    What reviewers liked least about the Hyundai Tucson

    • Hyundai must improve its steering, which provides nothing you could describe as "feel"; it's a rubbery and disconnected experience.

      - AutoWeek
    • Leather reminded us of vinyl as much as cowhide, and interior plastics are hard and uninviting to the touch.

      - AutoWeek
    • Being car-based and with no 4WD-low setting, we wouldn't advise heavy-duty off-roading or attempting to climb over fallen limbs.

    Hyundai Tucson Comparisons

    • The V6, while stronger than the Japanese competitors' engines, could use more power (Ford's new V6 Escape trumps the Tucson, with 200 hp and 193 lb-ft).

      - AutoWeek
    • Headroom, legroom and interior volume fall within the segment's range. At 170.3 inches long, it is shorter than the CR-V and Outlander, but its 103.6-inch wheelbase is nearly six inches greater than the RAV4's.

      - AutoWeek
    • The Ford Escape/Mazda Tribute twins have the edge when it comes to athletic handling.

      - Edmunds.com

    Best one-liner about the Hyundai Tucson

    • You can leave it in the driveway for others to admire that it's a lot of vehicle for the money-and is a Hyundai.
