Tucson Eco Most Affordable Way to Get Turbo Engine

Tucson Eco

Efficient Eco Still Provides Plenty of Pop

As you might expect, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson Eco delivers the greatest fuel economy in the entire Tucson lineup, but what may be a surprise to you is that it is also the most inexpensive way to get your hands on the peppy 1.6L turbocharged engine. When paired with the dual clutch 7-speed automatic, the Eco is rated at 33 mpg on the highway for the front wheel drive model and slightly less if you choose all-wheel drive. Because the Eco has fewer standard features than its siblings, it is lighter which translates into quicker times at the track. At 7.4 seconds, the Eco beats the other Tucson models by two-tenths of a second in the race to 60 mph. Feel the power of the Eco for yourself by visiting Chapman Hyundai on Bell Road.

A Little Money Buys a Lot

For about $1,450, you can upgrade from the base Tucson SE to the Eco. That not only gets you the turbocharged engine that increases your performance by about 10 horsepower, a power driver’s seat with lumbar support, LED running lights, illuminated mirrors and outside mirror turn signals. “Car and Driver” magazine editors evaluated the Eco and found a lot to like, including a spacious rear seat and a well-designed cargo space. The Tucson Eco “is well suited to the daily grind in any form, so we’ll continue to sing its praises,” the editors wrote.

Four Models Offer Wide Selection

Whether you choose the Eco, the SE, Sport or Limited trim package, the Hyundai Tucson offers a lot of value in a vehicle that’s adept at maneuvering through tight urban traffic or providing comfort on a long road trip. The SE, with a listed starting price of $22,700, comes with an automatic transmission, 5-inch touchscreen infotainment system, rearview camera, air conditioning and an adjustable steering wheel. The Sport model provides the turbocharged engine, 19-in sport wheels, hands free lift gate and proximity start. If luxury in an affordable package is more suited to your taste, chose the Limited. Along with a more upscale interior, it features heated front seats and a slew of sensor-supported driver assistance features.

Hyundai Warranty is Top-of-the-Line

All Tucson models come with the famous 5-year, 60,000 mile Hyundai Limited Warranty that includes roadside assistance. Hyundai’s also have a 7-year/100,000 mile Limited Powertrain Warranty, giving you the peace of mind of many years of driving before having to worry about major repair bills.
