Introduction
The 2014 Hyundai Tucson is a compact crossover SUV that is sized a little smaller than models such as the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, and Toyota RAV4, but is larger than models such as the Nissan Juke and Subaru XV Crosstrek. For the 2014 model year, the Tucson receives numerous updates, highlights of which are listed above.

Models and Features
Hyundai offers the 2014 Tucson in GLS, SE, and Limited trim levels, each available with an optional all-wheel-drive (AWD) system.

Upgrade to the Tucson SE trim level for a larger and more powerful, but less fuel-efficient, engine. The SE also includes 17-in. aluminum wheels, fog lights, automatic headlights, roof rack side rails, and more upscale styling details. The Tucson SE also features an 8-way power driver's seat with lumbar support, a 4.3-in. touch-screen audio system, heated front seats, heated side mirrors, and air vents for the rear-seat passengers. The visor vanity mirrors and the glove box are illuminated in this version, and occupants sit on cloth seats with leatherette seat bolsters.

Choose the Tucson Limited for larger 18-in. aluminum wheels, chrome exterior detailing, windshield wiper de-icer system, and turn signal indicators embedded into the outside mirror caps. Inside, the Limited's seats, steering wheel, and shift knob are wrapped in leather, and this version of the Tucson includes dual-zone automatic climate control with a CleanAir ionizer system, Proximity Key passive entry system with push-button starting, auto-dimming rearview mirror, cargo cover, and a universal garage door opener. The Tucson Limited is also equipped with Hyundai's Blue Link telematics technology.

Options and Packages
Aside from AWD and dealer-installed accessories, there are no options offered for the Tucson GLS and SE trim levels. The Tucson Limited, however, can be equipped with a Tech package containing a navigation system with real-time traffic reports and a larger 7-inch touch-screen display, panoramic sunroof, premium sound system, and LED taillights.

Under the Hood
This year, Hyundai adds direct fuel injection to the GLS trim level's standard 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine, and for the SE and Limited elects to add the same 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine that the company uses in the larger Santa Fe Sport.

In the Tucson GLS, the 2.0-liter engine makes 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque, and Hyundai now offers AWD as an option with this power plant. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard equipment.

In the Tucson SE and Limited, the larger 2.4-liter engine produces 182 horsepower and 177 lb.-ft. of torque. That's more motive force than what most of the Tucson's competitors provide. This engine also comes with a standard 6-speed automatic transmission, and AWD is optional.

Fuel Economy
Depending on the trim level selected, and whether or not the Tucson is equipped with AWD, this small crossover SUV is rated by the EPA to return anywhere from 20 mpg in the city to 29 mpg on the highway.

Safety Ratings and Technology
In crash tests performed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) the 2014 Tucson earns an overall rating of 4 stars (out of 5 stars). Note, however, that the SUV gets either a 5-star or a 4-star rating in every assessment.

In testing conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2014 Tucson receives the highest rating of \"Good\" in four out of five evaluations--moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats. In the fifth evaluation--the small overlap frontal-impact test--the Tucson is rated \"Poor\" by the IIHS.
