2016 Hyundai Tucson First Drive /w Video


Compact crossovers are hot-ticket items; American motorists just canít get enough of these elevated hatchbacks. To cash in on this vehicular bonanza, the folks at Hyundai have totally redesigned the Tucson for 2016.

Undoubtedly, Hyundai wants this car-based utility vehicle to make a big splash. But will it sink or swim? Can it keep this brandís sales afloat? To find out, the company invited us to an appropriate place, Minneapolis. Itís true that Minnesota is the Land of 10,000 Lakes, though perhaps its nickname should really be the Hyperbole State. As a native Michigander, I donít need any lectures about water, after all, weíre the GREAT LAKES STATE, so shut your trap, Minnesota!
Growing Gains

Compared to its predecessor, the Tucson has grown slightly for 2016. Redesigned vehicles, like repeat buyers, tend to get larger every go around, and this crossover continues the trend.

This Hyundai is built around a new architecture thatís comprised of more than 50 percent high-strength steel, a material that helps increase strength without adding tons of extra mass. Accordingly, the new Tucson is about one inch wider, three inches lankier and rides on a wheelbase thatís been stretched 1.2 inches. These subtle-but-significant increases have resulted in a good bit more interior space.
