The 2017 Hyundai Tucson has been named Best Compact SUV for the Money by U.S. News & World Report as well as MotorWeek’s 2016 Drivers’ Choice Award for Best Small Utility. The award-winning Tucson out maneuvers the competition in several important areas such as dual clutch automatic transmission, advanced seating, and automatic emergency braking system with pedestrian detection.
Dual Clutch Automatic Transmission
First up, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson offers a 7-speed Dual Clutch Automatic Transmission providing the smoothest most efficient shift at the precise moment it’s needed. And Tucson is the only vehicle in its class to offer it.
Next up is seating, Tucson offers several seating features to add to your comfort that other similar vehicles do not, like available ventilated front seats and available heated rear seats. Also, the standard beige cloth interior is covered with YES Essentials® stain- and odor-resistant fabric.
Automatic Emergency Braking System with Pedestrian Detection
Having an advanced braking system is essential to a safe journey and Tucson’s available Automatic Emergency Braking System with Pedestrian Detection does just that. If it determines that a collision is imminent and the driver does not react, the system deploys Automatic Emergency Braking. When a vehicle is detected, the system can apply full brake-force stopping power from 5 to 50 mph. When a pedestrian is detected, full stopping power is automatically applied from 5 to 43 mph.
In addition, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson offers a long list of standard features that includes a 5-inch touchscreen audio system with 6 speakers, smart phone and auxiliary inputs and a rearview camera. There are also power windows, door locks, mirrors, and standard 17-inch alloy wheels.
