The Hyundai Tucson is one of the most popular crossovers on the market. In 2016, it will also be one of the most affordable.
2016 Hyundai Tucson
According to a press release from Hyundai, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson pricing will start at $22,700. That price makes it one of the most affordable SUVs available.
Decked out with the latest and greatest technologies for both entertainment and safety, the 2016 Tucson is the perfect vehicle for any journey.
This crossover is available for purchase at four different trim levels, each with their own level of luxury: the SE, the Eco, the Sport, and the Limited.
“The all-new Tucson hits the sweet spot of what consumers are looking for in a compact crossover with competitive pricing advantages at every trim level,” said Scott Margason, director of Product Planning at Hyundai Motor America, in the press release.
By how popular the model is here at Gossett Hyundai, we can see just how many sweet spots the Tucson hits.
Hyundai is an automaker always ahead of the competition when it comes to technology. It comes as no surprise that Hyundai is the first and only automaker to feature Android Auto on its vehicles. Where can you obtain such a piece of technology? Right from the comfort of your home computer!
According to a Hyundai Press Release, the Android Auto software can be downloaded for free at MyHyundai.com. The technology is available to 2015 Hyundai Sonata owners currently, with an expansion to more vehicles of the Hyundai fleet on the way.
It’s a simple process. All you need is a MyHyundai account and internet access. The software can be downloaded here.
However, for those who are more comfortable with others uploading the software, the process can be completed at Hyundai dealerships nationwide.
“This is the first time we’ve made a software upgrade available using the MyHyundai portal,” said Michael Deitz, senior group manager of Connected Care at Hyundai Motor America, in the news release. “Sonata owners can add more value with Android Auto in an easy-to-do upgrade that takes less than an hour.”

Current Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell
Despite limited refueling infrastructure and low sales of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles, Hyundai says that hydrogen fuel cell technology is the future of eco-friendly cars. According to todayonline.com, despite Hyundai only selling 273 Tucson fuel cell SUVs since production kicked off in 2013 (and mostly to California and Europe), Mr. Kim Sae Hoon, general manager at Hyundai’s fuel cell engineering design team, points out that the benefits of fuel cell technology are just too numerous to call it quits.
Hoon says that not only is the market for FCVs less competitive than the electric car market (with fewer entries into the segment), but the technology is also more practical. FCVs offer more flexibility to designers, and can be applied to nearly every type of vehicle, from small roadsters to large buses. Additionally, fuel cell technology allows drivers to refuel quickly, offers extended driving ranges, and emits nothing but water vapor.
Hyundai predicts it will take another ten years before prices drop, an accessible refueling infrastructure is established, and wider consumer adoption will begin to take hold. In the meantime, the automaker is committed to continuing its research and development of the technology, in hopes that we will see wider acceptance of the future of eco-friendly driving in the coming years.
