2010 Hyundai Tucson Overview

The 2010 Hyundai Tucson is a top choice among 2010 used compact SUVs. The completely redesigned 2010 Hyundai Tucson improves on the previous model in terms of styling and performance. When it was new, reviewers praised the Tucson’s revamped four-cylinder engine for its increased power. In addition, the improved engine gets excellent fuel economy at up to 31 mpg highway, and has available all-wheel drive. Though the Tucson is fun to drive, some test drivers complained about the electronic power steering, noting that it felt artificial.

For 2010, Hyundai made strides to improve the Tucson’s cabin and reviewers said they succeeded for the most part. Most critics said that the quality of the materials was outstanding for the price when it was new, but some found hard plastics in undesirable areas, like the center console. Still, test drivers said that the Tucson’s cabin was comfortable and spacious with ample head- and legroom in both front and rear seats. However, the Tucson’s 55.8 cubic feet of maximum cargo space is a bit less than what you’ll find in rivals like the 2010 Honda CR-V and 2010 Nissan Rogue.

The base Tucson GLS comes with keyless entry, satellite radio and a USB port. Features like cruise control, Bluetooth, navigation, a backup camera and an upgraded stereo were available in packages or as standalone options when the Tucson was new.

Other Cars to Consider

The 2010 Toyota RAV4 offers good performance and strong safety scores, making it a top used compact SUV to consider. Though some reviewers found the back seat in the RAV4 a bit cramped, it has an available third-row seat to carry more passengers, and has more cargo space than the Tucson.

If you want an SUV that’s fun to drive, consider the 2010 Mazda CX-7. Reviewers loved the CX-7’s performance when it was new, especially when equipped with the available turbocharged four-cylinder engine. Just note that while the CX-7 is more enjoyable behind the wheel, its safety ratings are lower than the Tucson’s.
