2006 Hyundai Tucson

Introduced last year as Hyundai's new entry level compact SUV, the Tucson won rave reviews from many owners for its compact size and Elantra platform that makes it easy to drive, but also its surprisingly roomy and versatile interior that can hold up to 65 cubic feet of cargo when the rear seats and front passenger seat are folded down.  The 2006 Hyundai Tucson is virtually unchanged, except that the high-end LX trim is now called the Limited.

Available as a base GL, GLS, or Limited, the 2006 Tucson comes as either a front-wheel or all-wheel drive SUV.  While the GL is stuck with a 2.0-liter, 140-hp I4 and choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed shiftable automatic, the GLS and Limited get the 2.7-liter, 173-hp V6 and 4-speed.  All sit on 16-inch wheels and come standard with ABS brakes, traction and stability control, and six airbags.  The GLS and Limited also feature a tire pressure monitor.  The base is well equipped with power features, cruise control, remote entry, and a CD player, and as you move through the lineup you add foglights, leather trim, heated leather seats, and a CD changer.  A sunroof is optional.  

The 2006 Tucson is noted for its 5-star safety ratings and its bargain sticker price.  Drivers say it's a great value for the money because it comes with so many features that easily compete with or even beat what you find in the CR-V and Ford Escape, its closest competitors.  Its safety features also outshine most compact SUVs.  Though both engines are a bit underpowered and no one likes the 20/26 fuel economy, owners are more than satisfied with the cargo room, ride comfort, and interior layout.  Some wish the plastic material was a bit more durable.
