The base model for the new compact SUV offering from Hyundai is the 2005 Tucson GL 2WD, a front-wheel drive sport utility vehicle powered by a 2.0-liter, 140-hp DOHC I4 with 136 lb-ft of torque and a choice of 5-speed manual or 4-speed shiftable automatic. Five-star front and side impact crash ratings are earned by dual front, front-side, and side curtain airbags, 4-wheel ABS brakes, 16-inch alloy wheels, and traction and stability control.
For an affordable price, the 2005 Hyundai Tucson GL features a full power setup, wheel-mounted cruise control, a CD player, intermittent front and rear wipers, remote entry, heated mirrors, a tachometer, air conditioning, tilt steering wheel, and a security system. Rear seats 60/40 split-fold flat for up to 65 cubic feet of cargo space, and the cargo area features tie-downs and a cover, and an interior rack system can be added. A roof rack is also standard. A sunroof is optional. Though drivers are disappointed with the decent 22/27 gas mileage, highway road noise, and an underpowered I4, they love the cargo space and versatility, the reclining rear seats, the long list of standard features, and the easy handling of the 2005 Tucson GL.
