Full-time four-wheel drive that apportions power to the wheels when needed is found in the 2006 Hyundai Tucson Limited 4WD, the top end trim for this compact, yet roomy SUV. Normally engaged in the front wheels, the 4WD system can engage 50/50 according to the road conditions, and can be manually set as well. It comes with a locking center differential, but it is not an offroad vehicle, however. 4-wheel disc and ABS brakes, electronic brakeforce, traction and stability control, a tire monitor for the 16-inch wheels and all-season tires, and six airbags (dual front, side, and side curtain) are all standard. Power sits in a 173-hp, 2.7-liter DOHC V6 and 4-speed auto tran with manual mode.
Passengers have plenty of leg and headroom in the 2006 Tucson Limited 4WD, and both rows recline. Rear seats split-fold 60/40 into the floor, along with a folding front passenger seat. The small cargo area expands to 65 cubic feet, and there is also a standard roof rack. Leather seats, automatic climate control, a CD-changer/MP3 player, temperature display, and auto-dimming rearview mirror are the upgrades from the cruise control, power features, intermittent front and rear wipers, leather trim, and keyless entry in the GLS. Privacy glass, storage consoles, a tilt steering wheel, and reading lights are other conveniences. A sunroof is optional. While owners wish for better fuel economy and a power driver's seat, they love the style, value, abundance of features, and safety record (five stars) of the 2006 Tucson Limited 4WD.
