Hyundai's lineup of SUVs consists of three car-based crossover vehicles. These are strictly on-road vehicles, designed as people-haulers and commuters rather than heavy-duty work trucks or off-roaders. Every Hyundai gets a 5-year/60,000-mile basic warranty and a 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.

Tucson

Tucson debuted in the United States as a 2005 model, and received a makeover for 2010. 2016 brings the third generation Tucson, with revised exterior and interior design, a new powertrain and even a fuel cell version (based on the second generation vehicle).

Gasoline engines include a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder (SE) and a 1.6-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder (Eco, Sport and Limited), with front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Tucson rides on a 105.1" wheelbase, with a total length of 176.2", width of 72.8", and a height of 64.8 – 65.0", with a curb weight of 3,325 - 3,710 lbs.. Luggage space behind the second row is 31.0 cubic feet, and cargo space with the second row folded flat is 61.9 cubic feet. The Hyundai Tucson will arrive with base prices from $22,700 to $31,300 and EPA fuel economy estimates from 21 mpg city/26 mpg highway to 25 city/31 highway. The Tucson Fuel Cell Vehicle is available only on a lease basis at $499/month.

Santa Fe Sport (formerly Santa Fe)

Santa Fe debuted in the US as a 2001 model, and received a makeover in 2007, with another reworking as a two-row crossover for the 2012 model year and a rebadging as “Santa Fe Sport.” Two powertrains are available: a 2.4-liter 4-cylinder (190 hp/181 lb-ft of torque) or a 2.0-liter turbo (265 hp/269 lb-ft of torque).

Santa Fe rides on a 106.3" wheelbase, with a total length of 184.6", width of 74.0", and a height of 66.1 – 66.5" with a curb weight of 3,459 – 3,706 lbs.. There's 35.4 cubic feet of space behind the second row; and 71.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the second row folded flat. The Hyundai Santa Fe carries base prices from $24,950 to $33,000 and EPA fuel economy estimates from 18 mpg city/24 mpg highway to 20 city/27 highway.

Santa Fe (formerly Veracruz)

Santa Fe is the three-row crossover that debuted as “Veracruz” in the US as a 2007 model. In 2012, the Veracruz name was dropped, and the Santa Fe was born – or rather, reborn. For 2016, two trim levels are available: the base SE and the loaded Limited. There is one engine available, a 3.3-liter direct-injected V6 tuned to produce 290 hp and 252 lb-ft of torque. There's just one transmission choice, a 6-speed automatic with a manual shift mode. Both trim levels come with front-wheel drive or optional all-wheel drive. Veracruz rides on a 110.2" wheelbase, with a total length of 193.1", width of 74.2", and a height of 66.5 – 66.9", with a curb weight of 3,933 - 4,085 lbs. Luggage space behind the third row is 13.5 cubic feet; behind the second row there's 40.9 cubic feet, and with both second and third rows folded down, there's room for 80.0 cubic feet of cargo. The Hyundai Santa Fe carries base prices from $30,400 to $36,250 and EPA fuel economy estimates from 17 mpg city/22 mpg highway (AWD) to 18 city/25 highway (FWD).
