The 2017 Hyundai Tucson: Get out of the House and Explore

It’s coming up on that time of the year where you can put the heavy coats away and open up the windows. Let the fresh air blow through the windows in a 2017 Hyundai Tucson as you hit the Canadian highways for a little rest and relaxation.

Open the Windows

It might be too soon for everything to warm up, but the seats in the 2017 Hyundai Tucson can keep you warm on the coldest of mornings. With standard heated seats in the front, you are ready for both cold and warm weather. You can opt for heated rear seats and ventilated front seats for you.

They are comfortable seats, as well. Depending on which model you choose, the seats are either cloth or leather. Either way, you will enjoy driving when you’re comfortably behind the wheel in a bucket seat with multiple adjustment points. The driver’s seat can be adjusted six to eight ways depending upon the model, and there are two lumbar support adjustments on the higher end models. All of these variations give you a seat that can be adjusted on the fly, and that allows for fewer pit stops along the way. Of course, the great fuel efficiency also helps keep you on the road longer.

When we say open up the window, we mean open up the window. The Tucson has a panoramic sunroof available on some of its models that span from the front seats all the way back to the rear, so everyone can enjoy a breath of fresh air or basking in summer sun rays.

Take all of Your Friends

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson has a lot of interior room for both your friends and their gear. The 60/40 split rear seat can seat three, and when upright has a cargo capacity of 877 litres. Once you lay the back seats down, you get a total of 1,754 litres of storage room. Big enough for you to fit your mountain bike in for a day hitting the trails.

The power liftgate makes getting access to your gear easy because all you have to do is have the proximity key in your pocket and get within three feet of the trunk, and up it goes. This is very handy in the event that your hands are filled with groceries or a big screen television.

Other accessories that Hyundai makes to give the Tucson even more versatility is the trailer hitch kit that gives you the power to tow a variety of accessories that require a hitch. It makes towing a small popup tent and trailer or a boat stress free. The addition of cross rails will give you the support you need to add a cargo box or other top-mounted sporting equipment like a kayak or a snowboard.

What’s New?

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson has had a couple new features added since its complete redesign in 2016. Hyundai incorporated Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration to the infotainment system.

The Tucson comes in your choice of AWD and FWD, and you can choose between a 2.0L and a 1.6L engine. Other package options include the addition of other features like heated rear seats and leather trim, as well as a larger infotainment centre or 19-inch wheels.

No matter which one of the packages you decide upon, you will agree that once you hit the road and open the windows, winter will blow far behind you. Come test drive a new 2017 Hyundai Tucson today.
