New 2016 Hyundai Tucson Priced From $22,700*

Hyundai has announced US pricing for the all-new 2016 Tucson crossover, which starts from $22,700 (excluding $895 destination). That’s a $1,050 increase compared to the previous generation 2015 Tucson’s base price.

Arriving in US dealerships later this month, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson will be available in four distinct trim levels: SE, Eco, Sport and Limited. The base SE model features the standard 164hp 2.0-liter naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the Eco model features the 175hp 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder unit matched to a new 7-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch gearbox.

The Sport trim features sporty cues and driving dynamics, while the Limited model adds leather, advanced technology and other premium features. Both engines are available in front- and all-wheel drive versions.

EPA fuel economy for the 2.0-liter engine on Eco FWD models is 26 mpg (city), 33 mpg (highway) and 29 mpg (combined) – with the combined rating accounting for a 5-mpg improvement over the former premium Tucson 2.4L engine.

Sport and Limited FWD turbo engine models are rated at 25 mpg (city), 30 mpg (highway) and 27 (combined), representing a 3-mpg improvement in combined fuel economy over the former Tucson 2.4L engine.

“The all-new Tucson hits the sweet spot of what consumers are looking for in a compact crossover with competitive pricing advantages at every trim level,” said Scott Margason, director, Product Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “For example, the Tucson SE has a MSRP advantage and averages $700 in additional content compared to its competitors in the class,” the executive added.

    Similarly priced to the Sante Fe sport. I was expecting this to be 3k cheaper on each tier than the prices they are charging. .

    • Nordschleife

      That just means a refreshed Sante Fé is going up in price. I have to admit though that the new Tuscon looks worthy of the price increase. Looks more adult and sophisticated.
