2017 Hyundai Tucson Golden CO

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson in Golden CO and 2017 Ford Escape have much to offer to you as a driver, notably similar horsepower and torque output along with enough cargo volume to store all your valuables. This makes them worthy competitors with each other, setting standards for all other crossovers to strive for. However, there are some key benefits that the 2017 Hyundai Tucson provides that far exceed that of the Escape. Starting with its exterior, the 2017 Tucson provides a much more streamlined, classy and aerodynamic aura than many, as well as an automatic power liftgate and finely-tuned suspension to complement its 7-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch Transmission. Overall, the 2017 Tucson has earned a 5-star NHTSA safety rating on the back of its extensive list of safety features, many of which the 2017 Escape cannot duplicate. Some of these include:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking
  • Lane Change Assist
  • Blind Spot Detection
  • Hill-Start Assist Control
  • Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Many more!
