2018 Hyundai Tucson Golden CO

The new 2018 Hyundai Tucson is a carryover model, but that doesn't mean there haven't been improvements made throughout. Most of the changes you'll find are within the trim levels of the Tucson.

For example, the Tucson Value trim (which replaced the Sport trim in 2017) will remain available in 2018 models and will feature a hands-free liftgate with auto-open, a panoramic sunroof, dual automatic temperature control with a CleanAir Ionizer, Proximity Key with push-button start and more.

Additionally, a new SEL trim level will be available and will feature the previously-available SE Popular Equipment Package (seven-inch display audio touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto® compatibility).

The Eco and Night trim levels that were previously available on 2017 Hyundai Tucson models are no longer available.
