The 2010 Tucson is a sleek crossover that improves on its predecessor with its athletic European design, roomy cabin with extra cargo space, and significant improvements in fuel economy and technology. The Tucson also features the company's "Fluidic Sculpture" design language and is the first vehicle in Hyundai's 24/7 version 2.0 product initiative (seven new models in the next 24 months).

True to Hyundai form, the Tucson applies life-saving safety technologies as standard equipment while offering, for the first time, side curtain airbags with rollover sensors. The new Tucson also offers touch-screen navigation, Hyundai's first panoramic sunroof and a Bluetooth® hands-free phone system.
