The car-based Tucson sport utility vehicle has safe handling, a good ride and a very roomy, comfortable interior, plus it’s tough enough to make it out on a rutted road to a summer camping trip, especially when equipped with the optional all-wheel drive. Electronic stability control, side-curtain airbags, and front seat-mounted side airbags are all standard.
