A small crossover SUV, the Tucson is Hyundai’s solution for the driver who wants a compact SUV. Starting at around $19,000, the Tucson is an attractive choice. However, when purchasing a car, you have to take into account the associated costs of owning it. What will fuel cost you per gallon? What will it take to insure your car? If you want to learn how to save on your Hyundai Tucson insurance, read on.
The average Tucson owner paid around $1,000 annually for insurance. However, bear in mind that rates are going to vary from driver to driver, and even insurer to insurer. There’s a variety of factors that insurers use to judge your riskiness when quoting your premium. The first thing they’ll look at is your driving record; if you’re a safe driver, you’ll obviously see lower rates.
If you’re under 25, male, and own a sports car, you’ll probably have the highest rates of anyone in any demographic. However, on the flip side of that coin, if you’re married and own a home, you’ll likely see lower rates. Insurance companies use those as measures of responsibility.
As always, shop around car insurance. Get quotes from different companies and ensure that you’re getting the best deal possible.
While the Tucson isn’t exactly ideal as a family vehicle, it certainly makes a good crossover for people looking to have a little extra space. Its interior space leaves it wanting somewhat. Its strengths lie in its unique styling and its fun-to-drive factor.
It comes in three trims: the GL, GLS, and Limited. All Tucsons come standard with keyless entry, air conditioning, power accessories, and a six-speaker audio system among other features. The base level comes equipped with a 2.0 liter 4 cylinder engine, though you can upgrade to something with a little more kick with the optional 2.4 liter engine.
As you go up in trim levels, you’ll see more options available to you. The GLS, for example, will net you roof rails, upgraded suspension, and steering wheel controls. If you upgrade to the top trim level, the Limited, you’ll get such features as: automatic climate control, fog lamps, and leather seating. You can further customize your Tucson by getting the premium package (Only available on Limited Trim level) and net yourself the following features:
• Touchscreen GPS System
• Premium Audio System
• Rearview Camera
The type of car you drive can also help depending on the safety features it has and the ratings it’s gotten. The 2012 Tucson hasn’t been tested by the NHTSA or the IIHS yet, but the 2011 received a top safety pick from the IIHS. It received a good score in all of their crash tests.
