Sticking with the same geographic nomenclature that tried to trick drivers into thinking the Sante Fe could actually be taken off macadam, Hyundai is introducing a small SUV called the Tuscon. Due to challenge the Toyota RAV 4 and Honda CR-V in September, it shares a platform with the Elantra sedan. Three trim levels will be available, with the two higher models getting a 173 hp V6 as well as standard AWD. The 140 hp four cylinder GL model will start at about $17,000, with a fully-kitted LX hovering around $20,000. While the Tuscon's hard numbers seem to measure up to the other segment-leading cute-utes, the first drive impressions are a bit lackluster, describing the driving experience as "average" and the build quality as "inoffensive."
