2023 Hyundai Tucson: Overview


Whether you’re a single person whose week isn’t complete without an outdoorsy excursion or a busy family who needs room for soccer gear, backpacks, and grocery bags, a small but sporty SUV could be a practical option. Hyundai’s Tucson is a dependable compact SUV for anyone who wants a stylish and smart vehicle that’s just as capable of handling rugged terrain as it is the drive to the office. If you’re curious about the 2023 Hyundai Tucson, read on for Huffines Hyundai McKinney’s breakdown of this year’s edition of the beloved SUV.

2023 Hyundai Tucson Trim Levels

The Tucson is Hyundai’s iconic compact SUV built for weekend trips, sporty adventures, and the daily commutes in between. There are five distinct trim levels available, ranging from practical and affordable to indulgent and luxurious. These various configurations of the Hyundai Tucson allow for customization, so you can choose a Tucson that suits your needs, budget, and preferences. The five trims are:

  • SE, starting at $26,700 MSRP.
  • SEL, starting at $28,300 MSRP.
  • XRT, starting at $33,525 MSRP.
  • N-Line, starting at $33,575 MSRP.
  • Limited, starting at $35,960 MSRP.

2023 Hyundai Tucson Exterior

This year’s edition is pretty recognizable to fans of the beloved SUV’s 2022 redesign. The 2023 Hyundai Tucson’s exterior is close to identical to the new version the automaker unveiled last year. It features a chiseled body with plenty of interesting angles and a front grille that’s equal parts friendly and commanding. The SE and SEL trims come with 17-inch wheels, while the three top trims size up to 19-inch wheels. Standard exterior features include LED headlights, daytime running lights, and front turn signals. Features also include a roof-mounted center lamp, body-color mirrors, and solar control glass.

Higher trims swap the body-color mirrors for sleek black mirrors with heating and turn signal indicators. Glossy pillars, rear privacy glass, and roof rails come standard on SEL and XRT models. The N-Line edition comes with its own unique styling, including a special grille, twin-tip exhaust, and rear spoiler. The Limited, Tucson’s elegant top trim, comes with subtle attention-grabbing touches, like a panoramic sunroof, chrome accent grille, and body-color mirrors with chrome detailing.

Paint color availabilities vary depending on the trim, but configurations of the 2023 Hyundai Tucson are available in the following exterior paint colors:

  • Amazon Gray.
  • Calypso Red.
  • Phantom Black.
  • Deep Sea 
  • Intense Blue.
  • Portofino Gray.
  • Shimmering Silver.
  • Serenity White Pearl.

2023 Hyundai Tucson Interior

The 2023 Hyundai Tucson’s interior is practical, clean, and a touch futuristic, with sharp lines and premium materials. The base trim on the Tucson comes with cloth seats for five and 60/40 split fold-down rear seats. While the cabin of the lower trims is relatively simple, higher trim levels add comforts like heated front seats, H-trimmed seats, leather-trimmed steering wheel and knob, USB ports, wireless charging, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.

The top trim, the Limited, boasts upscale details inside, too. Standard interior features on the Limited include heated rear seats, an expanded edition of Hyundai’s 64-color interior ambient lighting, LED interior lights, and rain-sensing windshield wipers.

The ideal weekend getaway vehicle, the Hyundai Tucson, is spacious enough to accommodate the whole family, perhaps a few friends or a furry friend, and a few days’ worth of suitcases and outdoorsy gear. A dual-level cargo floor is standard on all trim levels to make room for extra baggage. The Tucson offers 41.2 cubic feet of cargo space with the rear seats upright, and once you fold them down, the capacity rises to an impressive 80.3 cubic feet. There’s plenty of space for passengers, too, with 108.2 cubic feet of passenger volume and 41.3 inches of legroom.

2023 Hyundai Tucson Engine and Performance

The standard engine on the 2023 Tucson is a 2.5-liter inline four-cylinder paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. This peppy engine equips the SUV with 187 horsepower and 168 pound-feet of torque. Both front-wheel and all-wheel drive are available with the base engine. For a little extra power and a lower gas bill, you could opt for a 1.6-liter four-cylinder hybrid engine, which delivers 226 horsepower. The Tucson’s handling is perky and responsive, and it’s quiet on the road, offering a peaceful commute or a backseat nap during road trips.

When equipped with front-wheel drive, the 2023 Tucson offers 25 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined. All-wheel drive models get 23 mpg in the city, 28 mpg on the highway, and 25 mpg combined. On all trims, the fuel tank has a capacity of 14.3 gallons.

2023 Hyundai Tucson Infotainment

The vehicle’s base trim comes equipped with an 8-inch touch screen for infotainment so you can load up your favorite music and podcasts, access your must-have apps, and communicate safely while on the go. On all trims above the SEL, the screen is 10.25 inches for an even better onboard experience. Android Auto and Apple CarPlay come with every Tucson model, either wireless or standard, allowing you to connect your mobile device to your car seamlessly. 

Tech and entertainment features only get more functional and futuristic with each trim level upgrade. Mid-level trims like the XRT and N-Line offer extras like onboard navigation and traffic updates, voice recognition, and a Bose audio system.
