Redesigned for 2010, the Tucson midsize crossover features a European design that will remain fresh in the coming years. The athletic design of this used car was also paired with chassis changes to improve handling, body roll control and steering responsiveness.

While it is slightly longer than the Honda CR-V, which improves its cargo space, it has a smaller turning circle, making it easier to park.

The 176-horsepower 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine in the 2010 Hyundai Tucson has the same power and acceleration as the previous generation's V-6 but with 20 percent better fuel economy than the four-cylinder engine used in the prior model. When equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission, it gets 23 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, making it more fuel-efficient than the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue and Toyota RAV4. All-wheel-drive models are rated at 21 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

The 2010 Tucson has a lower overall height than the previous model. There is also improved legroom in the front and rear, and improved headroom for rear-seat passengers.
