The first-generation Tucson was produced from 2005-2009. Every first-generation Hyundai Tucson had antilock brakes, stability control, front seat-mounted side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags.
The base GL was powered by a 140-horsepower, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine mated to either a five-speed manual (mandatory on AWD models) or a four-speed automatic transmission. The top-shelf Limited model boasted items such as a sunroof, leather seats, automatic climate control and an upgraded audio system. In reviews, we praised the first-generation Tucson for its roomy interior and generous list of standard comfort and safety features.
