Trim Levels, Powertrain, and Fuel Efficiency

The 2024 Tucson gives you four trim choices: SE, SEL, XRT, and Limited. They’re all set up with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 187 hp and 178 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. While front-wheel drive is standard, you have the option of upgrading to all-wheel drive. In terms of fuel economy, the FWD models return an impressive EPA-estimated 25 mpg in the city and 32 mpg on the highway, while the AWD versions achieve 23 city/29 highway. The Tucson can tow as much as 2,000 pounds of combined trailer/contents weight.

Standard Features and Options

The SE comes with plenty of desirable amenities, especially for a base trim. The list includes remote keyless entry, automatic LED headlights, two front USB ports, a 60/40-split rear seatback with a folding center armrest and cupholders, and a dual-level cargo floor. The SEL is improved with Digital Key, heated front seats with power adjustability for the driver, heated side mirrors, roof rails, a hands-free liftgate, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluelink connected car services, a wireless phone charge pad, and two additional USB ports in the second row. The Convenience Package offered for this trim will add a significant amount of stuff: a sunroof, exterior mirrors with built-in turn-signal indicators, H-Tex (simulated leather) upholstery, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, a 10.25-inch digital gauge cluster, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 64-color ambient interior lighting system, and various infotainment upgrades, which you can learn more about in the last section.

The XRT gets the contents of the SEL Convenience Package as standard features, and its look is distinguished by a more aggressively sculpted exterior with black accents and a black interior. The Limited goes back to the conventional ’24 Tucson style and also gets the same features as the SEL with the Convenience Package, without the leather-wrapped shift knob. This top-level trim also has a panoramic sunroof, projector-type LED headlights, rain-sensing wipers, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel with paddle shifters, a HomeLink universal home remote, and an upgraded ambient interior lighting system. Its front seats are ventilated and otherwise upgraded with passenger-side power adjustability and driver’s position memory; the second-row seats are heated.

Advanced Safety Technology

Every Tucson trim comes equipped with Hyundai’s comprehensive SmartSense safety suite, which includes forward collision-avoidance assist (with pedestrian, cyclist, and junction turning detection), blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, driver attention warning, lane keeping assist, lane following assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go, safe exit warning, and rear occupant alert. The SEL with the Convenience Package, will get an enhanced rear occupant alert system.
The Limited is loaded with a real-time blind-spot view monitor, navigation-based adaptive cruise control with highway driving assist, front and rear parking sensors, reverse parking collision-avoidance assist, Remote Smart Parking Assist, and a 360-degree camera.


The SE features the base infotainment array, an 8-inch touchscreen system incorporating wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, HD radio, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, and a multi-speaker audio system. The SEL introduces SiriusXM satellite radio, and if you order the Convenience Package, you’ll get a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation and dynamic voice recognition (this upgraded system is incompatible with wireless smartphone connect, though, meaning that you’ll have to plug in manually to use Android Auto and Apple CarPlay). The XRT and Limited are set up with the same features as the fully optioned version of the SEL, but only the Limited gets a top-notch Bose audio system.
