The Hyundai Tucson was a strong package years ago already;

when it launched in 2004, it boasted a class-leading warranty,

ABS, stability control, and six airbags as standard features.

Subsequent Hyundai Tucson generations kept up the high standard but lost the

V6 engine that was initially available, with four-cylinder engines -

later with turbocharging - becoming the mainstay power units.
