    2016 Hyundai Tucson Eco - $25,045 to start incl. the $895 D&H charge offers owners a 26/33 mpgUS city/highway rating.

    Let me see… A Top Safety Pick+ rating by the IIHS, perfect 5-star crash test rating from the NHTSA, one of the best efficiency labels in the segment, segment leading infotainment, tilting 60/40 rear seat backs, 31.0 cu. ft. of cargo volume with the rear seats up, rigid chassis with over 50 percent high strength steel, lower NVH and better road feel. And that is just the 10,000 ft. view. ;)

    Later this year, Hyundai Motor will be releasing its IONIQ, the world’s first platform with three alternative powertrains: hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and battery electric in Canada and the U.S.
