Question 2017 Tuscon

Hi all!

I am looking at the 2017 Tuscon and I am a little confused by the 2 engine sizes. Some have a 2.0 and others have a 1.6 turbo. The Turbo's seem to have a little higher horsepower and better gas mileage.
I am going for a test drive Friday. I have already driven the Sport. They just got in an SE Plus but it has the 2.0 - can anyone give me a heads up on what differences to expect?

I think the main difference is HP.
I test drove both engines and instantly wanted the 1.6T.
It was a no brained.
I ended buying a 2017 2wd Sport 1.6T.

Good luck

Thank you Guitargeak99 for your response. I was leaning that way, I was just curious if you could actually 'feel' the difference. I guess I will drive them both before I commit.

That's what it all boils down to - just give each model a thorough test drive and make your decision.
We test drove the Honda CRv and the Toyota Rav4 - they were both nice, but we just didn't like that neither had much flexibility on interior options. My wife pointed out the Hyundai dealership on the way home and I said no way am I buying a Hyundai. Well, here I am. The Tucson just smoked them. Very nimble and quick reacting - it's actually fun to drive. We didn't want leather interior (been there done that) and we didn't need AWD. But, I knew the 1.6T was the way to go and it gets good mileage.
The only thing that was not available on the Sport model is the auto dimming/home link rear view mirror - which I'm having the dealer install.

I agree. I have also driven the CRV and the RAV4 The Honda was too plain and not styled at all on the exterior. The RAV4 did not impress me at all with the fake leather two toned interior...
So I have narrowed things down to the Tucson. I have had excellent experiences with other Hyundai models over the years and I am hoping you will enjoy yours!
