1. What is it?
The Canadian automotive market is a small-time global player, being smaller in population than California. With limited resources and development costs available for Canadian specific trim and content packages, it is no surprise that the manual transmission Tucson that Hyundai offers in Canada comes in a single trim.
Called the GL, this Tucson is positioned below the GLS in Canada. Compared to the American GLS trim, the Canadian Tucson GL is missing body colored side mirrors, rear privacy glass, body colored door handles, XM satellite radio and alloy wheels. The latter is replaced by steel wheels wearing the same 225/60R17 tires as the GLS.
