4. What Would it Cost?
Canadian and American trim packages do not match-up for most manufacturers and Hyundai is no exception. In Canada the Tucson can be had in GL, GLS and Limited. In the USA, the Tucson is available as a GLS, SE and Limited. Although the two Limited trims are similar in content, the GLS trims are not. The Canadian GLS trim comes equipped with the larger 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and slots in price/content wise between the American GLS and SE trims.
With trims not matching each other from one country to another, it is hard to make a direct price comparison. In Canada the base GL garners a price of $21,499 before destination charges which is $2,250 cheaper than the automatic GL and $5,400 less than the automatic GLS. If such a vehicle as the manual-transmission Tucson GL were offered in the USA, we’d expect a starting price below $20,000 before destination charges.
