In 2014, when we found out we were having twins we immediately had to upgrade our family car. At the time I was driving a compact car, but it was enough room for my small family (at the time it was Darrick, Emma and I). When we found out our family would increase by two, we knew we had to upgrade to a full-size SUV. However, after a couple of years and it now only being the four of us, I questioned if we could downsize. Don’t get me wrong I loved my SUV, however, some days I just want to drive something a little smaller!
Last month I had a chance to drive something a little smaller than my current vehicle; the Hyundai Tucson and it was ahhhhhmazing! OMG my husband and I immediately started talking about cars and downsizing. The gas mileage alone was enough to make the decision, however, there are many other factors my family must look at when making this type of decision!
One problem with downsizing…
Even though its only 4 of us, my husband is 6’5″ and my 3-year-old is the size of a Kindergartner, so would it really be beneficial for us to downsize. I mean would everyone have enough room if we went on a road-trip? These are the questions that I have to ask when looking at different vehicles!
Well, the Hyundai Tucson surprised us!
My husband fit comfortably and had enough leg space!
My daughter and son are both in booster seats and they had enough room!
We still had enough room in the trunk for groceries or general storage space!
The Hyundai Tucson came with lots of bells and whistles, but without the hefty price tag!
I had a chance to drive the 2018 Tucson Limited AWD and the MSRP: $34,430, however, this is the top of the class in the Tucson Model.
|Starting MSRP (Front Wheel Drive)||$22,550||$23,800||$26,700||$25,150||$26,550||$29,425|
|Starting MSRP (All Wheel Drive)||$23,950||$25,200||$28,100||$26,550||$27,950||$30,825|
The features that I absolutely loved while driving the Tucson was the Advanced Safety Technology features…
