Hyundai has been getting a lot of attention lately for its introduction of a new generation of more refined, sophisticated vehicles, of which the 2011 Hyundai Tucson is a good example. After its redesign last year, the Tucson compact crossover continues to impress Charlotte Hyundai customers.
Notably, this isn’t simply because of traditional Hyundai strengths like value, affordability and overall quality. These qualities still define the Tucson, yet the crossover SUV’s sleek styling, abundant features and fun-to-drive nature are what set it apart from its competition for Matthews Hyundai fans. All this makes the 2011 Hyundai Tucson one of Keffer Hyundai‘s top picks for a small crossover SUV.
As one of the leading Lake Norman Hyundai dealerships, Keffer Hyundai is devoted to offering you the most helpful and hassle-free customer service in the greater NC area.

The 2011 Hyundai Tucson is a five-passenger compact crossover SUV that is offered at our Charlotte Hyundai dealer in three trim levels: GL, GLS and Limited.
The GL gives Lake Norman Hyundai shoppers 17-inch steel wheels, a hill-holder feature, hill-descent control, a trip computer, air-conditioning, full power accessories, keyless entry, a tilt steering wheel, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver seat and a six-speaker stereo with CD player, satellite radio, auxiliary audio jack and a USB port.
The 2011 Hyundai Tucson GL also comes standard with a 2.0-liter inline-4 engine that produces 165 horsepower and 146 pound-feet of torque. The GL comes standard with a five-speed manual transmission and a six-speed automatic is available. Only front-wheel drive is available for the GL.
Stepping up to the GLS and Limited models will get Charlotte Hyundai buyers a 2.4-liter inline-4 that makes 176 hp and 168 lb-ft of torque. In California-emissions states, this engine receives partial zero-emissions-vehicle (PZEV) status and produces 170 hp and 163 lb-ft of torque.
Standard safety equipment for the 2011 Hyundai Tucson includes antilock disc brakes (with brake assist), stability and traction control, active front headrests, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, hill holder and hill descent control, all which give Lake Norman Hyundai drivers peace of mind.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has named the Tucson one of its Top Safety Picks, awarding this Hyundai its top rating “Good” for frontal offset and side impact protection as well as roof strength tests. The Tucson comes to a stop from 60 mph in 123 feet.
The 2011 Hyundai Tucson offers a contoured twin-cowl dash that’s available in two-tone color schemes. It’s quite a bit more appealing than the plain, truck-style treatments seen in the competition, and more functional to boot. The controls are simple, including those for the optional touchscreen navigation system.
