Use The Versatile, Fuel-Efficient Hyundai Tucson for Ridesharing

With the growing popularity of independent gig-style work, people are discovering a better way to make extra money. The demand for gig-friendly vehicles is higher than ever, ultimately increasing the need for a quality, affordable, and efficient subcompact or compact vehicle.

Naturally, people assume they need to buy a bigger vehicle than they actually do, which causes many compact SUVs and crossovers like the Tucson to be overlooked. The Hyundai Tucson was born as a response to consumers’ hoping for a slightly smaller vehicle than the popular Santa Fe model.

Today, the Tucson offers plenty of space in a small package, making it a good choice for gigs like rideshare driving and independent contractor delivery services.

Enjoy a Stylish, Durable Interior

The affordable Tucson looks anything but cheap, with high-quality cloth interiors and available upgrades for a more luxurious look or a sporty finish. Various trims are available, but all offer a sleek, modern finish that looks far more expensive than it actually is. Height-adjustable front seats are comfortably padded for support, while the 60/40 back bench seat provides comfortable room for up to three passengers.

The cargo area is spacious even with the seats in place. However, the back seats fold completely down with one quick pull, giving you plenty of added space to carry all kinds of cargo, from packages to small furniture and more. The Tucson also features a folding front passenger seat, expanding your cargo area even further, making this compact SUV a great choice for Amazon contracting and similar delivery gigs.

The materials used in construction are durable and designed to stand the test of time, no matter how much you use your Tucson. The cargo area includes a plastic/rubber composite floor mat for extra protection, and the rear window is able to be opened independently, making loading and unloading even more convenient.

Don’t Sacrifice Performance for Fuel Economy

Although specific mpg estimates will vary by model, the Hyundai Tucson has always been known to have good fuel economy. The compact crossover SUV offers a fuel economy range of 23-26 mpg combined for front-wheel drive models and a combined range of 21-23 mpg for all-wheel drive models. This is thanks, in part to the four-cylinder 2.0 or 2.4 liter model options, which all still push out between 160 and 180 horsepower, which isn’t bad for a small crossover of this type.

Drivers can choose from a manual or automatic transmission, front or all-wheel drive, and a variety of engine specs. The car-style unibody construction provides a smooth ride both in town and on the open road, while the 1,500-2,000 pound towing capacity offers plenty of hauling power when you need it.

The Bottom Line

With models affordably priced and designed to be fuel-efficient without compromising performance, the Hyundai Tucson is worth a look for rideshare drivers and delivery contractors. The compact size can be misleading, but one look will show you how useful it can be, with integrated technology for multimedia, navigation, and more.
