Auto Transport Quotes: Hyundai Tucson
The Hyundai Tucson is a compact sport utility vehicle first introduced by the Hyundai Motor Company in 2004. Slotted below the Santa Fe and above the Hyundai Veracruz. Technically, the Tucson is a compact crossover SUV, with elements of both a traditional sport utility vehicle as well as elements of a standard sedan. Launched in 2004, Hyundai brought the Tucson in to compete with the Toyota RAV4, the Honda CR-V and the Ford Escape, and sales numbers have been decent if not eye-popping since its introduction. In 2007 the Tucson received a small mid-season face lift, and in 2009 the Tucson was upgraded to its second generation, and is now known as the Hyundai ix35, though many people still know it as a Tucson.
Both the Tucson and its second-generation counterpart, the ix35, are basically the same, at least in terms of components. Many parts that work on the 2008 Tucson work on the 2009 ix35, and the bodies are basically identical except for the obvious differences that come with generation shifts. Hyundai, in recent years, has tried to get away from their old naming platforms, which focused on different city names, and instead are going with the more common alphanumeric designations like the ix35. The transition is slow, though, but it really doesn’t mean much from a car shipping perspective other than the fact that if you call looking for quotes and want to ship a Tucson, you may want to say ix35 if you’re drawing silence on the other end of the line.
Transportation-wise, the Tucson is a compact, crossover SUV, which really makes it much easier and cheaper to ship as it’s smaller than most standard sport utility vehicles. Sport utility vehicles are the in-between between standard cars and larger pickup trucks, taking elements of both and making something that Dr. Frankenstein would be proud of. Shipping a Tucson likely will only cost you slightly more than shipping a standard-sized vehicle, like a Toyota Corolla or a Chevrolet Malibu, as opposed to the higher prices associated with a Ford F-350 or a Ram 2500. Its smaller size also has the added benefit of requiring only a standard carrier, whereas some larger sport utility vehicles, particularly the larger ones that have been modified, like lifted Escalades or something to that effect.
