The Tucson, wich is also known as the ix35 in Europe and other global markets, comes standard with LED taillights on the Limited trim level, while the GLS trim comes with the optional Popular Equipment Package.
For just a little over $21,000 (assuming you exclude the $875 freight charges) you can get behind the wheel of the 2015 Hyundai Tucson GLS.
Moving up to the top of the line Limited model means getting all wheel drive and partial zero-emissions for just $27,800.
