2018 Tucson MY

I was at a dealer today doing some testing driving of some MY17 to get a feel for the different trans, engines etc and I was talking with the salesperson about my lease being up this December and if he had heard anything about the 2018 MY and when they might be released and he said he had heard whispers, but nothing definitive, but that the 2018s would not be released until December or even early next year, which I told him really screws me over since my lease expires mid December this year...so now I am kinda stuck with what to do...I may just have to leave Hyundai altogether and start looking into other brands if that is truly the case. Just thoug I would pass that info on, take it for what it is worth I guess.

Thanks for the information. That's a shame the 2018 MY Tucson won't be released until December or later - that's a late release. I myself need a new car within the next month or so and would really like to consider a 2018 MY over the 2017. Not sure what I'll do either.

Perhaps there is someone in the Hyundai business that might read this and can either refute that timeline or give a correct launch date for the 2018MY...anyone out there that knows for sure and not just the rumor mill????

He's going to tell you whatever he needs to, to get you to buy a car now and then also come back and buy another one in 18 when you want to do a trade in for the new trim.

The 17 Tucson was released around October of last year.. it's safe to assume that the same will be for the 18's this year. Could be wrong but why would they change the time table? 18 Santa Fe's / Sonata's / Elantra's are all out already, why would the Tucson be the only one to arrive late in the year... doesn't make sense.

If your lease is up in December then wait until November to see if anything has been released.

And if the currently-known changes to the 18 Tucson don't inspire you, plan to get a good end of the year deal on a 17 once the 18's are released and cash in on the dealer wanting to move the old ones off the lot.

I got my 2017 Tucson in August 2016 (I believe Dealers got 2017 MY in month of July).
Anyways there are no major changes in MY18. (Even Hyundai didn't change anything in MY 17 except some minor interior changes for lower trim). You can check all changes in MY 18 on Hyundai Press release webpage.

I serious doubt that this is true. The MY18 changes are already listed here:



From experience, that IMPLIES that the cars are already in the pipeline.

All things being equal, assuming no major MY changes, is it considered better/smarter to get one model year newer vehicle or to save money and take advantage of close out prices on the older model year vehicle? Does the amount of time you keep the vehicle alter the equation? (I tend to keep my cars a very long time and will probably continue to do so in the future)

JustChecking there's no definitive answer there.. it's personal preference. However, saving money is usually the "smarter" route.

I'd say that the time you keep the car does not alter the decision making process, whether it's a 17 or 18 if you keep it 10 years it's still 10 years.. doesn't matter.

There's really only 2 decisions to make that I see.. and you mentioned on them both.

Features .. has anything changed that you really want or really don't care for / need versus what the old model has. While there's nothing major posted right now every model year will have minor changes.. some that are obvious and some that are not so obvious.

Price .. do those features change your willingness to essentially pay more than you would for an older model with any year end deals or wanting to get old models off the lot prices? That's a major factor. You could easily pay $5000 more for the new model when a dealer is trying to unload an old model at a discount. The new stuff had really better be worth it to you, personally.


For me, I want the equivalent of the 17 SE Plus.. posted info doesn't mention much difference between the current SE Plus and the future SEL Plus.. so is it worth it to wait? Who knows... don't know what other little things they might tweak.

Just remember as well, the later you wait the less choices you have for those remaining 17 models.. so you have to decide quickly which route you would want to take.

Thank you so much for your extremely well written in and in-depth reply/post. It seems that, all things being equal and no real MY changes, it's almost always the better idea to go for the one year older MY version. I guess I'll have to make a decision and act quickly.

Thanks so very much again for the analysis!

You had me looking last night... lol.. not many SE Plus's out there right now though in my area... would be difficult to get dealers pricing against each other.. But if I could get it written up for 24K plus incentives I'd be feeling pretty good about that.....

Coliseum Gray, I think..... or wait for 18's.... oh man.. what to do..............
