Mojo Deals: What SUVs could you get for the price of a new Hyundai Tucson?

This week’s new car is the 2011 Hyundai Tucson. Equipped with a four cylinder engine, manual transmission, and front wheel drive, it’s one of the least expensive cross-over sport utility vehicles available. Certainly a nice car, but by taking advantage of the Mojo price we bet you can get a lot more for your money. First, let’s take a look at the Hyundai and its specs:

New Car
2011 Hyundai Tucson GL
Engine: 2.0 4-cylinder Manual
Power: 165hp and 146tq
Drivetrain: Front wheel drive
MSRP: $18,895

So $19k gets you a solid but small mini-ute. Unfortunately, the Hyundai isn’t quite big enough for a large family or any serious cargo and towing. Also, with a car based chassis and front-wheel-drive, there isn’t much off -roading or bad weather in this cars future. So let’s see what we can get for the same price on Mojo…
