The Hyundai Tucson is a great deal, offering a comfortable ride and useful tech features. Its cabin feels fancy, and there’s plenty of space for cargo. However, the engine is slow and struggles to keep up with fast traffic. Despite this, the Tucson is a well-designed small SUV.

Some areas of Tucson are quite appealing. Midtown near the University and downtown offer plenty to do, and northern Tucson (the Foothills) is very nice. However, a significant portion of Tucson consists of rundown strip malls along major roads. While crime isn’t too severe, there are frequent break-ins and thefts in the less desirable areas. There are plenty of hiking opportunities in nearly every direction, but many trails become less accessible during the hotter months. If you enjoy hot weather, Tucson is ideal. The heat from late May to late August feels like opening an oven door. The rest of the year, the weather is fairly pleasant.

If you’re a young couple, I strongly advise against moving here without securing employment first. While rent is cheap, it’s because there are few well-paying jobs. Most opportunities are in the service industry, with Raytheon being the only major employer offering good wages. Most other jobs pay around minimum wage.
