The 2010 Hyundai Tucson will start at $19,790 when it arrives at dealerships this month. That money buys you a 2.4L inline-four mated to a six-speed manual. Standard features include traction and stability control, Hillstart Assist, downhill brake control, six-speaker audio system with iPod and USB input jacks, and remote keyless entry, among others.

Upgrading to a six-speed automatic adds $1000. A popular equipment package ($1700 above the GLS with automatic) adds a telescoping steering wheel, auto up/down driver window, leather-wrapped steering wheel, Bluetooth, steering wheel audio controls, cruise control, and others

A 6.5-in navigation package with rearview camera and upgraded audio system costs $3700. And the top-line Limited model starts at $25,140. It features 18-in wheels, leather seating, heated seats, dual climate control, chrome grille and door handles, automatic headlights, fog lights, and requisite "Limited" badges.

All pricing includes a $795 freight charge.
