Good morning, fellow Shimmering Silver Tucson owners. My decision to go with this color was predicated more on practicality and process of elimination. I live in Phoenix where dust and broiling 110 temps in the summer are a constant. For me, a dark colored vehicle is a hard pass on both counts - they show dust more readily than other colors and get hotter when outside. My last two vehicles were a candy apple red 2001 Eclipse Spyder and a light blue Mazdaspeed 3, and I have never owned a black or white vehicle. Unfortunately Hyundai's very limited monochromatic color palette for the Tucson Hybrid left me few options. I would have jumped all over the Intense Blue, but only available in ICE. Might have even considered the White on the Tucson, but not for an extra $400. I am happy with my silver, and plan to liven it up a bit with some red trim inside and out.
Just purchased as 'used' with 7500 miles on it. Seems to have been a demo bc the plastic is still on the 2nd row seatbelts and various other places, plus the owner's manual was dogeared to a couple of specific places regarding features. So far I love it. "Birdie" has black leather interior and a sunroof. I really enjoy the look of the dark chrome grill, especially in full sun where it looks almost iridescent.
