Hi All, I have been doing a lot of research on small/mid CUVs. I have narrowed the choice down between the Equinox and the Tucson. When looking at option between the Equinox 1LT and 2LT I see that the 2LT has a "1st row LCD" but I cannot find any way what services are provided on this LCD. Can someone help? From what I can see the onbly options that you cannot get on the 1LT but are part of the base 2LT are the following:
LCD monitor
Low tire pressure warning
8-way Power Seat


The difference in cost when adding the options to the 1LT vs the 2LT is about $675 cdn which would account for the three items above. Is this correct or have I missed something?

Also if I buy the 2LT and put winter tires on it is there anyway to disable the Low tire pressure warning audible and light during the winter or do I need to buy sensor for each tie ($260).


Thanks

By LCD are you referring to the navigation system? Yes, you can not get nav, you can also not get fog lights or 8 way driver seat with lumbar support. I'm not positive, but I'm assuming the chrome package may not be available either.

However, I am positive that you DO get the tire pressure monitor system, with individual tire pressure display. I was looking into buying an LT1 with driver convenience package, and I made sure of that detail.

I also looked at Tuscon and it was Tuscon or Equinox for me - one thing about Tuscon is that because the way the back is shaped, you lose lot of storage area as you go up.

I also hated how with the 2011 model they got greedy and you had to get the Limited edition to get the sunroof, which ended up only about $2000 less than Equinox LTZ, so I went with Equinox. Did not feel like saving $2000 was worth getting stuck with Hyundai badge. Also two local dealers in my area, Hyundai Fairfax and Brown Leesburg Hyundai had very poor customer service. They constantly spammed my email Inbox and would not stop, but would never update me when a new car came in stock. I actually had to email Hyundai USA directly today to ask them to make them stop with email spam.
