Where do you go when you need the battery replaced in your Hyundai Tucson SUV? Visit your nearest Batteries Plus. At Batteries Plus, we offer free battery testing for your Hyundai Tucson or other vehicle.

Does It Matter What Car Battery You Buy?

Before you begin shopping for a replacement battery, you'll want to look up some information first. Start by finding the correct battery group size   for your Tucson in your owner's manual or online. This will appear as a series of numbers or numbers and a letter. For instance, Group 48 batteries are used in some model Tucson SUVs.

Next, look up the correct CCA rating   for your vehicle. The CCA (Cold Cranking Amps) rating will help you determine how well an auto battery will perform in subzero temperatures. Be sure that the battery you select for your Tucson fulfills the minimum CCA requirement for your vehicle. If you live in an area prone to cold weather, you may want to select a battery with a higher CCA rating than your manual recommends.

What Type of Battery is Right for My Tucson?

The next thing you'll need to determine is what type of battery chemistry you want for your Hyundai Tucson. Flooded batteries are the most basic type of replacement battery. A flooded battery features the lowest upfront cost. One downside is that flooded batteries are not completely sealed. Because of this, some flooded batteries require you to monitor the electrolyte inside and occasionally top it off with distilled water.

AGM is the second type of auto battery. An AGM battery is a bit more expensive upfront, but comes with a number of advantages over flooded batteries, including faster charging and a higher voltage output. That means more power to help start your vehicle more reliably. AGM batteries are also designed to last 2-3X longer than a flooded battery, which means that many users save money with them in the long run.

What is the Best Battery for a Hyundai Tucson?

At Batteries Plus, we offer auto batteries from a number of trusted brands, including Duracell and Optima. If you're looking for the best replacement battery though, you'll want an X2Power AGM battery. X2Power is our exclusive brand of high-performance batteries. Here is a breakdown of the many advantages X2Power has to offer:

Hyundai Tucson FAQs

The two types of auto batteries are flooded and AGM. If your Tucson originally came with an AGM battery installed, you must replace it with another AGM battery. If your Tucson originally came with a flooded battery, you can choose whether you want a flooded or AGM battery.

The cost of a replacement battery for a Hyundai Tucson will depend on what type of battery you get. Flooded batteries are more affordable upfront. Since AGM batteries last longer, you won't have to replace it as quickly, which can save you money in the long run.

The battery in a Hyundai Tucson should last, on average, somewhere between 3 and 5 years. Battery life is impacted by the type of battery you have, the climate you drive it in, as well as your driving habits. Our blog entitled "How Far Do I Need to Drive to Charge My Car Battery?  " is full of information on how to maximize your battery's lifespan.
