Hyundai Tucson – Brief Overview
In terms of design, Hyundai Tucson benefits from the company’s new Parametric design. Thus, we get to see half-mirror type daytime running lights integrated into the grille and LED headlamps placed on the front bumper. On the rear, Tucson features a full-width LED light bar with triangular tail lamp clusters. Overall, the SUV carries an imposing personality with a taste for radical modern design. This will definitely grab the attention of the ever-evolving younger generation.
Powering the SUV is a 2.0-litre petrol engine that makes 154 BHP and 192 Nm. For the diesel heads, Hyundai will also offer a 2.0-litre diesel that makes 183 BHP and 416 Nm. The aforementioned petrol engine uses a 6-speed automatic gearbox. Meanwhile, the diesel engine gets an 8-speed automatic transmission. Thus, Hyundai will not offer a manual gearbox. Being a Hyundai, the updated Tucson gets a long features list. The most talked about feature is Hyundai’s ADAS kit for Tucson. With this, the SUV gets capabilities like forward collision warning, blind-spot assist, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert and more. Therefore, Hyundai Tucson qualifies as a Level 2 ADAS vehicle with all the listed capabilities.
On the inside, occupants will appreciate the dual-tone interior. There are two big fat 10.25-inch screens on offer. One of them is for the infotainment system and the other for the digital instrument cluster.
