HYUNDAI’S ALL-NEW TUCSON SIGNALS A NEW WAY OF DRIVING IN MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA REGIONS

Hyundai’s all-new TUCSON begins a fresh chapter for Hyundai’s most popular and best-selling SUV model, continuing a global success story that started in 2004.

With more than seven million units sold worldwide, this figure will accelerate with the fourth-generation model undergoing an extraordinary transformation, resulting in the finished product being the most dynamic, innovative and competitive edition in its class.

Now available in Hyundai’s showrooms across the Middle East and Africa regions, the all-new TUCSON is bigger and wider than its predecessors and combines an impressive blend of performance, advanced technology and design.

One unique feature that customers can take advantage of are the fabric ventilated front seats. Previously only exclusive for leather seating, Hyundai Motor is the first car manufacturer to introduce the fabric option for ventilated front seating, providing more convenience for customers when on the go.

The all-new TUCSON is Hyundai’s first SUV to be embodied with Hyundai’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design philosophy, bringing out a futuristic and sporty look at all angles while customers can discover a new level of roominess, comfort and versatility that exceeds all expectations.

Overall, the all-new TUCSON signals a new way of driving no matter the distance of the journey.

A DESIGN THAT’S THRILLING AND TIMELESS

EXTERIOR

At the exterior front, the integration of the futuristic parametric hidden signature lights into one unit represents a stunning high-tech design innovation. The modern aesthetics combined with the parametric patterns of the front bumper helps create a dynamic and high-tech SUV style look that is totally unique to TUCSON.

The parametric radiate grill, which comes in either silver or dark chrome options, integrates the DRLs and the radiator grille while the absence of hood lines creates a clean, elegant and voluminous long hood style. As well as the lower bumper grille, the hidden lighting DRLs, which have a parametric jewel design make the TUCSON stand out even further when illuminated at night.

The bold character lines and voluminous rear wheel arches reinforce the all-new TUCSON’s sporty style at the side. The eye-catching chrome DLO moulding enhances the luxurious look while the connecting side-view mirrors create an energising and classy image. One of the features that gives the all-new TUCSON a dynamic look is the endowing wheel arches, the largest in its class. The parametric pattern alloy wheels come in either 17, 18 and 19-inches.

The rear combination lights feature a new wide, iconic layout while the three-dimensional Hyundai logo reinforces its luxurious image. Enhancing the dynamic look is the parametric pattern bumper with the car also installed with a hidden rear wiper.

 

INTERIOR

The quality of the cabin inside the all-new TUCSON is equally matched with Hyundai taking a forward-thinking approach to design an interior that is spacious and user-friendly. For example, the unique open-style 10.25-inch cluster conveys a high-tech image while the silver accent line that runs along the crash pad from the AVN/AC module to the doors offers more space.

Drivers and passengers can also take advantage of the unique 10.25-inch display and full-touch centre fascia, integrated with an advanced A/C module. In addition, the Electronic Transmission Button, available for the Smartstream G2.5 GDI and 1.6T GDI engines, is integrated into the centre sole, providing excellent usability for drivers.

As well as the redesigned steering wheel offering a better grip, the ambient mood lighting system comes in a selection of 64 colour options.

 

BIGGER AND WIDER

At 4,500mm in length (overall) and 1,865mm in width (overall), the all-new TUCSON is bigger than its predecessors and at 996mm (leg room) and 1,000mm (headroom), it is the largest second-row cabin space in its class. The increase in size means there is adequate cargo space with a trunk capacity of up to VDA 620 litres.

 

DYNAMIC DRIVE, RIDE AND HANDLING

The all-new TUCSON provides unparalleled driving experiences thanks to its powerful powertrain engines, which deliver the best performance in its class and provide a highly competitive level of fuel efficiency.

It comes in a choice of different gasoline and diesel engines.

Powertrain Maximum Power (ps / rpm Maximum Torque

(kg.m / rpm)

Gasoline
Smartstream G2.0 156 / 6,200 19.6 / 4,500
Smartstream G1.6 T-GDI 180 / 5,500 27.0 / 1,500-4,500
Smartstream G2.5 GDI 190 / 6,100 24.7 / 4,000
Diesel (non-GCC countries)
Smartstream 1.6D 136 / 4,000 32.6 /2,000-2,250

 

Fitted with Hyundai’s 3rd Generation Compact N Platform, this enhances the customer-orientated space, chassis safety, fuel efficiency and driving performance.

This means the all-new TUCSON’s steering and suspensions are more responsive than ever and made even better by the feeling of luxury that is transmitted throughout the chassis.

Drivers can be more confident when driving on challenging road conditions thanks to the HTRAC All-Wheel Drive System. With speeds analysed by an advanced electronic controller, it automatically optimizes torque distribution among the four wheels and applies the brakes if necessary, ensuring maximum traction and directional stability.
