The brand new Tucson from Hyundai is a mid-size SUV that offers style and practicality at an affordable price. This new model is ideal for families and is designed with many convenient features to make every aspect of your journey effortless. The highly competitive crossover sector is about to get a key new player, with all-new engines, technology and design.
The new Tucson is a leaner and more athletic car than the ix35, with sharp lines and fresh styling that will appeal to modern families. This model also features Hyundai’s new grille design, which has been introduced on recent models such as the i30 and the i40. The rakish roofline refines the Tucson’s silhouette and improves aerodynamics, while alloy wheels plant this confident car firmly on the road. All models except the entry level S variant boast LED lights at the front and the rear. Rugged details such as the rear skid plate add an extra dimension of ruggedness to the Tucson, increasing its off-road capability.
There are six trim levels available so you are sure to find the model that fits your budget and requirements. Every model boasts DAB digital radio, Bluetooth connectivity and USB and MP3 player ports to keep you entertained on the move. The automatic headlights ensure you can always see and be seen, and air conditioning keeps you comfortable whatever the weather. An upgrade to the SE model sees the addition of heated front seats for superior comfort and parking sensors and a lane-keeping driver assist system to improve safety at all speeds. The SE Nav model has upgraded interior features such as an eight-inch touchscreen with satellite navigation. Enjoy the luxury of leather upholstery and heated seats in the Premium variant, which also includes comprehensive safety systems such as autonomous emergency braking. The range-topping Premium SE Tucson offers all this plus an electric tailgate and a panoramic sunroof that floods the already spacious cabin with natural light..
The engine range available with the Tucson will comprise two energetic petrol units and three punchy and frugal diesels. The most powerful choice is the 2.0-litre diesel unit, tuned to produce 185bhp. With this unit beneath the muscular bonnet and equipped with the automatic transmission, the Tucson will sprint from 0-60mph in 9.2 seconds. This engine can be equipped with four-wheel drive for enhanced off-road capability. For maximum efficiency the 1.7-litre Blue Drive diesel unit is superior, boasting returns of 61mpg.
This exciting new addition to the crossover sector will go on sale at the end of 2015. The Tucson offers amazing value for money, with prices starting from the £18,695 for the well-appointed entry-level S model.
