The all-new Hyundai Tucson will be replacing Hyundai's ix35 mid-sized SUV this September. Available from our dealerships in Grimsby, Lincoln & King's Lynn order yours today to be the first on the road in this brand new model.
The manufacturer has stated that the intention with the Tucson was to persuade motorists to think differently about Hyundai, and first impressions suggest a shift in perceptions towards the premium end of the market. The Tucson is more elegant and refined than anything previously seen, as its sleek lines and sophisticated details demonstrate. The swept-back headlamps feature LED technology, and even the firm’s trademark hexagonal grille has been re-worked as an example of re-imagined Hyundai design. Chrome features across the body to elevate the sense of luxury, while ‘directional’ wheel arches add a dynamic look and boomerang-shaped tail lights provide instant recognition.
On the inside the SUV is more spacious than its predecessor thanks to a new platform, and places occupants in a comfortable, ergonomic environment. At 65mm longer and 30mm wider passengers have more room to stretch out in, and although the boot shrinks by 75 litres its still one of the most generous in the segment. As expected there’s leather upholstery plus other first-rate materials throughout the cabin, while the centre stack is uncluttered and simple to navigate when you’re on the move.
For an enhanced driving experience and improved safety the Tucson benefits from plenty of intelligent new technology. The seven-inch colour touchscreen positioned at the head of the dashboard includes a fast TomTom satellite navigation feature and comes with a seven-year subscription. An advanced self-parking system joins the options list, as do autonomous braking and rear-cross traffic alert.
Under the bonnet there will be a choice of eco-aware petrol and diesel engines, although exactly which of Hyundai’s units will be included is as yet unknown. A 1.6-litre GDI petrol producing 133bhp and 173bhp feature in the range, next to three diesels – the 113bhp 1.7-litre and a 2.0-litre with 133bhp and 180bhp. Six-speed manual or automatic gearboxes can be paired up with any of the powertrains, and a four-wheel drive version of the 2.0-litre diesel can be expected.
