Hyundai Motor Company has launched its new Tucson model, with the popular compact SUV set to signal a new way of driving for customers in the Middle East and Africa regions.
The latest Tucson, Hyundai’s best-selling model globally, enters the market as the most dynamic, innovative and competitive edition in its class, reflecting a blend of design, advanced technology, performance and packaging.
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.
A hallmark of the new Tucson is Hyundai’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design identity and this brings out a futuristic and sporty SUV style look.
Distinctive features at the front include hidden lighting DRLs with a parametric jewel design integrated into the parametric radiator grille, which is highly appealing when turned on at night and a fresh-style meticulous parametric pattern bumper.
The 10.25-inch open-type TFT-LCD cluster is a major innovation in design while the silver accent line that runs along the crash pad from the AVN/AC module to the doors makes the new Tucson more spacious. Another feature is the vertically oriented fully integrated 10.25-inch touch-screen center fascia that descends to the console like a waterfall.
At 4,500 mm (overall length) and 1,865 mm (overall width), the new Tucson is longer and wider than before and at 996 mm (legroom) and 1,000 mm (headroom), it is the largest second-row cabin space in its class.
The new model comes with a choice of powerful and efficient gasoline and diesel next-generation powertrain engines.
The Smartstream G2.0 has a maximum power of 156 ps/6,200 rpm and a maximum torque of 19.6 kg.m/4,500 rpm while the 1.6T-GDI delivers 180 ps/5,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 27 kg.m/1,500-4,500 rpm. Providing a smoother performance is the 2.5 GDI engine, offering 190 ps/6,100 rpm of maximum power and 24.7 kg.m/4,000 rpm of maximum torque.
Bang Sun Jeong, vice president, head of the Middle East and Africa operations, Hyundai, said:
“Having boasted a rich history since its inception in 2004, we didn’t want to create just another Tucson SUV model. Instead, we wanted to manufacture a vehicle that is iconic and will amaze our customers and I’m pleased that the latest Tucson reflects that in every way. Pushing the boundaries of the segment to reinvent just about everything and by utilizing the best technologies, we have created an extraordinary car that is eye-catching, strong, robust, spacious, versatile and energetic.”
The new Tucson is available in 10 exterior color options including Phantom Black, Polar White, Dark Knight, Sunset Red, Silky Bronze, Shadow Grey, Engine Red, Shimmering Silver, Amazon Grey and Teal.
The car interior comes in black and grey color options in one or two tones and available in a choice of two different cloth textures.
