The Hyundai Tucson is one of the most successful market launches in recent years. Despite penetrating one of the most complicated market segments, it managed to be the best-selling car in Spain last year with almost 22,000 units.
Among its main advantages is that it belongs to one of the most fashionable segments of today, that of SUVs, with a very personal and sophisticated aesthetic that has found favor with buyers, all at a reasonable price.
Aesthetics and bodywork
On the front, the attractive pyramid-shaped optical groups catch the eye, further highlighting the most technological aspect of the model. These headlights have a sophisticated system of lenses, mirrors and lights inside to achieve the desired effect.
With a body length of 4.50 meters, a height of 1.65 meters and a width of 1.86 meters, it joins the ranks of compact SUVs and offers excellent rear seats, making it an excellent family vehicle with a trunk volume between 546 and 620 liters depending on the version.
The buyer can choose between petrol, diesel, micro-hybrid, self-charging hybrid and plug-in hybrid engines, representing one of the widest ranges on the market. Depending on the version, it carries an Eco or even a Zero label. The range consists of 15 diesel, 11 petrol and 8 microhybrid versions, so there is no buyer who cannot find their preferred option.
The available power range extends from 116 hp to 265 hp. The entry-level version of the diesel series ensures particularly low consumption of just 5.2 liters per 100 kilometers. With a starting price of 26,125 euros. Indoor traction is available as an option and is combined with a choice of operating mode depending on the terrain: mud, sand, snow or asphalt.
A range of engines that perfectly matches their tuning, always favoring the comfort of the occupants without neglecting the excellent steering precision. It also features optional variable suspension.
The interior of the new Tucson was designed according to the Interspace concept, where space, technology and information come together harmoniously. The aim of the brand’s designers was to create a fluid and harmonious cabin in which high quality materials, neutral tones and the latest technology stand out to create a comfortable, technologically advanced and perfectly organized space.
Customers can choose between three interior finishes: solid black in fabric or leather; two-tone black and moss gray in fabric or leather as well as the teal color package. All of this is always characterized by a deep functional component with numerous glove compartments and interior openings.
The Tucson is one of the safest models in its category and combines accident-preventing elements such as the Highway Driving Assistant (HDA). This system combines lane departure warning and intelligent cruise control, which uses sensors and map data to ensure safe driving and adapt the speed to road limits.
Of course, it also has all currently available ADAS driving aids. In the event of an accident, we also have a complete safety equipment with seven airbags inside, including a central one that prevents the front occupants from colliding with each other.
