Updated Hyundai Tucson Crossover: Details

The interior and exterior of the restyled Hyundai Tucson crossover were shown back in November. But only today, Hyundai, following the already familiar strategy of phased presentation of new products, revealed all the details about cars for the Korean home market.

The modified bumpers and plastic linings had almost no effect on the dimensions of the crossover (in Korea, a long Tucson with a wheelbase of 2755 mm is sold). The length has grown by an elusive 10 mm (up to 4640 mm), while the width (1865 mm) and height (1665 mm) have not changed. The new images show that the main taillights have remained the same, and only the sections in the bumper have been redesigned.

In addition to the completely new architecture of the front panel and the transmission selector on the steering column, Tucson has acquired a modern multimedia system with wireless interfaces Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. There is a possibility of updating “over the air” and a fingerprint authentication system. In addition, the crossover can be equipped with rear passenger warning sensors, a projection screen and an integrated DVR.

Special attention is paid to acoustic comfort during the upgrade. Additional sound-proofing materials have appeared under the cabin floor, on the body pillars, in the front wheel arches and even on the inside of the driver’s seat cushion. The glass in the front doors is now double-layered. More rigid amplifiers in the body structure, eight airbags, seat belt tensioners on the second row and improved brakes are responsible for safety.

But the power units have not changed. In Korea, there are three options to choose from, and there are no atmospherics familiar to us in the local range. Smartstream G 1.6T gasoline turbo engine (180 hp, 265 Nm) paired with a seven-speed preselective “robot”. The Smartstream D 2.0 turbodiesel (184 hp, 417 Nm) is equipped with an eight-speed “automatic”. A hybrid stands apart, which has the same 1.6 gasoline turbo engine aggregated with a six-speed “automatic”, which has an electric motor built into it (65 hp, 264 Nm). The total output is 235 hp.

All three modifications can have front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. And any crossover can be ordered in the “challenged” version of the N Line. It stands out for its external features: more aggressive bumpers, a different radiator grille, darkened lighting equipment, a double-barreled exhaust system, a body-colored plastic body kit and 19-inch wheels. The length of such crossovers is another 10 mm longer. The interior has a dark finish with red decor. No technical improvements are provided, although reinforced N Performance brakes can be ordered separately.

The updated Hyundai Tucson is already available for order in South Korea. Prices start at 27.7 million won (1.96 million rubles at the current exchange rate) for a gasoline crossover and end at 38.6 million won (2.73 million rubles) for a hybrid in the maximum configuration. Later, restyled crossovers will appear in other markets.
