Model History

February 2015
Hyundai Tucson launched

New convenience features offered include heated and ventilated front seats, with longer seating cushions for enhanced support and comfort. A smart powered tailgate (which opens at the approach of the key-holder) and Smart Parking Assist System (SPAS) with parallel and bay parking function both increase everyday usability.

4,475mm tong x 1,850mm wide (+ mirrors) x 1,645mm high on 2,670mm wheelbase.

Hyundai Tucson Wheel and Tyre sizes:

16-inch with 215/70 R16 tyres

17-inch with 225/60 R17 tyres

18-inch with 225/55 R18 tyres

19-inch with 245/45 ZR19 tyres

The new-generation navigation system is more than three times faster than the previous version fitted in other Hyundai models and comes with a seven-year free subscription to TomTom LIVE services (subject to market specification).

The introduction of new technologies ensures that the Tucson is one of the best equipped vehicles in its segment for safety. These include an Autonomous Emergency Braking system - with three operation modes: pedestrian, city and inter-urban - which triggers automatic braking whenever it detects an unsafe closing speed with a person or vehicle in front, and operates from low to high speeds.

In addition, a Lane Keeping Assist System proactively corrects the steering to avoid unintended lane departure, and the Rear Traffic Cross Alert system uses radar to scan a 180-degree area behind the vehicle, alerting the driver to any approaching cross-traffic. In addition, Blind Spot Detection helps monitor traffic around the car, while the Speed Limit Information Function monitors local overhead and roadside speed limit signs and provides reminders. The Active Bonnet System raises the vehicle's bonnet to cushion the impact shock in any frontal collision with a pedestrian or cyclist.

The All-New Tucson is available with a wide range of powertrains. Two petrol engines: 135 PS (1.6-litre GDI) or 176 PS (1.6-litre T-GDI). Three diesels: 115 PS (1.7-litre), 136 PS (2.0-litre standard power) or 184 PS (2.0-litre high power). The new turbocharged 176 PS 1.6-litre T-GDI engine can be paired with either a new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (7DCT) or a six-speed manual.

June 2018
Hyundai Tucson gets mild hybrid

For the first time in a Hyundai, the New Tucson features a 48 V mild hybrid powertrain system which is available in combination with the 2.0 litre diesel engine.

The technology designed for electrification comprises a 0.44 kW/h 48-volt lithium-ion battery, a Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG), a LDC converter (Low Voltage DC/DC) and an inverter.

Thanks to the new electrification system, customers will benefit from a good trade-off between purchase cost and reduced costs related to fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

With this technology, Hyundai aims to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 7 per cent combined with the manual transmission in NEDC conversion.

The 2.0 diesel engine is the most powerful in the New Tucson’s powertrain line-up offering an output of 137 kW/186 PS. It comes with four-wheel drive and can be paired with a 6-speed manual transmission or optionally with the newly developed 8-speed automatic transmission. By spring 2019, the 48 V mild hybrid technology will be available with new Smart Stream 1.6-litre diesel engine in the New Tucson.
