Strong and sturdy, the new Hyundai Tucson is a capable SUV that can handle all the challenges of family life.
With its fluid lines and sculpted curves, the Tucson brings grace to the traditional muscularity of the SUV. It’s at once streamlined and sturdily set, proving that elegance and power can combine seamlessly. A cascading grille and chrome accents set it apart from the crowd, while large alloy wheels and high ground clearance hint at its abilities.
Step inside and you’ll discover understated luxury. High quality materials and soft-touch surfaces complement the contoured seats and generous space.
Tucson is also available with 48V hybrid engines that limit fuel consumption and CO2 emissions. This system reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 11% (in the correlated NEDC cycle) according to vehicle specifications. Available in combination with the 1.6 CRDi 115 hp and 1.6 CRDi 136 hp engines, the 48V hybrid system provides an additional 12 kW of power to the combustion engine during start - up and acceleration phases.
The following illustrations highlight how the 48V hybrid system supports the heat engine by providing electrical power on different driving phases. Find out more about this innovative fuel economy system by browsing the images below.
The 48V hybrid system has a certain advantage in city traffic thanks to the light hybridization alternator-starter that supports the heat engine during the restart phases after being stopped in traf fic. This action ensures a fast and smooth engine restart with additional torque, taking advantage of the 48V battery power. The light hybridization alternator - starter assists the engine during acceleration phases by compensating for torque and power.
During acceleration, the light hybridized alternator starter supports the heat engine with a compensatory power of 4 to 12 kW, depending on the battery charge level and the amount of driver - initiated acceleration . As soon as the desired speed is reached, the 48V hybrid system switches to neutral mode, providing no power. As a result, CO2 emissions and fuel consumption can be reduced by up to 11% (NEDC correlated cycle)
When coasting at low speeds, the start - stop function already activates at 30 km/h. Under deceleration between 30 and 0 km/h, and with the clutch disengaged, the engine is switched off completely
During braking phases, the rotating crankshaft supplies the light hybridization starter - alternator, which then acts as a generator with a maximum energy recovery of the order of 10 to 12 kW. The generator converts the kinetic energy of braking into electricity supplying the 48V battery. In these phases, the heat engine remains running to allow the transmission of power up to the light hybridization alternator - starter.
At a constant speed, the light hybridization alternator / starter is either inactive or acts as a generator to recharge the 48V battery according to its charge level.
A wide range of engines gives you maximum flexibility when choosing your Hyundai Tucson. There’s a variety of power outputs in both petrol and diesel variants to suit your needs, all of which offer assured performance. The elevated driving ride height and supple suspension, meanwhile, deliver a clear view of the road and a settled feel even on bumpy surfaces.
Even the entry-level Tucson is packed with technology, from Bluetooth with voice recognition to rear parking sensors. Upgrade to Executive trim, however, and you’ll get satellite navigation, a rear view camera and heated front seats. Safety features include ISOFIX anchor points, stability control, Hill Start Assist and more.
