Hyundai Motor UK has officially announced the pricing and specification of the New Tucson, which is available to order now!
Since its launch in 2015, Tucson has been one of Hyundai’s best-selling vehicles in both the UK and Europe. New Tucson is set to continue the model’s popularity with a refreshed design, powertrains, advanced technology and enhanced safety equipment levels.
The new Tucson’s external design has been revamped with the addition a Hyundai signature Cascading Grille along with a new design headlight, fog lamp, front bumper and skid plate. The side profile features new wheel designs in 16”, 17”, 18” and 19” sizes. At the rear, New Tucson receives a new rear taillight design, with a redesigned bumper and exhaust tailpipe. As well as a refreshed external look, internal changes include an all new, redesigned soft touch dashboard, with touchscreen display audio systems with DAB, Apple Car Play™ and Android Auto™, now as standard across the range.
It comes with an increased number of safety features, with Autonomous Emergency Braking, Lane Keep Assist and Driver Attention Alert standardised across all trim levels.
Powertrain efficiency has been improved, with the introduction of a 48v mild hybrid powertrain – a first for Hyundai - which combines with an all-new 8 speed automatic 4WD transmission on 2.0 CRDi 185PS models. An all new “U3” 1.6 CRDi engine is also now available, in 115PS and 136PS outputs combined with a 6 speed manual (115PS/136PS) or 7 speed dual clutch transmission (136PS).

The 1.6 GDi and 1.6 T-GDi engines also adopt a Gasoline Particulate Filter.
Tony Whitehorn, President and CEO Hyundai Motor UK said “Since its introduction in 2015, the Tucson has been a significant part of our business success, culminating in sales of 29,430 vehicles in 2017 – our best-seller and nearly a third of our entire sales volume. New Tucson brings refreshed elements to an already popular external design, whilst the interior has been fundamentally overhauled, with increased connectivity and high-performance audio capability, housed within a redesigned and soft touch dashboard.”
