In recent years, as the SUV market continues to expand, we have seen a tremendous improvement in both option and quality. And one such enhancement is the new Hyundai Tucson, which has become one of the most common ‘faux-wheel-drives’ after a facelift that definitely gives it a bit of a more rugged look. But while Hyundai is undeniably a popular brand, what is it about the 2017 Tucson that makes it such an enticing option for new car buyers?
What’s Under The Bonnet?
Three engines are available to choose from: two petrol engines and one diesel engine.
The 2.0 GDi 2WD is a 121 kW front wheel drive engine that produces 203 Nm of torque, while the 1.6 T-GDi AWD has 130 kW of maximum power and 265 Nm of torque. The fuel efficiency is about 7.7-7.9L/100km for both petrol engines. You can grab the new Hyundai Tucson offers at the car agencies.
The Tucson can also come with a 2.0 CRDi AWD engine that delivers 400Nm of torque for all you diesel lovers out there which is pretty good for an SUV in its class. Depending on the choice of wheels, fuel efficiency for the diesel engine varies from 6.4-6.8L/100km. There is a maximum towing capacity of 1600kg for Tucsons throughout the range.
You get a choice of a six-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic, as with many SUVs and utes on the market today. The 1.6T-GDi also has a DCT (dry clutch) seven-speed option that allows for manual sequential mode. Everything is fairly smooth and easy to drive, which is not a real surprise.
The Tucson’s interior is a typical Hyundai interior that is not unlike the i30. Although this doesn’t sound too exciting now it’s worth noting that these days, car interior standards are very high, and so it’s still nice and cosy within. The Active is a little bit more on the simple side, but still has that modern feeling and plenty of little conveniences such as cruise mounted steering wheel, audio, and phone controls. Compatible with Bluetooth phone networking as standard, all versions are Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The central touch screen monitors the choices for audio and media and interacts with the rear view camera, while it doubles as your SatNav screen in the Elite and Highlander.
How’s The Warranty?
Hyundai is beating the market here. Per Hyundai comes with a 5-year guarantee of unlimited mileage. And if you think that’s fine, if you sell the vehicle, you also get the Hyundai Lifetime Service Plan that can be passed to new owners. For 3-5 years of service, you can pick your plan and pre-paid, and they will even encourage you to pay monthly payments. Right there is a great peace of mind.
