Hyundai Motor has growing ambitions to European markets. The results and the numbers of them say that now in “fashion are crossovers” and because of this they are offering something new from the Korean manufacturer, the new TucsonReliable car and ambassador of the brand ho in the best way supports the slogan New Thinking, New Possibilities. Thanks to the attractive design and advanced technologies, Tucson is another step forward in terms of supply for more and more picky customers in this segment.
This model is all new, including the name, so this is a real revolution, not evolution compared to the previous ix35, which had an outstanding performance in the market and was undoubtedly one of the most successful representatives in its segment. Previous generations of this realization really had a difficult task, but the true path to success, so the new Tucson his upcoming new mission, to fully conquer Europe and open a new chapter for the company that announces a completely new strategy for the performance of Old Continent. Given that the design was created in the study of giant Rüsselsheim, is produced in the Czech Republic, many things have already folded, and forthe rest remaining time will show.
Modern urban design of the new Hyundai Tucson combined with the robustness necessary for SUV vehicles is the work of the team led by master of his craft, Peter Schreyer. One of the points where conceived and realized this was exactly Rüsselsheim creation and Schreyer isnt hiding that this is the crown of a really very mature approach from the team he created. In front dominates the characteristic “corporate” mask, the new design language of the brand, with a bold chrome horizontal strips roughly like a far more massive brother – Santa Fe,where is dominating the company’s logo.
The remaining part of the front is steroids, but very fluid, and the lights with a distinctive shape look more seriously. Great credit for this lens have special lights and LED segments. Very impressive looking package with LED daytime running lights, which are in sync with fog lights placed in a special way in the frame below the horizontal axis of the front bumper. By moving the A-carrier to the background of visual separation is achieved by a long hood, and it was far more elegant profile. The shape of the wheel arches contribute to agile and dynamic appearance even when the car is standing. The peculiarity of Tucson to the rear is emphasized with visible horizontal lines that are associated with the edges of the wings. Towards this, an interesting game of broken lines is further emphasized this dynamic performance of Hyundai, which undoubtedly boasts one of the most successful design SUV models in the segment. As for the dimensions of the vehicle length 4.475 mm, width 1.850 mm and 1.645 mm viochina confirms the fact that the model is not a typical compact or a little “run away” from that framework. Than its predecessor lacks some deviations, but it is worth mentioning that the news is lower, which contributes to far better aerodynamics and sporting finesse with this crossover is indeed ready to weave as highlighted new story chapter by Hyundai. It must be noted that Tucson is one of the first models in the range the company that offers 11 body colors, start with white (Polar White), followed by the epithet seven metallic and pearl effect with three (Ruby Wine, Phantom Black, Platinum Silver).
So a growing list of changes to the exterior of Tucson, but trust us closely is not a small one in terms of interior ix35. Believe it or not, the advanced options inside made just 70 buttons and switches. Not in the least difficult to memorize because deployed in logical groups. Tucson is completely different from ix35, because the console has been completely changed. It is obvious that the former head of Audi pogral with his own already seen some solutions, but implemented its own specific way. The choice of materials remarkable and unexpected, and finish at the far higher level than what we are used to. As Schreyer said: “We create models for the premium segments”! Everything is soft to the touch, somehow “warm”, Tucson really only approached, but “breathes” in rhythm as we dictate the most eminent European performances. No doubt these changes is a step higher on the ergonomic level, exudes quality, and note only the instrument panel which can stay as little simpler in terms of the overall expression. At the top of the console is a large, non-reflecting display diagonal of 8 inches from the latest generation. On the way through it is managed with very precise navigational system, also of the latest generation, which is three times faster than the previous version are incorporated in the models of Hyundai. There are more options for selecting the desired route, faster updating of data stored on the SD card. As for the audio system is built Seamless DAB radio with six speakers, USB and AUX connections and Bluetooth option.
Section area of the front seats is slightly longer, and as an option they can be electrically adjusted. They have the option to be heated, and can also be ventilated. This option is possible for the rear seats which certainly contributes to greater passenger comfort. Tucson has produced a completely new platform, which allows the crossover much greater spaciousness in the eneterier. Smart-designed and packaged interior only confirms the excellent balance made between the internal and external dimensions, optimum space is provided for travelers, comfortable and bright room (in the Test pattern had sunroof) and 513 liters of luggage space. New and practical features offered include smart power tailgate, start the engine without a key, ambient lighting around the vehicle-activated by approaching .. and when we’re in the cab must mention the good sound insulation and comfort in whole really is a very high level.
Already the initial level of equipment new Hyundai Tucson offers a wide list of standard equipment. If we talk about safety includes six airbags, ESP, Hill-Holder, DBC composition to assist in driving downhill, and an active bonnet. Here it is worth mentioning the more aggressive power steering, trip computer, automatic dual-zone climate … The highest level of equipment Elite, which we had in the Test model had leather package, parking sensors, reversing camera, Static Bending,internal mirrors compass, dark tinted windows, 19-inch wheels. Special mention should be systems of passive and active safety, because thanks to top performance Tucson received the maximum five-star Euro NCAP tests.
The new Tucson in terms of direct rivals can boast a rich supply generator. In the model that operated under the hood beats the heart of the 2.0-liter diesel engine with 185 KC in conjunction with seven-speed automatic (DCT) transmission with double clutch. Excellent performance even while honestly and consumption for the heart! Those 185 horses are delivered with outstanding 402 Nm of torque, and must recognize that the drive to all four wheels is the only choice here. Emissions with the use of catalysts and particulate filter is completely reduced, and all engines comply with stringent Euro 6 standards. The drive to all four wheels delivers 100% torque to the front wheels in normal conditions and up to 40% power to the rear axle in circumstances where it is needed. It is possible to manually dial a Lock Mode, and the system distributes the power 50:50. With all the burdens we test vehicle showed us that spend about 7.5 liters, which is a truly remarkable result for such a vehicle.
At the end we should also stress the excellent manageability of such packaged Tucson. Multifunction power steering is very precise and direct, while the new suspension and damper than we already mentioned offer good comfort, caring and quiet ride, without the characteristic “rocking” for this type of vehicles. Drive Mode (DMS) function with automatic transmission offers two management options, normal and sport, with different characteristics.
For all these details should certainly be paid, so far charged this option requires 34,490 euros.
