New Hyundai Tucson Packs 7-DCT Gearbox And 172HP Turbo Petrol

Hyundai hosted the world premiere of the new Tucson, one of the most significant models in its line-up, in Geneva today.

In Europe, the brand-new Tucson replaces the ix-35 with a much more athletic exterior design, better quality materials and a wide range of fuel-efficient engines.

This range includes two petrol units and three diesel engines: a four-cylinder 1.6 GDI petrol with 132PS (130hp), a turbocharged 1.6 T-GDI petrol with 175PS (172hp), a 1.7-litre 115PS (113hp) diesel and a 2.0-litre diesel with two outputs – 136PS (134hp) and 186PS (183hp).

The turbocharged petrol engine is offered with a six-speed manual or optionally with the company’s new seven-speed double clutch transmission. This engine and the 2-litre diesel ones can be mated with a 4WD system which delivers up to 40% of the torque to the rear axle if necessary, while the driver can manually select a “Lock Mode”, splitting the torque evenly at 50-50 for enhanced stability and traction at low speeds.

The chassis has been developed having European customers in mind, striking the best balance between ride comfort and handling according to Hyundai. Each and every Tucson destined for Europe is manufactured in Hyundai’s Czech factory.
