Hyundai Tucson Adds 6th Powertrain With 7-Speed DCT Gearbox In Europe

Hyundai’s fastest-selling European model, the Tucson, has received a new engine.

It’s a 1.7-liter turbodiesel and it develops 141 PS (139 HP) at 4,000 rpm and a maximum torque of 340 Nm (251lb-ft) between 1,750-2,500 rpm.

When paired to the 7-speed dual-clutch automatic, the FWD compact SUV returns 20 percent better fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions compared to a six-speed automatic transmission, further boosted by the stop/start system, which is offered at no extra cost on the 1.7-liter and 2.0-liter diesels and on the 1.6-liter petrol.

Fuel efficiency figures stand at 5.4 L/100 km (43.56 mpg US) urban, 4.7 L/100 km (50.05 mpg US) extra-urban and 4.9 L/100 km combined (48 mpg US) and CO2 emissions are at 129 g/km. Top speed in this version is 185 km/h (115 mph) and 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) takes 11.5 seconds.

The Hyundai Tucson is one of the safest vehicles in the segment, after achieving a maximum 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP, last fall. It benefits from passive and active safety features like Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition, Blind Spot Detection, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Keeping Assist and Active Hood cushions.
