Facelifted Hyundai Tucson Gets A £21,845 Price Tag In The UK

Since the launch of its third generation in 2015, the Tucson has been Hyundai’s best-selling vehicle in Europe. Now, the facelifted version is getting ready to go on sale in the UK.

Offered in several trim levels with a starting price of £21,845 ($28,960), the 2019 Hyundai Tucson is more affordable than two of its key rivals, the SEAT Ateca and Skoda Karoq.

Standard gear includes the 16-inch alloy wheels, front fog lamps, side mirror with integrated turn signals, automatic headlights, climate control, 7-inch infotainment system with DAB radio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, reversing camera, Bluetooth and others.

Next comes the Tucson SE Nav, from £23,345 ($30,949). Just like the entry-level model, it gets a six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive, though it adds several items, such as the 17-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, privacy glass, and LED taillights. This flavor of the compact crossover also gets automatic windscreen wipers, auto dimming rear mirror, 8-inch infotainment system, navigation, and cruise control.

Bringing even more additional equipment is the Tucson Premium, with new 18-inch alloy wheels, keyless entry and go, electronic parking brake, wireless charging pad, premium audio system and other features carried over from the previous model, such as the leather upholstery, electrically adjustable and heated front seats, Blind Spot Detection and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The Premium grade starts at £25,845 ($34,263).

The Hyundai Tucson Premium SE is the range-topping model and can be had from £29,745 ($39,433). It adds bi-LED headlights, around view monitor, adaptive smart cruise control, panoramic glass sunroof, electric tailgate, heated steering wheel and ventilated front seats.

Depending on the specified model, customers can choose between several powertrains for the Euro-spec Hyundai Tucson, including the new 1.6-liter CRDi diesels, with 115PS (113hp / 84kW) and 136PS (134hp / 100kW), or the 1.6-liter GDi and T-GDi petrol units.

An additional option for the Premium trim level is the 2.0-liter CRDi, with its 48v mild hybrid system, rated at 185PS (182hp / 136kW) and offered with four-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The updated Tucson will go on sale in the UK on July 26.

    This is such a good looking car, versatile, reliable, everything, but with NO appeal. It’s the strangest thing.

      Hang on. You say it looks good, is versatile and reliable but has no appeal? That doesn’t make sense. The fact it’s good looking, versatile and reliable definitely MAKES it appealing.

      • TheHake

        That’s my whole point. It DOESN’T make sense. Even with all it’s positives it has no desirability. And I don’t know why.
