2016 Hyundai Tucson Changes, Price

The 2015 New York Auto Show is just around the corner, and the debut of remodeled 2016 Hyundai Tucson is what we are expecting. The third generation of Tucson is being opened with this very model and that is now confirmed on the February 17th, 2015 when Hyundai released the first details about its next-generation Tucson. Now we can say that once sold with different names, like Hyundai ix35 in Europe, from now on will be sold under unanimous name and that is Tucson. Another changes are mostly regarding its exterior and powerful look, but also some additional work inside.

2016 Hyundai Tucson Exterior and Interior

One of the more obvious changes is on the outside of the vehicle. The size and shape are slightly remodeled, enough to make an impression. The increase in size is notable, and gets this crossover SUV into the more futuristic look no matter that it borrowed its base with Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport. The aggressive look is enhanced through new hexagonal grille and trapezoidal headlights that are now enriched with a pair of LED lights. The headlights are somewhat higher positioned on the slightly curvier front line and give out specific futuristic look.

The inside of 2016 Hyundai Tucson is being complimented with some additional space due to the growing of the vehicle. So the passengers feel the extra leg and neck place as well as the extra space in cargo area. It is overall more comfortable with now available optional leather seats (heated and ventilated front seats) and usage of high quality materials in general. Former models of Tucson failed in department of space and equal comfort for both front row and back seat drivers, and that is exactly what in the new model 2016 Hyundai Tucson tried to change. The 18.1 cubic feet of luggage space behind the raised second row is more than efficiently used.  Equipment that caught our attention are Smart Parking Assist with parallel and bay parking functions as well as the smarter tailgate that opens when the driver approaches. That it’s once ‘Top Safety Pick’ award wasn’t undeserved proves now incorporated Autonomous Emergency Braking with three models, blind spot detection system but also the active lane keeping assist system that fixes out all unintended lane departures.

European market has found the perfect option with 1.6-liter turbo with 174 horsepower and available with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.  This numbers were a reason enough to persuade 2016 Hyundai Tucson to continue using it on the Australian market as well as the US ground. But the best choice remains direct-injected 2.0-liter four hat is making somewhere over 180 horsepower. Right now power is transmitted with standard six-speed automatic and AWD as optional. Although unconfirmed there are rumors that the Hyundai’s new “N” performance division will be available combined with altered 1.6-liter turbo making about 200 horsepower, but that is as well as the destiny of a fuel-cell version something that we will see at the New York auto show soon.
