We strongly believe that the 2016 Hyundai Tucson is on a wish list of all the drivers throughout the world, who appreciate high elegance, style and a true variety of the hi-technological features located in a single crossover-SUV. Although, being the South Korean automaker’s, smallest crossover SUV, the Hyundai Tucson, presents one of the most popular and lovable vehicles in the world. The South Korean automaker hopes that with a full redesign that will boost fuel economy, interior space, as well as general handling, will put the Tucson in the same class among its main competitors, such as: the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V, and Ford Escape.
Hyundai Tucson 2016 Exterior
Looking from the outside, this newly made variant will retain its recognizable hexagonal grille as well as its, somehow, sculpted lines of the body. The brand new Tucson will, also, retain its gorgeous look, which will make this ongoing model look like an economy car. When it, finally, hits the car market throughout the world, all-new created 2016 Hyundai Tucson will be available in four trim levels — SE, Eco, Sport, and Limited.
It is intended that the base SE level won’t possess much more than the basic features, while slightly upgraded trim levels, such as Eco and Sport one, will have pretty much different drivetrains and a couple of the key luxury features, but the Limited package will, the most certainly, take the 2016 Hyundai Tucson into near-luxury territory with having everything from leather upholstery to touchscreen navigation, ventilated seats, and a panoramic roof.
When we take into our consideration the inner part of brand-new 2016 Hyundai Tucson, the upscale feel will, definitely, continue inside. Besides thickly bolstered seats, which will look awfully expensive, there will be the dashboard and console designed in that way that will, simply, exude with high elegance, chick and simplicity.
The cabin will remain roomy and it will be more than capable to offer just the enough space to accommodate up to five grownups, who will be able to sit upright quite comfortable with having, at the same time, more than a plenty room for all of their body parts. Even though the cargo space will be slightly wider, it still won’t match the cargo spaces of its main competitors, such as the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Ford Escape.
Hyundai Tucson Engine
We must confess that we are a bit disappointed by a performance from the turbocharged 1.6-liter four-cylinder that will be empowered in the top three trim levels: Eco, Sport, and Limited, mainly because we found this engine to be, somehow, slow in responding under hard acceleration, regardless of the driving mode (regular, Eco, sport) selected.
This particular engine option will be available, matched with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission and it is planned to be more than capable to develop the general output of approximate 175-horsepower, which we consider as a pretty satisfactory amount. The base SE trim level, will come along equipped with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder powerplant option that will be able to pump up to 164-horsepower and will be available matched with a six-speed automatic transmission and adjusted in sport mode.
2016 Hyundai Tucson Release Date & Prices
It has officially been confirmed that newly designed Hyundai Tucson 2016 release date will be in the third quarter of 2015 with prices that will range from around $23,000 to about $33,000, depending, of course, on the exact selected trim level.
