Hyundai Malaysia (Hyundai Sime Darby Motors) has introduced the new Premium 4WD Tucson variant, the latest SUV to offer exceptional comfort and even more convenient features.
In looks, the Hyundai Tucson takes on a bold and athletic presence with refined, flowing surfaces, bulging proportions, sharp lines and the brand’s signature hexagonal grille. The front of the Tucson is dominated by the hexagonal grille, which connects to the LED headlights to create a distinctive identity. The A-pillar positioning and the directional shape of the wheel arches accentuate the car’s dynamic appearance, even while on standstill.
Inside, high-quality materials are introduced across the cabin surfaces, creating a refined cabin ambience. The new horizontal layout of the centre console reflects the car’s elegance while increasing the feeling of roominess.
The new HYundai Tucson 2.0 MPi Premium 4WD variant shares the same powertrain as the 2.0L MPi Elegance, which is coupled with a six-speed automatic transmission. The 2.0 MPi gasoline engine is capable of a maximum 155ps at 6,200rpm and 192Nm at 4,000rpm. However, this new variant is mated with a 4WD-system that delivers 100% of torque to the front wheels during normal road driving and up to 40% to the rear wheels, automatically, depending on road conditions. A manually-selected ‘Lock Mode’ splits torque 50/50% to enhance stability for off-road and low speed. The Traction Control that comes with the system, also efficiently transfers torque to the wheels while maximising grip during cornering.
New premium convenient features for the latest Hyundai Tucson include Twin LED Positioning Headlights with Static Bending Light, dual zone fully automatic air-conditioning; a panoramic sunroof and a roof rack for loading flexibility. Besides, this variant is also fully equipped with six airbags, 6:4 rear seat folding and reclining seat function (also applicable to the 1.6 Turbo GDi and the R 2.0 CDRi variants).
Hyundai Tucson Premium: Built Tough and Safe
The Hyundai Tucson is one of the safest vehicles in its segment and has received the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. It benefits from a solid body structure featuring 51% of ultra-high strength steel for improved torsional rigidity and impact resistance, and a host of innovative, passive and active safety features. As with all Hyundai models, the Tucson also features a state-of-the-art safety system that offers optimal driving stability. These include the Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system, Hillstart Assist Control (HAC), Downhill Brake Control (DBC) and the Electric Parking Brake (EPB).
The Tucson has received numerous car awards, safety ratings awards, as well as the iF Design Award which recognises the bold and distinctive design of the Tucson.
