Hyundai Tucson gets updates for the year

The 2018 redesigned Tucson has been launched at all Hyundai showrooms nationwide. Unveiled with futuristic new exterior and interior designs, the facelifted Tucson is available in two variants i.e the 2.0L Elegance and the 1.6L Turbo which are priced at *RM123,888 and *RM143,888 respectively. (*Price excludes insurance and only applies to Peninsular Malaysia.)


The signature elements of the Hyundai cascading grille and modern-day surfacing found in the rear view create shadowy, dramatic impressions that represent the Hyundai DNA. The new 17-inch rims as well as LED headlights and rear lights (applicable for the Turbo variant) offer a new dynamic stance of this redesigned version. The 1.6L Turbo is offered with a Chrome Garnish grille, Chrome Coated door handles with pocket lighting as well as LED headlights with Positioning Lamp and Low Beam Assist-Static Lights. The 2.0L Elegance comes with the Metallic Silver grille and Halogen Bulbs with Positioning Lamp.


The cockpit is redesigned featuring Hyundai’s latest 7-inch floating display that comes with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™; a new front panel air-conditioner vent design, new cluster, and a new leather seat design. The 1.6L Turbo comes with more advanced features such as the Electronic Parking Brake (EPB), Electro-Chromic Mirror (ECM), 8-way power seat for the driver with 2-Way Lumbar Support, 4.2-inch TFT LCD Super Vision and a leather garnish for the front panel.


The 1.6L Turbo maintains the T-GDI engine that produces 177PS of horsepower and delivers a maximum torque of 265Nm from 1,500 to 4,500 rpm while the 2.0L Elegance maintains the Nu MPi engine that produces 155PS of horsepower at 6,200 rpm and a maximum torque of 192Nm at 4,000 rpm.


Safety features such as the Anti-Lock Brake System (ABS), Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Hill-Assist Control (HAC), Downhill Brake Control (DBC), Brake Assist System (BAS) and Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) come as standard for both the variants. The 1.6L Turbo variant comes with six airbags, smart tailgate system, as well as Front and Rear Parking Distance Warning while the 2.0L Elegance variant only comes with two airbags and Rear Parking Distance Warning.


The Tucson is entitled to 50,000km free service with 3 years’ validity and a five-year or 300,000km (whichever comes first) warranty. For more information or to place a booking, interested parties can head to the nearest sales outlet or call Hyundai’s Customer Careline at 1-300-13-2000.
