The Kia South Korean based carmaker has kept its promise and delivered the new 2016 Hyundai Tucson at the 2015 New York Auto Show, this particular model being specifically built for the United States market, where it will start sales this July.
And since Americans fancy Hyundai Tucson, the model will not fail on them, as it will come equipped with a whole new characteristics and power features under the hood. If I were living overseas, I would be mainly interested in the kind of power this model will be coming with. And it comes with reasonable power, I tell you that.
For this particular model, you will have the possibility of testing the potential of the 2016 Hyundai Tucson in full: two petrol units, the 2.0-liter, with 164 horsepower and 205 Nm of torque, as well as the 1.6-liter with a higher 175 horsepower and 264 Nm of torque, the later one being hooked to the 7-speed dual clutch EcoShift transmission.
Apart from the good reliable engines, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson will be also coming with a lot of safety systems, a wide array of features in the cabin and a splendid design. Inside, the model will benefit the latest innovation in terms of technology, like the Connected Care package, with the SOS emergency assistance, as well as other safety gizmos, such as the automatic diagnostic trouble code notification, automatic collision notification assistance, roadside assistance and a lot more.
The body styling is also looking spectacular from my point of view, especially because of the redesigned LED daytime running lights, which are now sitting above the fog lights, as well as other interesting features, which make it quite different and unique, as opposed to its European version.
