Combining sleek style with the latest in technology, the Hyundai Tucson is the ideal mode of transport for urbanites. Merging bold design, sophisticated styling, intuitive control features and a wide range of safety options, it’s perfect for exploring the contours of a modern, dynamic city like Doha.
The Tucson is Hyundai’s most popular SUV and the good news is that the Tucson 2018 is available already at Skyline Automotive, Hyundai’s official distribution partner in Qatar.
A solid, high-tech exterior
Hyundai’s Frankfurt Germany Design Center has helped shape the car’s stability and strength. Its hexagonal grille framed by LED headlamps and enhanced by sleek horizontal lines are the ideal statement for motorists looking to stand out. Its rugged exterior offers protection from the elements with a screen that reduces direct sunlight.
The Tucson’s panorama sunroof is one feature that really makes it stand out. Extending to the back seats and available as standard, it gives passengers an unparalleled perspective on the world that surrounds them – from the city’s gleaming towers to striking Islamic architecture and more. Its functions are ideally suited to the reality of busy, modern life with a tailgate smart system automatically opened with a smart key, enabling owners to load and unload the vehicle with maximum ease and convenience. Auto light control features adapt to changes in light intensity surrounding the car, automatically turning the lights on or off.
A comfy and futuristic interior
The interior of the Tucson is spacious and equipped with the latest technology. The driver seat provides 2-step lumbar support for the lower back and enables motorists to adjust their seat in ten different ways to fit their body shape and posture. The front passenger seat can be adjusted in eight different ways and rear seat passengers can easily tilt their seat by pulling a lever conveniently placed on the side of the seat cushion. The rear seats can also be folded in a 6:4 formation to fit objects of diverse shapes and sizes, while a generous 513-liter cargo space easily accommodates large amounts of luggage. The full auto air conditioning system comes with individual controls enabling passengers to adjust cooling and enabling the driver and front passenger to enjoy different temperature levels for a customised ride. Motorists keen to take in the city set to the sounds of their favourite soundtrack will be delighted with the Tucson’s high quality audio system. A Bluetooth function facilitates playback and enables the driver take calls safely whilst behind the wheel.
A powerful, high performance engine
The drive mode control system offers a choice of three options – normal, sports, and eco – matching a range of requirements and conditions on the road. The 7-speed double clutch transmission reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions while improving acceleration. And the 6-speed automatic transmission also delivers excellent results in terms of acceleration and fuel economy while emitting less CO2. The Tucson comes with two options of gasoline engines: 1.6 T-GDi gasoline engine and the 2.0 MPi gasoline engine. As Hyundai Motor’s 1st SUV to offer the choice of a turbo engine, Tucson is able to deliver a more dynamic driving experience with a turbo GDi gasoline engine that has a maximum output of 177 ps at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 27.0 kg.m at 1,500 ~ 4,500 rpm. The 2.0 MPi gasoline engine has a maximum output of 157 ps at 6,200 rpm and maximum torque of 20.0 kg.m at 4,000 rpm, producing a dynamic yet quiet driving experience – ideal for city driving.
When it comes to safety, the Tucson more than delivers. Its electronic stability control system monitors the position of the vehicle in relation to the turning of the steering wheel, applying the brakes individually on each wheel to ensure the stability of the vehicle. An electronic 4-wheel-drive system optimizes driving performance by actively distributing traction between the front and rear wheels according to the road’s surface and driving conditions. Through increasing the use of advanced, high-strength steels to 51% of the body and hot stamping the passenger compartment, Tucson offers increased sturdiness and safety. Straightened body connections and installation of load paths improve the vehicle’s performance in collision tests, ensuring greater safety in the event of a collision. The 6-airbag-system includes a driver’s airbag, passenger’s airbag, 2-side airbags, and curtain airbags to protect all passengers.
Child seats can be easily fixed in to place with child anchors and locks that are fully complaint with ISO standards. Detection sensors prevent collisions by sounding an alarm when they identify vehicles in blind spots or those approaching quickly from the back. In addition, a front and rear parking assist system helps to prevent collisions and enables motorists to park safely by warning the driver about nearby objects when the vehicle is in reverse.
