Hyundai just announced a few days ago the launch od the All-New Tucson for the South Korean local market. After 4 days, preorders for new Hyundai Tucson have reached 4,200 units in just four business days.

[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]My opinion directly from the launch event in Berlin was that Hyundai has succeed with this model. The car looks better than ever, with a bold and premium design, a big prominent Hexagonal front grille. The interior is a mix of latest Hyundai models, with a center console inspired by the Santa Fe, a speedometer and steering directly from the Sonata. LED tailights follow how we saw on the i20 and will see on the Elantra. (you can read all info about the Tucson here).

About engine line-up, the surprise are the inclusion of a 1.6 T-GDi with 180 hp and a 7-speed dual clutch transmission. In the diesel side, improved 1.7 CRDi 116 hp, will be the most desired into European market and also into the South Korean market, half of the preorders have been for a downsized version of the Tucson with a 1.7-liter diesel engine aimed at the compact SUV market, a Hyundai employee said. A 2.0 with 136 and 190 hp will complete the diesel range.

The SUV will be released next week. The popularity of the new Tucson is seen as a response to its enhanced safety features, which include autonomous emergency braking and a lane-keeping assist system designed to prevent unintended lane departures.

    Jose thank you for the update on the Hyundai Tucson. I agree also that this new Tucson will be a best seller for Hyundai not only in South Korea but I expect it to do quite well in the U.S. market. In fact, sales should go to 10k units per month if it’s priced and packaged right.

      Your welcome! Since I saw the car for the first time I was sure that it will be a total hit. And now if Hyundai confirms the second factory at the US and for SUVS in 2017 (read our latest article), will be a hit there.
