Introducing the New 2016 Hyundai Tucson CUV

| 0 comments

Designed in Europe and built for America, the all-new 2016 Hyundai Tucson Crossover Utility Vehicle (CUV) delivers an exciting blend of head-turning style, smart technology, upscale refinement, and fuel-efficient performance.

The U.S.-spec version of the Tucson is lower, wider, and longer than its predecessor; affording more interior space for people and cargo. While it’s considered to be a “compact CUV,” the new Tucson nonetheless packs a lot of volume and value into its smaller dimensions, making it easier to drive and to park in the crowded urban landscape, without sacrificing practicality.

Fresh, contemporary styling
The redesigned exterior features a fresh, modern, and sophisticated Euro look with available 19-inch alloy wheels adding a bold and assertive curb appeal. The new Tucson’s exterior flows harmoniously from its sloping hood through to the gently rounded rear end, echoing the company’s “fluidic sculpture” design philosophy. Slender, jewel-like LED projector-beam headlights (on the Limited model) and available wedge-shaped, LED fog lights frame the large front grille, which is bisected by three horizontal chrome bands. The Tucson’s muscular flanks are enhanced by wide wheel arches with a sharp crease running from the front fenders to the rear quarter panel, elongating the Tucson’s stance.

Step to the rear of the 2016 Tucson and you’ll notice large LED taillights which carve into the exclusive Hands-free Smart Liftgate that automatically opens when the proximity key fob is in range without any jumping, waving, or kicking. An available panoramic sunroof stretches across almost the entire length of the roof, ending in an integrated spoiler that features a built-in, high-mounted LED stoplight array. Available chrome-tipped dual exhausts add to the Tucson’s sporty demeanor.

Redesigned and roomy interior
The new 2016 Hyundai Tucson’s redesigned interior will immediately impress with its sporty, driver-centric cockpit, cutting-edge technology, and surprising roominess. Form and function combine with upscale premium materials; creating a cabin that excels at comfort, quiet, and convenience. The intuitive controls are logically placed and the ergonomically designed interior helps reduce fatigue for a more effortless driving experience. Unexpected touches include an available premium finish instrument panel with overhead LED map lights. Ventilated front seats and stain-resistant fabrics, plenty of storage bins and compartments add to the Tucson’s premium feel. You can also enhance your Tucson with an optional 405-watt premium audio system, leather seating surfaces, dual climate control, power seats, and more.

Forward-thinking technology
Cutting-edge technology abounds in the new 2016 Tucson. An available 8-inch color touchscreen display sits within easy reach above the clean and uncluttered center console. It puts the latest in entertainment, connectivity, and navigation at your fingertips. Enjoy the added convenience of available voice-activated commands, plus the safety of hands-free dialing with available Siri “Eyes Free” capabilities, along with Bluetooth®. Many of these “infotainment” functions can also be accessed by steering wheel-mounted controls. And there’s even a driver information display in the instrument cluster which communicates vital information. On select models you can even control some functions with an Android smartwatch.

Fuel-efficient performance and advanced safety features
Under the hood, the new 2016 Hyundai Tucson offers two power plant options. The standard powertrain features a peppy 164-hp 2.0 liter four-cylinder engine generating 151 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s mated to a smooth-shifting, six-speed SHIFTRONIC® automatic transmission with Driver Mode Select, which customizes steering effort, throttle mapping, and transmission shift points. Step up to the more spirited and powerful 1.6 liter turbocharged gasoline direct injection (T-GDI) four-cylinder that delivers a responsive 175-hp and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. It’s paired with a new seven-speed, dual-clutch SHIFTRONIC automatic. Both engines offer solid fuel economy, with the Eco front-wheel drive model achieving an EPA-estimated 26/33 mpg city/highway. In terms of handling, the 2016 Tucson can be ordered with Hyundai’s advanced all-wheel drive (AWD) system with Active Cornering Control. The AWD can also be locked for off-road and slippery road conditions.

Safety is of paramount concern at Hyundai. That’s why the new 2016 Tucson features an array of standard and optional safety features. These include radar-based automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, audible rear parking assist, blind spot detection with rear cross-traffic alert and lane-change assist, lane departure warning, and a standard rearview camera.

The handsome, well equipped, and completely redesigned 2016 Hyundai Tucson sprints ahead of the crowed compact crossover SUV field with an impressive array of features, surefooted handling, fuel-efficient performance, and practical efficiency. Expect it to arrive in showrooms sometime this summer.
