2020 Hyundai Tucson Redesign, Specs & Engine Update
Modernized inside and Outside, the 2020 Hyundai Tucson remains a very spacious SUV; Good grades for the new 1.6 diesel, fluid and little noisy, but not at all practical the vents of the “climate”.
2020 Hyundai Tucson Redesign & Improvement
Upgrading the average SUV Hyundai Tucson covers aesthetics, interiors, and even mechanics: the new 1.6 diesel in versions from 116 and 136 horsepower takes the place of 1.7 (with 116 and 141 horses), and debuts a 2.0 hybrid diesel with 185 hp. Outside only the details change, but enough to provide a more modern air to a model that, however, is still young: debuted in 2015. In front stand out the mask with thinner strips and external rounded profile, the lights in the larger bumper and the headlights full LED. The rims are also new (16 to 19 inches, according to the fittings) and some of the colours, as well as the tailgate, which houses different headlights and has the recess in which the best connected plate with the lateral surfaces is inserted; The bumper and the exhaust terminals are also different.
styling; More Elegant & Contemporary
The bridge of the Hyundai Tucson has been upgraded to the top, now more elegant and “move”, because divided into two levels. The lower one includes the new vents of the “Clima”, which are elegant but not very functional: the flow is modified by shifting the fins to the side, but so varies at the same time the direction of the flow, so it is necessary to seek a compromise between where to send the air And how much to enter it. Above the console is instead placed the display of the multimedia system, resting in a vertical “tablet style”; of 8 inches in this version, incorporates the Navigator (from the graphics not exactly refined), Apple CarPlay and Android car (to view the screens of mobile phones and use them in the car system) and the connection to the free network for seven years, for Get real-time weather and traffic information. There is no shortage of wireless charging of the predisposed cell phones (resting them in the console tray) and also the person behind it has a USB plug to recharge the electronic devices.
Interior & Trunk
For the rest, the cockpit of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson changes little: It has a sharp dashboard but not very personal (and with the underside covered by the steering wheel if you hold down the seat), large storage compartments (the drawer in the dashboard is also refrigerated) and non-luxurious finishes , but of a more than discreet level. The seats are wide and well-adjustable, the space is remarkable in all directions and the main controls are easy to spot; Exceptions are the keys on the left of the dashboard and those on the central tunnel, which obligate to distract themselves (but it is also true that they are not among the most used). The trunk of Tucson has a good capacity in absolute and average for the category. Not excessive the distance from the ground of the load threshold (73 cm of height from the ground) and comfortable the door openable and electrically resealable. Just a pity for the lateral lining, in plastic: it can be easily scratched.
Engine Specs & technology
The most substantial novelty of the Hyundai Tucson, the 1.6 CRDi engine, impressed the US favorably: well-soundproofed and almost vibration-free, it pushes with good fluidity and, in the lower gears, even with a certain brio; The 11.8 seconds provided by the manufacturer to arrive at 100 hours starting from Fermo do not seem to be unreachable, as well as the 175 peak times. Only in the sixth (a rather long march, since at 130 hours the engine works only 2250 laps), one realizes that 116 horses are not many for an SUV of this size: it is enough, however, to get off the ratio (good maneuverability of the gearbox) to regain a certain liveliness. As for consumption, at the end of our test we searched the value in the dashboard: if confirmed by the electronic tools we use in our tests, the 17 km/ liter would be a pretty good result. Being a quiet family SUV, even the road behavior is certainly valid: The road is safe, the car does not tilt too much of the side in corners, the steering wheel (not the lightest to turn) moves with appreciable homogeneity and precision. And the suspensions work well on the disjointed.
2020 Hyundai Tucson Prices and equipment
the date of arrival of the first refurbished Hyundai Tucson, the end of July; Fact is, that almost mid-month the price list and the endowment levels have not yet been established. However, it is not difficult to predict that the ratio between standard accessories and car price will be confirmed as favorable. The prices of 1.6 diesel should start from just over 24,000 euros, while the 29,000 that we have assumed refer to a 1.6 CRDi as the proven one, namely in the richest setting: with electrically adjustable leather seats, system of Lane retention, adaptive cruise control and automatic emergency braking, mirror blind corner sensors, engine start-up and opening without key and navigator doors, as well as cameras that allow you to play in the display Central a view at 360 ° around the vehicle and the guarantee of five years (without limits of mileage).
