Hyundai launches all new Tucson in the Middle East
Hyundai Motor Company has launched its all-new Tucson, an eagerly awaited arrival, in the Middle East and Africa regions. The Tucson, which is the brand’s best-selling model globally, enters the market as the most dynamic, innovative, and competitive edition in its class, reflecting a magnificent blend of design, advanced technology, and performance.
Bigger and wider than its predecessors, the fourth generation of the Tucson has been transformed with premium finishing and manufactured to meet the varying needs of customers. One unique feature that customers can take advantage of is the fabric ventilated front seats. Hyundai Motor is the first car manufacturer to introduce the fabric option for ventilated front seating, providing more convenience for customers when on the go.
Distinctive features at the front include hidden lighting DRLs with a parametric jewel design integrated into the parametric radiator grille. On the side, the bold character lines and voluminous rear wheel arches are truly breathtaking.
The quality of the all-new Tucson’s exterior is matched inside the cabin with the interior offering layered forms that provide a feeling of openness. The unique 10.25inch open-type TFT-LCD cluster is a major innovation in design while the silver accent line that runs along the crash pad from the middle to the doors makes the all-new Tucson more spacious. Other key features that come with the all-new Tucson are a customized power tailgate, heated second-row seating, Smart Cruise Control, wireless smartphone charging, a BOSE premium sound system, and a panoramic sunroof.
Bang Sun Jeong, Vice President, Head of the Middle East & Africa Operation at Hyundai, said: “Having boasted a rich history since its inception in 2004, we didn’t want to create just another Tucson SUV model. Instead, we wanted to manufacture a vehicle that is iconic and will amaze our customers and I’m pleased that the latest Tucson reflects that in every way. Pushing the boundaries of the segment to reinvent just about everything and by utilizing the best technologies, we have created an extraordinary car that is eye-catching, strong, robust, spacious, versatile and energetic.”
When it comes to engine options, there is a Smartstream G2.0 that puts out 154 horsepower and 192 Nm of torque or a 1.6-liter turbo GDI that pushes out 178 horsepower and 265 Nm of torque. There is also a 2.5-liter GDI that produces 188 horsepower and 242 Nm of torque.
The all-new Tucson is available in 10 exterior color options and the N Line variant of the Tucson, featuring a unique sporty exterior design will also be available later in 2021.
