Rediscovering the Hyundai Tucson

The Hyundai Tucson has been around for so long, it’s already viewed by some as a classic. Some may think it appears basic compared to its current competitors, but it has a lot to offer that will thrill you and keep you driven, new normal or not.

“First impressions last” and the same truth applies to the Tucson, which is known as one of the most striking SUVs in its segment. Bearing Hyundai’s refined Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design with its iconic hexagonal front grille, bold headlamps, and sleek lines that emphasize its upscale appearance, the Tucson will always stand out on the road.

Available with a 2.0-liter CRDi diesel engine mated to an eight-speed automatic, it boasts of extremely high efficiency.

Delivering 185ps and 402Nm of torque, the Tucson gives you the power and acceleration that can match those of diesel-powered seven-seater SUV— with much better maneuverability.

Safety has always been a priority of Hyundai for its drivers and passengers alike, and it’s ingrained in the littlest details, like the Tucson’s body frame. The Tucson made waves in Taiwan last year after it remained intact and left its passengers unharmed from a fallen boulder incident. This is a testament to the Tucson’s durability since its frame is made of 51 percent Advanced High Strength Steel (AHSS), a type of steel that’s known to be lighter for better fuel efficiency, but twice as rigid as conventional mild steel.

As for parking, the Tucson makes it easier and safer, thanks to its infotainment system that, apart from its integration with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, also serves as the monitor for your reverse camera. It also comes with standard reverse sensors.

It also has other important safety features, like dual airbags, Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Downhill Brake Control (DBC), Hill-Start Assist Control (HAC), and added security features like the Smart Key System with immobilizer.

The Tucson’s knee, head, and legroom are more than enough for five passengers to have a comfortable ride, while its wide and spacious cargo area offers lots of storage space for your items.

Your sensible and fun ride does not end there. Once you buy a Tucson, Hyundai’s Five-Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty coverage guarantees you a longer, worry-free ownership experience that’s hard to find elsewhere.
