Hyundai has announced full sale details for the new, fourth-generation version of its Tucson SUV.
The new model will arrive in UK showrooms on 7 January 2021, with a choice of petrol, mild hybrid and conventional hybrid powertrains.
A plug-in hybrid version, details of which were announced earlier this week, will join the range subsequently, while previously-announced diesel options are not included in the UK launch.
Instead, there's a choice of a 150hp petrol engine, 150hp and 180hp petrol mild hybrids (the latter with four-wheel drive), and a 230hp conventional hybrid. The petrol engine comes with six-speed manual transmission, the 150hp mild hybrid with a six-speed manual or seven-speed auto, the 180hp mild hybrid with a seven-speed auto, and the conventional hybrid with a six-speed auto.
CO2 emissions figures are 151-155g/km for the petrol, 148-152g/km for the 150hp mild hybrid manual, 144-147g/km for the 150hp mild hybrid auto, 160g/km for the 180hp mild hybrid, and 127-131g/km for the conventional hybrid.
Three equipment grades will be available - SE Connect, Premium, and Ultimate.
Standard equipment with SE Connect includes 17in alloy wheels, dual-zone air conditioning, cruise control, rear parking sensors, a reversing camera, a 10.25in digital instrument cluster, a 10.25in multimedia touchscreen, autonomous emergency braking, lane follow assist, and lane keep assist.
Further equipment with Premium spec includes 18in alloys (19in with the hybrid), LED headlights, heated front seats and steering wheel, adaptive cruise control with stop and go (autos only), front parking sensors, a Krell premium audio system, blind spot collision warning (with avoidance assist on the hybrid), and rear cross traffic warning.
Features of the range-topping Ultimate grade include 19in alloys, three-zone climate control, heated rear seats, a panoramic sunroof, and a smart electric tailgate.
Prices for the new Tucson range start at £28,495 for a petrol SE Connect, and rise as high as £37,380 for a 180hp mild hybrid Ultimate.
