The strongest engine in the Hyundai Tucson powertrain line-up is available with the 6MT or the new and efficient 8AT.
The newly developed 8AT is engineered with a transversal layout. It offers a more compact set-up and an increased gear span for enhanced performance and reduced fuel consumption. The gear ratio is widened by 18.3 per cent resulting in an improved engine response during start and acceleration. During braking the engine response is improved due to a higher downshifting point. The higher gear ratio width ensures greater differentiation of the drive modes.
For the first time in a Hyundai, the New Tucson features a 48 V mild hybrid powertrain system which is available in combination with the 2.0-litre diesel engine. The technology designed for electrification comprises a 0.44 kW/h 48-volt lithium-ion battery, a Mild Hybrid Starter Generator (MHSG), a LDC converter (Low Voltage DC/DC) and an inverter. Under acceleration the MHSG supports the engine with up to 12 kW and thereby reducing fuel consumption. The system switches automatically between mechanical use of the engine and energy recuperation. The MHSG assists the combustion engine by discharging the battery to reduce engine load with light acceleration or to provide additional torque to the engine under strong acceleration. During in-gear deceleration and braking, energy is recuperated to recharge the battery. In this way, the system significantly improves the engine’s fuel economy and CO2 emissions without sacrificing maximum driving pleasure. With this technology, Hyundai aims to reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by up to 7 per cent combined with the manual transmission in NEDC conversion.
Hyundai’s newly developed Smartstream 1.6-litre turbo-charged CRDi diesel engine with two power outputs offers 85 kW / 115 PS in its standard version and is mated to a 6-speed manual transmission with two-wheel drive (fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.8 – 5.0 l/100km; CO2 emissions in NEDC conversion combined: 126 – 132 g/km). The high power version accelerates the New Tucson with 100 kW / 136 PS (fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 4.7 – 5.2 l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 123 – 138 g/km). Customers choosing the stronger Smartstream 1.6-litre powertrain can pair the engine with the 7DCT. For off-road trips Hyundai offers the optional four-wheel drive (HTRAC) for the 136 PS 1.6-litre engine. Both engine outputs are based on the efficient next-generation Smartstream technology, which optimises the engine structure to reduce size and weight. By spring 2019, the 48 V mild hybrid technology will be available with new Smartstream 1.6-litre diesel engine in the New Tucson.
The entry level 1.6-litre GDI petrol engine comes with 97 kW / 132 PS and is equipped with the standard 6-speed manual transmission and two-wheel drive (fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 6.9-7.2 l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 159 – 165 g/km).
The next higher 1.6-litre T-GDI petrol engine generates 130 kW / 177 PS (fuel consumption combined in NEDC conversion: 6.9 – 7.9 l/100km; CO2 emissions combined in NEDC conversion: 159 – 180 g/km). For the new T-GDI customers can opt for the 7DCT and four-wheel drive (HTRAC).

The New Hyundai Tucson: Safe and reliable in every situation
The New Hyundai Tucson offers advanced safety and assistance systems to comply with the highest European standards. Hyundai’s SmartSense class-leading safety package for the updated Tucson includes Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW), Intelligent Speed Limit Warning (ISLW) and High Beam Assist (HBA). New in the safety package is Hyundai’s Surround View Monitor (SVM) and the Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC w/ S&G).
Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) city and inter-urban
The FCA (city and inter-urban) is an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations and brakes autonomously if required. Using a front camera, FCA operates in three stages. Stage one is initially warning the driver visually and acoustically. Stage two is controlling the brake if there is danger of collision. Stage three is applying maximum braking force to avoid a collision, or minimising the damage if a collision is unavoidable.
Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
The New Tucson features Driver Attention Warning, a driver protection feature to help monitor driving patterns in order to detect reckless or fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. The system analyses various vehicle signals, such as steering angle, steering torque, the vehicle’s position in the lane and driving time. In addition, the driver can adjust a user-selectable setting for the system’s sensitivity. If the system detects inattentive driving patterns, a sound and message on the instrument display panel will alert the driver.
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA)
Lane Keeping Assist alerts the driver to unsafe movements at over 60 km/h by sensing the car’s position. The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) sounds an alarm before the car moves over white, grey and blue lines. The system warns the driver acoustically and visually before inducing corrective steering to guide the driver back to a safe position.
Intelligent Speed Limit Warning (ISLW)
The Intelligent Speed Limit Warning uses the front camera and information from the navigation system to identify road speed signs and display the speed limit in real time. The information is displayed both in the navigation system display as well as in the TFT cluster.
High Beam Assist (HBA)
When switched to automatic mode, High Beam Assist detects both oncoming vehicles and vehicles in the same lane ahead at night as well as changes to low-beam as appropriate, thereby reducing blinding effects on other drivers. When no more vehicles are detected, the system automatically reactivates the high beams, maximising the driver’s range of vision.
Surround View Monitor (SVM)
The Surround View Monitor protects those in and around the vehicle. The system uses camera technology to provide 360° vision around the car and displays it on the infotainment screen. Hyundai’s newly developed system avoids harzadous situations and make manoeuvring easy.
Smart Cruise Control with Stop & Go (SCC w/ S&G)
Using front radar sensors, SCC with Stop & Go keeps a constant speed and distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically accelerating and braking. If the traffic comes to a halt, the Stop & Go system applies the brake until the car comes to a stand still and accelerates to the desired speed as soon as the road is clear. If the vehicle stops for longer than three seconds the driver has to activate the system again by the steering wheel controls or by briefly pressing the accelerator pedal. The system operates from 0 to 180 km/h.
