Everyone wants the equipment is richer, and the price lower. Koreans are not the first year diligently to embody these antagonistic desires in life. As it turns out.

Crossover Hyundai Tucson after restyling hardly risen. Updated base Tucson is 1 399 000 rubles — 30 thousand plus for the same price. The most expensive version of High-Tech plus will cost 2 139 000. Does the price increase even less significant, only 5000 rubles. A diesel version so all became cheaper by 100 thousand.

Visual effect

Tucson — the third mass car in the model range of Hyundai. Just ahead of Creta Solaris. Last year has sold 12 pieces 011 (+ 17% by 2016). The question is, why keep the prices at that and so good buy? Then that the Toyota RAV4 over the same period, found 32 931 of the client. The redesigned Tucson and aims to catch up to market leader: Koreans dream to raise sales by 75%.

Eight-speed automatic is the main technical novelty. It is offered only with a diesel engine. In the upper part of the front panel there is a soft plastic, and in the mid — trim in fabric. The bottom plastic is still tight. Blue backlit keys left.Eight-speed automatic is the main technical novelty. It is offered only with a diesel engine.

Forging success will be extensively redesigned front bumper and full led optics. “Bending new trapezoidal grille symbolize the power of the Korean concern in the steel industry” — the words of a representative of the company has instilled pride in the Korean Steelworkers and forced to look closely at design delights. Looks nice, but the honeycomb lattice is too large, a small stone from the road can get into the radiator. It would be good to put the mesh.

The salon updated. An eight-inch monitor multimediasystem according to the latest fashion moved up, and now he seemed to hover over the front panel. The screen is not deployed to the driver, but is visible well. Before selector transmission appeared niche for wireless phone charging, and the rear passengers — USB port for charging gadgets.

On the road car that received the automatic control system, high beam assistant hold the lane and adaptive cruise control, clearly sees the markup and intelligent taxis, preventing random attempts to get out of the strip. Let go of the wheel. First, the color display instrument panel appears: “Keep your hands on the wheel”, and after a few seconds the message: “the LKA System will be disabled.” After that automatic withdraws and the car pulls to the bumper. To autopilot so far away.

Proven solutions

The engine range has not changed. We left the petrol aspirated 2.0 (150 HP) and 1.6 turbo (177 HP). Two-liter diesel (185 HP) are also familiar, but now he works with the eight-speed hydromechanical automatic machine of our own design. The world debut of this box took place at the Kia Cadenza sedan of the second generation, which is not sold in Russia. We met her at the redesigned Kia Sorento Prime (ZR, No. 2, 2018). This box works on Santa Fe and fourth generation. She’s got the same dimensions as that of a six-speed, but the mass is 3.5 kg lighter and the gear range is 10% wider. Optimized lock-up control torque Converter.

Diesel with the new automatic is good! Tucson smartly responds to the gas and in the country requires 8.5 liters of diesel per hundred against ten liters on the machine with the old machine. Box operates smoothly and tends to go faster on the eighth tier, and savings. If you enable the Sport mode, the reaction gas will become sharper, the machine will not hastily jump to the higher gears, and the wheel will fill with force. So nice.

On a choice offer three options of wheels: 225/60 R17, 225/55 R18 and 245/45 R19. “Eighteenth” appeared on Toscana for the first time — they make a major bet.On a choice offer three options of wheels: 225/60 R17, 225/55 R18 and 245/45 R19. “Eighteenth” appeared on Toscana for the first time — they make a major bet.

Minor flaws asphalt Tucson swallows willingly, but on the bumps and Vierling quickly exhausts the capabilities of the suspension. The primer suspension a couple of times and completely broke. Everything as it was before the restyling. Part of the blame lies with the 19‑inch wheels with “forty-five” tires. On the “seventeenth” would be softer.

On the lift block electromagnetic clutch and sapolsky up. She used to open when reaching 40 km/h, and now blossoms only 60 km/h. In one of our comparative tests (ZR, No. 3, 2016), we noted a tendency of the clutch to overheat. Will definitely check out the upgraded version.

***

Updated Tucson did not get rid of passing on bad asphalt fresh suspension and handling. But the feeling that “you have been given a much better fur” there. Plus rich equipment and adequate price. In the class, dominated by the RAV4, it is more important than driving skills.

Bunch diesel with automatic, rich equipment Fresh character, stiff suspension
