2016 Hyundai Tucson Gets a Fresh Makeover

A full two weeks ahead of the 2015 Geneva Motor Show, and Hyundai has taken the wraps off the new 2016 Hyundai Tucson. It looks to be bigger and bolder, but the US won’t see all of its engine offerings. Based on a photo released today in Germany by Hyundai, the Koreans seem to be going for a sleeker profile compared to the current generation. The A-pillar has been pushed back to disconnect it visually from the hood. It breaks up the flow but seems to work well (at least at first glance).

He also said our only choice of engines will be the 133-horsepower 1.6-liter, gas direct injection or the 174-horsepower turbo GDI 1.6-liter engine. Sorry, diesel lovers (and that includes me). The new turbocharged 1.6-liter T-GDI engine is mated to the new seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. In the US this engine is currently used in the Hyundai Sonata Eco and will debut in the Hyundai Veloster Turbo Rally when it goes on sale in May.

It will have 18 cubic feet of space with all the seats up. The 2016 Hyundai Tucson will feature an Autonomous Emergency Braking system, with three operation modes: pedestrian, city and inter-urban, which triggers automatic braking whenever it detects an unsafe closing speed with a person or vehicle in front, from low to high speeds. You can catch it on display at the Geneva Motor Show next month.
