Dark accents on the outside and small upgrades inside give the crossover a little extra panache.
Amid the flurry of modified one-off vehicles coming from the SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada, Hyundai is showing something that people can eventually buy. The limited-edition Tucson Sport Night wears some stylish extras that would look especially good on the crossover when the sun sets.
The Night package adds a bevy of black accessories to the outside of the CUV. The biggest change on the outside is a set of Rays 19-inch wheels that come with black lug nuts and red valve stem caps for a little pop of color. The panoramic sunroof also has a darker tint. A set of shadowy mirror caps are a final flourish to the exterior upgrades.
Customers can order the Tucson Sport Night in Coliseum Gray, Caribbean Blue, Dazzling White, and Black Noir Pearl exterior paint. Buyers who prefer a stealthy looks should pick one of the darker colors, but the package’s accents should contrast nicely with the brighter shades, too.
The interior benefits from a few tiny upgrades, too. For example, drivers gets a perforated leather steering wheel and aluminum pedal caps. The Night edition also comes with front and rear LED map lights.
The Tucson Night edition goes on sale in late 2016. However, Hyundai is holding off on announcing pricing for it yet.
The Tucson’s Sport trim uses a 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that produces 175 horsepower (131 kilowatts) and 195 pound-feet (264 Newton-meters) of torque. Customers can choose whether the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission routes that power to the front wheels for a starting price of $26,795 (after $895 destination) or through an all-wheel-drive system for a base cost of $28,195.
The Tucson is already doing quite well for Hyundai this year. In October, the automaker delivered 8,088 examples of the crossover – versus 7,298 in that month of 2015. Cumulative volume through the first 10 months of 2016 was 73,421 units, which was a big jump over 48,374 deliveries in the same period of last year.
