Hyundai Tucson

The fact that people’s tastes when it comes to cars are very different and variable is something certain. And lately, many of them choose to buy a crossover and this way the crossover segment in the auto field is developing a lot. Some of the most important companies own at least a crossover in their car fleet. So does Hyundai. The Korean company is the proud owner of the Hyundai Tucson which suffered a few changes as a 2014 model.

The 2014 Hyundai Tucson receives some new exterior elements. The most important are the LED-infused headlights, restyled wheels and optional LED taillights. The interior is also submitted to various changes. The crossover features a tilt / telescopic steering wheel, illuminated front cup holders, reclining rear seats and Bluetooth connectivity. It also benefits of brand new upholstery and a top rated instrument panel on the SE and Limited versions. The same versions can be equipped with a high-tech infotainment system containing an updated interface and a large touch screen.

The engine configurations of the Hyundai Tucson have also been changed. Two new GDI four-cylinder engines replace the previous MPI units. The 2.0-liter Nu GDI develops 164 bhp (122 kW) and 151 lb-ft (204 Nm) of torque. The 2.4-liter Theta II GDI generates 182 bhp (135 kW) and 177 lb-ft (240 Nm) of torque. Both engines are linked to a six-speed automatic transmission which can be mated to an optional all-wheel drive system. Tucson’s new GDI engines are complemented with all-new standard SACHS Amplitude Selective Damping (ASD) for optimum ride, handling and driving comfort. The 2014 Tucson will soon reach dealerships and the cost will begin at $21,450.
