Choosing a new five-seater SUV has just got a little easier with Hyundai’s all-new Tucson range.  You don’t need to spend oodles to get yourself into a brand new Tucson, and it’s a range of new SUV vehicles that are eye-catching and great to drive.  On-board one of these vehicles there is plenty of space for five and the equipment levels are impressive.  I’m really pleased to say that the latest new Hyundai Tucson Diesel is a real gem.  So whether you need an SUV for work, the family or just a great ride, the Tucson Diesel SUV is well worth a look.

Hyundai have given the new Tucson a new shape and design.  The fluid lines look really good in the metal, and you may have to pinch yourself to remember that the Tucson is an SUV and not a Coupe.  Depending on your choice of model, the Tucson has some smart alloys with a 17 or 18-inch size, ensuring good contact with the road.  The flared wheel arches, body coloured bumpers and roof rails are all part of the standard Tucson package.  A chunky nose adds strength and style to the Hyundai appearance, while the headlights are sleek and prominent aiding the very attractive new five-seater SUV looks.  Diesel models come in a range of trim, with the Highlander being the king pin model with all the bells and whistles like dual exhausts and chrome trim on the radiator grille, door handles and door frames.  Whether it’s Phantom Black, Ara Blue or any of the other six colours you’re always going to end up looking amazing pulling up to the dance in one of these.  Hyundai’s ability to create some great vehicle designs are collecting awards globally, and though Hyundai sales are increasing rapidly, you’re always going to catch the eye and feel unique in a sassy new Hyundai Tucson Diesel SUV.

Hyundai Tucson Diesel models boast the most powerful engine in the Tucson line-up.  The CRDi 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo-diesel packs 136 kW at 4000 rpm, while the lusty torque peaks at 400 Nm from as low as 1750 rpm.  Exclusively matched to a high-tech six-speed automatic transmission that drives Hyundai’s Active On-Demand AWD system for optimum traction and control on any road surface.  Out on the open toad the CRDi feels strong and smooth, and any everyday task is performed with ease.  Well controlled in the corners, the AWD Tucson SUV is remarkably agile and leads itself to a ride that offers plenty of confident grip and comfort.  Offering balanced grip and excellent brakes, there is completeness about the way the new Hyundai Tucson Diesel drives.  Hyundai claim they have specifically tuned the new Tucson for Australian roads – and lack thereof – so the Tucson was subjected to an extensive localisation and tuning program, over thousands of kilometres across urban, country and outback roads and surfaces.  This is great information to back up the surefooted handling and proven reliability that the Tucson offers the new SUV buyer.

When you want to head off-road, the Tucson responds with a controlled level of AWD traction.  You can tackle some pretty hairy stuff as your confidence grows.  Bush bashing in the true sense will be left to the Toyota Land Cruisers of this world, but that’s ok, the Tucson Diesel has plenty of capability.

Safety is taken very seriously these days, and Hyundai give each of the new Tucson models a very comprehensive list of modern safety features which include TCS, ABS, EBD, BAS, VSM, LED daytime running lights, automatic dusk sensing headlamps and Hill-start Assist Control combined with an automatic Downhill Brake Control System.  A rear view camera and rear parking assist system is standard across the entire range, while Highlander models get Forward Collision Warning, auto-levelling headlights, front-parking assist, Lane Assist and Lane Departure warning systems.  Each new Hyundai Tucson comes with an array of top airbags front and side.  There is even an engine immobiliser, cruise control and an anti-theft system for each new model.

Luxurious leather interiors look really smart.  Dual-zone climate control are offered, while a steering-wheel controlled audio system puts out some stunning music.  Elite and Highlander models come with the 8.0-inch touch screen satellite navigation system with MP3 capability, 6 speakers and Live SUNA traffic updates.  Automatic phone conversations can be held with the clever technology placed in the Hyundai Tucson Highlander models.

Elite and Highlander models offer the most luxury and goodies, and a Highlander Tucson with the Diesel engine and AWD is quite a vehicle.

Competing directly with the Toyota RAV4, Honda CR-V and Mazda CX-5, when you’re after a comfortable five-seater SUV that’s reasonably priced and packs a punch, the Hyundai Tucson Diesel is the way to go.
