Specs and pricing have been officially announced for the new 2021 Hyundai Tucson range.
The range now starts in price from $34,500 plus on-road costs for the base petrol Tucson and tops out at $53,000 plus on-roads for the turbo-diesel Highlander N Line.
Initially, buyers will be offered Tucson models powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine. The 1.6-litre turbo-petrol option and 2.0-litre turbo-diesel variants will follow later in the year, as will models equipped with the N Line package.
The naturally-aspirated 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine produces 115kW of power and 192Nm of torque. It’s matched to a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.
For additional punch, the turbocharged 1.6-litre four-cylinder petrol develops 132kW and 265Nm. It’s hooked up to a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic and all-wheel drive.
The 2.0-litre turbo-diesel offers 137kW and 416Nm. It also gets all-wheel drive but uses an eight-speed torque converter automatic.
Dimensionally, the new Tucson comes in at 4630mm long (+150mm), 1865mm wide (+15mm), and 1665mm tall (+5mm) with a 2755mm wheelbase (+85mm).
At launch, Hyundai will offer the car in a base-spec along with the familiar Elite and Highlander trim levels. The latter two can be optioned with an N Line package for a sportier flavour.
