Hyundai Tucson Features
Flowing surfaces, sharp lines and a distinctive chrome-framed hexagonal grille create a powerful and lasting impression. The Tucson effortlessly serves many purposes. It looks great, has enough space for growing families, and navigates city streets with ease.
Cascading front grille
The cascading front grille exudes style and sophistication on the Tucson. The Go and Active X variants have a matte black front grille with a matte grey surround whereas the Elite and Highlander variants have a glossy black grille with chrome surround and inserts.
See and be seen.
Tucson adopts LED headlamps casting a brighter illumination compared to conventional halogen lighting systems. The automatic levelling system reduces glare to oncoming drivers by compensating for vehicle load (i.e. passengers and cargo).
The Tucson is equipped with stylish alloy wheels and includes a full-size alloy spare. The Active X is equipped with 17” alloy wheels, the Elite with 18” alloy wheels and the Highlander with 19” alloy wheels.
Stand out in all conditions
You can’t control the weather. So to help make sure you’re seen in any conditions, the Hyundai Tucson features advanced front and rear fog lights that cut through the gloom.
Electric folding side mirrors with heating
The Tucson features electric folding side mirrors to help manoeuvre into tight spaces and has heating to ensure during the colder months you won’t need to worry about them fogging up.
Safer rear lighting
Large, wraparound rear combination lamps are sculpted and use an LED array for maximum brightness, saving energy and enhancing safety.
Double the sports appeal
The sporty attitude of Tucson is epitomised by the dual exhaust outlets. Situated on the sides of the rear bumper, they provide the perfect mix of style and performance.
Comfort and convenience
For a 5 seater SUV, the Tucson is surprisingly spacious. Our engineers have optimised every inch of the interior in order to give you and your passengers a more comfortable ride, without losing any storage room.
The sky’s the limit.
The twin-panel, panoramic glass roof brings all the joys of open air driving – without the need for hats and scarves. At the touch of a button, the front panel opens – and activates a wind deflector that does just that.
Luxuriate in a premium interior.
Quality emanates from the Tucson’s interior with beautiful leather appointed1 seats. The comfort of the seats extends to the leather appointed1 steering wheel and gear shift knob, making the driver’s experience that much more special.
Convenience for all
Located in the lower part of the rear the centre console, the addition of a USB charging port will provide added convenience to rear seat occupants, allowing them to stay connected to their electronic devices without having to worry about battery life.
Warmth in your hands
The Tucson is all about keeping the conditions at bay. With a heated steering wheel, your hands will stay warm and comfortable in even the coldest weather.
Always sitting comfortably
In cold weather, the front seats can be heated, while on hot summer days, a ventilation system blows a gentle stream of cool air through perforations in each contoured front seat. What a way to maximise driver & passenger comfort.
Set your own climate.
The dual zone climate control system allows the driver and front passenger to set independent climate zones, ensuring utmost comfort for occupants. The system also features an automatic windscreen defog function, which automatically adjusts the climate control system to clear the windscreen, as the first traces of condensation are detected.
Tucson matches its stylish European looks with a flexible interior that seats five people in comfort. With generous storage space throughout, and 60:40 split second row rear seats, you can quickly configure the Tucson to suit every journey.

A joy to ride
Tucson is available with a variety of engines, transmissions and drive-trains, ensuring high levels of customer choice. The combinations on offer deliver exceptional performance, efficiency and driving pleasure.
3 engines - 2.0 GDi 2WD petrol, 1.6 T-GDi AWD petrol and 2.0 CRDI AWD diesel engines
The Tucson’s performance is a testament to the work our designers and engineers put in every day to deliver a more enjoyable and practical ride. Depending on the variant you choose, the Tucson is available with three powerful engines to suit your lifestyle - the 2.0 GDi petrol<sup>13<sup/>, 1.6 T-GDi petrol<sup>2<sup/> and 2.0 CRDi diesel engine.
8-speed automatic transmission8
Available exclusively on the R Series 2.0 Diesel, the in-house developed 8-speed automatic transmission offers enhanced shift logic, is faster, more responsive, and has smoother gear shifts. The 8-speed automatic also enables more potent acceleration from stand still with improved NVH characteristics, more decisive acceleration at high speeds and greater fuel efficiency.
HTRAC, meaning “Hyundai Traction”, increases traction on various environments and surfaces and intelligently redistributes power to all four wheels in more slippery conditions. In short, it means you’ll enjoy improved acceleration, greater stability and better fuel efficiency.
The Tucson features an Australian-specific suspension tune, developed over thousands of kilometres of local on-road testing specifically for our demanding road conditions. The tuning programme was carried out on a variety of road surfaces, including urban roads, highways, freeways, mountain passes, as well as country roads (including dirt, gravel, and corrugations)
Choose your drive mode
The Tucson is as versatile as you are – ready to go wherever you go, whenever you want to go there. To make the most of every journey, the Tucson features three distinct driving modes.
- Comfort: stabilises the vehicle by adjusting the wheels for a smooth every day ride
- Eco: the most efficient for your fuel economy to keep your usage to a minimum
- Sport: gives you the power and crisp responses you need to tackle an adventure
All eyes on safety
No matter where the Tucson takes you, it has some of the most modern safety technologies to give you and your passengers that extra peace of mind. The Tucson has a 5 star ANCAP safety rating, rear view camera and Hyundai SmartSense™ safety features which have been developed to help alert you to (and avoid) any dangers around you.
Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW)
At speeds of 30 km/h or above, Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) uses radar sensors on either side of the rear bumper to detect vehicles next to and diagonally behind Tucson. If a vehicle is present in Tucson’s blind spot, BCW displays a visual alert in the exterior mirrors. If the driver proceeds to activate the corresponding indicator lights, a flashing visual warning is provided and an audible alert is sounded.
The system also scans for vehicles approaching rapidly from the rear, and uses the same warning measures to alert the driver of vehicles which may be entering Tucson’s blind spot at a higher rate of speed.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)
Smart Cruise Control (SCC) with Stop & Go detects the speed and distance of vehicles ahead of the Tucson. SCC maintains a safe distance to the vehicle ahead, up to a pre-set speed (between 30km/h – 180km/h).
The Stop & Go function works in stop/start traffic, bringing the vehicle to a stop when appropriate, and automatically (if within 3 seconds) accelerate back up to the original set speed. If the vehicle is stationary for over 3 seconds, SCC will prompt the driver to continue cruise conditions via the steering wheel switches.
Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW)
Using the Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) system’s radar sensors, at speeds below 10 km/h, the Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW) monitors for traffic approaching on either side of Tucson when reversing out of perpendicular parking spaces. Should RCCW detect a vehicle approaching, an audible warning will sound, with a visual warning displayed on the dash cluster.
Driver Attention Warning (DAW)
At speeds above 60km/h and below 180km/h, Driver Attention Warning (DAW) uses the windshield mounted camera to continually monitor the vehicle’s position within the lane, whilst also tracking steering inputs, brake pedal inputs, as well as time since last break. Should the system detect careless driving (such as sudden steering/braking inputs and/or inability to keep within lane), the ‘Attention Level’ display on the cluster will continually decrease. Should the level decrease to a certain threshold, the DAW system will recommend that the driver take a break.
When it’s too close for comfort 
The Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) system, when active, utilises the front radar sensor and windshield mounted camera to detect and monitor vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists in front of the vehicle. If a potential collision is detected, the system’s Forward Collision Warning (FCW) function will sound an audible warning chime and display a visual warning in the Supervision cluster. FCW is active above speeds of 8km/h, up to speeds of 70km/h for pedestrians and up to speeds of 180km/h for vehicles.
Additionally, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA) works in conjunction with FCW to automatically apply the vehicle’s brakes in the case of a potential collision (where no driver intervention is detected after a FCW system warning). FCA is active above speeds of approximately 8km/h, and will attempt to bring the vehicle to a partial or complete stop if activated up to speeds of 70 km/h for pedestrians and complete stop up to speeds of 80 km/h for vehicles. Between speeds of 81 – 180 km/h when activated, for vehicles, FCA will slow down the Tucson in order to reduce the severity of the collision. In all scenarios of operation (visual and audible warning, slowing down or bringing vehicle to complete stop), pedestrian detection will only occur if the pedestrian is moving at speeds below 10 km/h.
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) system 
Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) System consists of two switchable functions - Lane Departure Warning (LDW) and Active LKA.
At speeds of 60 km/h or above, LDW uses the windshield mounted camera to detect lane markings and monitor the vehicle’s position in the lane. Should the vehicle stray from the intended lane without indicators being activated, an audible and visual warning will be sounded.
Active LKA is operational at speeds of 60km/h or above where lane markings on both sides of the vehicle are detected. The function helps prevent the vehicle from straying from the lane and provides steering intervention as the vehicle is about to leave the lane. Where required LKA provides earlier steering intervention in order to assist the vehicle in staying in the centre of the lane.
Both LDW and Active LKA are momentarily deactivated whenever turn signals are active. Additionally, the driver must maintain control of the vehicle by holding the steering wheel.
High Beam Assist (HBA)
Using the same windshield mounted camera as the LKA system, High Beam Assist (HBA) scans the road ahead of Tucson, monitoring for street lights as well as any other lights, including headlights of oncoming vehicles as well as taillights of vehicles in front. Upon detection the system automatically adjusts headlamp range, switching between high and low beam.
HBA is active at speeds of 41km/h or above, and operational once the light switch, on the indicator lever, is placed in the AUTO position and the lever pushed forward away from the driver.
Look forward to reversing
The rear-view camera activates when engaged in ‘reverse’ so you can see where you’re going and what’s behind you on the touchscreen. The dynamic guidelines help to keep you on track, resulting in perfect parking every time.
