It's not just an evolution for Hyundai, it's the same zamTUCSON, which means a design revolution at the same time, was offered for sale with gasoline and diesel engine options last year and became one of the best-selling models in its segment in a short time. Hyundai TUCSON is now offered for sale with a hybrid engine option for alternative fuel economy.

18 million sales success in 8 years
Hyundai TUCSON was first introduced in 2004 and reached its fourth generation in 2021. TUCSON, the best-selling SUV model of the brand with more than 18 million sales since 8 years of its introduction, is one of the most popular and demanded SUVs in our country. TUCSON, a rare model in its segment that offers plug-in hybrid, hybrid and diesel 48-volt mild hybrids apart from gasoline and diesel engines, is entering electrification in Turkey with its gasoline hybrid version.
TUCSON, the first Hyundai SUV model designed according to the “Sensuous Sportiness” design identity, offers perfect lighting and exterior appearance even in the dark with its parametric hidden headlights and daytime LED headlights. The headlights, which make a strong first impression, are placed in the grille of the vehicle. When the headlights are turned off, the front of the vehicle turns completely black and dark. Thanks to the state-of-the-art half-mirror lighting technology, when the DRLs are turned on, the grill's dark chrome appearance transforms into jewel-like shapes, turning into an eye-catching one. TUCSON's sophisticated and spacious interior resembles the room of a neatly organized home. Continuously flowing from the center fascia to the rear doors, twin silver-coloured lines are combined with premium plastic and leather trims.
The TUCSON provides users with an enhanced and fully customizable digital experience, especially with its 10,25-inch touchscreen multimedia display that prominently fills the center of the console. It is very pleasant to listen to music in the multimedia system supported by 8 speakers signed by Krell. The first Hyundai model to feature a full touchscreen console, the TUCSON also elevates its look and feel to a new level with high-quality soft-touch materials in the interior. Ventilation grilles start from the doors and flow into the center console.
230 hp hybrid
The gasoline 1.6 liter T-GDI engine features the world's first Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) technology. CVVD is the same while optimizing engine performance and fuel efficiency zammeans an environmentally friendly system. The system, which can change the valve opening time, increases performance by 4 percent and fuel efficiency by 5 percent, while reducing emissions by 12 percent. Developed for more performance and less emissions, the 1.6-liter turbo engine produces 180 horsepower alone and, combined with the 44 kW electric motor, reaches 230 horsepower in total. TUCSON hybrid, which transfers this performance power to the ground with the HTRAC all-wheel drive system, prefers the 6-speed fully automatic type as the transmission.
