The Hyundai Tucson has been around the automotive market for a little more than a decade now. It was first introduced in 2004 as a modest compact sport utility vehicle to go along with the larger Santa Fe and Veracruz. Its relatively small size was not a hindrance for the SUV to prove itself to the market. There is ample room to comfortably seat passengers while the powertrain system gets it going well on the road. Much has changed since then but key selling points remain the same. Here are some things that build up the quality one can get from the 2016 Hyundai Tucson:
When the first-generation Hyundai Tucson was released, it had a couple of engine packages to suit the nuanced preferences of every potential driver. The ride can be fitted with a 2-liter straight 4 and a 2.7-liter V6 that feeds on gasoline. On the other hand, there are also the naturally-aspirated and the turbocharged 2-liter CRDi diesel blocks for a different kind of response. The output of these engines is not too shabby.
For the most recent iteration of the Tucson, Hyundai decided to downsize the engines just a little bit. Despite the reduced displacements, the blocks are able to produce comparable horsepower and torque ratings. All the engine options offered stateside are gas fed. The 2-liter straight 4 is capable of achieving 164 horses and 151 lb-ft of torque while the 1.6-liter turbocharged straight 4 yields 175 horses and 195 lb-ft of torque. Both blocks benefit from Hyundai\'s Gasoline Direct Injection system which is available in all four trims.
Crossover SUVs are meant to incorporate features somehow similar to cars. This means that it should achieve crisp handling without sacrificing too much comfort whenever it is driven through different road surfaces. Standard components on the 2016 Tucson includes independent MacPherson strut with coil springs at front complemented by independent multi-link suspension at the rear. Both front and rear gets gas-pressurized shock absorbers as well as stabilizer bars.
The 2016 Hyundai Tucson was actually given a 5-star rating by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. This governing body in the United States evaluates the integrity of the vehicle when subjected to head-on collisions, side crashes, and rollovers. Hyundai\'s dedication to driver and passenger safety makes sure that the Tucson maintains a very favorable rating since its introduction one decade ago. Even the first generation scored well on the frontal and side crash during its time. But these accidents and mishaps can be prevented by adding components that are meant to aid the driver on the road.
Among the standard safety features included in the 2016 Tucson are the rearview camera, tire pressure monitoring system, vehicle stability management system, electronic stability control, traction control system, anti-lock braking system, electronic brake-force distribution, brake assist and many more. Of course, the interior is also equipped with appropriate seatbelts and airbags mounted in different areas in the cabin.
