Hyundai Tucson, BOLD, SCULPTED DESIGN
This is the all-new 2016 Tucson from Hyundai. This new luxury SUV comes with a new design that employs sculpted body forms and sporty contours for an athletic, bold and striking appearance. The front view proudly presents a hexagonal-shaped grille, a key element of Hyundai’s design signature, enhanced by available high-efficiency LED twin-projector headlights, LED headlight accents and integrated LED Daytime Running Lights (DRLs).
The wheelbase has been increased by more than an inch, for enhanced design proportions, interior flexibility and a smoother ride. For the first time, 19-inch alloy wheels will be offered, with a dynamic asymmetrical spoke design, surrounded by forward-raking wheel arch design. Even the door handles feature convenient approach LED lamps. The new Tucson’s roof rails are sleek and low-profile, for an integrated, functional appearance. From the rear, a Z-shaped character line above the rear wheels accentuates an aggressive, sporty side profile. The rear view conveys stability and a wide, sporty stance, for agility both on and off-road. The taillights also utilize LED technology, creating a premium design element while providing enhanced visibility from the rear. Finally, twin, bevel-cut chrome exhaust tips and a standard rear spoiler add even more sporty cues from the rear view.
This locally assembled C-SUV Tucson is currently only available in a 2WD Nu 2.0 MPI engine with two variants to select from – the Elegance and the Executive. The Elegance retails at an introductory price of RM125,311.51 while the Executive variant retails at RM138,925.68. Price indicated is inclusive of GST but excludes registration fee, road tax, insurance and hire purchase ownership claim fees (only applicable in Peninsular Malaysia). HSDM is offering 50,000km free service with a validity of 3 years with every purchase of the new Tucson, which is equivalent to 6 times of free service.
HSDM offers a 5-year or 300,000km (whichever comes first) warranty on all its new passenger vehicles. A 24-hour road assist service is also now available to new and existing Hyundai vehicles.
