2017 Hyundai Tucson

The 2017 Hyundai Tucson will suit your many needs in life. This medium SUV can fit in all kinds of spaces, yet has plenty of room inside for people and cargo. You also enjoy a comfortable ride, ample power, and modern conveniences. For these reasons and more, it’s one of the top picks for Hyundai Australia. When you visit Peninsula Motor Group, you might be overwhelmed with the selection of Hyundai Tucsons. To help, read on and learn which of the several trim levels might best fit with your lifestyle.



You get a considerable amount of value with the Hyundai Tucson Active. To start off, the SUV uses a 2.0-litre direct-injection four-cylinder petrol engine. You can get either a manual or automatic transmission, while two-wheel drive is included. With this setup, the vehicle can two up to 1,600 kg braked, or 750 kg unbraked. A MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension soaks up road imperfections, so everyone stays comfortable. At the same time, you’ll note as the driver that the SUV handles crisply, so even mountain roads pose no challenge.

Safety matters, and the Active trim level serves up some convincing features to keep everyone safe. The SUV contains front, front side, and side curtain airbags that deploy in a crash, adding an extra layer of protection. The doors automatically unlock after a collision, so rescuers can reach everyone faster. In addition, you’re guarded by antilock brakes, brake assist, electronic brakeforce distribution, downhill brake control, hill-start assist control, traction control, and vehicle stability management. A rear-view camera shows other vehicles, people, animals, etc. that are behind the SUV, before you begin reversing.

Modern conveniences make every trip that much more enjoyable. Among the standard features are cruise control, a rear wiper, steering wheel tilt and telescoping adjustment, plus controls mounted to the steering wheel. The cargo area contains a 12-volt power outlet, which is perfect for running a number of devices.


Active X

Choosing the Hyundai Tucson Active X trim means benefitting from several upgrades. Heated side mirrors keep fog, rain, etc. from blocking your view. Three drive modes allow you to select the settings you want for any situation. Vanity mirror lights mean you can see in the dark, without turning on the dome light and affecting the driver’s visibility. The same thing goes for a glovebox light. LED positioning lights make the SUV more visible in all sorts of conditions.



With the Hyundai Tucson Elite, you can add a turbocharged 1.6-litre petrol direct injection engine. It comes with all-wheel drive and a DCT, providing you with the ultimate in control.

Thanks to LED headlights, you enjoy a clearer view ahead at night. The SUV also gains rear privacy glass, which keeps the interior cooler on sunny days. The tailgate not only is powered, it has a sensor that allows you to open it without the use of your hands.

On the inside, dual-zone climate control and an auto defog feature keep everything comfortable. Air vents in the rear portion of the centre console help second-row passengers warm up or cool off faster.



While the 1.6-litre turbo engine comes standard on the Highlander trim, you also have the option of a more powerful 2.0-litre CRDi engine with all-wheel drive.

The Highlander trim features additional active safety equipment. Drivers gain more awareness and vigilance through the autonomous emergency braking system with pedestrian detection, blind spot detection, forward collision warming, lane change assist, lane keeping assist, and rear cross traffic alert. The tyre pressure monitoring system provides a readout for each individual tyre, so you can remedy the problem and prevent potential tragedy with greater ease. Trailer stability assist removes the risk of towing.

Everyone enjoys a panoramic glass sunroof, opening up wonderful vistas above the SUV. Solar control glass helps prevent the interior from becoming too hot in the summer. In the front, the seats are both heated and ventilated.
