Hyundai Motor Company Australia (HMCA) has today announced pricing and specifications for the new 2019 Tucson range.

The revised 2019 Tucson line-up comprises four variants, with a new range-opening Go model.

The 2019 Tucson’s updated look begins with a new visage featuring the Hyundai’s signature cascading grille, restyled headlamps and daytime running lights.

New wheel designs include 17-inch for Go and Active X, and machine-finished 18- and 19-inch for Elite and Highlander.

Every 2019 Tucson features more standard equipment than the preceding model.

A new floating tablet-style multimedia system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is standard across the range.

Tucson Go boasts a 7.0-inch OEM display radio and exterior mirror turn signals and, atop the range, 2019 Tucson Highlander gains a heated steering wheel and wireless (Qi) smartphone charging.

Tucson Active X offers an array of additional features, including leather interior trim, an 8-inch sat-nav system with live traffic and lifetime map updates, Infinity Premium Audio, rear park assist and a tyre pressure monitoring system.

Tucson Elite benefits with the addition of Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW) and Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW)..

2019 Tucson benefits from a new eight-speed automatic transmission, paired with the 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine with all-wheel-drive.

The turbo-diesel engine is offered in each of the four model grades, along with a 2.0-litre direct injection petrol for Go, Active X and Elite, and a 1.6-litre turbo petrol for Elite and Highlander models.

An optional SmartSense pack available for automatic Tucson Go and Active models brings Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist (FCA), Blind-Spot Collision Warning (BCW), Rear Cross-Traffic Collision Warning (RCCW), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA) and Driver Attention Warning (DAW) systems among the safety and convenience features.

Tucson also benefits from a specific Australian suspension and steering calibration honed on our uniquely challenging city and country roads.
