2016 Hyundai Tucson Information Page

Desire by design.

The all-new Tucson goes beyond what you'd expect in a Crossover Utility Vehicle. It's an agile, compact CUV, but its ingenious design maximizes interior space and visibility. The result is a vehicle that's easy to load, effortless to park, fun to drive and exciting to see.

Its design is both athletic and tailored

Hyundai's European design studio has created a dynamic exterior that is clean and inspired. Its design is both athletic and tailored with a strong, wide stance. Confidence and capability dominate the front view. The rear features available dual chrome exhaust tips. This new Tucson reveals the evolving theme of Hyundai's “Fluidic Sculpture” design.

A sporty yet very stylish interior

Tucson's dynamic design theme is also revealed in a sporty yet very stylish interior. The inviting center stack is extremely user-friendly. Materials are upscale and very clean looking. Elegant touches include an available premium finish instrument panel and driver-side console panel while overhead LED map lights add functionality and a touch of high-tech ambiance to the cabin.

Impressive features

The all-new Tucson's bold and efficient design is nicely complemented by several noteworthy technology, convenience and safety features. It has an available Hands-free Smart Liftgate, ventilated front seats, stain-resistant fabric on select cloth interior seating plus added interior space and storage options.

Anticipate something brilliant

Lighting adds to Tucson's premium experience. With available LED Daytime Running Lights and LED tail lights, plus full LED headlights for optimum lighting strength, you'll see and be seen wherever you go. And when the road turns, the available High Intensity Discharge Xenon headlights with Dynamic Bending Lighting System (DBLS) enables the headlights to swivel for optimum directional lighting when taking curves. Plus when the sun sets, there's the added convenience of available LED approach lights on the exterior door handles.

19-inch alloy wheels

The newly designed 19-inch alloy wheels offer a more sporty and premium look. In addition to giving the Tucson an impressive stance and road presence, these available wheels also offer a more secure driving feel.

Hands-free Smart Liftgate

This available feature makes loading and unloading your Tucson more convenient. The Hands-free Smart Liftgate opens automatically when it senses the Proximity Key is behind the vehicle within three feet for more than three seconds. No jumping, waving or kicking needed.

Turbocharged for more efficient power

Those who seek high levels of driving efficiency will immediately love the available engine in the Tucson. This 1.6L turbocharged engine is tuned for smooth responsive power during everyday driving and better fuel economy. Power is delivered through an advanced 7-speed EcoShift® Dual Clutch Transmission (DCT). The result is impressive MPG.

Premium interior features

Tucson's available navigation system features a large 8-inch touchscreen display plus the latest technology to connect your phone and apps, such as Pandora® and Yelp, with the Tucson's touchscreen or give you the option of using voice commands. In addition, many interior features are available to elevate the comfort, convenience and entertainment levels for drivers and passengers.

Lane Departure Warning

Drift outside your lane without signaling and this available system is designed to inform you with an audible and a visual cue. It helps drivers maintain vehicle control and lane positioning.

Innovative safety

Tucson's available safety features are impressive and extensive. They turn technology into tools that help drivers and give them added awareness, control and peace of mind.

Automatic Emergency Braking

Using both cameras and radar sensors, Tucson's available Automatic Emergency Braking* system also has a pedestrian detection feature. So whether it detects an absent-minded pedestrian or a vehicle in your path and determines that a collision is imminent, even if the driver does not react, the system deploys braking force automatically. The system can even apply full brake- force stopping power from 5 to 43 mph, giving you an added element of safety.

Rear Parking Assistance System

Engage reverse gear and distance sensors embedded into the rear bumper produce a warning sound for the driver if the rear of the car gets too close to any object.

Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross-traffic Alert and Lane Change Assist

This radar-based system helps detect when a vehicle is in the driver's blind spot and provides both an audible and a visual alert to help keep you aware as you move down the road. When backing out of a parking space or driveway, Rear Cross-traffic Alert helps identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side. Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane to determine if changing lanes is safe and if it's not, gives the driver an audible and visual warning.

Rearview Camera

When reverse gear is selected, the standard camera at the rear of the vehicle transmits an image of the area behind your vehicle on the touchscreen display.
