Hyundai Tucson 2017 | New Car Sales Price


Hyundai Australia has released pricing and specifications for its Model Year 2018 Tucson line-up, with the manual Active continuing to open the four-tier range from $28,590 before on-road costs.

However, all front-wheel drive Active and Elite variants are now available with a 121kW/203Nm 2.0-litre GDi naturally aspirated four-cylinder engine – which was already available with Active X models – to replace the former 114kW/192Nm MPi unit.

This heart transplant is due to the carmaker switching production of base model Actives and mid-spec Elites from its Czech Republic plant to a site in South Korea.

As a result, these two now join the Active X – which was already built in Hyundai's home country – on the production line, while range-topping Highlander models continue to be produced in Europe.

Fuel economy improves for the manual Tucson Active to 7.8 litres per 100 kilometres on the combined cycle test, representing a reduction of 0.1L/100km thanks to the upgraded engine.

Alternatively, Active and Elite Tuscons fitted with the new unit retain their previous powerplant's efficiency rating of 7.9L/100km.

The all-wheel drive-only Tucson Highlander continues to be offered with the choice of either a turbocharged 1.6-litre T-GDi petrol four or a 2.0-litre CRDi turbo-diesel four.

A six-speed manual is only available with GDi Active and Active X versions, while T-GDi variants are paired exclusively with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission.

Meanwhile, all GDi and CRDi models can be optioned with a six-speed automatic.

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support has also been added to the Elite and Highlander, bringing them into line with the Active and Active X which already feature smartphone compatibility.

There are no changes to pricing across the entire line-up, meaning the MY18 Tucson costs as much as $47,450 for the auto-equipped CRDi Highlander.
