On 1st August, Hyundai launches its new mid-size SUV, the all-new Tucson. Bigger, better equipped and more sophisticated than its successful ix35 predecessor, the all-new Tucson is priced and equipped to become one of Australia’s favourite SUVs.

In a first for Hyundai, the multimedia systems in the Tucson Active and new ActiveX model support Apple CarPlay (from September), with Android Auto support to follow from early 2016.

ActiveX is a new model addition compared to the ix35 line-up, with enhanced equipment including 18” alloy wheels and leather-appointed interior, priced at an enticing of $30,490*.

Pricing and specification for all-new Hyundai Tucson is highly competitive for all models:







2.0 MPi 2WD

6 Speed Manual





6 Speed Auto





2.0 GDi 2WD

6 Speed Manual





6 Speed Auto





1.6 T-GDi AWD

7 Speed DCT





2.0 CRDi AWD

6 Speed Auto






All-new Tucson has a stronger and safer body structure than before, with a sleeker, more athletic new look – Tucson is slightly longer and wider than the ix35 that it replaces.

All-new Tucson’s 'Fluidic Sculpture 2.0' design brings dynamic character lines, a bold new take on Hyundai’s ‘brand signature’ hexagonal grille, dramatically-styled projector headlights topped with LED Daytime Running Lights and 0.33Cd aerodynamics.

Inside, all-new Hyundai Tucsonoffers progressive new design themes and substantially more cabin space. Exceptional new convenience features and intuitive controls utilise soft-touch surfaces and higher quality materials.

All-new Tucson boasts a wealth of new technology features:

  • Apple CarPlay smartphone support technology (Active and ActiveX models)
  • LED headlights with static bending lights
  • Lane Departure Warning and Lane Change Assist
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Advanced Traction Cornering Control (AWD models)
  • Trailer Stability Assist (Active, Elite & Highlander models)
  • Hands-free power tailgate on Highlander model
  • Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition on Highlander model

Available with front-wheel or all-wheel drive, all-new Tucson offers a choice of four advanced Hyundai petrol and diesel engines together with three state-of-the-art transmissions.

Significantly, all-new Tucson Elite and Highlander models adopt a re-tuned version of Hyundai’s Gamma 1.6T GDi powerplant – the potent and fuel-efficient high-tech turbo petrol engine shared with Veloster SR Turbo.

The 1.6T GDi engine is matched exclusively with Hyundai’s own advanced seven-speed dual-clutch transmission (DCT).

Exhaustive local testing enabled Hyundai Motor Company Australia’s experienced chassis development team to optimise all-new Tucson for Australian roads and drivers.
