The New 2018 Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai update the best-selling Tucson for 2018 with a fresh exterior design, new engines and enhanced technology

If you are looking for a powerful SUV, then take a peek at the new Hyundai Tucson which is now available to lease from Nationwide Vehicle Contracts.

Already one of Hyundai’s best-selling vehicles in both the UK and Europe, the new Hyundai Tucson boasts a refreshed design, updated engine, advanced technology and enhanced safety equipment levels.

Design

While performance and running costs may be the top of the priority list for most customers, design comes a very close second.

The new Tucson’s external design has been refreshed for 2018 with a new design headlight, fog lamp, front bumper and skid plate, as well as Hyundai signature Cascading Grille adding a nice exterior touch. From the side, you can see the new wheel designs in 16”, 17”, 18” and 19” sizes (depending on model) and, at the rear, there is a new rear taillight design, along with a redesigned bumper and exhaust tailpipe.

Internally, the new Tucson boasts plenty of space with the seats up or down. The dashboard has a new soft touch redesign with the touchscreen display audio systems with DAB, Apple Car Play™ and Android Auto™ now coming as standard right across the range. The KRELL audio system, first seen on KONA, now makes a debut in the new Tucson and there are a number of safety features added as standard too, including:

  • Autonomous Emergency Braking
  • Lane Keep Assist
  • Driver Attention Alert (as standard on SE Nav trim and upwards
