Elevate Your Life With The Versatility Of The New Hyundai Tucson


The newly launched SUV arrives in Malaysia with a RM158,888 price tag

Having opened the order books and displayed the model publicly for the first time in the country only last week, Hyundai-Sime Darby Motors (HSDM) has now officially launched the fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson in Malaysia, its key entrant in the competitive C-SUV segment.

New Design

The new Hyundai Tucson’s ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ design is a striking departure from the previous generation. It boasts head-turning elements including daytime running lights concealed within a Parametric Jewel grille, full-width tail lamps, angular wheel arches and complex, chiselled surfaces.Tucson

Moreover, the modern yet cosseting wrap-around interior features a button-less centre stack under an 8-inch infotainment touch-screen with wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay and voice recognition. Fully imported (CBU) from South Korea, the Tucson comes in three variants, all front-wheel drive with either a 2.0 Lite, 1.6T Plus and 1.6T Max powertrain.Tucson

Petrol Power

The 2.0 Lite’s Smartstream MPI engine produces 156PS and 192Nm of torque, and is paired with a six-speed automatic, whereas the other two variants combine a turbocharged Smartstream 1.6 TGDi engine that develops 180PS and 265Nm of torque with a seven-speed wet dual-clutch transmission (DCT).Hyundai

Safety First

Regardless of variant, the Tucson gets seven airbags including a front-thorax airbag, an electronic parking brake with auto hold, Blind Spot Collision Warning and Safe Exit Warning so safety is always a priority regardless of which variant of the Hyundai Tucson you choose.Tucson

Perusing the spec sheet further, the range-topping 1.6T Max exclusively enjoys eight-way powered and heated and ventilated driver and front passenger seats. There’s also a fully digital 10.25-inch instrument panel, a power tailgate, auto wipers, wireless phone charging and a full Hyundai SmartSense safety suite including Smart Cruise Control.Tucson

Colourful Fun

Available colours are Amazon Gray Metallic, Phantom Black Pearl, Creamy White Pearl, Crimson Red Pearl and Silky Bronze Metallic, with the last two not offered on the 2.0 Lite. The new Tucson is priced, on-the-road before insurance, at RM158,888 for the 2.0 Lite, RM178,888 for the 1.6T Plus and RM195,888 for the 1.6T Max.Hyundai

The first 100 customers who book a Hyundai Tucson on or before 31 December 2023 will receive a complimentary extended warranty (five years/300,000 km) and free service package (three years/50,000 km), thereafter the package will be available at RM10,000.Hyundai
