Hyundai UK has just expanded its Tucson range for 2016. The luxurious crossover model is now available with a fifth drivetrain option i.e. a 140bhp, 1.7-litre turbo diesel engine with a 7-speed double clutch transmission and two-wheel drive.

This latest addition to the Tucson range is on sale in the UK with on-road prices starting from £24,570 (Rs 22.16 lakh) for the SE trim, rising to £29,695 (Rs 26.76 lakh) for the Premium SE derivative.

The 7-speed automatic gearbox has been developed in-house and is claimed to offer improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions compared to the old 6-speed unit. The former is said to work really well with the turbo diesel engine’s maximum torque of 340Nm developed between 1,750 and 2,500rpm.

The Tucson with the 1.7-litre engine and the DCT drivetrain is now on sale in the UK. Hyundai India, meanwhile, is expected to launch the Tucson locally by September this year.
