In addition, it offers the most electrified powertrain line-up in its class, underscoring Hyundai's commitment to clean driving, while retaining its true SUV character.

The all-new Hyundai Tucson is the fourth generation of Hyundai's successful best-seller with more than 7 million units sold around the globe since it launched in 2004.

By offering the most electrified powertrain line-up in the compact SUV segment, including hybrid, plug-in hybrid, and 48-volt mild hybrid options, the all-new Tucson completes the electrification of Hyundai's SUV fleet in Europe. Other electrified SUVs produced by Hyundai include the fully-electric and hybrid versions of the Kona, NEXO, its second-generation fuel cell electric vehicle, and the Santa Fe with hybrid and plug-in hybrid options on top of the line-up. By introducing electrification to its latest models, Hyundai consolidates its position as the manufacturer with broadest range of electrified powertrains.

The all-new Tucson is a global model. It will be produced in several factories worldwide, and will become the third-generation of the model to be produced in Europe at the Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Czech (HMMC) production plant in NoŇ°ovice, Czech Republic. The second generation Hyundai Tucson was the first model produced at HMMC. This underlines Hyundai's commitment to the European market.

The all-new Tucson was developed to reduce emissions without compromising on being fun to drive. The hybrid version consists of the new 1.6-litre T-GDI (turbocharged gasoline direct injection) Smartstream engine and a 44.2 kW electric motor, with a 1.49 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery. It is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission (6AT) and available with two-wheel or four-wheel drive. The system is the most powerful in the all-new Tucson's powertrain line-up, with a combined output of 230 PS power, meaning it offers low emissions without compromising on driving fun.

Hyundai has combined its efficient and responsive 48-volt mild hybrid technology with the 150 PS 1.6-litre T-GDI, which will be available with six-speed Intelligent Manual Transmission (6iMT) and a seven-speed dual clutch transmission (7DCT). Another well-balanced option is the 1.6-litre T-GDI with 180 PS, which will be offered with six-speed iMT with two-wheel drive in addition to 7DCT with four-wheel drive. Meanwhile, the 136 PS 1.6-litre CRDi 48V mild hybrid engine arrives with 7DCT and either four- and two-wheel drive.

When not mated to the 48-volt mild hybrid system, the 1.6-litre T-GDI Smartstream gasoline engine is available with 150 PS, a six-speed manual transmission and four- or two-wheel drive. The 1.6-litre CRDi Smartstream diesel engine will be available with 115 PS and a six-speed manual transmission with two-wheel drive.

The all-new Hyundai Tucson's 1.6 T-GDI Smartstream engine will be equipped with Hyundai's Continuously Variable Valve Duration (CVVD) technology. CVVD optimises engine performance and fuel efficiency while also being eco-friendly. The valve control technology regulates the duration of the valve opening and closing according to driving conditions. This is the only system that can change the duration of the valve opening during a ride, depending on conditions.

A plug-in hybrid version of the all-new Tucson with a 1.6-litre T-GDI engine and 265 PS will also be available to customers. More details will be revealed closer to the market launch in 2021.
