2016 Tucson powertrain offerings also have been softened with tip potency levels as a primary target. Base models offer a Nu engine family, 2.0-liter, direct-injected four-cylinder with an estimated 164 horsepower and 151 lb.-ft. of torque, joined with a 6-speed involuntary transmission. The six-speed involuntary offers SHIFTRONIC primer changeable mode and includes an overdrive lock-up torque converter for aloft fuel economy during highway speeds. Based on middle tests, fuel economy for a 2.0L FWD indication is estimated during 23 (city), 31 (highway), 26 (combined). The 26-mpg total fuel economy rating is a one-mpg alleviation over a prior model. Further, powertrain NVH has been reduced by hydraulic smoothness ascent and recalibrated engine mounts.

Eco, Sport and Limited models offer a new, Gamma engine family, 1.6-liter turbocharged, direct-injected four-cylinder with an estimated 175 horsepower and 195 lb.-ft. of torque. Peak torque smoothness starts during usually 1,500 rpm and binds by 4,500 rpm, for low-RPM responsiveness and opening in bland pushing conditions. The turbocharger facilities low-inertia turbo-spooling response characteristics, and an electronic wastegate control for some-more accurate control of plural pressure. Internally, piston-cooling oil jets safeguard cooler piston temperatures for extended engine life. Further, a Gamma engine facilities a new H2O coupler insert that automatically prioritizes cooling in a top turn of a cylinder block, where some-more explosion feverishness is generated, ensuing in revoke cylinder conduct temperatures and permitting for leaner air/fuel mixtures for softened fuel efficiency.

The turbo engine is joined to a new, first-in-segment seven-speed EcoShift® dual-clutch smoothness (DCT). This dual-clutch smoothness offers superb potency with quick, seamless changeable and sprightly acceleration. When compared with some competitors’ continuously-variable transmissions, this DCT is means to hoop some-more torque with minimal appetite stop around a powertrain doing operation and with incomparable continuance characteristics.

Finally, a complement incorporates both Hillstart Assist and Downhill Brake Control to support drivers confronting pointy slip or decrease conditions.


The 2016 Tucson height offers extended pushing dynamics with some-more than one in. boost in breadth and a 1.2 in. boost in wheelbase for incomparable float comfort and linear stability. The front and back overhangs were increasing in smaller suit to this increasing wheelbase, centering some-more of a Tucson’s mass within a wheelbase for softened doing response and control. Even more, a whole Tucson framework is some-more rigid, now regulating some-more than 50 percent Advanced High Strength steel compared with 18 percent for a former model. The new Tucson also advantages from vital use of constructional adhesives during aloft highlight points on a framework and some-more endless use of hot-stamping methods for incomparable rigidity. The structure also uses four-point bushing mounts for softened comfort and reduced highway noise.

A world’s initial shock-absorber ascent structure, a 2016 Tucson employs a dual-reinforcing row back wheelhouse design, that optimizes panels that are disposed to vibration, ensuing in a 109 percent boost in rigidity, reduced highway sound levels and float and doing improvements.

The Tucson cessation has been extended for some-more accurate doing but sacrificing float comfort. The front cessation is a MacPherson strut design, with curl springs, gas-filled startle absorbers and a 24.7 mm stabilizer bar.
