In the global markets, the new Tucson is offered with three powertrain options – a 1.6-litre T-GDI petrol, a 114bhp, 1.7-litre diesel and a 182bhp, 2.0-litre diesel. The petrol unit gets a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, while the diesel mill is matched to a 6-speed manual gearbox. For the Indian market, the SUV is likely to be available with a 2.0-litre CRDi diesel engine that is tuned for two power outputs 134bhp and 181bhp, against a peak torque of 402Nm. This powert mill is capable to attain a top speed of 201kmph. Transmission options on offer will be a 6-speed manual gearbox and automatic, supported by the FWD (four-wheel-drive) system.
From the deep, guttural rumble at idle, to the wide-eyed force of torque in acceleration, this engine is all about performance. It delivers 435 horsepower* and 400 lb.-ft. of torque* – that’s increased horsepower and torque vs. the fifth-generation vehicle. The engine is intended to maximize power generation from every compression, with large intake and exhaust valves, cylinder heads that feature high-flow ports and intake and exhaust camshafts that have impressive lift. And the icing on the cake – the 5.0L exhaust delivers a more powerful acoustic experience.
