Hyundai has released full details of its new 2009 Tucson range which now offers a host of details improvements and enhanced value across the range.
ESP stability program, traction control and an integrated Bluetooth audio system now feature as standard throughout the Tucson range.
The new model is distinguished by its revised front grille, front indicator lens colour change, redesigned rear tailgate garnish, all-new alloy wheel designs and a charcoal black interior.
The new Bluetooth integration allows wireless music streaming directly from a Bluetooth compatible mobile phone or portable audio device as well as storing up to 78 numbers and names in its phone book.
The audio unit also includes integrated USB and Aux sockets allowing users to connect and play music from their iPod, MP3 player or USB stick.
The 2009 Tucson City SX model gains new five-spoke 16″ alloy wheels including a full size spare, ABS with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, dual front airbags, 4 speakers, front fog lamps, keyless remote entry, alarm, power windows and roof bars.
The Elite trim adds a full leather interior, the aforementioned Bluetooth audio system with 6 speakers including tweeters, an electric glass sunroof and curtain and thorax airbags.
Finally, the SX model can also be upgraded with a 2.7 V6 petrol engine and AWD, featuring body colour protective cladding on the lower part of the doors and wheel arches and twin chrome exhaust outlets.
A ‘Protectz’ pack option also upgrades the safety of the SX and SX V6 models to the same specifications as the Elite.
Four new exterior colours are available for the enhanced Tucson range – Sleek Silver, Iron Blue, Silver Grey and Dark Bronze (all metallic), whilst the interior colour theme across the range is now a ‘Charcoal Black’ finish.
