The SUV from Korea got its Native name, Hyundai Tucson, intended for many regions and market basically, was able to become relatively popular also on the expanses of our immense homeland. So what is the secret of the unprecedented popularity of this impetuous and not devoid of the charm of an SUV? It is not a secret that the SUV segment, which many correctly divide into sub-segments, and this, first of all, on the "parquet" and so-called "real" SUVs, with high speed is compacted. For example, in the production program Hyundai had only two SUVs: a full-fledged, so to say, "passable" terracan and parquet Hyundai Santa Fe. It should be noted that the license reincarnation of Mitsubishi Pajero in the first generation, which was produced Koreans under the brand name "Hyundai Galloper", we do not take into account, because directly its manufacturer-it is still a different company, on foreign markets Exited under the same name. And now there is a third, also "parquet", which, in fact, is quite natural, if we consider the requests of most possible consumers. In the lineup Hyundai Tucson is called to become the younger brother of Santa Fe and thus fill the niche of compact SUV. However, "Tucson", as it is asked to name directly creators, by numerous parameters, and in particular, the spaciousness of the salon, many times surpasses it at least because it has a more modern filling.
As mentioned above, the car is named after the North American town of Arizona, which is in the United States. In the language of the Indian Tribe "Pima", the word "Tucson" stands for "spring at the foot of the Black Mountain", and numerous marketers of the company considered that the name of this "City of the Sun", and it is there in the year more than 300 sunny days, as it is possible better new Parketniku Hyundai will help to beat their more famous competitors.
The eye-rushing and attractive appearance gives this car a decisive masculine traits that potential buyers want to see traditionally in an SUV. The main advantages of this car is practicality and versatility. The front view turned out to be extremely impressive. Hyundai Tucson has a relatively large radiator grille in front, as well as headlights that perfectly match the bonnet lines as well as the edges of the wings. The front bumper is such a big large molding, which originates from the grille downwards, there are three large air intakes, as well as two fog lights (this concerns, of course, the models where they are), and then from it already A spoiler is formed. The appearance of Hyundai Tucson noticeably spur alloy wheels, rails on the roof, as well as protective plastic pads on the bumper and body. Special sports wealth is also attached to the dual exhaust system. Confidences, add 195 mm of a road lumen which in practice allow to prove, that so-called «Road Kind» is for future owners absolutely not deception.
Hyundai Tucson has permanently connected full-drive, and therefore up to one hundred percent of traction force at movement on dry asphalt is transferred on the front bridge. By the way, if necessary, in particular, in a turn or at a drift, also the rear bridge is connected, but on off-road you can switch to the mode of so-called compulsory symmetrical distribution of traction between axes at the touch of a button.
Behind the athletic appearance is a comfortable, unusually functional interior. By the way, one of the distinctive features of the last SUV is a free salon, in which both the driver and passengers will feel very comfortable. Handy and functional dashboard, the devices rudder does not close, everything is in sight. Even when the sun is hit, the sensor display is perfectly visible. The toolbar consists of only three elements, with a large speedometer in the center and a small tachometer, as well as a fuel level sensor on the sides. The rear row of seats is successfully formed. In this case, when you transform the backrest, shifts the pillow, allowing you to organize a completely flat surface-it is very smart and comfortable. The front passenger seat can also be folded, providing for long items that need to be transported, additional space or forming a comfortable table for a lone driver. The walls in the luggage compartment are plastic, and the grid and socket are not forgotten.
The enormous space of the luggage compartment can be easily concealed with the help of a solid luggage rack. A large rubber mat, which can be washed, covers the hidden luggage area under the floor. There are six elements designed to fasten the load on the side of the car to protect the load, and three hooks designed for fastening bags.
Despite the impressive torque of 245 nm already with 1800 RPM, as well as the presence of turbines, dynamic miracles wait we did not become. However, it is only necessary to touch the place, and the car starts to behave slightly differently and is perceived differently. Diesel Hyundai Tucson Quite cheerfully able to perform overtaking for overtaking, not forcing to strain neither body, nor soul. It is necessary to note, that in it all the same comfortable and absolutely not shaky suspension, decent on reactions and a steering wheel, endowed almost glove quality skin, soft, however quite a grasp of disc brakes. Of course, no such sports Fintah It may be a question. However, even at a speed of 130 – 150 km/h near the red line of the tachometer at 4000 rpm the motor behaves quite adequately, does not prevent to speak in a low voice and does not roar. Manual mode, both on the track and in the town, in our opinion, absolutely superfluous-without it copes perfectly "automatic".
