Hyundai has added two new Tucsons to its best-selling, compact, SUV line-up, each featuring a turbocharged diesel engine. Introduction of the vehicles expands the range to seven derivatives, including five petrol-driven models which were launched in March.

Of the new additions, the Executive specified version is powered by a 1,7-litre engine that conforms to Euro 6 regulations. The unit, which drives through a six-speed manual gearbox, delivers 85kW at 4 000rpm and 280Nm between 1 250 and 2 750 revs/min.

The engine is built at Hyundai’s factory in the Czech Republic and features a weight-reduced cylinder block, an improved 2 000 bar high-pressure fuel injection system and a Lean NOx Trap catalytic convertor, making it an excellent choice for fuel-efficient driving.

The second turbodiesel derivative is equipped with a full range of standard features at Elite specification level and is equipped with a 2,0-litre Euro 2 engine that delivers 131kW and 400Nm. Six-speed automatic transmission directs power to the front wheels.
