Prices and specs announced for 2021 Hyundai Tucson

The new crossover features a range of electrified powertrains

Hyundai has announced that its new Tucson SUV will be available from £28,495. 

The Tucson is Hyundai’s best-selling car in the UK and looks to take a step upmarket in this latest generation – gaining a bolder design, new technology and a higher-quality cabin. 

No diesel engines will be available from launch – nor has Hyundai confirmed any for the future – so instead there is a range of electrified options. Initially, the Tucson is available with a turbocharged 148bhp 1.6-litre petrol engine (available with or without mild-hybrid technology) and a standard 1.6-litre petrol-electric hybrid model, which produces 227bhp. 

A new plug-in hybrid model, which was only outlined yesterday, will join the range later in 2021.

Three trim levels are available on the new Tucson – SE Connect, Premium and Ultimate. 

All versions come very well-equipped with SE Connect models getting 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone climate control, a reversing camera and a range of safety kit. A 10.25-inch touchscreen and digital dial system of the same size are also included. 

Moving up to Premium grade, available from £30,195, brings larger 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights, heated front seats, keyless entry and adaptive cruise control.

At the top of the range is the Ultimate, which costs from £32,985. It adds large 19-inch alloy wheels, electric front seats, an electric tailgate and panoramic sunroof to name but a few features. 

A sporty N-Line model will also join the line-up next year. 

The new Tucson goes on sale on January 7.
