Sales of crossovers Hyundai Tucson this year increased almost twice — 10218 machines for the first half of the year! Updated Tucson, which I tested on the roads of the Central Chernozem region, just add customers. Moreover, the auto brake system I experienced is called, according to the Brazilian system. Successfully!

He had been handsome, this Tucson. And now his face is refined with a new trapezoid grille, more expressive headlights — now in rich configurations, they are completely led (in the past a long light provided linkowanie galogenki). The new design of the rims: they are already „in the database“ 17-inch alloy wheels. In most running models — 18-inch and the top is 19 inches.

Screen multimediasystem is now above the panel, and its diagonal increased from seven to eight inches. Good graphics, intuitive menus and good touch responsiveness of the screen. And if you share Wi-Fi from your phone, navigation & tube show, and the speed camera. However, not all and without a clue on what limit the cameras are set up. But quickly to see the route no problem: scale can be changed by rotating comfortable handle.

Otherwise, the ergonomics remained at the same level: acid blue backlit buttons, not the most expressive profile seat, saltcoats trimmed leather steering wheel. But the buttons on the spokes convenient and informative instrument.

The instruments are clear, with a pleasant white backlight. But the illumination of the buttons is still acid blue

On the rear seats and in the trunk — no change. Except for the fact that the services of the rear passengers now offered USB connector for charging gadgets. But how wide was the range of adjustment of the angle of inclination of the backrests of the rear seats! Leaning all the way back, really rest. And on top of the panoramic roof for expanding „horizons“.

The machines in the two top-end models have wireless charging

New motor diesel 2.0 CRDi still issues 185 „horses“, but instead a six-speed „automatic“ for him docked eight-speed hydromechanical box with an expanded ten percent range of gear ratios. Feedback on gas very nice, „automatic“ switch to quickly — thanks to the new system, torque Converter lock-up with four friction disks. However, in traffic light duels Tucson and now the fighter is so-so. Even in Sport mode, even when starting with two pedals with a disabled traction control system breakthrough does not work: the electronics limit the engine speed to 2,000 and the cuts the peak acceleration.

Button Drive Mode would be better to write „Sport“ as additional modes of the chassis is not offered

However, the petrol version is even less „toothy“ — even Tucson 1.6 T-GDI with no alternative „robot“ 7DCT. Although the numbers of dispersal to „hundred“ it is this modification of the most nimble: 9.1 vs. 9.5 seconds for diesel. In the limit of acceleration is really good, but in normal modes, feedback on the gas much shadenfreude — as before, saves the Sport mode.

The rear seats have a huge range of adjustment of the angle of inclination of backrest

Well, two-liter — and the most popular in our market — Tucson even slower: acceleration to „hundreds“ on the passport of 11.8 seconds for the four-wheel drive vehicle with automatic transmission. And there is no Sport at all in any way.

The chassis settings no change: Tucson is still robust, but without passion. But the Voronezh roads allowed us a new look on the hanger: patched-peralatan sagging and heavy trucks asphalt no hard breakdown. And the 19-inch Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 SUV for two days no one hurt.

By the way, the two-liter Tucson is softer small bumps at low and medium speeds, but on rural roads prone to easy swing. Suspension and more powerful versions denser and tighter — more confident to rush on an undulating road.

Do I need to pay extra for active cruise control, which appeared after the update? I liked: Tucson keeps running, gently accelerates and brakes, and steering wheel controls allow you to adjust the speed and distance. Autopilot? No: if you release the steering wheel, then after 10-15 seconds in the instrument cluster illuminates the requirement to put your hands on the wheel. If you do not heed this call, the system turns off. By the way, in the list of assistants had appeared, informing about the moving machines at the check-out reverse. However, electronics is only a warning, not applying automatic braking, as it happens on the Tiguan or the Kodiak.

The Luggage compartment is small, but in the underground — a full 19 inch spare!

But the „front“ system auto brake failed to test, that is, according to the Brazilian system. Remember the short film from the magazine Yeralash where a novice goalkeeper put in front of a Barber’s window? And people from Hyundai made a test in the Parking lot near the hotel near the airport of Voronezh. Acceleration to 30 km/h and my Tucson travels without braking the layout of the same car. But behind the thin fence, followed by a busy six-lane highway!

Fortunately, a good three dozen of braking in automatic mode have passed without a single failure: Tucson consistently stayed at half a meter from the obstacle, even when the driver kept pressing the accelerator pedal! And it’s nice that this system is not plagued with false alarms in normal driving.

I would buy the updated Tucson? Diesel — perhaps, Yes. The more that a car with an eight „automatic“ can now be purchased for 100 thousand cheaper! If earlier the price of the diesel version started with a mark 1 million 869 thousand rubles, now the input threshold of 1 million 769 thousand, albeit over the car in a more modest configuration. A 150-HP four-wheel-drive Tucson with the „automatic“ in a reasonable-enough version Family (dual-zone climate control, audio system with seven-inch display, a heated steering wheel, rear view camera) now costs 1 million 649 thousand rubles. That is 80 Grand more than the Kia Sportage in a similar configuration.
