Hyundai Motor Company explained that with this model, it has improved overall crash safety performance and significantly improved marketability by applying various infotainment and convenience specifications preferred by customers.

So what about the option configuration? Basically, you can tell the marketability of a new car by looking at the basic specifications of the entry level.

Let’s look at the safety part first. Starting with 8 airbags (1st row advanced/side, rollover response curtain, 2nd row side)

▶ Multiple collision avoidance automatic braking system and
▶ Child seat fixing device (2 in 2 rows)
▶ Safety unlock

This was applied. What catches the eye is the second-row side airbag, which is expected to be of great help in reducing injuries to passengers in the event of an accident.

If you want to add more safety-related features, there are ‘HTRAC + slope low-speed driving system (KRW 1.98 million)’ or ‘Hyundai Smart Sense (KRW 800,000)’.

In terms of exterior, the premium, which is one level higher trim, has wheels, roof rack, and aero type wipers, but because of this, there doesn’t seem to be a need to go to the higher trim.

For reference, the exterior of the modern trim uses LED lamps except for the rear turn signals. In addition, items that were somewhat difficult to purchase, such as double-laminated sound-insulating glass (windshield, first row of doors), door pocket lighting (first row), and outside mirrors (heated, electric folding, electric adjustment, LED turn signal lights), are already standard. there is.

Meanwhile, the key to the change in Tucson’s interior is the display that extends from the driver’s seat to the center. The modern trim has the same appearance, but has a different display configuration, with a 4.2-inch color LCD applied to the cluster.

The panoramic curved display where the cluster and display are connected is standard starting from the Inspiration trim. Additions can be made through Premium to Parking Assist I (KRW 1.23 million).

First of all, the seat material is made of artificial leather. This is the same up to the premium, but the difference is the presence or absence of a pattern. Other than this, it is a basic can option, but the driver’s seat 2-way lumbar support and 2nd row fold & dive seats are applied.

The convenience features are also satisfactory, but…

Convenience features are also relatively diverse despite being a tin trim. Representative examples include button start & smart key, smart key remote start, and electric parking brake (including auto hold).

Besides

Front/rear parking distance warning
rear monitor
ECM rearview mirror

Items with good response from consumers, such as the following, were also applied as standard. One thing that is disappointing is the infotainment part, but the modern trim does not have navigation and uses display audio (Blue Link, phone projection, Bluetooth hands-free, 6 speakers) instead. If you wish, you can add more, and in this case, you can choose Infotainment Navi (KRW 900,000) or Best Selection I (KRW 1.94 million), which includes Comfort I and Hyundai Smart Sense.

The New Tucson Modern trim can be purchased for 27.71 million won for the gasoline 1.6 turbo model without additional options. In summary, even though it is the basic trim, a variety of safety specifications are applied, so prospective owners with a limited vehicle purchase budget may want to consider this trim. However, since advanced driver assistance and convenience features are applied to a minimum, you may need to worry if you consider them important.
