Welcome back Tu c s o n

A FAMILIAR name has been revived for Hyundaiís new mid-sized SUV that steps in for the six-year-old ix35, and borrows its styling theme from the Santa Fe.

Base front-drivers come with the choice of 2.0-litre four-cylinder engines, one with direct injection for more go. Tucson also gets a detuned version of Velosterís 1.6-litre GDi turbo, matching its 265Nm but with less power (130kW v 150kW).

Itís available only in AWD models, as is 2.0-litre turbo-diesel.

Trim levels range from Active (not due until September) to Elite and flagship Highlander, the latter picking up 19-inch wheels and various active safety features (auto braking, lane departure warning and blind spot warning).
