New Tux for the Tucson

Hyundai’s Tucson mid-size SUV has received a mid-life facelift in an effort to remain the prettiest belle at a very crowded ball. The four-vehicle line-up is opened by the newly named Go variant, with the ActiveX and Elite sitting below the flagship Highlander. The engines carry over unchanged, but the 136kW/400Nm diesel is now mated to a eight-speed automatic transmission instead of a six-speeder. Extra safety tech has been added as standard to the entry-level variants, and interior ambience gets an appreciable lift.
