The range may start at around £22,000 but it's very easy to spend an awful lot more. That price gets you entry level 'S Connect' trim with the non-turbo 1.6 petrol engine. Spend another £2,000 or so and you can opt for the 1.6 CRDi diesel. The top petrol unit, the 177PS 1.6 T-GDi turbo unit, prices from just over £25,000. There are 'S Copnnect', 'SE Nav', 'Premium' and 'Premium SE' trim options on offer. The bigger 2.0-litre diesel now comes only with the top 'Premium' trim levels, 4WD, 7DCT auto transmission and the brand's 48V mild hybrid technology, hence prices starting from around £33,000.
Across the range, this improved Tucson gets an increased number of safety features, with Autonomous Emergency Braking and Lane Keep Assist standardised across all trim levels, as well as Driver Attention Alert - which is standard on 'SE Nav' trim and upwards. As for the general kit tally, well even the base 'S Connect' variants get quite a lot. Expect a 7" display audio including a DAB tuner along with 'Apple Car Play' and 'Android Auto' smartphone-mirroring. Plus a rear view camera, climate control, Bluetooth connectivity with steering wheel controls and a leather steering wheel and gear knob. Exterior enhancements include 16" alloy wheels, front fog lamps and automatic headlamps.
