New Hyundai Tucson: Connected and caring

- The updated Hyundai Tucson comes with the latest connectivity features to integrate the driver’s smartphone seamlessly while travelling from A to B.

To ensure even greater comfort, Hyundai offers the new 7-inch display audio system supporting Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Bluetooth. Optionally, customers can choose the 8-inch navigation system, which comes with a seven-year free subscription to LIVE services including updated information on weather and traffic. Hyundai’s 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system provides 3D maps to exactly locate the car’s position. The standard version of the new Tucson is equipped with a 5-inch monochrome audio system.

For optimum music enjoyment, Hyundai offers the high-end sound system from audio manufacturer Krell. The Tucson also features a USB port in the centre console, a USB charger in the rear, and a standard wireless Qi smartphone charger.

The new Hyundai Tucson: Safe and reliable in every situation

The new Hyundai Tucson offers advanced safety and assistance systems to comply with the highest European standards. Hyundai’s SmartSense class-leading safety package for the updated Tucson includes Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition (AEB), Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Driver Attention Alert (DAA), Speed Limit Indicator Function and High Beam Assist (HBA). New to the safety package is Hyundai’s Surround View Monitor (SVM) and the Smart Cruise Control (ASCC) with Stop & Go.

Autonomous Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Recognition (AEB)

AEB is an advanced active safety feature that alerts drivers to emergency situations and brakes autonomously if required. Using a front camera, AEB operates in three stages. Stage one provides an initial visual and acoustic warning to the driver. Stage two intervenes to control braking if there is danger of a collision. Stage three applies maximum braking force to avoid a collision, or minimise the damage if a collision is unavoidable.

Driver Attention Alert (DAA)

The new Tucson features Driver Attention Alert, a driver protection feature that monitors driving patterns to help detect fatigued driving and prevent potential accidents. The system analyses various vehicle signals, such as steering angle, steering torque, the vehicle’s position in the lane and driving time. In addition, the driver can adjust a user-selectable setting for the system’s sensitivity. If the system detects inattentive driving patterns, a sound and message on the instrument display panel will alert the driver.

Lane Keep Assist (LKA)

Lane Keep Assist alerts the driver to unsafe movements at over 60 km/h by sensing the car’s position. The Lane Departure Warning (LDW) sounds an alarm before the car moves over white, grey and blue lines. The system warns the driver acoustically and visually before inducing corrective steering to guide the driver back to a safe position.

Speed Limit Indicator Function

The Speed Limit Indicator Function uses the front camera and information from the navigation system to identify road speed signs and display the speed limit in real time. The information is displayed both in the navigation system display as well as in the TFT cluster.

High Beam Assist (HBA)

When switched to automatic mode, High Beam Assist detects both oncoming vehicles and vehicles in the same lane ahead at night as well as changes to low-beam as appropriate, thereby reducing blinding effects on other drivers. When no more vehicles are detected, the system automatically reactivates the high beams, maximising the driver’s range of vision.

Surround View Monitor (SVM)

The Surround View Monitor protects those in and around the vehicle. The system uses camera technology to provide a 360-degree view around the car and display it on the infotainment screen. Hyundai’s newly-developed system avoids hazardous situations and makes manoeuvring in tight spaces easier for the driver.

Smart Cruise Control (ASCC) with Stop & Go

Using front radar sensors, SCC with Stop & Go keeps a constant speed and distance from the vehicle ahead by automatically accelerating and braking. If the traffic comes to a halt, the Stop & Go system applies the brake until the car comes to a standstill and accelerates to the desired speed as soon as the road is clear. If the vehicle stops for longer than three seconds, the driver must activate the system again by the steering wheel controls or by briefly pressing the accelerator pedal. The system operates from 0 to 110 mph.
