Hyundai Tucson Sport gains DCT and AWD


Having launched the locally developed Tucson Sport in June, Hyundai has now added a second derivative, but with the flagship Elite serving as a base.

Retaining the same bodykit, quad exhausts and black 19-inch alloy wheels as the Executive spec derived Sport, the Elite version also keeps the 150 kW / 295 Nm 1.6-litre T-GDI engine, but drops the six-speed manual gearbox and front-wheel drive setup for a seven-speed DCT and all-wheel drive.

Succeeding the 2.0 CRDI Elite auto as the new flagship Tucson offering, the newest Sport also builds on the Elite's standard specification, and gets an eight-inch touchscreen display with Bluetooth, satellite navigation, USB and Aux input, rear parking sensors with mirror integrated reverse camera, auto on/off lights and windscreen wipers, cruise control, dual-zone climate control, panoramic sunroof, ABS with EBD and Traction Control, Hill Start Assist and six airbags.

A seven year / 200 000 km warranty and five year / 90 000 km service plan are both included in the Sport AWD DCT's R599 900 asking price.
