Hyundai Tucson 2017 Performance & Safety

EFFICIENT POWER

Those who seek high levels of driving efficiency will immediately love the available engine options in the 2017 Tucson. Choose between the standard 164 horsepower 2.0L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine, or the 1.6L Turbocharged GDI engine. It delivers a powerful 175 horsepower, 195 lb-ft of torque and is mated to a 7-speed Dual Clutch Transmission for optimal performance. With the innovative Drive Mode Select system to choose between different steering and throttle responses, and available All-Wheel Drive system, the Tucson makes it easy to take off for a road trip, or to tackle those errands around town with ease.

The advanced engineering is matched by the confidence of an extensive list of safety innovations. The 2017 Tucson’s available safety features turn technology into tools that help give you added awareness, control and peace of mind.

Peformance Highlights

2.0L GDI ENGINE

The standard 2.0L Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engine delivers 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque, coupled with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The 6-speed automatic offers SHIFTRONIC® manual shifting mode and includes an overdrive lock-up torque converter for higher fuel economy at highway speeds.

ALL-WHEEL GRIP

The available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system delivers 100% of torque to the front wheels during normal road driving and can automatically send up to 50% to the rear wheels, depending on conditions. The system includes a driver-selectable AWD lock that allows a differentiated torque split between front and rear wheels for off-road and extremely slippery road conditions. The system also includes Active Cornering Control which automatically transfers torque to the wheels with the most traction. The system reduces understeer and enhances cornering performance by braking the inside rear wheel and delivering more torque to the outside rear wheel, providing a torque-vectoring effect. Finally, the system incorporates both Hillstart Assist and Downhill Brake Control to assist drivers facing sharp incline or decline conditions.

Safety Highlights

AUTONOMOUS EMERGENCY BRAKING WITH PEDESTRIAN DETECTION2

This available safety innovation uses a forward camera and radar sensors to detect rapidly closing speeds to the vehicle ahead or pedestrians in your path. If a potential forward collision is detected, audible and visual warning notifications will alert the driver. If the driver does not react to avoid the impact, the system can provide full braking assistance at speeds under 80 kilometres per hour (vehicle detection) or under 70 kilometres per hour (pedestrian detection).

2Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB) is designed to detect vehicles that are directly in front of the vehicle. AEB will not detect all vehicles and objects. AEB may not work on winding or hilly roads, during certain weather conditions such as rain, snow, fog and any other times of limited visibility. AEB initiates full braking at speeds between 8 and 80 km/h (vehicle detection) or 8 to 70 km/h (pedestrian detection). AEB will not detect all pedestrians under certain conditions. See Owner’s Manual for detailed descriptions of example conditions in which AEB may not detect a pedestrian. AEB is not a substitute for safe driving. Always check your surroundings when driving. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.

REAR CROSS-TRAFFIC ALERT33

Activated during reverse driving, the available Rear Cross-Traffic Alert system uses radar to help identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side, even before they come into view of the standard rearview camera.

3Never rely exclusively on the Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm rear clearance. There are limitations to the function, detection, range and clarity of the system. The system may not detect every vehicle. This system does not detect stationary objects. Vehicle must be in reverse and has to be traveling at 10 km/h or less. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.

BLIND SPOT DETECTION4 WITH LANE CHANGE ASSIST

The available Blind Spot Detection (BSD) uses radar to detect when a vehicle is in the driver’s blind spot and provides both an audible and visual alert to help keep you aware as you drive. Working in conjunction with BSD, Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of traffic approaching in adjacent lanes to help determine if a lane change is safe.

4Never rely completely on Blind Spot Detection (BSD) and be sure to use proper lane changing procedures. BSD will not detect every object or vehicle and will not prevent accidents. Always look over your shoulder and use your mirrors to confirm clearance. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.

LANE DEPARTURE WARNING SYSTEM55

Drift outside your lane without signalling and this available system is designed to inform you with audible and visual cues.

5The Lane Departure Warning System operates when vehicle speed exceeds 64 km/h and only when the lane markings are clearly visible on the road and detected by the system. It will not prevent loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.

6 AIRBAGS

Every Tucson is equipped with six airbags1 including dual front and front seat-mounted side-impact airbags for front seat passengers and two side-curtain airbags with rollover sensors for both front and outboard rear passengers.

1The Supplemental Restraint (Airbag) System (SRS) is designed to work with the 3-point seatbelt system. The SRS deploys in certain frontal and/or side-impact conditions where significant injury is likely. The SRS is not a substitute for seatbelts, which must still be worn at all times. Children under the age of 13 should be securely restrained in the rear seat. NEVER place a child-seat in the front seat of a Hyundai vehicle.

STANDARD ANTI-LOCK BRAKING SYSTEM WITH ELECTRONIC BRAKE-FORCE DISTRIBUTION

All models are equipped with a standard Anti-lock Braking System (ABS). During abrupt and braking situations, the system automatically applies and releases the brakes several times per second to help prevent tires from slipping due to wheel locking. Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD) can apply more or less braking pressure to each wheel in order to help maximize stopping power while helping to maintain vehicle control.

STANDARD ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL WITH TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM6

Electronic Stability Control with Traction Control System (TCS)6 is designed to sense over-steer and under-steer conditions. During unexpected and dangerous situations, it adjusts the braking power of each wheel utilizing the TCS to help restore the driver’s course.

6Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and Traction Control System are meant to enhance conscientious driving habits and are not a substitute for safe driving practices. ESC cannot control your vehicle’s stability under all driving situations. No system, no matter how advanced, can overcome physics or correct poor driving. Speed, road conditions and driver steering input will affect whether ESC can help prevent loss of control. See Owner’s Manual for further details and limitations.
