The crossover goes on sale in the USA in the first half of next year as a 2022 model. For America, both hybrid modifications (HEV adn PHEV), and a long-wheelbase version will be available. The latter is taller, wider and longer than the outgoing Tucson.
The long-wheelbase Hyundai Tucson will be on sale in Canada, Russia, Africa and China too.
The short-wheelbase variant, in its turn, goes to Europe and Mexico. This month, sales start in South Korea. Moreover, the company will globally offer an N Line variant.
The new Tucson comes with a Smartstream 2.5-liter 187-hp, four-cylinder, direct-injection gasoline engine or a 1.6-liter 227-hp, direct-injection hybrid or plug-in hybrid unit with a turbocharger, paired with CVT.
12 powertrain configurations will be available worldwide, including diesel ones in selected markets.
