Turbo + DCT Replaced With NA & 6A

Turbo + DCT Replaced With NA & 6A

The more things change…

The Motor Trend 2017 Hyundai Tucson long term review made this observation:

There weren’t many complaints about the Tucson’s driving experience when traffic flows smoothly, but when you find yourself in stop-and-go traffic, things start to get awkward thanks to the tuning of the seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission. When combined with the sluggish throttle response, the gearbox was clunky in traffic because it tries to hold the highest gear it can get away with even in gridlock, causing it to feel like it’s going to stall. Heavy traffic is where you also notice the transmission getting confused and hunting through gears. All is not lost ,though, thanks to the 175-hp 1.6-liter turbo-four. It produces 195 lb-ft of torque at low revs, so the transmission rarely needs to downshift to get you some passing power. The engine itself is smooth and has plenty of pep for the average consumer.

Near the end of our loan period, Hyundai introduced the refreshed 2019 Tucson. In the update, the 1.6-liter turbocharged I-4 and seven-speed twin-clutch automatic have been replaced with a 181-hp 2.4-liter I-4 paired to a conventional six-speed automatic. The 2019 Tucson gets revisions inside and out; among the additions are full LED headlights, adaptive cruise control, and a 360-degree camera, features that were originally not available on this model. There are also two additional USB ports, so you don’t need to compromise passenger charging in favor of CarPlay usage.

During its time with us, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson proved to be reliable; we never had a major issue.…erdict-review/…nt-apparently/
