Explore the Major Changes to the 2016 Hyundai Tucson

August 28th, 2015 by

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson has been completely redesigned for the new model year! We know that the Tucson is already a popular model among Oklahoma City, Edmond, and Midwest City drivers, so we have no doubt the improvements that have been made will please our customers that much more. Here’s what you have to look forward to with the 2016 Hyundai Tucson.

More Room

In case the Tucson wasn’t spacious enough already, the team at Hyundai has made some changes to the width and length of the new 2016 Hyundai Tucson. The 2016 Tucson will be 1.1 inch wider and 3.0 inches longer, which will provide greater interior space and cargo volume. Interior volume will peak at 133.2 cubic feet while Oklahoma City, Edmond, and Midwest City drivers will enjoy up to 61.9 cubic feet of cargo room when all the seats are folded.

More Power

An addition to the engine options for the Hyundai Tucson has been included in this redesign. Only the base model will keep the 2.0L four-cylinder engine. All other trims will get the newly added 1.6L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will deliver 175 hp and 195 lb-ft of torque. This engine will be paired to a seven-speed EcoShift Dual Clutch Transmission that will earn up to 33 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg in the city with the Eco trim and front-wheel drive.

More Technology

As safety is one of the top priorities of most drivers, Hyundai has chosen to ramp up the high-tech safety features available on the 2016 Tucson. Features that are standard on the Sport and Limited trims include blind spot detection (BSD), rear cross-rraffic alerts, and lane change assist. Additional optional features on the Limited include lane departure warning (LDW), automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and rear parking sensors. All models come standard with SiriusXM satellite radio, a five-inch color touchscreen, and steering-wheel-mounted audio, Bluetooth, and cruise controls.
