2021 Hyundai Tucson undergoes a moose test and passes with a low entry speed
Hyundai Tucson is the brand’s flagship in the Indian market. While Indian consumers are getting the third generation Tucson, the brand unveiled its fourth generation version around the world last year. It is likely to be available for sale in select overseas markets soon. The 2021 Tucson has received mixed opinions for its futuristic looks, but we recently came across a video of it being moose tested. The video was uploaded to YouTube from km77.com. For the test, the evaluators used the hybrid version of the Tucson, which also receives an AWD layout. It made little difference to the results, however.
The test consisted of 10 attempts and the Tucson passed the test with poor marks. Although it was fogged with Michelin Primacy 4 tires, it knocked over a cone on every attempt. In addition, the pronounced understeer made it difficult for drivers to get it on the right lane. In addition, the test unit was the Tucson’s style fairing and was therefore supplied with adjustable dampers. When the sport mode is activated, the dampers have helped to react to the driver’s inputs with a sophisticated attitude.
Drivers managed to enter the slalom course at speeds of up to 77 km / h, but the Tucson passed the test when the entry speed was reduced to 71 km / h. Speaking of safety gear, the 2021 Tucson is getting a ton of it. The list includes motorway assistants, forward collision assistants, lane keeping assistants, warnings for drivers, intelligent cruise control, blind spot monitoring, collision avoidance assistants for rear cross traffic and much more. Hyundai sells the Tucson in 7 color options – Cream White, Shimmering Silver, Phantom Black, Nocturne Gray, Flame Red, Intense Blue, and Amazon Gray.
The 2021 Hyundai Tucson will go on sale with a 2.5-liter gasoline engine and a 1.6-liter hybrid power plant. The 2.5 liter naturally aspirated engine offers an output of 187 hp and a maximum output of 247 Nm. The 1.6-liter hybrid setup, on the other hand, makes 227 hp at 350 Nm. Both engine options come standard with an 8-speed automatic transmission. The Tucson has the option of an AWD layout as well as 7 driving modes: Eco, Smart, Comfort, Mud, Sport, Snow, Smart and Snow.
