New, improved Tucson is here

With the latest addition of Hyundai SUVs, Hyundai lovers will be all smiles as the car hits local market. The new and improved Tucson has just a week in Botswana and will be launched on April 7, 2016. The new Tucson is an improvement from the previous model. Hyundai dealer Principal Oupa Nkwe says the new model 2016 Tucson commands a wide range of features that make it a car to drive. The first eye catcher is its new improved design. Safety, comfort and quality also distinguish this small SUV from the rest. Nkwe says the car comes with standard rear view camera. Other features include safety components in the six airbags fitted all around the inside. The all new Tucson is affordable; it comes with the first of its kind warranty.  It has a 7-year or 200.000 kms warranty. It is not every dealership that offers this kind of warranty. In Botswana Nkwe says the SUV comes in two engines being the 2.0 litre and the 1.6 turbo. The 2.0 litre one is available only in 4x2 while the 1.6 turbo comes in both 4x2 and 4x4. Power is also something that the new kid in the Hyundai family commands. The 2.0 litre has maximum power of 115kw @ 6200rpm while 1.6 turbo does 130kw @ 5500rpm. With a very good ground clearance, the car is suited for local terrain of either off-road or on-road, making it a car of choice for its class. Why should people buy this car? Nkwe confidently declares it is the first of its kind in warranty and affordability. The safety, comfort and the economic fuel consumption make the all new Tucson, the car to drive in 2016.
