2016 Hyundai Tucson Review Release Date, Specs & Info

2016 Hyundai Tucson Release Date, Price, Colors, Specs – The new Tucson vehicle has been announced for release by Hyundai. It is going to be a 2016 model of the Hyundai Tucson brand and it is going to be a fuel cell vehicle. In order to continue revolutionizing this setup and making the most of the new technology that is available to us, Hyundai will continue the production of the hydrogen powered cars and will release them as such without the combination of gasoline or electric hybrid engines.

In order to make the technology available worldwide and popularize it more, the production of these kinds of vehicles needs to be greater. This is the premise of Hyundai and is the main reason they are producing them. The new car will not retain the look of the previous and will not be a mere facelift but it will be a completely new redesign of this car which will help it break through the competition.

The model that is currently available has been released back in 2010 and has not been updated greatly since then. It received only minor updates but left the design old and not furnished for a long time. We are hoping that this new fresh look retains some of the popularity of the Tucson car and makes its fuel cell technology more popular among the users. As you can see from the pictures the design is not a bad one and has the potential to rival the competition like the Ford Escape and the 2016 Mazda CX-5 cars . The review will tell you all the rest that you need to know about the car.

2016 Hyundai Tucson Price and Release Date

2016 Hyundai Tuscon release date

The release date for the new 2016 Hyundai Tucson fuel cell car has yet to be released and we are not sure when it is going to appear. But a sure thing is that it will be a part of 2016 Hyundai lineup so the beginning of next year is a sure guess. The car does not get a price because it will not be available for sale yet. The car will be offered as a lease as previous years and it is going to be available for a price between 3,000 to 5,000 USD per month and an additional fee of 500 for a yearly lease. It will certainly be popular in parts of California where facilities for this type of a car already exist, but some parts in Europe are also considered as being a popular place for the Tucson fuel cell car to evolve.

Interior Changes of 2016 Hyundai Tucson

The inside of the 2016 Hyundai Tucson car is going to remain largely the same. This means that a lot of the current look of the car is going to be carried over and reused. But there is a lot that needs to be remodeled in terms of the technology. This of course concerns the instrument cluster which needs to be remodeled in terms of its look to fit the use of the new fuel cell technology. In order to control and receive information concerned the powertrain, the instrument layout is going to be changed and will be fitted to have a more useful look than before. The standard Tucson model already had a pretty good and comfy inside so there was no need to change and remodel much of it. The comfort levels are good and the car looks pretty contemporary as well. The added fuel cell technology will be the only difference between the standard one, so people who are not familiar with the technology will find it hard to perhaps tell the difference.

Exterior Design

The released spy photos are the first thing that enabled us to see how greatly the exterior part of the Hyundai Tucson has been remolded. At first we witnessed a completely different car and were bemused that this is going to be the 2016 model Tucson fuel cell vehicle. The car now has a similar design to a Santa Fe vehicle and has lost its usual curves. The car incorporates a more boxier design than before and has the result of making the car look bigger and imposing that it was before. The look is a new one and a pretty decent one, it will certainly make the Tucson stand out in the road.

The front fascia is changed completely and is one of the finer parts of the car, making it better and more beautiful as well. With the incorporation of a completely new grille design this makes for the most part of the Hyundai Tuscan update. The base model and the fuel cell Hyundai Tuscan will not different that much. The new design for the 2016 model year is meant for both of them, the badging are going to be different to make the cars apart but the fuel cell car will also have a different set of wheels that will also make a big difference between them.

The new Hyundai Tucson fuel cell car for the 2016 model year is going to be powered by an electric engine that will power the front wheels. This time it is going to get a power boost which will add 110 kW to its performance. Two hydrogen tanks are also going to be fitted inside the car with the updated hydrogen technology for the new 2016 model year. One thank is going to be fitted under the spare wheel while the other is under the car’s chassis, which helps lower the center of gravity for the car.

The specs of the fuel cell vehicle are not that bad at all actually. It enables the car to reach a speed from 0 to 60 mph in 9 seconds. The top speed on the other hand is not a great one as it uses a single speed transmission, but is well on par with other hybrid and hydrogen powered vehicles, like the 2016 Toyota RAV4, for example. With the use of a single speed transmission system and the said powertrain setup the average range on the given batteries is set at 350 mile.
