Tucson XRT: a crossover that wants to become an SUV


Following the Hyundai Santa Fe, the “off-road” version of the XRT received the Tucson. The crossover in this version is distinguished by darkened optics, black moldings and side mirrors, exclusive design wheels, footrests, crossbars for roof rails and a towbar. The XRT trim is based on the second SEL trim and can only be combined with a non-hybrid powertrain. The drive can be front or full. Price – from 32 625 to 34 125 dollars.

The current Hyundai Tucson is available to Americans in four trim levels: SE – $ 25,350, SEL – $ 26,650, N Line – $ 30,750, and Limited – $ 34,850. The XRT version is based on SEL and complemented by the Convenience package: 10.25-inch digital instrumentation, wireless charging, electric tailgate, dual-zone climate control plus panoramic roof. Externally, the differences are reduced to the “off-road” decor and 19-inch wheels of an exclusive design.

Tucson XRT has more unpainted plastic around the perimeter. Changed overlays for the front and rear bumpers, tinted headlights and lamps. The equipment includes side steps, crossbars for roof rails and a tow bar. The interior is completely black, with fabric seat upholstery and a black headlining. Under the hood – a petrol “aspirated” 2.5 GDI with a capacity of 190 horsepower and 241 Nm of torque, paired with an eight-speed automatic Shiftronic. Tucson XRT with front-wheel drive will ask for $ 32,625, with full HTRAC – $ 34,125.
