A quick look at the 2018 Hyundai Tucson
Following a full redesign in 2016, the Hyundai Tucson was well received worldwide. It is considered by many as one of the best, if not the best, compact SUV currently available on the market today. The 2018 Hyundai Tucson is a very popular choice on Oman roads, and there are very good reasons why.
The Tucson’s freshly redesigned exterior is sure to attract a lot of people who are looking for something new. While it is significantly bigger than previous Tucson models, the 2018 model manages to look sharper and more dynamic thanks to its aggressive yet stylish looks. It is one of the more attractive cars on the road today, and that is no exaggeration.
While the exterior has all the cutting-edge stuff, the interior is arranged in a little more understated manner. Both the front and rear seats can accommodate even the tallest people with ease, though it could have been better if both front and rear seats are fully adjustable. As for the rest of the interior, Hyundai kept things simple. While some may not like the abundance of plastic and other cheap materials on the interior, it’s more than made up by the simplistic yet effective placement of buttons and switches.
The Tucson comes with a number of standard features that make driving more enjoyable and safe. A 5-inch display comes standard with the Tucson, though it can be upgraded into an 8-inch unit in some trim options. Standard safety equipment included with the Tucson include anti-lock disc brakes, traction and stability control, airbags, and hill descent control.
There are 2 engine options available for the 2018 Hyundai Tucson in Oman. The entry-level engine is a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with a maximum output of 154 horsepower. The more premium engine option is a 2.4-liter engine with a maximum output of 173 horsepower. A six-speed automatic transmission is available for both motors. Standard models get front-wheel drive, but the higher-end models get 4-wheel drive and the better multi-condition capabilities that come with it.
The 2018 Hyundai Tucson is one of the most impressive small crossovers available in Oman showrooms at the moment. With great styling, superior practicality, and impressive performance, this is the kind of crossover that any fan of the segment will love to have.
