The All New 2015 Tucson | Performance Features
By squeezing more out of every drop of fuel, both Tucson GDI engines deliver everything you ask of them-power, smooth acceleration and economy, without compromise.
Based on driving conditions, the Intelligent Torque Controlled Coupling (ITCC) at the heart of the Tucson's available All Wheel Drive (AWD) system adjusts torque distribution at the push of a button and allows for a 50/50 torque split between front and rear wheels, for better handling and mileage. With increased traction and standard 18-inch wheels on the Limited, the Tucson takes on mud and snow with assurance.
The Tucson GLS 2.0L 4-cylinder engine gets up to an EPA-estimated 29 MPG Highway.* The SE and Limited's 2.4L GDI engine steps up the horsepower to 182 and still delivers an EPA-estimated 28 MPG Highway.* Engines that give you more horsepower and MPG are the key to providing you with a more fuel-efficient crossover.
With up to an EPA-estimated 29 MPG Highway, it's not just the engine that makes Tucson a more efficient vehicle. Active ECO System technology provides improvement in real-world fuel economy. And every Tucson features an Overdrive Lock-up Torque Converter for more efficient fuel economy at highway speeds.
The 6-speed automatic gives you the best of both worlds. You'll have an automatic to deal with city traffic and the SHIFTRONIC® manual shift mode for when you feel the urge to take control.
We're committed to building higher quality vehicles that offer exceptional value, fuel efficiency and performance.
