Hyundai Motor in the UK has added a fifth powertrain option to the Hyundai Tucson compact SUV. A 141PS 1.7-litre turbo diesel engine with seven-speed double clutch transmission (7DCT) and two-wheel drive (2WD) is available to order in the UK priced from GBP24,570.

Hyundai says its in-house developed 7DCT system provides improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions compared to a six-speed automatic transmission - emitting only 129g of CO2 and offering fuel consumption of 57.6 mpg on a combined cycle. The turbo diesel engine provides a maximum torque of 340 Nm over a wide rev range of 1,750 rpm to 2,500 rpm.

The new powertrain comes with Hyundai's Integrated Stop & Go (ISG) system as standard, which is also available for the 1.7-litre (116PS), and the 2.0-litre 2WD (136PS) diesel engines as well as the 1.6-litre petrol engine.

The new 1.7-litre CRDi 7DCT powertrain is available to order in the UK now across the Tucson range from SE trim and above.
