Two engines in the 2017 Hyundai Tucson in Toronto


Most 2017 Tucson variants come standard with a 2.0-liter GDI 4-cylinder engine that delivers 164 horsepower and 151 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive, this engine can also send its power to all four wheels. Although powerful, the engine is also fuel-efficient with an average fuel economy rating of 9.0 liters per 100 kilometers combined city/highway while all-wheel drive models average 10.2 liters per 100 kilometers.

If you want a bit more of everything, you will turn to the 1.6-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine that delivers 175 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque. This engine is only available with all-wheel drive and comes paired with a dual-clutch seven-speed automatic. The extra gear and tuning of the automatic gearbox make the Tucson 1.6T not only very powerful, but also more efficient than the 2.0-liter engine with an average fuel economy rating of 9.3 liters per 100 kilometers combined.

With 877 liters of cargo space and plenty of other features, the 2017 Hyundai Tucson is the perfectly balanced compact SUV. To learn more, contact us today at Gyro Hyundai!
