Latest News: In an evolutionary year for Jeep, the new plug-in hybrid Renegade and Compass will make their Italian debut at the Salone dell'Auto in Turin. Visitors to the Parco del Valentino will be able to admire these new models while listening to the sights and sounds of the natural world around them, as the Renegade takes its first on-road appearance. International on-road debut of the New Jeep Renegade Plug-In Hybrid The Turin event marks the first on-road appearance of Renegade with plug-in hybrid technology (PHEV). The new SUV will set off from Piazza Vittorio Veneto on a parade around the city centre. Both the Renegade and Compass emit less than 50g/km CO2 and are even more fun to drive courtesy of the smooth acceleration and engine response. They are both fitted with plug-in hybrid propulsion systems, and batteries which can be recharged by the internal combustion engine or from an external power outlet and, as a consequence, can store an impressive amount of electric energy. This combination translates into a pure electric range of approximately 50km and a top speed of approximately 130km/h in full electric mode for both Renegade and Compass. The electric units work in synergy with the new 1.3-litre turbo petrol engines to increase efficiency and power overall. The combined action of the two propulsion systems produces up to 240hp. The off-road benefits of hybrid propulsion The high torque of the electric motor, and the ability to adjust it with extreme precision during initial acceleration while driving on the most challenging terrain, will further improve the legendary capability of the Jeep range. Thanks to the new electric all-wheel-drive technology (eAWD), traction to the rear axle is not provided by a prop shaft but through a dedicated electric motor. This allows the two axles to be separated and to control the torque independently in a more effective way than a mechanical system.

TUCSON 1.7-LITRE HIGH-POWERED DIESEL WITH 7-SPEED DCT IS NOW AVAILABLE FOR UK ORDER : 

Hyundai Motor UK’s best-selling model, the Hyundai Tucson compact SUV, is now offered with a fifth powertrain option. A dynamic and efficient 141 PS 1.7-litre turbo diesel with seven-speed double clutch transmission (7DCT) and two-wheel drive (2WD) is available to order in the UK priced from £24,570 OTR for the SE trim, rising to £29,695 for the Premium SE derivative.

Hyundai Motor’s in-house developed 7DCT system offers a choice between fully automatic operation and sequential manual gear changes, selected with the gear lever for greater driver involvement. The 7DCT 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.

For further efficiency, 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 Tucson is one of the safest vehicles in its segment and received the maximum five-star Euro NCAP safety rating. It benefits from a solid body structure featuring 51% of ultra-high strength steel for improved torsional rigidity and impact resistance and a host of innovative passive and active safety features like Autonomous Emergency Braking with pedestrian recognition that can stop the car automatically if a crash is predicted. The Tucson’s list of safety features also includes a Blind Spot Detection alerts the driver to approaching vehicles, Rear Cross Traffic Alert which scans a 180-degree area behind the vehicle alerting the driver if there is approaching cross-traffic and the Lane Keep Assist System applying steering correction in case of unintended lane departure. Additionally the Active Hood cushions the impact shock in case of a frontal collision.

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.
