Currently in its third generation which was introduced back in 2015, the Hyundai Tucson comes equipped with a variety of engine & transmission options ranging from 1.6L, 2.0L and 2.4L petrol, and 1.6L, 1.7L and 2.0L diesel matched to 6-speed manual, 6-speed auto, 8-speed auto and 7-speed DCT depending on the market where its offered.
