The U.S.-spec Hyundai Tucson has been officially presented to the public during the 2015 New York Auto Show and the model will go on sale from July.

Hyundai has pulled the wraps off the U.S.-spec Tucson during the automotive event in the Big Apple, recently. The model in question has received repositioned LED daytime running lights, which have been installed above the fog lights, a similar design to the Santa Fe with the sweptback headlights and the hexagonal radiator grille and that’s about all, compared to its European brother.

Some of the packages available for the crossover include the Connected Care package, adding the SOS emergency assistance, automatic collision notification assistance, enhanced roadside assistance, maintenance alerts, monthly vehicle health report, service link, automated diagnostic trouble code notification, on-demand diagnostics, blue link app, driving information and assurance car care in-vehicle app. The Remote package is coming with remote start with climate control, remote door lock / unlock, remote horn and lights, stolen vehicle recovery / slowdown / immobilization, car finder via mobile app, alarm notification and vehicle safe guards while the Guidance package is coming with destination search powered by Google and destination send-to-car by Google.

The North American version of the model will get two petrol burners, the 2.0 liter unit with 164 HP (121 kW) and 205 Nm (151 lb-ft) of torque, connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission, along with a 1.6 liter turbo with 175 HP (129 kW) and 264 Nm (195 lb-ft) of torque, connected to the 7-speed dual clutch EcoShift transmission. The 2016 Hyundai Tucson will be offered for sale in the U.S. starting from this July and prices will be announced soon.
