Hyundai Tucson 0-60 times

Out of all performance specs, nothing but Hyundai Tucson 0-60 times can better speak about the vehicle's temper. While horsepower and torque blow smoke in the eyes, Tucson zero to sixty specs and average time to run a quarter mile are pretty straightforward metrics allowing to compare against its competitors.

Very often there is no chance of doing Tucson 0-to-60 test personally and making conclusions from the experience of the other drivers is the last thing you want.

Conducting a trustworthy test drive requires following a strict methodology that is intended to eliminate the inconsistent circumstances like weather, tires, surface, engine temperature. It is always better to leave it for professionals.


Increase Horsepower

The cold air part is also important in making more power. Cold air is denser and contains more oxygen molecules than warm air does. So if you can get cooler air into your Hyundai Tucson engine, your car will be able to mix more fuel with that air, making more power. Combine that with the more air through the larger and less restrictive filter and intake tube and you can see up to a 15-20 horsepower increase. K&N has even reported an estimated increase of 56.96 horsepower out of the 57-2571 intake for 2007-2009 Shelby GT500!

The Hyundai Tucson is the answer to all those who want a nice SUV with many features and an excellent range of engine spec options, but would not like to spend as much. Perhaps one of the most significant advantages of Tucson is the value that it offers for its money, especially when compared to other SUVs of the segment.

An international team of manufacturers and designers came together to bring the Tucson into existence, and by the refinement and convenience of this car, you can see how all this talent summed up to create this great vehicle offered by Hyundai. Interestingly enough, only four-cylinder engines come with the Tucson. The baseline is a 164ho 2.0-liter, with a 6-speed automatic, which is not advised unless you are counting every penny, for it hasn’t been reported to have a good response, and is not enough power to properly propel this SUV. Moving up you have the 175hp turbocharged 1.6-liter, featuring a 7-speed DCT, which performs much better altogether, though the power supply’s balance could use some more refinement.

On the top end of the spectrum, you get the 181hp 2.4-liter engine; 2018 drive tests report a 0-60 acceleration in 7.9 seconds, and a quarter mile covered in 16.2 seconds at 85.5 mph. All-wheel drive is optional. One entirely different feature of the Tucson’s transmission is that you get optional manual controls; this is not a hybrid system that decides for you and automatically reverts when reaching top rpm, so for those of you who prefer a manual transmission, this is an important feature to bear in mind. Former designs of the Tucson were updated for the 2018 edition and rearranged to be more in line with the style of the Kona and the Santa Fe. The visual style is similar, prominently featuring the 7” or 8” touchscreen on the top.

The infotainment system comes with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity in most trims and had been recognized as one of the best-designed OEM systems in the world. The cabin is comfortable and roomy, and especially with the highest trims, you get luxury details for a price much lower than expected.

From USB chargers and cupholders to a panoramic sunroof and an incorporated navigation system, aside from the basics such as leather upholstery and LED headlights. Heated seats are another noteworthy addition to the comfort of the driving experience. Moving to the back half of the interior, space is still very generous, doors are easy to operate and use, and the seats flip down to triple the standard 513 liters of space in the boot. Perhaps the main advantage of the back seat design is that there is no seven-seat option for Tucson.
