2014 Hyundai Tucson unveiled with new engines [video]

Hyundai has announced a series of changes to the 2014 Tucson.

Starting with the exterior, the model gains LED-infused headlights, restyled wheels and optional LED taillights.

Interior changes are more extensive and include additional standard equipment such as a tilt / telescopic steering wheel, illuminated front cup holders, reclining rear seats and Bluetooth connectivity. The model also has revised upholstery and a higher quality instrument panel on SE and Limited variants. Speaking of the Limited, it can be equipped with an upgraded infotainment system that has an improved user interface and a larger touchscreen display.

Under the hood, two new GDI four-cylinder engines replace the previous MPI units. The 2.0-liter Nu GDI produces 164 bhp (122 kW) and 151 lb-ft (204 Nm) of torque, while the 2.4-liter Theta II GDI develops 182 bhp (135 kW) and 177 lb-ft (240 Nm) of torque. Both engines are connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system.

Last but not least, the Tucson has a new Sachs Amplitude Selective Damping (ASD) system that promises to deliver "optimum ride, handling and driving comfort."

The 2014 Hyundai Tucson will go on sale shortly and U.S. pricing starts at $21,450.
