The Hyundai Tucson 2019 facelift now can generate more power.

The Hyundai Tucson 2019 facelift has been launched just 2 months ago, simultaneously with the upgraded Honda CR-V’s debut at New York International Auto Show 2018. Now, the good news is that the 183 hp 2.0L turbo-diesel powertrain will be offered a 48V mild hybrid system. It includes a 0.44 kWh lithium-ion battery, a low-voltage DC/DC converter, a mild hybrid starter generator and an inverter, along with a 16 hp electric boost for difficult acceleration.

The engine will work in conjunction with a standard 6-speed manual transmission and a new optional automatic gearbox, driven by a 4-wheel drive system.
