The SUVs from Hyundai
"Here you will find all the latest information about the SUVs from Hyundai: Hyundai Kona, Hyundai Tucson and Hyundai Santa Fe. Hyundai Kona Hyundai is expanding the range of the Kona lifestyle SUV with two modern diesel engines that already meet the Euro 6d-Temp emissions standard, which will only become mandatory in September 2019. In order to comply with the strict Euro 6d-Temp emissions standard, state-of-the-art exhaust gas purification technologies are used for both the gasoline and diesel engines. This is because compliance with the limits is tested according to the new WLTP (Worldwide Harmonized Light-Duty Vehicle Test Procedure) measurement cycle and the RDE (Real Driving Emissions) test, in which exhaust emissions are measured in real driving conditions on the road. Hyundai is therefore equipping all gasoline engines in the Kona with a gasoline particulate filter to reduce soot particles with immediate effect. In addition to the diesel particulate filter and oxidation catalyst, the two new diesels receive an SCR (selective catalytic reduction) system that converts nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions into nitrogen and water by injecting a urea solution to reduce them. Hyundai Tucson The Hyundai Tucson launches in its new, face-lifted version with immediate effect at prices starting at 22,970 euros in Germany. Packaged in a fresh design, the new edition convinces with extended standard equipment and attractive extras. In the course of the extensive model revision, further advanced comfort and safety technologies have found their way into the compact SUV. These include Hyundai SmartSense technologies such as an attention assistant (DAW) and Around View Monitor (AVM), as well as smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and a wireless charging function.
