Hyundai has launched the 4WD equipped variant of its Tucson with a price of Rs 25.12 lakh. The Tucson 4WD will only be available on the top-spec automatic GLS variant. The 4WD System comes with - On Demand 4WD Functioning which automatically implements Rear Wheel Traction Control by assessing road conditions and maintain utmost traction on rough, lose or slippery surfaces, improving stability while cornering.
When driving in this mode the system determines intelligently that there is need for 4WD based on the terrain and the engine driving power automatically get distributed to all 4 wheels without the drivers intervention. TUCSON 4WD system also offers 4WD Lock mode which helps to activate the 4WD function manually based on user demand, resulting in a torque split of 50:50 between front and rear wheels. Advanced Traction Cornering Control (ATCC) is also part of the 4WD. Further the AT GL trims in both petrol and diesel now have Electronic Stability Control (ESC), Vehicle Stability Management (VSM), Hill Assist Control (HAC), Down Hill Brake Control (DBC) and Brake Assist.
