The ‘Active’ replaces the previous ‘Go’ grade and sits below the ActiveX, Elite and Highlander.
Powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine with front-wheel drive and a choice of a 6-speed manual or 6-speed auto transmission, or a 2.0-litre turbo diesel with 8-speed auto and AWD, the new Active features Hyundai’s SmartSense suite with Driver Attention Warning, Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Forward Collision Avoidance Assist (FCA) and Lane Keeping Assist but FCW and FCA are only available on auto transmission-equipped versions and do not include the pedestrian detection feature on the SmartSense suite fitted to the Elite and Highlander.
Rear park assist, 17-inch alloys, a leather-trimmed steering wheel and gear shifter boot, and driver’s one-touch window operation are also items on the Active spec list previously unavailable on the Tucson Go.
The MY20 Tucson ActiveX runs the same choice of engines (2.0 petrol 2WD auto/manual and 2.0 diesel AWD auto) and gets the same SmartSense safety gear as the Active, but like that model, the FCA and FCW are only available on auto transmission versions and no pedestrian detection is fitted.
The ActiveX also adds 18-inch alloys, but deletes this grade’s previous tyre pressure monitoring system.
The upper two Elite and Highlander grades are largely unchanged for 2020, with the Elite available with the 2.0-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel, as well as a 1.6-litre turbo petrol that runs a dual-clutch transmission and all-wheel drive. The top-spec Highlander is available with the 1.6 turbo petrol or 2.0 diesel and is available with AWD only.
Pricing for the MY20 Tucson starts at $29,290 for the 2.0 petrol 2WD manual, with the auto $31,790 and the 2.0 diesel AWD auto $37,090. ActiveX pricing starts at $32,290 and rises to $40,090. Elite pricing starts at $37,850 and rises to $43,150, while Highlander pricing starts at $46,500 (all prices exclude ORCs).
