Hyundai tucson. Обновлённый кроссовер в народных версиях подорожал на 30–60 тысяч: за базовый переднеприводный Tucson с атмосферной «четвёркой» 2.0 просят 1 399 000 рублей, а самая ходовая версия Lifestyle с тем же мотором и полным приводом обойдётся в 1 649 000.

The updated crossover in folk versions has risen by 30-60 thousand: for the base front-drive Tucson with the atmospheric “Quartet” 2.0 please 1 399 000 rubles, and the most popular version of Lifestyle with the same engine and all-wheel drive will cost 1 649 000.

The term “facelift” is no accident came in the automotive industry of medicine. One of the oldest principles of medical ethics — “do no harm” — is quite fair and for the designers working on the restyling. Especially if their hand — Tucson, the Hyundai purchased in Europe, one of the most popular compact crossovers in the USA. Even in Russia during the first half of 2018 sold more than ten thousand cars! It is not surprising that this time cost minimally invasive surgery.

Changes in Tulane not too big, so the video this time — in an experimental format propagation. All the most important thing for a couple of minutes.

Thanks to the easy cosmetics and the updated Tucson has freshened up to a further three years was enough, and the pre-reform car turned into a pumpkin. A little more predatory became squint headlights — primarily due to the failure of lens in favor of a fully diode optics have top versions. The radiator grille has become a full hexagon, and the bumper got relief podshtampovki, supplemented with L-shaped running lamps. The back — on the contrary: the plastic is smoothed, and the shape of the lights softened the spirit of the late biodesign.

Led lights only is based on all-wheel drive cars in high trim levels, starting with the execution of Dynamic…

The interior has changed substantially. In the first place because seriously redesigned the architecture of the front panel. Multimedia display stands over her now like a trendy tablet, and framed the screen from the sides of the deflectors sprawled beneath him. Evolutionary in its essence the change felt like a radical renewal. A little different was the location of the keys on the center console.

…same story with the leatherette on the front panel and the combination of natural with artificial leather on the seats. The car with the base two-liter “aspirated” and the trim as pictured is not less than 1 849 000 rubles.

The devices remained intact, and it was good. Their informative and neutral white illumination had no issues.

It is important to note that the most popular market for versions of 150-strong “aspirated” 2.0, nothing has changed. On the one hand, and the following is enough to justify a price increase up to 60 thousand rubles. On the other — updated Tucson rides better than before. The motor is also sluggish at lower levels, and peak 192 N•m develops at 4000 rpm no matter How precious — this frisky crossover will not be called. Even on the passport he needs to 11.8 with to disperse hundreds with all-wheel drive.

Cushion is a bit short, modest lateral support, profile unremarkable — but you can sit for a very long time.

Tucson also prefer a smooth highway, where it seems quite comfortable and she handles well with a synthetic effort. However, the waves are highly prone to the buildup, and have to go to the broken road — getting out of the passenger entity in the chassis. On medium bumps strong shaking occurs. Besides suspension works with clear sound and large potholes digesting at the limit of intensity. Here, the idea is that something worth to work in the first place — but no.

Test cars do not soften the blow with the base 17-inch wheels. All the large discs with a diameter of 19 inches and low-profile tires Hankook Ventus S1 evo2 SUV dimension 245/45. Shoes 16 size no longer available.

Older versions of Dynamic, equipped with a touch screen diagonal of eight inches (left), NAV c display traffic when connected to the phone via Wi-Fi. In the database — a seven-inch touch screen (right). Both systems are compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

The main technical upgrade is considered to be the eight-speed automatic for the 185-strong version with two-liter diesel engine, which for six months, bought 249 people (ten thousand!). Although it was previously the most preferred for ease of traction control. Six-speed box just sinned jerks when switching. Now the torque Converter poblaciones earlier and more often, the responses are better, the gear changes seamless.

Because of the stiffer springs Tucson diesel keener responds to the little stuff. But confident the gasoline is kept in a wavy way where the sin buildup.

The main advantage of the rear sofa wide adjustment range of the backrest. Landing in the Executive relaxed with the growth of 182 cm, I have enough overhead space. But the legs — butt.

The power range is extended by ten percent in both directions, which also promises better dynamics and great fuel efficiency. Claimed consumption decreased by 100-200 ml/100 km depending on certification cycle, but the passport acceleration to 100 km/h remained the same at 9.5 C.

Transverse rolls are small. The deviations of steering the car responds without delay, rotates willingly, not his face. Well worth it for smooth high speed arc.

But Hyundai is trying to adjust the demand by reducing the input price of diesel crossover to 100 thousand rubles to 1 769 000. At first glance, it is not much more expensive than the popular gasoline version of the 2.0 AWD Lifestyle for 1 739 000. But compared to her diesel for the money quite a goal. A well-equipped Tucson 2.0 D Dynamic would cost 1.97 million

System of automatic braking has been successfully demonstrated on the dummy. In a complex Smart Sense also includes adaptive cruise control, a withholding system in the lane, automatic high beam control and blind spots. But all this is for version 2 139 000.

The unpopularity of petrol-top version with a turbo 1.6 T-GDi (108 pieces for six months), it seems that no one is confused. Although she once predicted up to a third of sales. The base for it is the performance Dynamic, and rose 177-horsepower machine is stronger than the other: just starting from 1.9 million For what?

The trunk is a good, capacious: L. 488-1478 of the Back parts are formed in the horizon, under the raised floor — full-size spare wheel on the fifth alloy wheels.

Even though it is the fastest Tucson in the range (for 9.1 s to 100 km/h on the passport), but not the most pleasant to operate because of the lame “robot”, which did not wait for the updates. When alternating loads box can be transfer. This is particularly noticeable on the background of the new “machine”. Only in sport mode is established good relationship with the torque motor. But the city is so inconvenient: on accompanied by jerks, the revs too high, and the box even more confused…

Acoustic comfort is good for city speeds. On the highway it all depends on the asphalt coating on the coarse tyre roar starts to pester after 100 km/h.

It often happens that the planned upgrade is beyond the scope of the definition of “restyling”, but Tousana not the case. The most popular atmospheric modification the Koreans have done it a restyling. Even new equipment seems complex security Smart Sense can appreciate only buyers of expensive versions of High-Tech, and there for six months, have accumulated less than 350. All of this — note the authors of reviews in the style of “suspension not ice — wait for the facelift, when will correct the shortcomings.”

Tucson is based on the modernized chassis of its predecessor ix35 ― McPherson front and memorycache back. During the restyling of chassis changes has not undergone. Clutch rear axle differential ― company WIA Magna Powertrain.

In the power structure of the body 51% of high-strength steels and 102 m of adhesive joints. The result is a five-star rating in crash tests by Euro NCAP maximum rating and Top Safety Pick+ in overseas test Institute IIHS.

Have aluminum engine Nu 2.0 MPI crankshaft is offset from the axis of the cylinders for the sake of reducing friction. The applied low-noise timing chain, shifters installed on the intake and exhaust, changing the length of the intake tract.

Supercharged “four” 1.6 T-GDI Gamma family was submitted in October 2011. There is direct fuel injection, twin scroll turbocharger, the intake tract of variable length shifters on the issue. Pair turbo engine is exclusively double clutch “robot” with two “dry” couplings.

Aluminum four-cylinder turbodiesel Euro 5 R-series with the piezoelectric injector working pressure of up to 1,800 bar debuted in 2009 at the last Tulane. In 2013 was modernized. Now you’ll be a lightweight engine block, optimized variable geometry turbocharger, improved cooling systems and exhaust gas recirculation, and oil variable displacement pump.

Eight-speed hydromechanical “automatic” own development for FWD models Hyudai and Kia debuted the Kia Cadenza sedan. Box as compact as a six-speed, with a 3.5 kg lighter, and the power range is extended by ten percent. For the sake of fuel economy significantly decreased in size oil pump. The control valve (there are now 12 instead of 20) modernized, which reduced the time of switching.

Behind the scenes

On the Federal highway M4 I passed on the adaptive cruise control practically unmanned. Deceived restraint system in the band, downloading the handlebars bottle. The machine thinks it’s the severity at the hands of the driver. Don’t do it! On most local roads of the Voronezh region the wheel just will not release. But there are places with spectacular views.

Making “minor” accident: car damage “scans” smartphone

Holiday sale landing page at Car Toys with Gift Ideas and sale items

This will allow customers of insurance companies not to describe the “trauma” of the machine on paper. So, the placing of such accidents will be reduced.

Mobile application for the registration of road accident without victims want to associate with the system of electronic PTS. The creation of this database is now engaged in “daughter” of the state Corporation “rostec”, JSC “Electronic passport”. Apparently, the owners who in the future wants to be able to quickly draw a “small” accident will have to change paper ID on sprts designed at his own expense.

As reported by “Izvestia“, issue electronic certificates for previously registered cars will be the operators of inspection. For this they need to be using a special app to take a picture of the vehicle identification numbers, actually the machine itself (this will prepare the standards), and also scan the documents for the car. This information is sent to the traffic police, where it is checked against the database. While the new mobile app is being tested and will soon be tested with the office.

Recall sprts designed will become mandatory for all new cars from November 1, 2019. However, if desired, manufacturers can issue such a passport now. It is important that car owners with paper passports, no one forcibly will not be forced to receive electronic and, therefore, to arrange an accident for an updated simplified scheme.

Tensed women looking at damaged cars on road against clear sky

System design of a “minor” accident with electronic VRC to assume that in the event of an accident without victims, the driver only needs to photograph the damage using a special mobile application. Then the system will automatically match the original images (obtained from the registration sprts designed) with those made after the occurrence, and fix the damage.

For the first time, the app will also be able to bind to the “emergency” to the images location. Later, the developers want to add the function to fix the distance between the vehicles position relative to the various stationary objects (buildings, traffic lights, etc.). This will allow insurers to “see” the scene, and the drivers will save from filling of documents – notices – by hand.


The so-called “unlimited Euro Protocol” will introduce throughout the country on 1 October 2019, until maximum limits on payments – 400 000 –there are only four regions: in the capital of Russia, Saint-Petersburg and in Moscow and Leningrad regions. In the remaining regions of the country in case of registration of the accident under the simplified scheme, the size of the payment does not exceed 100 000 rubles.

Now its own app – “the accident.Evroprotokol” have with the Russian Union of motor insurers (RAMI). It is also possible to remove car damage after an accident and send to the insurer, however, has no function of comparison with the original state of the machine. Besides remains a requirement for completing by hand the documents to the insurance company.

Recall from the end of July this year, the app allows PCA to issue an accident on evroprotokol without the participation of the traffic police even with differences between participants. However, other requirements remain the same: only two drivers, all have a valid contract of insurance, there are no victims and no damage to the property of third parties.

Volvo will bring to Los Angeles the mysterious development

CA-EN: Auto Europe Car Rentals - Car Rental Insurance Guide - brought to you by Auto Europe **CANADIAN RESIDENTS**

Leonid Popov, 1 hour ago. Photo: Volvo,,,

The words “It’s not a phone” suggests that at the show the company will bring some more, but with the phone it will be connected. In all senses.

The Swedes published the unusual teaser news which was prepared for the motor show in Los Angeles. The idea of the message — “you think You see the phone, but the reality is…”, and then you can try to think logically. Gradual evolution autopilot on production machines Volvo and experiments with fully Autonomous movement, as well as the latest unmanned concept 360c indicate that to find the answer you need in this area. With the smartphone can be connected for remote control of the machine from the outside, including the traffic on the Parking lot. The same smartphone is associated with a mobile service, for example, call a taxi (in the future — Autonomous). And also the phone as the key to keep in mind.

The pipe and the inscription “This is not a pipe” — a famous painting by surrealist artist Rene Magritte’s “the Treachery of images,” written ninety years ago. Technically the author is right: it’s not the tube and the picture tube. However, the message caused a wave of philosophical discussion going so far. About a wave of imitations and say nothing, Volvo America did not open.

Still, it is worth remembering that the Swedes should prepare the audience to the emergence of crossover Volvo XC90 next generation. He seems in 2020-2021 years, but production vehicles we are likely to see the concept. And in the “nineties” the developers have promised autonomy to the fourth level, which is already preparing the soil (developed a prototype of a powerful onboard computer, signed an agreement with Baidu on a joint development of the theme of the drones). In General, the artistic allusion makes the audience’s imagination. Here Volvo has clearly learned from Magritte. By suspicious coincidence, the painting “the Treachery of images” is in the County Museum of art Los Angeles.
