The all new Hyundai Tucson has completed the last steps of quality assurance testing.

In recent months, the all new Tucson has been developed and tested in Europe, performing accelerated durability tests and dynamic testing on the most demanding race track in the world, the famous Nurburgring Nordschleife.

The new Tucson was subjected to trailer testing in the Alps
Rigorous testing on public roads was also conducted throughout Europe, from the coldest winter testing conditions in Sweden to trailer testing in the Alps and hot weather testing in the south of Spain to ensure that the high expectations of European customers are met.

Throughout the testing process on a dedicated proving ground in the Czech Republic, the Tucson had to prove its quality in extreme conditions and was put through its paces in various scenarios.

As a true SUV, the four-wheel drive system, torque distribution, clutch controllability and torque build up at low speeds were tried and tested under different conditions. This thorough testing enables customers to take the all new Tucson on to difficult terrain with confidence.

Features such as the parking brake, Autohold assistant and Downhill Brake Control were also tested on inclines from between 30% to 45%
On challenging roads, for example, Hyundai engineers verified the overall body structure rigidity, opening all doors, tailgate and panorama roof with two wheels on the ground and two wheels diagonally in the air. The doors were closed without any problems during this challenge, confirming the vehicle's body rigidity.

Engineers also drove the vehicle into water to check that features such as the underbody covers and wheel guards would hold properly after driving in water, even at high speeds. The model was examined to ensure that it could easily ford water up to a depth 30cm.

The parking brake, Autohold assistant and Downhill Brake Control also had to prove their durability on steep hills with inclines between 30% to 45%.

The digital world premiere of the all new Tucson will take place at 8:30am Singapore time on 15 September 2020 and can be viewed on Hyundai's social media channels.
