Hyundai Motor's in-house developed 7DCT system offers a choice between fully automatic operation and sequential manual gear changes, selected with the gear lever for greater driver involvement. The 7DCT provides improved fuel efficiency and lower CO2 emissions compared to a six-speed automatic transmission; emitting 129g of CO2 and offering fuel consumption of 57.6 mpg on a combined cycle. The turbo diesel engine provides a maximum torque of 340 Nm over a wide rev range of 1,750 rpm to 2,500 rpm.
For further efficiency, the new powertrain comes with Hyundai's Integrated Stop & Go (ISG) system as standard, which is also available for the 1.7-litre (116PS), and the 2.0-litre 2WD (136PS) diesel engines as well as the 1.6-litre petrol engine.
The new 1.7-litre CRDi 7DCT powertrain is available to order in the UK now across the Tucson range from SE trim and above.
