Hyundai Australia is updating its best-selling SUV while using the introduction on the 2020 Hyundai Tucson. Enhanced safety as well as a new entry Active variant headline the update.
The 2020 Tucson now opens using the Active variant, replacing the prior Tucson Go. It will come impressively designed with safety tech, with forward collision warning and avoidance assist (autonomous emergency braking) fitted as standard (automatic only). That is part and parcel of the Hyundai SmartSense safety suite, which also includes driver attention warning and lane keep assist.
Moving about the Elite and Highlander expands this suite to feature city and interurban autonomous emergency braking, with pedestrian detection technology. As opposed to autonomous braking operating between around 8km/h and 65km/h inside the standard system above, this more comprehensive setup, which include radar in addition to a wide-screen camera, operates between 10-80km/h in relation to with the ability to bring your car to your complete stop autonomously.
The system will likely operate the brakes in emergencies at speeds between 81-180km/h, although its aim could be to decrease the harshness of a collision as opposed to the ability to bring your car into a complete stop before any impact.
Forward collision warning in every case operates between 8km/h and 180km/h, supplying the driver an audio and visual warning if the potential collision is detection. These systems have gotten the benchmark safety standard thorough vehicles, and the like systems are included in ANCAP’s strict safety assessments.

The residual range carries over with the 2019 Tucson specification. Talking over the updated model, Hyundai Australia CEO, JW Lee, said:
