The same comes with 1.6 liter four-cylinder engine, that produces 175 horsepower with 195 pound-feet of torque, and powered up with seven-speed automated manual transmission system. Hyundai Tucson has All-Wheel-drive, that uses a system which dynamically transmit the torque between the rear axles and the front one.

In order to monitor this driving mode, the new Tucson model comes with an additional corner braking system, which applies break automatically with a little pressure on the wheels when the vehicles is negotiating a turn. Already Subaru has recently applied a similar system like this in some of its vehicles.
