Hyundai's 2016 model year line-up continues to aspire in the goal of being considered both premium-grade and affordable. Leading the charge of Hyundai into 2016 is an all-new third-generation Tucson crossover. Riding on a wheelbase that is one inch longer than the previous model, the 2016 Hyundai Tucson applies the brand's so-called Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language first shown on the Genesis last year. The sleeker new Tucson includes larger interior dimensions, an available Smart Power Liftgate and a dual-clutch transmission. In California, drivers can lease the hydrogen-powered 2016 Hyundai Tucson Fuel Cell capable of traveling up to 265 miles.
Hyundai's focus on gasoline-electric powertrains grows in 2016 with the production of an all-new Sonata Hybrid. Conforming to the stylish new Sonata shape introduced last year, the hybrid version is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and an electric motor fed by a more efficient battery pack. For 2016, the conventional line of Hyundai Sonata sedans receives suspension upgrades and a seven-inch touchscreen audio display featuring Android Auto.
In the case of the 2016 Elantra, Hyundai's reputation in providing value to motorists is fortified. The all-new Value Edition Elantra sedan adds up to $1,000 worth of stand out equipment such as heated front seats and a sunroof. Adding availability of a dual-clutch transmission for 2016, the Hyundai Veloster line-up features a new Rally Edition model employing a sport-themed suspension and RAYS lightweight alloy wheels. With the low price Accent models, trim level identification changes with GLS and GS being replaced by SE Sedan as well as SE Hatchback naming.
