Hyundai Motor Co. on Tuesday launched the "Extreme edition" of the Tucson sport-utility vehicle fitted with premium features as part of its effort to strengthen its lineup.
The 2.0-liter, diesel-powered Tucson SUV's exterior contains a dark chrome radiator grille, dual twin-tip mufflers, a rear skid plate, 19-inch wheels and front disc brakes that can allow drivers to hit the road with confidence, the company said in a statement.
In terms of interior features, red-brown color leather seats and a black dashboard accent line add a premium look to the Extreme version of the Tuscon SUV, it said.
The Extreme Tucson mated with a six-speed automatic transmission sells at 29.3 million won ($26,000) in the domestic market. Other 2.0-liter Tucson diesel models are priced at 24-30 million won depending on features.
The regular face-lifted 2017 Tucson SUVs are fitted with a 1.7-liter diesel engine or 1.6-liter gasoline turbo engine. They are equipped with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission and are available in local dealerships for less than 28 million won.
