Electric cars are evil’ Hyundai union chief warns of future job losses

The front end features the brand's cascading grille bracketed on each side by thin LED daytime running lights above larger LED headlights.

Let's get the most salient details out of the way: The Hyundai Kona Electric will show up in California in the fourth quarter of 2018, and other "ZEV-focused states" will soon follow.

Hyundai Motor also introduced new ways to promote the further spread of fuel cell electric vehicles. The rear gets updated taillights design and the 2019 Tucson gets 18-inch alloy wheels for the SEL trim and redesigned 17- and 19-inch wheels for the other trims levels. On the inside the changes include a new centre dashboard design, air vents, a new rear vision mirror and instrument cluster.

Latest active safety technologiesThe latest Hyundai SmartSense active safety and driving assistance features available in the new Tucson comply with the highest European safety standards: Autonomous Emergency Braking (AEB), Lane Keep Assist (LKA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW) and Speed Limit Indicator Function (SLIF). The auto is also equipped with a new rear taillight as well as a redesigned rear bumper and muffler. Newly available are wireless phone charging and a USB outlet for the second row. According to Hyundai, the engine for the long-wheelbase Santa Fe XL will be a new 2.2-liter turbodiesel-4 rated at 190 hp and 322 lb-ft that should deliver higher EPA fuel-efficiency ratings, though the company hasn't yet estimated those numbers for any of the powertrains.

As is the case with the pre-facelift Tucson, at the entry level is a 130bhp 1.6-litre GDi petrol, while a turbocharged T-GDi offers 175bhp.

The new 2019 Hyundai Tucson gets refreshed for the model year and adds some new technology as well.

The new Tucson features Hyundai's Surround View Monitor, which uses 360-degree cameras for help when parking.

The base engine carries over: a 164-hp, 2.0-liter four that puts out 151 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission.

Inside, the Tucson comes complete with a 7-inch infotainment system offering Apple CarPlay and Android Auto as standard.
