SEOUL, Aug. 7 (Yonhap) -- Hyundai Motor Co. has launched the face-lifted model of its Tucson sport utility vehicle (SUV) in the domestic market to better meet growing consumer demand, the company said Tuesday.

The updated Tucson comes in three versions made up of two diesels and one gasoline motor. The two diesels are a 2.0-liter engine mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a smaller 1.6-liter version with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission. The gasoline variant is driven by a 1.6-liter turbo motor with power going through a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, Hyundai said in a statement.

The company introduced all-wheel drive options for the three new versions, while applying safety features such as front collision avoidance, lane keeping assist and driver awareness warning systems on the vehicle, it said.

The upgraded Tucson sells at the starting price of 24 million won (US$21,000), with the total rising up to 30 million won depending on the trim.

In the January-July period, Hyundai sold a total of 2.58 million vehicles, up 2.9 percent from 2.51 million units a year earlier.
