Highlights on the new 2014 Hyundai Tucson include LED daytime running lights and HID projector headlamps, as well as a choice of two engines.

The most noticeable change to the 2014 Tucson - that arrived in Manitoba Hyundai dealer showrooms at the beginning of November - is the new lighting array.

"The new Tucson has LED daytime running lights and HID projector headlamps," says Murray Hyundai sales rep Mike Shaw. (LED tail lights are optional.) "The new lighting gives the Tucson a more aggressive look on the road."

Shaw notes that, with the 2014 model, Hyundai is giving potential Tucson drivers a choice of 2 engines. The 2.0L GDI DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder - which puts out 164 hp - is standard for the entry-level GLS model.

The SE and Limited models are powered by a 2.4L GDI DOHC 16-valve inline 4-cylinder which produces 182 hp.

Inside, Shaw notes that the gauges have been altered to conform with the Santa Fe and Sonata models. "The gauges now have a uniform look across all Hyundai models," Shaw says.

The Tucson, he points out, has more rear leg room than competing CUVs.

Standard technology includes the integrated Bluetooth hands-free phone system and a 4.3 inch color touchscreen with audio and rearview camera. Among the options is the 7-inch color touchscreen navigation system with a rearview camera, and NavTraffic, which provides real-time road conditions that'll help you avoid traffic jams and give a clear picture of alternative routes.

Shaw reports that the price for the new model ranges from $27,000 (including freight and pdi) for the entry level GLS model to $35,200 for the fully loaded Limited.

"Our customers are excited about the new Tucson," Shaw says. "It offers luxury while still being economical."

New staff at Winnipeg Hyundai

Winnipeg Hyundai has added two tried and true veteran sales reps to its growing staff. Chris Wiesner and Pierre Bourdeau have been working together selling European imports for the past eight years. They joined the Winnipeg Hyundai sales team at the beginning of November.

Both say that they were moved to move to Winnipeg Hyundai because of the product line and because they prefer working for an independently-owned dealership with a family atmosphere.

"You get more personalized service at an independently-owned dealership," Bourdeau says. "We're up front with customers here."

Bourdon says that he sold 20 models in his first month at Winnipeg Hyundai.

Wiesner says that he noticed that a lot of his acquaintances were driving Hyundais. "I am very impressed with the quality and styling," he says of the Hyundai line-up.

New GMs for Birchwood Honda West, Birchwood Kia West

There has been some lateral movement within the Birchwood Auto Group management team. Shane Rankin has returned to Birchwood Kia West as general manager after a stint at the Kia East store on Regent and Greg Flom has moved from the Chev store - where he was general manager - to Birchwood Honda West.

Flom has been part of the Birchwood team for 13 years. He was general manager at the Chev store for the past six years. "It's great to be back in the import world," he says. "I am looking forward to the new challenges."
