The new gen Hyundai Tucson was revealed in India last month, and the Korean carmaker is all set to launch the all-new Tucson in India on August 10. The company began with pre-bookings for the new SUV on July 18, 2022; deliveries will likely begin once the prices are announced. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson takes on the likes of Jeep Compass and Citroen C5 Aircross in our market and is a vast step-up compared to its predecessor. And given the generations update, we will be expecting the ex-showroom prices for the new model to begin with Rs. 21 Lakh and go up to Rs 28 Lakh.
The new Hyundai Tucson boast an all-new adoring the new Sensual Sportiness design language. The SUV looks sharper, and the Hyundai Parametric Jewel Design grille dominates the nose with a darkened chrome finish flanked by L-shaped segmented LED DRLS. The cabin features a split-cockpit look sporting a 10.25-inch touch screen taking centre stage and a second similar-sized free-standing instrument control sitting behind the steering. Hyundai offers a choice of five single-tone and two dual-tone colour options for Tucson.
Moving to the equipment list, the Advanced Driver Assistance System is highlighted. Hyundai is offering level 2 ADAS tech on board the Tucson, with the SUV capable of identifying other cars, two-wheelers and pedestrians in its path and taking avoidance measures. The SUV also packs blind-spot and cross-traffic collision warning and avoidance functions along with the lane keep assist and intelligent cruise control with stop and go. The long creature comforts list includes a 360- degree camera, blind spot monitoring, Bose audio system, BlueLink connected vehicle tech with three years subscription, powered front seats and hands-free tailgate, and heated and ventilated seats among others.
Under the hood, Tucson will be offered two options of engine. First up is the 2.0L, four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine belting out 154bhp and 192Nm of peak torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox as standard. Then is the 2.0L, four-cylinder turbo diesel engine churning out 184bhp and 416Nm of peak torque and is mated to an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
