While it remains obvious that the car would be brought in our country over the CKD route by the coming year 2017, this would certainly be a game changing variant from the makers and surely offer uniqueness and revolution in the highly competitive domestic market. Hyundai India is working towards offering the all new Tucson SUV in the native market of our country. The eminent Hyundai Tucson would the brand’s sole SUV offering that is still about to arrive in the country. At the moment, being in its third generation, the latest offering has been showcased at the Geneva Motor Show in 2015 while the car sports eye-catching and fresh layout at the same time it would be the biggest car offered by the brand Hyundai.
Exterior: Folks at the company call it the TL, the latest Tucson acquires the brands large and fresh hexagonal grille at the fore, lengthened headlights that elongate starting from the grille over to the fenders along with the highly styled good looking fog lights carvings that comprise of some really attractive elements. The USV looks strikingly different from the Creta rolled out by the brand, while being laden with curves and poised drawn outlines. The look is amazingly clear when one looks at the side profile of the car that looks catchy and stylish both, making you fall in love with the curves of the SUV. The lengthy bonnet slopes towards the front, quite gently, along with the A-pillar that looks separate from the bonnet that adds on to the length of the car, making it appear well molded and sporty at the same time. The wheel arches appear big and well formed. While talking about the rear of the car, it looks a little inspired by the Santa Fe, but we believe that has been left intentionally to create a brand image that defines bigger cars offered by the brand.
Insides: The moment you step inside the SUV, you might face disappointment as the interiors are not as major as the outsides. The two-part, upper-lower outline of the car appear quite conventional while being over a big eight-inch touchscreen that has been brought in use, while the rest being too ordinary and while nothing as such looks really striking to quote. While the seat upholstery looks pretty premium, soft to touch along with modern elements supplemented to the car such as the automatic parking and a drive mode selector that modifies the car behavior as it performs. Independent Emergency Braking, Lane Keeping Assist and a blind spot assist system are a few technical advances given to the car.
Engine: The all new Hyundai Tuscan gets an option of two diesels units to make your pick from: A 114bhp, 1.7-L mill that is joint with the i30, along with a much heavier 182bhp, 2.0-L stuff that has been given a make-over in order to be functional at Euro VI emission levels. The car is fortified further with dual-clutch transmissions that are out on the petrol models, the diesels acquire a conventional six-speed automatic.
Pricing: Hyundai is probable to trade in the Tucson to begin with, while the car carries a price tag of INR 18 lakh that would permit the car to face the Honda CR-V.
