Showing information of Hyundai Tucson 2.0 e-VGT 2WD AT GLS - Diesel variant
November 14, 2016: Hyundai India has launched the second generation of the Tucson for India, with prices starting at Rs 18.99 lakh for the petrol variants, and at Rs 21.59 lakh for the diesel. The Tucson will feature a total of five variants and encompass two engine and two transmission options, with the AWD model expected to arrive on Indian shores by April next year. Notably, there is no four-wheel drive variant on offer yet. The SUV will fill the slot left between the Creta and the Santa FE in Hyundai India's lineup. The 2016 Tucson flaunts contemporary vision with the hexagonal grille, dual projector LED headlights and DRLs at the front, 18-inch alloys on the sides and the rear profile offers wraparound tail lamps. Inside, the SUV gathers an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with other niceties offered with the recently launched Elantra. It will be powered by a 185PS 2.0-litre diesel and a 155PS 2.0-litre petrol. The Tucson goes up against the likes of the Honda CR-V and the Skoda Yeti.
Remember the first Hyundai Tucson? You probably won’t. It went away as quietly as it came and in the five years it was around, Hyundai managed to sell only a piffling 1,810 units. The Tucson was one of Hyundai’s rare flops, not because most people struggled to pronounce the name right (it’s not ‘Tuck-son’ but ‘Too-sawn’ after the city in Arizona) but because it was the right product at the wrong time and possibly at the wrong price.

This is the third-generation of the Tucson that was unveiled globally for the first time in February 2015. Like its other siblings, it is also based on the company's Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 (FS2.0) design philosophy, which has been well appreciated in our country. The new Tucson looks quite similar to the Santa Fe and shows off its similar muscular and modern appearance. While the fascia sports Hyundai’s signature hexagonal grille and swept back LED head-lamps with LED DRLs, the side profile w read more 6

Hyundai is having yet another go at the premium SUV space. While previous offerings such as the Terracan, Santa Fe and even the old generation of the Tucson for that matter sank without a trace, the new iteration does pack a lot of promise. More importantly, Hyundai will also be keen on banking upon the resounding success of its mid-sized SUV, the Creta to establish itself as a prominent player in the SUV space. Does the Tucson live up to the hype?
The Tucson does look promising enough to slug it out with the Skoda Yeti and the Honda CR-V which have been struggling to register sales themselves.
"The Tucson on the whole is a well-rounded package that gets the basics right."
It comes across as a logical choice for anyone upgrading from a C-segment sedan or a compact SUV. The Tucson on the whole is a well-rounded package that gets the basics right. It is comfortable, adequately punchy and frugal as well. That said, a few more features and a snazzier cabin would have been welcome. If you are looking for an SUV that is comfortable for the daily office drive as well as a mile muncher on the weekends, the Tucson should be on your checklist!
Of late, Hyundai has been treading a rather unconventional path when it comes to rolling out new cars in India. It launched the new Elantra at a time when all other car makers have been shying away from the segment citing low sales. That gambit appears to have paid off with Elantras being shipped out of showrooms at a rather brisk pace. But barely three months into the Elantra’s launch, Hyundai has executed a similar move by introducing the Tucson – an SUV that sits bang in between the soft-roader pack that is lead by the Creta on one side and the Santa Fe on the other. It’s a space that has been left to Honda’s petrol-only CR-V. Is that down to a lack of interest in the segment or has it been underserved? And is the Tucson good enough to revive it? Also, the challenge is tougher still for the urban Tucson as it sits in a price range that will have it rubbing shoulders with the butch and rugged Ford Endeavour and Toyota Fortuner. So, is this 5-seater SUV really all that impressive for buyers to take the bait?
