Hyundai’s flagship SUV in India has finally received an update. But how different is it from the its predecessor

Hyundai has launched the Tucson facelift in the country after showcasing it at the 2020 Auto Expo earlier this year. The carmaker’s flagship SUV gets a minor facelift with new BS6 engines and updated features. Let’s take a closer look to see just how different the 2020 Tucson is from the model it has replaced:

Wheelbase

Boot space

  • Given that this is simply a facelift, the proportions of the Hyundai Tucson remain largely unchanged. 

The only difference is the 5mm increase in length, which is a result of its cosmetic updates.

Exterior

  • The Tucson facelift is a mild one with the biggest change being the revised front fascia.

  • It gets a new cascading grille, front bumper and penta projector LED headlamps (5 LED projector units) and LED taillamps.

  • The 2020 Tucson also features a new design for its 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels and the dual-exit exhaust tips.

  • The rear end has been tweaked as well with a new rear bumper and the rear reflectors are now positioned much higher and is split-housed on the tailgate itself.

Interior & Features

  • The cabin of the facelifted Tucson gets an all-black interior as opposed to the outgoing model’s dual-tone beige and black cabin.

  • It has a redesigned dashboard with central AC vents positioned below the new free-standing 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The climate control panel seems unchanged.

  • Its auto-dimming IRVM gets added buttons for the Hyundai BlueLink connected car technology features.

  • In the Tucson, BlueLink allows the owner a series of remote functions such as engine start/stop, cabin pre-cooling and door lock/unlock. It also features voice command capabilities for many functions.

  • The top Hyundai SUV offering in India continues to get features like premium leatherette upholstery and a panoramic sunroof.

  • It also continues to offer comforts like wireless charging, drive mode select, an electronic parking brake and adds a tyre pressure monitoring system to the LCD multi-information display in the instrument cluster. Yes, the Tucson misses out on a digital instrument cluster.

  • The new Tucson features an 8-speaker Infinity premium sound system which is an upgrade over the outgoing model’s 6-speaker sound system.

  • Hyundai continues to offer the Tucson with 6 airbags, front and rear parking sensors, vehicle stability management, downhill brake control and electronic stability control as part of the safety equipment. Since the deletion of the entry-level variants, these features (apart from front parking sensors) are now standard in the new Tucson.

Hyundai has not changed the engine lineup for the facelifted Tucson and still offers it with 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines, albeit with updates to meet BS6 norms.
