The four-wheel-drive system is available exclusively with the range-topping diesel automatic trim, which was previously a front-wheel-drive model. The Tucson’s prices have also significantly gone down across the variant lineup and surprisingly Hyundai is staying tight-lipped about it!

Hyundai has finally introduced the four-wheel-drive version of its flagship SUV, the Tucson, in India. It is priced at Rs 25.19 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi) and is based on the range-topping diesel automatic trim, GLS, of the SUV. The front-wheel-drive diesel GLS auto has now been replaced by this 4WD model. Bookings for the same are now underway.

Prices (ex-showroom, New Delhi)

  • Hyundai Tucson AT GLS (discontinued): Rs 24.71 lakh  
  • Hyundai Tucson 4WD AT GLS: Rs 25.19 lakh 

So, for a premium of nearly Rs 48,000, Hyundai is offering a 4WD system with the Tucson, which is not bad at all! The Tucson’s arch rival, the Jeep Compass, offers a full-spec diesel 4x4 option for Rs 21.37 lakh (ex-showroom, New Delhi), which makes it cheaper by over Rs 3.80 lakh. However, the Compass is a manual 4x4 offering and its automatic is expected next year but since the window is wide (Rs 3.80 lakh+), the Compass diesel auto 4x4 is likely to have a price advantage as well.

Drivetrain features 

The 4WD model is pulled by the same 2.0-litre diesel engine (185PS/400Nm) and is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. Like its rivals, the Tucson comes with an on-demand 4WD system, which automatically sends power to rear wheels by assessing road conditions to improve traction. There’s a ‘4WD Lock’ mode as well, which splits the torque in a 50:50 ratio between front and rear axles. 

Besides this, Hyundai now offers additional safety features in the petrol and diesel GL trims, which were earlier exclusive to the GLS trim (not available with the petrol). Both the variants now feature: electronic stability control (ESC), vehicle stability management (VSM), hill assist control (HAC), downhill brake control (DBC) and brake assist.

The Hyundai Tucson prices have also gone down across its variant lineup, despite it now offering more in its GL and GLS trims. The Jeep Compass effect?  

Petrol (ex-showroom, New Delhi)

Variants Old Prices New Prices Difference
Manual Base Rs 18.79 lakh Rs 17.99 lakh Rs 80,000
Automatic GL Rs 21.64 lakh Rs 20.99 lakh Rs 65,000

Diesel (ex-showroom, New Delhi)

Variants Old Prices New Prices Difference
Manual Base Rs 21.34 lakh Rs 19.95 lakh Rs 1.39 lakh
Manual GL Rs 23.27 lakh Rs 22.49 lakh Rs 78,000
Automatic GLS 4WD N.A. Rs 25.19 lakh

Compass is much more capable Mini SUV, so you won't have to worry about roaming around any terrin in India with it's 4X4 varient. Manual transmission is way useful as power is at your disposal as and when you need. Those who have driven automaic vehicles, would know the furustating gear shift lag.
