All-New Hyundai Tucson is just a couple of days away from its official launch in the Indian market. But prior to launch, the features and engine specifications of the SUV have been revealed. For those asking, Hyundai Tucson was showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo in February, while it would be positioned between the Creta and Santa Fe. It would be available in both petrol and diesel fuel trims with manual as well as automatic transmission. The Tucson SUV would be offered in three trim levels: 2WD MT, 2WD AT GL and 2WD AT GLS.
Hyundai Tucson measures 4475mm in length, 1850mm in width, and 1660mm in height, while having a wheelbase of 2670mm. The SUV would flaunt projector headlamps with LED daytime running lights (DRLs) as standard feature. The top-end trim, though, would get dual-barrel LED headlamps in place of projector headlamps. Also, roof-rails would be a standard feature. The base variant with manual gearbox would ride on 17-inch alloy wheels, while the automatic grades would come with 18-inch diamond-cut alloys. It would have a dual-tone black and beige interior cabin with fabric upholstery. As far as the top-end variants are concerned, they would boast of a leather upholstery with a plethora of premium features such as dual-zone climate control, rear AC vents, 10-way power adjustable driver seat, electric tail gate and keyless entry and go. Not to forget the 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is standard across the entire variant line-up.

The petrol variants would be powered by a 2.0L dual VTVT engine with maximum power of 153bhp at 6200rpm and peak torque of 192Nm at 4000rpm. They would be offered with both 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic transmission, while returning mileage of 13.03kmpl and 12.95kmpl, respectively. Coming to the diesel variants, they would derive their power from a 2.0L CRDi engine. The engine would develop 182bhp at 4000rpm and 400Nm between 1750-2750rpm, while available with both the 6-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearbox. The former would deliver fuel economy of 18.42kmpl, while the latter have a fuel economy of 16.38kmpl. Dual front airbags, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Electronic Brake-force Distribution are standard safety features, while the range-topping variants would also get side and curtain airbags. Automatic variants would have drive mode select feature with three modes: Normal, Sport and Eco.
