Hyundai India to launch the New Tucson on October 24

Snapshot: Showcased in 2016 Auto Expo, the new Hyundai Tucson is all set to re-enter the Indian market this festive season. It would come as a great option if you are planning to get your hands on a premium SUV this Diwali.

Hyundai has scheduled the launch of its much awaited premium crossover SUV, the Tucson on 24th October. The car will go on sale during Diwali which will help Hyundai to encash the festive mood of the potential car buyers of India. Earlier this year Hyundai has showcased the SUV at the Auto Expo 2016.

Hyundai first launched the first generation Tucson SUV way back in 2004 globally which was quickly followed by an Indian launch next year. The SUV was in great demand during the first phase of its life cycle, but later the sales declined which forced the company to discontinue it after 5 years. However, an increasing demand of crossover SUVs has made the market right for Tucson. Right now the Hyundai Tucson is in its third generation and relaunching it now will help the Korean giant to gain some significant market share in this segment. The SUV would be positioned just between the Creta and Santa Fe.

The new generation Tucson would bear Hyundai’s signature Fluidic 2.0 design philosophy. The SUV measures 4475 mm in length, 1850 mm in width and 1645 mm in height, the SUV also has a long wheelbase of 2670 mm.

Hyundai is likely to power the SUV with both Petrol and Diesel engines. However the petrol model is expected to be offered in base variants only. The petrol engined variant is likely to be powered by a 1.4 liter turbocharged mill which was showcased at the Auto Expo 2016. The diesel variant is expected to be powered by a 2.0 liter CRDi four cylinder engine in multiple avatars. The engine would be connected further to a 6-speed manual as well as 6-speed auto transmission. Selected models can also come with all wheel drive system (AWD) which will provide brilliant off roading experience.

The interiors of the Tucson is finished with rich leather upholstery for the seats, leather wraps on the panels and the steering wheel. The SUV comes loaded with features such as touchscreen infotainment system with eight speakers, optional panoramic sunroof, electronic parking brake, satellite navigation system, six airbags, twin exhausts etc. As reported earlier, the Indian variant of Tucson is also expected to come with the Android Auto feature.

With the Tucson SUV, Hyundai is trying hard to achieve localisations up to 50%, which will help the company to keep the costs down. The SUV is expected to be priced around from 18 lakhs to 23 lakhs which will make it compete against the rivals like Honda CR-V, Skoda Yeti and Ssangyong Rexton.
