New Gen Hyundai Tucson to make its India debut this month


Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) is gearing up to host the local premiere of the Tucson soon after introducing the facelifted Venue. Tucson’s global fourth-generation will be unveiled on July 13, 2022, ahead of its market launch. Several changes will be made inside and out, and the features will improve over the model it replaces.

Fewer than two years ago, the premium five-seater SUV made a big impact globally with a brand new design philosophy. The Sensuous Sportiness-based Tucson is equipped with a redesigned front fascia and sharper body panels. Up front, the 2022 Hyundai Tucson gains a Parametric Jewel pattern grille with seamless integration of the lighting system and triangular-shaped headlamps.

The heavily revised front bumper boasts a wider air intake while the newly designed 18-inch alloy wheels add to the flare. The short overhangs enabling a large greenhouse courtesy of a long wheelbase, futuristic LED tail lamp strip, redesigned rear bumper, new front and rear skid plates, shark fin antenna, high mounted stop lamp, new roof rails and sculpted bootlid are some of the other visual highlights of the upcoming SUV.

The bookings for the new-gen Tucson could commence in the coming weeks and the same design philosophy featured in the SUV will be found in the upcoming Creta facelift and the all-new Verna. The Tucson is retailed in two different versions internationally and India is expected to get the long-wheelbase variant.

The new Tucson will take on Jeep Compass, Citroen C5 Aircross, Volkswagen Tiguan and the likes and will reportedly be available with the existing 2.0-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel engines, paired with the same transmission choices. It will become the flagship SUV product from the second largest car producer in the country.

Interior features include a completely redesigned instrument cluster, a new steering wheel, a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless charging, ADAS based technologies, a panoramic sunroof, and others.
