2022 Hyundai Tucson: Detailed analysis
The new Hyundai Tucson is a massive step up from its outgoing counterpart. The new exterior was designed with Hyundai’s ‘Sensual Sportiness’ philosophy in mind. One can see this theme imbibed in the freshly redesigned 3-D grille with ‘parametric jewel’ detailing. The LED headlamps seamlessly blend into the massive grille, giving it a bold and unique look.
The side profile also boasts a new look with 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels sporting a fresh design. The rear features a redesigned tailgate with new LED tail lamps connected by a LED light bar. The bumper receives a diamond pattern finish and a faux silver skid plate.
The interiors have been totally revamped as well. The physical controls have been replaced with touch panels, with a new 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system at the centre. The interiors follow a dual-tone black and grey colour theme. The HVAC controls now receive a touch panel of their own, sitting right beneath the infotainment system. The driver’s display also comes in the form of a 10.25-inch screen.
The new Tucson comes packed with Hyundai’s latest safety features like the Level 2 ADAS capability, six airbags, ESP, hill descent control, and hill assist. On top of that, it is studded with new tech like dual-zone climate control, wireless charging, 360-degree camera, ambient lighting, air purifier, smartphone connectivity, and an 8-speaker surround sound system.
The new Hyundai Tucson will be offered in 2.0-litre petrol and diesel options. The petrol engine comes mated to a 6-speed automatic gearbox and generates a maximum power of 156hp and 192Nm torque. The 2.0-litre diesel engine comes mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox and generates a maximum power of 186hp and 416Nm torque.
The price tag for the new Hyundai Tucson will be announced on the launch date, August 4. We expect it to cost around Rs 23-28 lakh, rivalling Citroen C5 Aircross, Jeep Compass, Toyota Fortuner, and Kia Seltos.
