Hyundai had unveiled the facelifted BS6 version of their flagship SUV – the Tucson – in our market at the 2020 Auto Expo this year. It competes with cars like Jeep Compass in the mid-size SUV segment. Hyundai had unveiled the SUV and was supposed to launch it in the market earlier this year but, due to the ongoing Corona Virus situation, the launch has been delayed. Now, the faceliftedTucson SUV has started arriving in some of the dealerships and this clearly indicates that Hyundai might soon launch it in the market. Hyundai will be launching it on 14 July 2020. Here we have a walkaround video that shows the facelifted SUV inside out.
The video has been uploaded by Dennis Kalyana on his youtube channel. The video starts by showing what all has changed in the updated version in comparison to BS4 variant. Starting with the headlamps, they are now quad projector LED units and the design of LED DRL has also been revised. The bumper houses the front parking sensors, fog lamps and second set of LED DRLs. It gets a wide grille at the front with chrome inserts which give it a premium look.
Moving to the side profile, it retains the same old shape with sporty looking machine cut alloy wheels and cladding around the wheel arches and body. It gets a chrome strip on the window frame and the turn indicators are integrated in the ORVMs. The chrome door handles are illuminated and it also gets a puddle lamp. At the rear, nothing has changed except for the revised LED tail lamps. It still gets a scuff plate and a twin tip exhaust at the rear.
On the inside, Tucson is still a 5-seater premium SUV and offers ample amount of space. Just like any other Hyundai car, it offers features like touchscreen infotainment system, wireless charging, Infinity audio system, panoramic sunroof, leather upholstery and so on. The whole cabin gets a black tone which gives it a premium look on the inside. Both driver and co-driver seat are electrically adjustable.
Hyundai Tucson will be available in both petrol an diesel engine options. The one shown in the video is 2.0 litre diesel variant that gets AWD option. It generates a maximum of 184 PS of peak power and 400 Nm of peak torque. The petrol version is powered by a 2.0 litre unit that generates 154 PS of peak power and 192 Nm of peak torque. Both petrol and diesel engines are available with manual and automatic gearbox whereas only the diesel version gets AWD option.
