Hyundai Tucson is currently the flagship model sold by the Korean manufacturer in India. We currently have the third generation BS6 version which was showcased at the Auto Expo earlier this year. In International markets like Korea, Hyundai has launched the forth generation Tucson SUV. The Tucson competes with SUVs like Jeep Compass and Skoda Karoq in the segment. Here we have a detailed video of the all-new SUV showing what all has changed in the car.
The video has been uploaded by Asian Petrolhead on their youtube channel. In terms of design, it looks nothing like the current generation Tucson that we have here in India. The design has been completely changed. The front grille has a distinct looking design to it. The large front grille also accommodates LED DRLS which act as part of the grille when turned off. The headlamps are placed on the front bumper and Hyundai has completely removed the fog lamps. The bonnet has number of strong character lines that add to the muscular look of the car. Overall, the front has a very unique looking design.
Coming to the side profile, the car gets black cladding all around the car. The wheel arches have been slightly squared out. It gets a machine cut 19 inch alloy wheels and the side profile again has number of complex looking character line running all over the place. Rear profile of the car is where it gets more interesting. Just like many other modern day Hyundai cars, the fourth generation Tucson gets an all LED tail lamp set up. Just like the whole car, this also has a unique design to it. There are jewel like LED lights with an LED strip running between the lamps.
As Tucson is a 5 seater SUV, there is a large amount of space in the boot as well. The video then shows the interior of the all new Tucson. In terms of features it is way ahead of any other car in the segment. Like other Hyundai car, Tucson is also filled to the brim with features like all digital instrument cluster, a large touchscreen infotainment screen, touch sensitive buttons, panoramic sunroof, heat and ventilated seats both at the front and rear, wireless charging, AWD system, 360 degree camera and so on.
In terms of engine, all new Tucson will be available with a total of 12 engine options. It consist of 6 petrol, 4 diesel engine versions and 1 hybrid and 1 plug-in hybrid version. Hyundai will offer only 3 engine option in the Korean market. Initially, it will be launched in South Korea and then will be made available in other international markets. As of now there are no announcements regarding the launch of the same in India.
