Hyundai's new Tucson SUV is slated for its launch in India on November 14. And now ahead of its launch, a few details of the SUV have been leaked on to the web through its official brochures.
According to the brochures shared by Team BHP, the Tucson SUV will be offered in three trims -- 2WD MT, 2WD AT GL and 2WD AT GLS -- and will come with two engine options. While the 2.0-litre CRDi engine, which can churn out 182bhp at 4,000rpm and 400Nm at 1,750-2,750rpm, will power the diesel model, the petrol mill Tucson will come with a 2.0-litre dual VTVT unit that will generate 153bhp at 6,200rpm and a peak torque of 192Nm at 4,000rpm. The transmission in both the engines will be taken care of by either a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic gearbox. The petrol variant of the Tucson claims to offer a mileage of 13.03 kmpl with the manual and 12.95 kmpl with the automatic gearbox. On the other hand, the diesel-powered Tucson will deliver 18.42 kmpl for the manual variant and 16.38 kmpl for the automatic variant.
The Tucson measures 4,475mm in length, 1,850mm in width and 1,645mm in height and comes with a wheelbase of 2,670mm. The SUV will come with features such as dual-zone climate control, rear AC vents, 10-way power adjustable driver seat, and keyless entry and go, automatic headlamps, puddle lamps, and cruise control. Other features include 8.0-inch touchscreen system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support and Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity.
On the safety front, the Tucson SUV will get dual airbags and ABS with EBD as standard across all trims. The top-end variants of the SUV will also get electronic stability control (ESC), vehicle stability management (VSM), hill-start assist control (HAC), downhill brake control (DBC), and brake assist.
The bookings for the soon-to-be-launched the new Tucson are already open in the country for a down-payment of Rs 25,000 and is expected to get a price tag at starting price of Rs 18 lakh. In India, the Tucson will be positioned between the Creta and Santa Fe and the SUV will rival Mahindra XUV500, Honda CR-V and Skoda Yeti.
