Hyundai showcased the facelifted Hyundai Tucson at the Auto Expo 2020. The updated SUV receives a few cosmetic changes along with a new automatic transmission for the diesel variants. Our sources have now confirmed that the upgraded SUVs will launch here on July 14.
It will be powered by 2.0-liter BS6 petrol and diesel engines. While the petrol engine will be paired with a 6-speed AT, the diesel unit is gaining a new 8-speed automatic transmission option instead of the 6-speed in the pre-facial model. The petrol engine is expected to generate 152 hp, while the diesel unit is likely to deliver 185 hp.
Upgraded Hyundai Tucson gets the latest launch from Hyundai’s signature cascade network, which is slightly larger than before. Other updates include a new set of alloy wheels (up to 18 inches), full LED headlights with LED DRL lights, LED taillights, and rain sensor wipers. Hyundai has also made a moderate modification to the rear coil which has a bumper and plate cover.
Inside, the updated SUV features a new toolkit and an infotainment system with a touchscreen as part of the redesigned dash. With the update, Tucson will also support the latest Hyundai Connected Car technologies offering features like remote engine start and cabin pre-launch. Current features, including wireless charging, panoramic sunroof, and electric parking brakes, will advance in the narrow Tucson.
It is expected to get a bonus on the BS4 model before the facial, BS4 model, which retailed between Rs 18.76 lakh to Rs 26.97 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). It will fight with the next Skoda Karok, Jeep Compass, Honda CR-V, Volkswagen Tiguan 2021, and Citroen C5 Aircross.
