Hyundai ix 35 - 6

Hyundai has unveiled the all-new Tucson crossover in Korea a few hours back. It held a press conference where the production model was unveiled for the very first time.

The 2011 Hyundai Tucson has a totally different exterior styling to that of the out-going model. Hyundai’s new design language and the attractive ix-onic concept car come together on the Tucson to make it one of our favorite cars.

Added features are the panoramic glass-roof, hill-start assist control, downhill brake control (DBC), vehicle dynamic control (VDC), rear-view camera and others.

For a start, Hyundai will use only one gasoline and one diesel engine. Hyundai will offer either a 2.0L Theta II gasoline engine (166 horsepower) or the 2.0L R-diesel engine (184 horsepower). Engines are married to Hyundai’s all-new 6-speed automatic transmission and the diesel model comes in both front-wheel and all-wheel drive options.

When the new Tucson goes on sale overseas, Hyundai says it should be able to sell 260,000 units per year, apart from Korea.

Sales will begin early in 2010.

For India –

With Toyota bringing in the Fortuner, the game is pushed to the next level. Ford’s launching the facelifted Endy shortly and the new Nissan X-Trail is not very far away. When a spate of new cars from others in this segment are scheduled, Hyundai should look to make best use of the demand by re-introducing the new Tucson at an aggressive price.

Let us see if it comes to India.
