Aravind Jayachandran, It goes without saying that I'm a huge petrolhead and can apparently convert all my driving emotions into words you can read.

Likely to be brought into India via the CKD route.

Ahead of its Auto Expo 2016 premiere on February 3, Hyundai India has dropped the first teaser of the Hyundai Tucson that will make its Indian debut at the exhibition. The new Tucson is expected to arrive in showrooms across India after June 2016.

The India-spec Tucson is likely to be introduced as a diesel-powered SUV. In Korea, it packs Hyundai’s 2.0L (1,995 cc) four-cylinder turbo-diesel that produces 136 KW (182 hp) and 400 Nm of torque. This variant is available exclusively with Hyundai’s Active On-Demand AWD system and a six-speed automatic transmission.

The Tucson slots between the popular Hyundai Creta and the company’s flagship model, the Hyundai Santa Fe in the Indian market. Apparently, Hyundai had fast-tracked the launch of the Tucson according to a report. It will be locally assembled at the company’s plant in Chennai with CKD kits from Czech Republic or Korea.
