The 2016 Hyundai Tucson made its world premiere at the 2015 Geneva Motor Show. It made Indian debut at the Auto Expo 2016.

The new Tucson follows the design language that has inspired the Hyundai Santa Fe and the Hyundai ix25. The crossover measures 4,475 mm in length, 1,850 mm in width, 1,645 mm in height, with a wheelbase of 2,670 mm. Its boot volume is 513 litres.

The SUV is expected to be introduced in India only with a diesel engine which is the 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 182 hp (136 KW) and 400 Nm. It will be offered exclusively with a six-speed automatic transmission and Hyundai’s Active On-Demand AWD system.
