The facelifted Hyundai Tucson has been officially confirmed to be introduced in India at Auto Expo 2020. Also, the new SUV has been spied completely uncamouflaged in Chennai just days before the unveiling. Meanwhile, the next-gen Hyundai Tucson is being readied for world debut later this year.
The the facelifted Hyundai Tucson has already been revealed internationally. It features a tweaked front fascia with revised LED headlamps, restyled bumpers, fog lamp housing, cascading grille and new skid plate. Moreover, it also features repositioned air intakes, revised tail lamps and new exhaust tips.
Changes on the inside include new features such as an updated 8-inch freestanding central display for the infotainment system, car-like horizontal central air vents, second-row USB charging and a panoramic sunroof. We expect 360-degree camera also to be offered in the new model here.
The old model is available with a 155 PS 2.0-litre petrol engine and a 185 PS 2.0-litre diesel engine in India. A 6-speed manual transmission is standard, but customers can go for a 6-speed automatic transmission optionally. In the facelifted model, expect a newly-developed 8-speed automatic transmission option with the diesel engine (in place of 6-speed AT). Apart from this, the company could offer a 48-volt mild-hybrid system in combination with the diesel engine.
The key rivals to the facelifted Hyundai Tucson in India will include the Jeep Compass and the much more affordable MG Hector and Tata Harrier. The new model will be pricier.
