The most underrated steed in Hyundai’s stable
Saurabh Gamare

The Hyundai Tucson deserves a lot more attention. Hyundai has been partial towards the Creta for a long time, but for now it’s given the third-generation Tucson one last update before it makes way for the incredible-looking fourth-generation one which was recently unveiled a couple of months ago. But for now, we have the Tucson’s BS6 update, and there are quite a few interesting bits added to it.

For instance, the cascading grille’s now a tad bigger, and it is quite neatly executed, while the bumpers are redesigned, too. But my favourite bits of all are the lovely 18-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels that are standard across all trim levels. On the other hand, the base variants miss out on the amazing pentaprojector LED headlamps. I know looks are subjective, but I love how proportionate the Tucson looks from every angle. If I am being honest with myself, its design does come quite close to the Tata Harrier’s level which, in my view, is still the bestlooking SUV in that range.
