The new Tucson is priced in the range of Rs 22.30 lakh to Rs 27.03 lakh. We drove the top-end diesel variant (GLS) that comes with a 4 wheel drive. This engine is mated to a new 8-speed automatic transmission.

EXTERIOR

Even though the exterior of the new vehicle looks refreshing, one must admit that the outgoing model was much more beefy and chunky in its looks. The new Hyundai Tucson continues to come with a signature cascade design chrome front Grille. Then there are penta projector LED headlamps along with LED DRLs & LED tail lamps. It has LED static bending lamps, front and rear fog lamps, escort headlamps and puddle lamps.

The R18 diamond cut alloy wheels & twin chrome exhaust continue to give the Tucson a sporty look.

To enhance its looks, the vehicle has a chrome finish beltline, front and rear silver skid plates, roof rails, rear spoiler with LED high mount stop lamp, twin chrome exhaust, body coloured bumpers and outside mirrors with turn indicators, chrome outside door handles, shark fin antenna, door scuff plates, etc. S S S
