Hyundai India had a quite silent year in 2021 concerning new car launches. This was mainly due to the pandemic and the chip shortage. But Hyundai is expected to launch a sleeve of products in 2022. One of its biggest launches will be the new-generation Tucson. The new-generation Tucson will be a massive upgrade over the current generation. But should you wait for Tucson in India? In today’s article, we will see reasons why you should wait for the 2022 Hyundai Tucson.
Hyundai Tucson 2022 Modern design
The new-generation Tucson is based on the brand’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design language. It gets a jewel-shaped grille with similarly shaped DRL’s giving it a modern look. The headlamps are placed lower on the bumpers. In the side profile, the Tucson comes with a lot of sharp lines and curvy bits giving a modern look. At the rear, you get inverted L-shaped taillamps with a connecting strip in the middle.
The Tucson comes with premium looking interiors. It gets a modern dashboard design with a big integrated touchscreen. The AC controls are also digital and come with a touchscreen layout. Other interior highlights include a digital instrument cluster, a two-spoke steering wheel, ambient lighting and 620-litres of boot space.
The new-generation Tucson will retain the same engine options as the current. This engine have been tried and tested in India, offering great reliability. It will get 2.0-litre petrol capable of producing 149bhp and 192Nm of torque. The other engine will be a 2.0-litre diesel engine capable of producing 182bhp and 400Nm of torque. It will also come with a 4WD system on the top variants. Globally the Tucson also comes with hybrid power trains.
Hyundai Tucson 2022 Features
The Tucson will come loaded with features. It comes with a powered tailgate, multi-air technology, ventilated seats, three-zone climate control, a 10.25-inch infotainment system and instrument cluster, high-speed wireless charging and a Krell sound system. Safety-wise it comes with 7-airbags, lane following assist, blind-spot collision avoidance and highway drive assist.
Currently, Tucson comes through the Completely Knocked Down (CKD) route. In CKD, the car is disassembled into individual parts, then exported into the country and reassembled. This makes Tucson a lot more expensive than its competitors. It is rumored that Hyundai would be locally assembling the new-generation Tucson to price it competitively. So we can expect competitive pricing on the new-generation Tucson.
A Tucson priced well with the latest looks, performance, and features is worth waiting for and checking. ITs rivals like the Jeep Compass and Citroen C5 will have to be ready for its market shake up.
