Buying it was a good experience as most Hyundai showrooms are quite customer friendly for those looking for their high end cars
Riding it is much better than Creta as it is definitely more powerful than it. However, as I already possess an Audi Q5 and a Toyota Land Cruiser, I was expecting just too much I guess from Hyundai. Suspension is not that good as you get in an Audi or Toyota (high end models) and it gives a bumpy ride experience on most of Delhi roads. Also the chasis (body) is not that strong as claimed by Hyundai, this I came to know when a small pebble hit my door while driving, with not much force but when I got down I saw a dent on my door's surface. Rest all things are good and almost same as in Audi. Also the headlights are not that strong as in any other car of its segment. Moreover, the double barrel headlights are of no use because there is no option of high beam or low beam. These lights just keep focussing in one straight direction. If you use the lever on right to give a dipper signal , strange enough the fog lamps turn on. Moreover the fog lamps are Yellow and headlights are white which give an utterly bad look and feel if you see from front (just feels like a modified car).
The car has got beautiful looks (for which I purchased it primarily ). It has got some good features such as smart tail gate which opens and closes with car remote easily. The automatic closers (hinges) used in this tail gate are made in Germany. It had got a push button hand brake just like in Audi. It has got 3 driving modes - normal, eco and sport. It gets a good thrust in Sport mode and the engine feels like brimming with power. However, use this mode wisely as the brakes of this car are not that effective as in an Audi.
It could have been made better by providing some cosmetic improvements such as all the seats should be ventilated (cooled). Both the front seats including the head rests should be auto adjustible. There should be a TPMS (tyre pressure monitoring system) in this segment car (even Mahindra Scorpio has that) . There should be a moon roof ( double sized sun roof) same as in any Audi of this segment.
In the end my verdict is if you don't have any better car and going for Tucson thinking that it could be your Audi or Toyota then think twice because you can get much better things in slightly more money. However, if you are a car lover like me and have lots of big brands and want to experience Hyundai Tucson also then go for it.
