Exterior Perhaps the most elegant styling in the class with will balance of curves and edges, the body to wheel ratio and driver's position and view is top notch, unfortunately very limited range of colours are offered in India market, the missing runroof is actually a blessing as it is more missused than a utility for indian road culture.
Interior (Features, Space & Comfort) Very roomy, fresh cabin, surprisingly wide legroom with superb seat quality and comfort, reclining rare seat is a blessing, unfortunately the body colours and interiors wont go well with eachother, beige wont suit silver body, you cannot choice the interiors and air bags being part of seat you cannot put choice seat covers, front seat missing the height adjustment, driver seat is very comfortable position with 10 position adjustments, cup hoders, glow box, door space, all are well placed with perfect distribution, rate pouch is missing,
Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox This is where this car gets maximum points, 3 driving modes, easy controls and smooth ride is the plus point over any car in this class, 185 BHP @ 2000CC deisel offers 4X4 ride is not available with any other rivals at this price,
I upgraded self from 110ps duster MT to Tucson and it gives substantial upgrade, duster was always underpowered, where as at any given speed/tarrain/condition tucson never runs out of power and responses are predictive and appealing.
Ride Quality & Handling Comfortable and fatigue free ride, best match for city and off road mix use, its more of a tall car with stable wheel base and ride than a hard core SUV which goes oversized for Indian cities, it is the best choice for the mix drive users.
Final Words If you are ready to compromise on the feeling of buying something which is 'little over priced' for the featured offered considering Hyundai service and network then there no other car in market today, once you get in to the drivers seat there is no other car that you can get envy of!
Areas of improvement Interior colours, can be changed to black , headlamp level adjustment is missing.
