Following multiple speculations and leaks, the Hyundai Tucson has finally arrived in the Indian market. The striking looking crossover has been officially introduced with ex-showroom Delhi prices ranging between Rs 18.99 lakh and Rs 24.99 lakh, depending on the variant.
Hyundai India is offering the Tucson with two engine options and in three variants – 2WD MT, 2WD AT GL and 2WD AT GLS. Design wise, the front of the new Tucson is dominated by Hyundai’s signature hexagonal front grille connecting with the LED headlamps. The front bumper features a wing-shaped appearance, which incorporates the LED daytime running lights, giving a visual reference to the vehicle’s wide track. The rear, meanwhile, has a clean design with horizontal lines that flow from the rear wheel arches and are accentuated by slim tail lights.
