– The 202 Hyundai Tucson has already been spotted testing in India
– We expect reservations for the model to open in the coming weeks
Last week, Hyundai India launched the Venue facelift in the country, with prices starting at Rs 7.53 lakh. The updated sub-four meter SUV comes in five variants in seven colors, details of which can be found here. The automaker has now officially confirmed the debut of the new Tucson in India.
According to Hyundai India, the new generation Tucson will be unveiled in India on July 13, with a launch and pricing announcement likely to take place soon after. We expect reservations of the fourth-generation model of the SUV to begin in the coming weeks. When launched, the 2022 Tucson will compete with the Volkswagen Tiguan, Jeep Compass and Citroën C5 Aircross.
Under the hood, the new Hyundai Tucson is expected to be powered by the same 2.0-liter gasoline and diesel engines as the outgoing model. Transmission options, including a six-speed manual unit and a six-speed automatic unit, will likely be retained as well.
Highlights of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson include a new grille with integrated LED daytime running lights on each side, triangular-shaped headlights, new 18-inch two-tone alloy wheels, a toothy design for the LED taillights in two-piece, square wheel arches, Hyundai logo on the rear windshield, a four-spoke steering wheel, two touchscreen units on the center console (one unit each for touchscreen system and AC controls) , a fully digital dashboard, gear that replaces the gear lever and an electric parking brake.
