Hyundai Motors India has introduced the updated version of its flagship SUV – Tucson – on the first day of the Auto Expo 2020. The mid-cycle update for the SUV has been brought up with subtle design tweaks along with the BS6-compliant engines.
- The Tucson facelift gets the brand’s BlueLink connected car technology.
- The SUV has received minor design changes, especially at the front end.
- The updated Tucson is available with BS6-compliant petrol and diesel engines.
- The new model will be slightly more expensive than the old one.
The front fascia of the new Tucson looks refreshing, thanks to its new cascading trapezoidal grille, sharply-designed LED headlamps with integrated L-shaped LED DRLs (daytime running lights) and slightly tweaked bumper. The SUV also gets newly-designed alloy wheels, revised taillamp cluster and new reflectors on the tailgate.
Minor changes have also been made inside the cabin. The 2020 Hyundai Tucson facelift gets a new 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with an updated interface. The instrument console has also been revised. Similar to the new Elantra, the Tucson facelift is equipped with Hyundai’s BlueLink connectivity suite. It also comes with an electronic parking brake, a 360-degree camera, wireless charging, second-row USB charging and a panoramic sunroof. Read: 2020 Hyundai Verna – All You Need To Know
