New Hyundai Tucson 2016 price in India

Priced between Rs 18.99 lakh to Rs 24.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), the 2016 Hyundai Tucson is claimed to offer best-in-class features.

November 24, 2016 – The all-new Hyundai Tucson, which recently went on sale in India, has received over 200 bookings since its launch on 14th November 2016. It shows the interest the SUV has generated among buyers. Interestingly, about 75% of the demand is for the diesel variants and 55% bookings are coming for the top-spec diesel trim with automatic transmissions. The SUV is available in three trim levels – 2WD MT, 2WD AT GL and 2WD AT GLS – with prices ranging from Rs 18.99 lakh to Rs 24.99 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). At this price, the Hyundai Tucson 2016 is competing against the Mahindra XUV500.

Engine options for the all-new Tucson include a 2.0L CRDi diesel and a 2.0L dual VTVT petrol. While the vehicle’s diesel mill is being offered across all trims, it’s only 2WD MT and 2WD ATGL variants that come fitted with the petrol engine. As a reminder, the first-generation Tucson was introduced in India in the year 2005, and discontinued within five years due to poor market demand. The compact premium SUV has now entered its third generation globally, and made its first public appearance at the Geneva Motor Show in September, 2015.

          The top-end variant of the Tucson could get a sunroof option; however, nothing concrete on the same has been revealed by the maker.

    Brv of almost same length is a 7 seater. Expecting Hyundai to give an option of 7 seater to make it more attractive. It wud be the right fit for the upper middle class Indian.

    I have get only Auto transmission

  25. romesh

    June 17, 2016 at 8:10 AMJun

    A 7 seater is mostly required for taxi purposes. For family use a 5 seater is ideal. Some one buying a 18-20 lakh vehicle is not going to cram 7 people in it.The only drawback is the mileage. Also if it is priced too high than it is going to lose to Honda CRV. Therefore a price range of 16-18 would keep it competitive.

  26. Shashank Rathore

    June 29, 2016 at 8:10 AMJun

    is this car runs automatic?

    • Editorial Team

      June 29, 2016 at 8:10 PMJun

      It will have an automatic transmission variant for sure.

  27. Amit

    Is it likely to have features like, Cornering lights, ventilated seats, cruise control, automatic braking, paddle shifters, headlight washers..

    • Editorial Team

      July 19, 2016 at 8:10 AMJul

      Besides paddle shifters, all the mentioned features might be offered with the Tucson.

  28. Beno

    Is there paddle shift?

    • Editorial Team

      July 19, 2016 at 8:10 AMJul

      We don’t think it will have paddle shifters.

  29. K Satyadarshi

    July 20, 2016 at 8:10 PMJul

    The car is excellent but areas of improvement are seating capacity, mileage and little pricing. Rest all things seems to be fine.
