Ahead of launch, South Korean automaker Hyundai has released a teaser of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson. Hyundai has teased about the all new model of the Hyundai Tucson which will be the flagship SUV offered by the automaker. The new generation of the Tucson will bring a lot of changes in the SUV which are mechanical as well as cosmetic. The Hyundai Tucson is expected to go on sale in the second half of 2022.
It is quite important to note that the new Hyundai Tucson made its debut in the international market in 2020. However, the updated SUV is yet to launch in India. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson had been spotted in its camouflaged avatar while being tested and various spy images have surfaced on the internet. We are quite sure that the SUV will be equipped with ADAS safety features which include adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking, lane-keep assist, blind-spot detection, and lane departure warning.
The ADAS features will first appear on the Hyundai Tucson and then we expect the features to appear on other SUVs of the company. The 2022 Hyundai Tucson will also get 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system along with a digital driver display, panoramic sunroof, ventilated seats etc. Other safety features will include multiple airbags, 360-degree camera, descent control etc. The wheels of the SUV are supposed to be 18 inches for better performance is the Indian (on road as well as off road) conditions.
Globally, the Hyundai Tucson is offered in two variants- standard wheelbase and long wheelbase. While the standard wheelbase gets 2680mm wheelbase, the other variant gets 2756mm wheelbase. We are quite sure that the India will have the longer wheelbase version of the SUV. However, chances of the SUV being offered as a 7 seater are quite slim.
The 2022 Hyundai Tucson is expected to be offered in petrol as well as diesel engines. We expect an AWD variant (top variant) in the 2022 Hyundai Tucson line-up. The new generation of the Hyundai Tucson is expected in 2.0-litre petrol and 2.0-litre diesel motors. We are hopeful that the new Tucson will get manual as well automatic variants.
Currently, the Hyundai Tucson costs between Rs 22.69 lakh to Rs 27.47 lakh (ex-showroom in New Delhi). The SUV is offered in 5 variants which include the petrol and diesel variants. The base model is offered at Rs 22.69 lakh, while the 4WD Diesel AT variant is the top variant and costs Rs 27.47 lakh. We expect a change in the prices of the new Tucson when it launches in India. The ARAI mileage for Diesel variant is 15.48 kmpl and the Petrol variant is 12.95 kmpl.
