first_imgThe Indian market loves SUVs and one manufacturer which is cashing in on that sentiment is Hyundai. After the recent success of the Creta and the Santa Fe, the company has now launched the third generation of the Tucson in the country. In terms of price and size, the Tucson sits right in between the Creta and the Santa Fe.ALSO READ: Hyundai Tucson launched in India; prices begin at Rs 18.99 lakh The Tucson, now in its third generation, has adopted Hyundai’s Fluidic 2.0 design philosophy and looks sharper than ever before. The front end is unique with a three-tier light console comprising of dual barrel projector lamps with integrated static cornering lights, a fog lamp unit and a day time running light. The large chrome hexagonal grille makes it unmistakably a Hyundai. In profile, too, there are plenty of plastic claddings to ensure the rough look. At the back the wraparound tail lamps are attractive too. Inside, the new Tucson look bright thanks to the dual tone treatment. The dash is large and spacious and there are plenty of cubby holes and bottle holders strewn around the cockpit. The all new touch screen infotainment device also supports Android and Apple Car Play. When it comes to features, there are plenty found in the Tucson and my favourite by far is the electric tail gate which automatically operates with gesture movements from the outside. The same can be operated from within the cabin and from the key well. Once open the boot is large and intrusion free.advertisementALSO READ: Hyundai Tucson SUV October 24 launch postponed to NovemberThe Tucson is available in both petrol and diesel guise. We were driving the 2.0-litre diesel powered automatic version which churns out 185bhp and 400Nm of torque. The first thing which impressed us is the NVH package. The engine is barely audible from inside the cabin and even on the move one will be hardpressed to realise that there is big diesel engine under the bonnet. There are three drive modes and putting the SUV in Sport mode surely changes the feel and the driver can feel the punch. However one surely gets to feel the power thanks to the brilliant tug it offers. The gearbox too is seamless and works well even when the foot is pressed hard down. The Tucson is also endowed with a good ride and handling package. The suspension sits at a sweet spot where it absorbs bumps well and at the same time there is minimal bodyroll. The steering feels well weighed and offers ample feedback and at the same time is not very heavy and this means tight city spots are not going to be a problem.ALSO READ: Hyundai Tucson coming to India on October 24The Tucson is all set to be a worthy adversory to the Creta and the Santa Fe and is a perfect SUV to buy in its segment.last_img read more
