Not only will the mid-cycle facelift for Hyundai India’s flagship SUV – the Tucson – be on display at the 2020 Auto Expo, the Korean brand will also announce prices for it. Hyundai India MD Seon Seob Kim has confirmed this development.
Along with styling updates outside and in – which bring the SUV in line with Hyundai’s latest design language – the new Tucson will also feature mechanical changes in the form of BS6-compliant versions of the current model’s 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines. However, the same 6-speed manual and automatic gearbox options are expected to be on offer. Like with the current Tucson, the refreshed model is likely to come with an AWD option in the range-topping diesel-automatic version.
The Hyundai Tucson facelift will also get more equipment than the outgoing model; a new 8.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, the brand’s BlueLink connectivity suite, a 360-degree camera and adaptive cruise control are expected to be on offer, at least on the top-spec variants.
As the current Hyundai Tucson is priced between Rs 18.77-23.74 lakh for the petrol versions, and Rs 20.80-26.97 lakh for the diesel models, prices for the facelift will be higher due to all the updates. Expect a price tag between Rs 20-30 lakh (ex-showroom), depending on the variant.
