In a bid to make its Tucson more competitive, particularly against the recently launched Jeep Compass Limited Plus, Hyundai has added a panoramic sunroof to the SUV. The Korean brand has also added a new mid-spec GL (O) trim to the line-up.
The Tucson petrol now gets a panoramic sunroof in the new GL (O) variant and the top-spec GLS automatic trim. The diesel model, however, only gets this feature on the new GL (O) variant, and not on the top-spec GLS trim.
Additionally, Hyundai has also added wireless charging on all Tucson variants except the base trim, along with i-Blue app compatibility and the AutoLink feature for the infotainment system.
Under the hood, the Tucson comes with a 155hp, 2.0-litre petrol and a 185hp, 2.0-litre diesel. While the base trims get a 6-speed manual as standard, the GL, GL (O) and GLS variants get a 6-speed torque converter automatic. On the petrol model, power is sent to the front wheels only, though the top-spec diesel does the get option of all-wheel drive.
The Tucson GL (O) petrol is priced at Rs 22.34 lakh, while the Tucson GLS costs Rs 23.60 lakh. The new Tucson GL (O) diesel is priced at Rs 24.11 lakh. In contrast, the panoramic sunroof-equipped Jeep Compass Limited Plus petrol-AT costs Rs 21.41 lakh, while the 4WD diesel MT is priced at Rs 22.85 lakh.
