Engine Specifications

New Hyundai Tucson Launched

Variants Engine Transmission Power (bhp) Torque (Nm)
GL(O) Diesel AT 2.0-litre Diesel 8-Speed AT 182 400
GLS AT Diesel 2.0-litre Diesel 8-Speed AT 182 400

GL(O) Petrol AT 2.0-litre Petrol 6-Speed AT 150 192
GLS AT Petrol 2.0-litre Petrol 6-Speed AT 150 192

 

Hyundai Tucson comes with a petrol and a diesel engine along with two gearbox options and it is a good thing that all of them are AT. Both the engines are refined and have good NVH (Noise Vibration Harshness) levels, but the petrol engine might feel a bit lethargic to drive. The diesel, on the other hand, is a punchy engine to drive and is more frugal than the petrol.

Price List

Variants Price (ex-showroom)
GL(O) Diesel AT Rs 24.74 Lakhs
GLS AT Diesel Rs 26.08 Lakhs
GLS 4WD Diesel AT Rs 27.47 Lakhs
GL(O) Petrol AT Rs 22.69 Lakhs
GLS AT Petrol Rs 24.37 Lakhs

 

As you can derive from the table, Hyundai Tucson is priced a bit on the higher side to maintain that premium characteristic. However, the prices could have been a bit lower to attract a larger audience and it would’ve helped them in boosting sales. Nevertheless, the petrol variants are still a bit on the lower side and people can consider buying them.

In terms of connectivity, it gets what all the other rivals get but the touchscreen could have been a bit bigger.

Conclusion

Hyundai Tucson is a premium SUV that comes with two engine options and two gearbox options for people to choose from. It gets capable engines but the diesel counterpart is more powerful, better to drive and frugal. It gets all the necessary features and gizmos in all the variants and it will get all the missing features in the next update. Considering everything, you can buy any variant of the Tucson and your decision will not be wrong as all the variants are packed in all the departments.
