What do we think?
With an array of extraordinary and amazing features, we believe the all-new Tucson truly deserves kudos. It is indeed an SUV that is way much advanced that the other SUVs offered in competition. To mention, in India, the new Hyundai Tucson will rival other premium SUVs like Toyota Fortuner, Jeep Compass, Ford Endeavour, Skoda Karoq, Volkswagen Tiguan AllSpace, Honda CR-V and Tata Harrier (top-end trims). We think the elite corporate and young tech-savvy premium SUV buyers would love to own a car like this.
