2021 Hyundai Tucson revealed with a new design and a more eco-friendly plug-in hybrid engine. After a number of teasers, the South Korean carmaker has finally revealed the fourth-gen Tucson with a sleek new design.
Based on the Vision T concept that debuted at the 2019 LA Auto Show, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson will be available with two wheelbase options, depending on the market. The new Tucson will also be loaded with features and the production-spec version retains most of the design aspects from the concept.
The Tucson’s new front grille, along with the stacked DRLs is straight out of the concepts and the split LED headlights are inspired from some of the latest Hyundai SUVs. The 2021 Tucson gets plenty of creases on its body and the square wheel arches blend in well, while the large tyres give the SUV a bold stance.
Inside, the new Tucson gets a touch-enabled centre console and a large tablet-styled infotainment system. The steering wheel is identical to the new Creta’s design, while the faux AC vents give the Tucson a premium, upmarket feel.
In terms of creature comfort and features, the list is long. Some of the notable ones are the 10.25 inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, Bose speakers, a sunroof, voice command feature, Hyundai’s Digital Key, connected car tech, and more. Safety equipment consists of Lane Keeping and Following Assist, Blind View Monitor, Blind Spot Collision Warning, and much more.
Power is derived from either a 2.5-litre petrol engine or a 1.6-litre turbocharged hybrid motor. The 2.5-litre unit makes approximately 188 bhp and 247 Nm of torque with the help of an 8-speed automatic gearbox, while the hybrid motor (1.6-litre unit) makes 228 bhp and 350 Nm of torque. The Hybrid version of the new Tucson gets an all-wheel-drive system, drive modes, and traction modes.
The new Tucson will go on sale in Korea this month, however, we can expect the new Tucson to come to India sometime in 2022. When launched, expect the SUV to carry a price tag upwards of ₹20 lakh, putting the Tucson amidst the Jeep Compass and the Skoda Karoq.
