The big brother of Hyundai Creta, the Hyundai Tucson facelift, has finally been launched in India. Prices for this full-size SUV start at Rs 22.30 lakh (ex-showroom). The automaker has a good reputation for its compact and subcompact SUVs like Creta and Venue. However, it lacks the same appeal as its big brother, the Hyundai Creta.
As of now, the South Korean automaker has introduced the new Tucson with quite a big upgrade.
What’s New In The New Hyundai Tucson?
Here are some noteworthy changes in the styling of the new facelift Hyundai Tucson. The new Tucson gets redesigned front LED headlights, sharp tail taillamps, and wedge-shaped LED DRLs around fog lamps. In addition, the front grills are wider now, and the new 18″ alloys all together give it a fresh look. Moreover, the new Hyundai Tucson is available in four colors: Typhoon Silver, Polar White, Starry Night, and Phantom Black.
In terms of interior space, the 2020 Tucson gets a black theme dashboard along with black leather seats. On the center console, there is an 8-inch floating HD infotainment screen that comes integrated with Hyundai’s BlueLink Connectivity. In short, the interior of the car looks premium and of superior quality.
Hyundai Tucson Is a Feature Loaded SUV
Apart from the BlueLink connectivity feature that allows the user to control certain features through a cell phone, the new Tucson is quite rich in features. The company provides features like a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, 10-way adjustable seats, eight infinity speakers, wireless smartphone charging, and much more. In addition, similar to the new MG Hector Plus, Hyundai has also introduced a hands-free smart power tailgate.
Furthermore, the new Tucson is equipped with all the necessary safety features including six airbags, ABS, ESC, Hill Assist, and more.

What Engine Does The Big Brother Of Hyundai Creta Get?
Under the hood, you can get both petrol and diesel engine options. The petrol variant of the 2020 Hyundai Tucson gets its power from a 2.0-liter BS6 compliant engine that churns out around 150 BHP and 192 Nm of torque. Similar to its older variant, the petrol engine comes with a 6-speed automatic gearbox.
On the other hand, the 2.0-liter BS6 compliant diesel engines generate around 182 BHP and 400 Nm of torque. Unlike the petrol variant, the diesel engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission system.
Given all the above factors, this Hyundai Creta sibling will most likely rival the likes of Honda CRV and Skoda Karoq. What do you guys think? Will this new Tucson make any impact on the masses or not? Do share your views in the comments section below.
