Priced between Rs 27.7 lakh and Rs 34.39 lakh, Hyundai unveiled its premium SUV Tucson in India (ex-showroom, India). The fourth-generation Tucson is offered in two trim levels, Platinum and Signature, and is imported to India in its long-wheelbase form. A shorter variant is also offered internationally. ADAS, a segment first and one of its standout features, is only offered on the more expensive Signature trim.
Only offered in the long-wheelbase form in India, the new Hyundai Tucson is the only SUV in its class to boast Level 2 ADAS.

Design highlights of the new Hyundai Tucson:
With the help of Hyundai’s “Sensual Sportiness” design language and distinguished by its sharply cut surfaces, the new Tucson sports a drastically different look from its predecessor. A large front grille in dark chrome that spans the width of the nose and incorporates LED daytime running lamps is one of Tucson’s standout features. The front bumper contains the primary headlights.
Highlights of the new Hyundai Tucson’s design
The prominent character lines, wide wheel arches, and body cladding of the new Tucson give it a bold appearance in profile. The outside rearview mirrors (ORVMs) and a slick chrome strip that runs from them to the D-pillar are located above the windows. It is mounted on 18-inch alloy wheels in two colors. With an 85mm longer wheelbase than the previous Tucson, the new model will provide additional passenger space.
Dual T-shaped LED taillights joined by an LED light bar are standard on the new Tucson. Along with a false silver skid plate, the rear bumper has a diamond-pattern finish. Additionally, a roof spoiler that conceals the rear washer and wiper is added.
Features and the interior of the new Hyundai Tucson:
The new Tucson also differs significantly from the model it is replacing on the inside. On the dashboard, there is a wraparound design, and touch-sensitive controls have taken the place of the majority of physical buttons. The dashboard shares a lot of similarities with Creta and Alcazar’s overall design, including the four-spoke steering wheel.
The dashboard boasts a piano black dashboard with a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system that is tastefully integrated. It also boasts a standalone 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster with customizable themes and turn-by-turn navigation. Stacking behind the screen, the touch-sensitive HVAC controls are now located. The automatic gear lever, a few physical buttons that operate the heated and ventilated front seats as well as other features, and the automatic gear lever are all located in the center console.
Dual-zone climate control, wireless smartphone charging, a panoramic sunroof, an air purifier, 64-color ambient lighting, 360-degree cameras, motorized adjustment for the driver’s seat with memory function, rain detecting wipers, reclining rear seats, connected car features, voice commands, Alexa and Google Assistant support, an 8-speaker Bose sound system, and a powered tailgate are among the new Tucson’s features.
A panoramic sunroof, a motorized tailgate, an air purifier, and rain-sensing wipers are just a few of the additional features included with the luxury SUV.
The Tucson is the first Hyundai car in India to include driver assistance features and has Level 2 ADAS systems. With the Tucson, ADAS systems including frontal collision warning, blind spot assist, lane keep assist, and rear cross-traffic alert are available. The SUV also comes with safety features like 6 airbags, ABS with EBD, ESC, hill-hold control, and more.
