Hyundai Motor India is gearing up for the launch announcement of the new Tucson in the market. The annually updated SUV will go on sale in India on July 13. The new model has already appeared online, while official pre-launch bookings have yet to start.

Hyundai Tucson is one of the Korean automaker’s best-selling SUVs (over 7 million sold worldwide). And with the latest generation update, the company hopes to repeat the same success in the Indian market as well. The new 2022 Tucson comes out as a significantly improved version of the last-generation model. Not only the exterior design has been updated, the SUV now also has a number of new and modern features.

On the outside, the SUV features a fully enhanced design language characterized by a prominent grille that seamlessly integrates the signature LED lighting. The car now uses a remastered front bumper with a larger fog lamp housing. This new look is in line with the company’s global design language, which can also be found on the latest Palisade SUV. In addition, the new Tucson also uses other refreshed design elements, such as new darkened B and C-pillars, integrated Hyundai logo in the rear window, 18-inch dual-tone alloy wheels and more.

As for mechanics, the Indian model is likely to draw power from the well-known 2.0-litre petrol engine and from a diesel engine. These options are borrowed from the departing Tucson. For the transmission duties, it will use both manual and automatic transmission unit options.

The 2022 Hyundai Tucson will continue to compete with other SUVs such as Jeep Compass, Volkswagen Tiguan and the C5 Aircross.
