Hyundai could be planning to introduce the new Tucson in the Indian market, which made its debut back in September 2020. The new Tucson comes with a new Sensuous Sportiness design language and new technological features inside-out. Now, sources report that Hyundai is now testing the new Tucson on Indian roads, evident from the spy shots that have appeared on the internet. The car has been spotted donning full camouflage covers but appears to be in the final production-ready state. Hyundai could be running evaluation tests on the mule for type approval in the Indian market. We believe that the new Hyundai Tucson is likely to remain the same on both the exteriors as well as interiors.
Hyundai Tucson SUV – 7-Seater SUV
The Hyundai Tucson SUV is likely to come with a three-row seating arrangement. Speculations are the new Tucson could come with 7-seats, which could be a 2+3+2 arrangement. The brand may also offer a 2+2+2 6-seater option on the higher-spec variants. The Hyundai Tucson is likely to compete in the premium car segment, including the Volkswagen Tiguan, Jeep Compass and Citroen C5 Aircross. But being a 7-seater SUV will bring more leverage to the new Hyundai Tucson.
