All-New 4th-gen Hyundai Tucson to debut in India in July 2022

Written by Rohit Tonapi

About a month ago, Hyundai India announced that it will bring its global best-selling SUV brand, the Tucson, to the Indian market. Hyundai India also released two images and a video. Back then, the company said the 4th-generation Tucson will arrive in India by the second half of the year. However, we now have an exact date.

The company has announced that the all-new Tucson will be unveiled in India on 13th July 2022. It is also likely that it will go on sale a few weeks after the unveiling. When it makes its way to India, the Tucson will compete with the Volkswagen Tiguan, Jeep Compass and the Citroen C5. 

All-New 4th-Gen Hyundai Tucson – Highlights

Since its launch in 2004, Hyundai has sold over 7 million units of the Tucson worldwide. Furthermore, the SUV has also had over 50 global accolades since 2010. The Hyundai Tucson is one of the most innovative and dynamic SUVs in the company’s lineup. 

The SUV follows Hyundai’s ‘Parametrics Dynamics’ design philosophy. The theme consists of using sharper geometrical surfaces and a cutting-edge headlight design. Hyundai calls this headlight architecture ‘Parametric Hidden Lights’. The Tucson also features a jewel-like grille which integrates with the headlight unit. This allows the lights to blend in with the grille when they are not turned on. The rear of the car also continues the geometric theme. The taillights feature a wraparound design with split wedges. Another highlight at the rear is the windscreen-integrated Hyundai logo.

There is no confirmation of what powertrain India will get. The Tucson is available worldwide in a wide range of ICE and hybrid powertrains. However, sources suggest we will get 2.0-litre turbo petrol and diesel engines. It will likely get two transmission options – a 6-speed manual and a 6-speed automatic. The SUV will also likely get an AWD system.
