  • Available With Petrol And Diesel Engine Options

    The new Tucson offers a choice of both petrol and diesel engine options. Its arch rival — the Volkswagen Tiguan offers a petrol engine while the Citroen C5 Aircross — is only available with a diesel engine. Apart from the Jeep Compass, the Tucson is the only SUV in its class to offer both petrol and diesel engine options.

  • 4WD Available At A Reasonable Price

    The diesel automatic 4WD powertrain of the Tucson commands a premium of Rs. 1.52 lakh over the diesel automatic 2WD. The 1.52 lakh price premium is reasonable for the 4WD system and it also solidifies its SUV appeal.

  • Long List Of Features

    Even the base variant of the Tucson offers a long list of features like LED headlights with cornering function, electronic parking brake, 18-inch alloy wheels, 360-degree parking camera, 10.25-inch instrument cluster, LED tail lights and panoramic sunroof. The top variant further adds powered passenger seats, heated and ventilated seats, terrain modes and a powered tailgate.

  • Only SUV In Its Segment With ADAS

    The Tucson rivals other compact premium SUVs like the Jeep Compass, Citroen C5 Aircross and Volkswagen Tiguan. Among all its rivals, the Tucson is the only SUV in its class to offer Level-2 advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). It offers safety features such as auto emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert and avoidance and adaptive cruise control.

Tucson Disadvantanges
  • Petrol Engine Lacks Power And Torque

    The 2.0L normal petrol engine of the Tucson lacks the power and torque output one would expect from an SUV from this segment. Furthermore, the fluid coupling torque converter transmission further reduces its fuel efficiency, especially in bumper-to-bumper traffic driving.

  • Diesel Variants Priced At A Premium

    The 2.0L turbo diesel engine of the Tucson commands a premium ranging from Rs. 2.50 lakh to 2.70 lakh over the normal petrol variants, which is on the higher side.

  • No Class-Leading Dimensions

    While the Tucson boasts a class-leading length, it stands below the Citroen C5 Aircross in terms of width, height and ground clearance. As a result, the Tucson lacks the butch SUV appeal when compared with the C5 Aircross.

  • Missing Features

    Even though the Tucson comes packed with a ton of features, it misses quite a few such as puddle lamps, rear window and windscreen window curtains and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
