All-New Hyundai Tucson – Features, variants and specs decoded!

After building up anticipation for quite some time, the Korean automaker finally unleashed its all-new Hyundai Tucson in the country on November 14, 2016. With the buyer’s increasing inclination towards SUVs in this part of the world, Hyundai has come all guns blazing to tap this rapidly growing segment (the Creta’s success is a testament of the company’s efforts).

Coming back to the Tucson, if you have zeroed down your search to this beau, you must be wondering which variant would be the best bet for your buck. Available in both the fuel options, the Tucson is being offered in three variants – 2WD MT, 2WD AT GL and 2WD AT GLS (only diesel). Have a look at the key features on offer in each of the Tucson variants.
