Hyundai Tucson to come with a panoramic sunroof in India soon. The new feature will be available in select variants, aimed to rival the recently-launched Jeep Compass Limited Plus (which also features a panoramic sunroof). The Hyundai Tucson facelift is expected to be launched in May 2019.
The current Hyundai Tucson doesn't come with a sunroof at all while the smaller and more successful Hyundai Creta, does have one (though it's not a panoramic unit). As per reports, Hyundai might also introduce a new GL(O) variant for the five-seater SUV.
The panoramic sunroof will be offered in both petrol and diesel variants. Along with the sunroof, the Hyundai Tucson is expected to bring further add-ons such as wireless charging and various smartphone connectivity features but probably in the facelifted version.
Of course, the addition of a sunroof and other equipment might bump up the prices for the higher variants while the base model might be available at the same price point. Prices for the Hyundai Tucson currently start at Rs 18.63 lakh and Rs 20.67 lakh for the petrol and diesel models, respectively. Both prices are ex-showrooom (Delhi).
The Hyundai Tucson is available with either a 2.0-litre petrol or a same-sized diesel unit. The petrol engine makes 153bhp and 192Nm of torque while the diesel gives out 182bhp and 400Nm of torque. The base variants come with a 6-speed manual transmission while the higher trims have a 6-speed automatic.
The Hyundai Tucson mainly rivals the Mahindra XUV500, Jeep Compass and the upcoming Tata Harrier. The Tucson has also become the most premium model in the South Korean brand's model line, after the discontinuation of the Hyundai Santa Fe.
Thoughts On The Hyundai Tucson Sunroof Variant
With the strong competition mainly offered by Jeep India and Mahindra, the Hyundai Tucson has been witnessing a bit of struggle in the sub-25-lakh SUV segment in India. With the new Tata Harrier also coming to stiffen up the market, it was high time that Hyundai needed to refresh the Tucson. Hopefully, the addition of the new sunroof might help the Tucson get some sales.
