2022 Hyundai Tucson set for official launch today: 10 things to know
Hyundai Tucson 2022 facelift SUV is all set for its official launch in the Indian car market on Wednesday. Hyundai Motor India had already unveiled the fourth-generation Tucson SUV in an event last month and will now reveal the price structure for the model. The upcoming Tucson is already being sold in the global markets and is finally coming to India. Tucson will have to compete against the Jeep Compass, Volkswagen Tiguan and Citroen C5 Aircross.
Hyundai Tucson: Exterior
The 2022 Tucson is based on the Sensuous Sportiness design philosophy of the manufacturer. Because of this, the new Tucson looks nothing like the pre-facelift model. The design of the 2022 Tucson looks radically different. It boasts a new parametric grille that also integrates the LED Daytime Running Lamp of the SUV. The same grille design is also seen on the recently launched Venue compact SUV and it is expected that the Creta facelift will also get a similarly styled grille.
The headlamps are now placed vertically in the bumper. At the rear, there are split LED tail lamps with a LED light bar. Hyundai has cleverly hidden the rear wiper underneath the spoiler. On the sides, there are new alloy wheels and sharp lines and creases along with squared-off wheel arches.
