Hyundai Launches 4WD Tucson For ₹ 25.19 Lakhs

The company has also added extra safety features in the 2WD GL variants.

 

Hyundai India has launched a 4WD variant of the Tucson today. With the competition (Jeep Compass, Mahindra XUV500, Volkswagen Tiguan) all offering AWD, it was only a matter of time before Hyundai plunged into the territory. The 4WD tech will be only available on the new top 4WD AT GLS diesel variant which replaces the 2WD AT GLS diesel variant. The Tucson 4WD is priced at ₹ 25.19 lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).

The Tucson’s 4WD system is actually an on-demand AWD (all-wheel drive) system which primarily powers only the front wheels, but when the rear wheel traction control system detects rough, loose or slippery surfaces, it automatically sends power to the rear wheels to maintain traction. Hyundai does offer a manual 4WD lock mode too which the driver can activate, resulting in a permanent 50:50 torque split between the front and rear wheels. The system also comes with an advanced traction cornering control which helps to transfer torque to the wheels that have the most grip resulting in improved traction during heavy cornering.

 

Extra safety systems on the Tucson 2WD (petrol and diesel GL variants) include electronic stability control, vehicle stability management, hill assist control, down-hill brake control and brake assist.

Commenting on the introduction of 4WD TUCSON, Mr. Y K Koo, Managing Director and CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd. said, “We are happy to introduce the most awaited 4WD Global SUV – TUCSON to the Indian market. Introduction of 4WD is to bring to the customer the next level of cutting edge technology in Dynamic Styling, Athletic Performance, Advanced Safety and Smart Comfort as product innovation towards competitive advantage in fast growing SUV market while also enhancing the overall price value equation through value engineering and passing the price benefit to customer.”

 

Powering the Tucson is either a 2.0-litre petrol (152bhp/192Nm) or a 2.0-litre diesel (182bhp/400Nm). Both engines are mated to either a 6-speed manual transmission or a 6-speed automatic unit.
