Hyundai Tucson To Challenge Toyota Fortuner In India
In the last few days, there have been a slew of new debuts in the seven-seater sector. None of these ventures, however, have specifically targeted the Toyota Fortuner region. The Fortuner continues to be unquestioned, which is extremely remarkable. This, however, will change with the arrival of the Jeep Meridian. There are now rumours that Hyundai will join this category with the long-wheelbase Tucson in a 7-seater variant. In today’s piece, we’ll look at the upcoming Hyundai Fortuner competition.
1. Technical Specifications
The powertrain options for this long-wheelbase Tucson will be the same as for the regular Tucson. As a result, a 2.0-litre normally aspirated petrol engine and a 2.0-litre diesel engine will be available. Hyundai may boost their performance by giving them better tune. Both engines will be available in automatic and manual transmissions. It will also be available in 4WD.
Hyundai’s new parametric dynamics philosophy will be used in the long-wheelbase Tucson. As a result, DRLs will be integrated into the grille. Because of the extra row, the side profile will appear hefty. It will also have a lot of crisp lines, giving it a contemporary appearance. New alloys and a lot of chrome will be among the exterior changes.
4. Notable Features
Hyundai will cram as many goodies as possible into the Tucson. The Advanced Driver Assistance System (ADAS) will primarily be used to help the driver. Multiple airbags, digital instrument clusters, paddle shifters, ISOFIX, wireless charging in the second row, and other amenities could be included.
Hyundai hasn’t said anything about the Tucson’s release date. Hyundai, on the other hand, is putting the new Tucson through its paces in India. Hyundai is rumoured to be bringing the Tucson’s long-wheelbase version. This Tucson with the long wheelbase will have a seven-seater layout. Hyundai will use it to compete in the premium seven-seater segment.
