I sincerely hope to see this butch X'over in India but even if it happens (which i highly doubt) I'm convinced those bird-brains at Hyundai will bring it the CBU route which means EPIC FAIL on the pricing front....A la Terracan->Tucson-> And soon to be Santa Fe.

@digital Somehow i think the Santa Fe is not going to be a failure.Hyundai says they have got an overwhelming response for the Santa Fe,not in the class of fortuner but still pretty decent.

But i wish they had launched this instead,but i guess it would have been a segment higher than the santa fe.

Wow. Now this is a surprise. What with the Santa Fe and the ix35, now this possibly coming in

The old Tuscon, though good, was way too small for an SUV. This one, seems to be the right size for one and looks very upmarket. WOuld have loved to see the front. I dont suppose u have them do you

I thought Tucson is usually positioned a segment below Santa Fe, Tucson being a 5 seater based on Elantra platform and Santa Fe being a 7 seater (in some markets Santa Fe is also a 5 seater) based on Sonata platform.

If Hyundai gets this baby to India then I will upgrade my Elantra to this.
I like its stance and design.
Any idea if this car will be available in India?

Looking at the number plates, i doubt Hyundai is testing the car for India. The car must have been on transit to either Nepal or Bhutan.

On my recent trip to Malaysia i clicked some pics of the new Tucson. Posting them here.

The one in the pic above seems to be the ix35. A bit confusing now, as to why they want to launch the ix35, the Tuscon along with the existing Santa

Tucson will be positioned below santa fe. Check cars.com for info.

Both, ix35 and Tucson are the same car. In Europe and Australia its called ix35, elsewhere its called Tucson. Tucson is priced a segment below the Santa Fe, so there is no question of overlapping.

Am I the only one who thinks that the new Tucson's rear end looks very inspired by the Audi Q5? I must admit they have been able to disguise it to some extent, but the resemblance remains.

A close friend spotted a ix35 Tucson in the G.T.Road in West Bengal. Probably a test car.

The TUSCON has always been a sought after vehicle. See it often at second hand dealerships and they get picked up very fast. The vehicle seems to be holding its value really well and seems a lot more manageable unlike big brother the TERRACAN

When you say SUV, I think you should differentiate between ladder on frame types and monocoque chassis ones. The CRV and TUSCON are monocoque ones while the FORTUNER is a ladder on frame
