The facelift will definitely not make it to India this year. I am guessing a March/April 19, if Hyundai decides to continue selling the Tucson as a Halo model. If you are still interested in the sunroof, you should have it shortly with the GLS+.

The India spec Trailhawk that was displayed recently did not have a sunroof.

The GLS+ will surely be in the showrooms in the time scales that you have mentioned.

Just to clear the air, the GLS+ is another variant and Acelerar is talking about the facelift that was displayed in the US recently.

So any news about GLS+ launch and the likelihood of it having a pano roof?

OT question - has anyone seen a drop in FE especially after launch of BSVI fuel?? There is a drop of 1-1.5kmpl [depending on driving conditions] after I've started using BSVI.

Mods: please move to another thread if posted incorrectly.

Default Hyundai-Tucson-Passenger seat modify ?

Hi,
I understand the New face lifted Creta comes with electrically adjusted passenger seats ? Is this correct ? If so then is it possible to get the Tucson passenger seat exchanged with the Cretas ???
What would need to be done and how does one go about it
Some thought on this would be appreciated
Regards,
Seacat

Hi!
Is there any confirmed news of facelift launch of Hyundai Tucson in India? As I am planning to buy one a petrol version during Diwali season.

Hi Seacat, that information isn't right, the new Creta only comes with an electrically adjustable driver's seat, the passenger seat is still a manually adjustable one. Hope I helped in clarifying your query.

Is your Tucson a Petrol or Diesel model? If Diesel whether you had to add any additive after switching to BSVI? Apart from drop in fuel efficiency, is there any performance issue due to BSVI fuel?

^Wait, is that what is happening? Lately I've felt a power drop in my car, diesel, and I mostly attributed it to me getting used to the car. If this fuel thing is real, how can we rectify it?

I am confused between Hyundai Tucson (AT-GL DSL) and Isuzu MUX (2WD)
1) Tucson is cheaper than MUX by nearly 2 Lakhs (On-road)
2) Hyunda Service network is a huge plus
3) MUX comes with 5yrs service + 5 yrs Warrnty + free 1st year insurance
4) Tucson - CBU (spare cost) vs MUX Spares availability & Cost.


Please help in making a decision.

For me it is a no brainier. I would pick the Tucson. It will be a far better SUV to live with in the long run.

If I remember, Tucson has a 3 year Maintainance and warranty built in.

The GL now comes equipped much better in terms of spec and equipment.

Refined engine with a decent gear box. Go for it.

Diesel GLS AT 2WD. No additives. No observed performance issues - within city limits, move at a snail's pace and on highways, need to brake before Tucson can stretch its legs.

First need to confirm if this is the right observation -have you seen a drop a FE? otherwise can you measure over a few tankfuls and update here?

Tucson is great. Only thing I'd suggest is to go for the automatic.

In a manual transmission Tucson (as mine is), the clutch is quite heavy (ie. needs quite a bit of force to push), and can get tiring in city traffic.

This is your 4X4 switch and as seen, one dummy switch is there to accommodate the AWD switch. Planning to use this after this month as too tied up now.

Excuse the towels, used post a gym/badminton session.

Btw, loving this crossover. Engine is fantastic as is the GB, I hadn't expected it to be so intuitive despite it not being a DSG or anything fancy. The engine is very refined, you get a cocooned feeling and it does mask speeds. Suspension is firm as are the seats. Haven't used the AWD yet, but a hill drive ia pending, so will update. But after this month. Does get its fair share of respect on highways, not that much in crowded city/towns.

Drove over 100kms today and will drive another 300 tomorrow. Will update.

Its a friend's ride and because he is my first friend I made in my life, so I am exploiting his ride.

The interior pic is from a iPhone 7+ and the others from a Honor 10.

This thing is very close to the pull of a freight train. Doing a calm composed 120, you floor the pedal, it drops a couple of gears and shoots forward, I like that. That 400NM of torque can be felt.

One of the very few crossovers in which I didn't notice sticking to 110/120kmph cruising speed, the engine is dead silent, you only hear the tire noise, nothing much apart from it.

Happy for my friend who has made a good choice, he needed something compact than Fortuners/Endeavors and something suave. And nothing from a big/major player as service criteria was important too. This strikes a good chord.
