Hyundai is always keeps their vehicle weight as secret, Reason: They are always lighter (also weaker in most cases) than competition.

This is the same case during the initial days of Creta, not able to find kerb weight. Finally one of our T-BHP member shared his RC copy. Tucson owners on the forum can disclose the weight from their RC copy.

Currently it is calculated with laden weight. Which is why you see even the big SUVs like even the new Fortuner having a ground clearance of 184mm only. A direct comparison between the old figures and new ones can't be made.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...en-weight.html (2017 ground clearance update - ARAI now measuring GC with laden weight)
Oh what a mess! If this is the direction ARAI is trending, then I wish ARAI had mandated manufacturers to state unladen GC as well as laden GC. That way one can still draw the right trends/conclusions.

Default Heated OVRM for the Hyundai Tucson

Hello !!
Can someone advise as follows;

1) if the Tucson OVRMs can be fitted with heating. The Car does not come with this feature :-(
(My Skoda has this feature and it was useful when the OVRMs got fogged up in the rains).

2) Any idea where I can buy the black netted sun shades that are Tucson specific. I don't want the ones sold by vendors at traffic signals.

Contact details will help.
Kind regards,
Seacat

Tucson does have heated ORVM's. There is a coil behind the glass which is plugged into the mirror cowl.

Time for Hyundai to aggressively correct the Tucson price post GST and probably give it a new lease of life.

Just waiting for that to happen.If they can price the top end GLS AT around 22-23L ex-showroom,they would find some buyers including me

But Hyundai have raised the ex-showroom price by 70k just before GST from 25 to 25.7.Not a sound strategy when you are only selling around 150 Tucsons every month.

Thanks mjumrani, can you direct me as to how to activate it. I do not see any switches/toggles or such to activate the heating

There is no switch. It's always on and noticeable when it rains. Fog doesn't sit on glass. Please read the car manual before scratching your head. It's all in there will the details.

Tucson OTR price in Kolkata is now 26.9 and they are offering 40k discount.

Should I negotiate more discount since it is selling meagre numbers?

Also,does the mirror link app work in Tucson(I mean would all the apps in my iPhone appear through Mirror Link on the screen).Please excuse me if that was a stupid question.

They have barely passed on the full benefits post GST, whereas similarly priced vehicles like Hexa and XUV saw higher reduction. Top end variant saws a reduction of 1.14L while the entry variant gets 86k reduction.

Below are the new ex showroom prices (Delhi)!

Petrol
Variant. Ex-Showroom Price (INR)
Nu 2.0 6-Speed Manual Base 1,813,317
Nu 2.0 6-Speed Automatic GL 2,089,977

Diesel
Variant. Ex-Showroom Price (INR)
R 2.0 6-Speed Manual Base 2,061,324
R 2.0 6-Speed Automatic GL 2,247,052
R 2.0 6-Speed Automatic GLS 2,386,351

I'm in the market for a premium Automatic SUV with fully loaded safety features, and although I don't like the pricing, the TUCSON is what I've kind of zeroed in to. The main reason being the comfort and the solid felling you get while driving this. (have taken one very small test drive)

I'd like to know if anyone has any news of the release of the 4x4 variant. If its in the near future I'm ok with waiting for the same, although thats not a deal breaker.

Not a reply to your doubt, but since you're OK with waiting for a bit, I'd tell you to do the same.

With the pricing of the JEEP Compass announced, the Tuscon prices may go down after a couple of months.

Possible.. But I truly doubt that. The SA, while taking the test drive, said that their target is to sell 1 each of Tuscon, Elantra and Santafe every month. So dont think Hyundai themselves want this to be sold aggresively. He also mentioned that they have got a lot of interest since GST brought the price down to 28.6 lac OTR here in hyderabad. (Maybe that would have gone down since today's Jeep launch). But Honestly I felt this car to be better than the Jeep atleast seating comfort and size wise. Inside of the Jeep felt very small, although I'm 6ft+ and XXL frame.

Though there is no official word from Hyundai, Trident auto mentioned that there may be a 4*4 variant out in the next two months. I had this discussion yesterday. Assuming that this Tucson may have cooled seats and a sunroof as well. Expect another 2 lakhs bump up on the sticker.
