Has anyone decided a color, im confused between Starry Night and Amazon grey? Does Amzon grey has a greenish tinge??
Features missing in the platinum over signature model are as follows:
•8-way power adjustable passenger seat
•Passenger seat walk-in device
•Hands free smart power tail gate with height adjustment
•Driver power seat memory function
•Front ventilated & heated seats

- ADAS features except :
•Blind-spot view monitor (BVM) &
•Surround view monitor (SVM) {360^ camera}

I personally feel that the amazon grey colour would be close to Tata Nexon’s green shade.

I have booked the Phantom black colour Platinum 2.0 DSL.

Although Hyundai should have put ventilated seats in Platinum too. Just a gimmick to push a person from Platinum to Signature {FOMO on ventilated seats } thinking of Creta getting it in 16 lakhs variant.

Default Hyundai Tucson

Hyundai has started taking bookings for Tucson. It seems it comes in two flavors, the signature, and platinum. DM Hyundai, Gurgaon is accepting the booking. More details awaited

Was inclined on the Amazon Grey but ended up booking the Black in the end. Tried hard to stay away but in the end the heart demanded it . I currently have a black XUV500.

I had Pre-booked with dealer back in April. Today gave confirmation to go ahead and enter in their booking system:
- AWD Diesel in Amazon Gray

Now the wait starts for the Aug 4 official price announcement

Hyundai has updated Tucson landing page with sections now.
Also, finally their marketing team figured out the goof up of using Venue picture in ClicktoBuy booking system and has been updated with Tucson picture now

I've seen Nexon green shade and it looks much different than Amazon Gray shade. I've seen Amazon Gray shade in Hyundai i30 and looks nice and unique. Somehow it's difficult to explain and you need to see it in person

Waiting for the prices to be announced on August 4th.

While the Platinum has enough features, Hyundai shouldn't have skipped ventilated seats and powered tailgate.

They should have reserved just ADAS features for the Signature variant and given a choice of 2WD and 4WD.

I am guessing the price difference between Platinum and Signature 2WD will be 2-3 lakhs or even higher.

What is this Hyundai's policy to skip some features that they offer on other cheaper products in their line-up?

E.g. - cooled glovebox, rear sunshades, ventilated seats, projector LED headlights to name a few.

I too have booked one and will decide after the price announcement.

Sad thing is that I don't have other alternatives in this price range. The only other options are Hector (no diesel AT), Compass (smaller and overpriced), Harrier / Safari (not that premium & another Tata).

I promised myself that my next car would have a decent headlight setup and seeing projectors missing on even the top variant is seriously disappointing. I currently drive a Venue and sometimes I have to check whether the headlights are even on because the throw is so, so poor. In addition, incoming cars blind me for a few seconds so it is a huge safety concern.

Add to this the fact that it gets the same "premium" Bose system found on lower models is just one more things that irks me. The outgoing model had a decent Infinity system which has not been carried over.

Then Hyundai goes on to add a light grey interior for our conditions and it just makes me

With the Kodiaq MIA I am seriously considering canceling my booking and going for the Superb with the new Cognac interior

Curious to know, their system refers to dealers order book or Hyundais? Trying to figure out if the booking commencement date announced by manufacturers has any value at all in the post COVID era.

Hyundai Tucson ADAS tech calibrated for India.

The protocol from Hyundai HQ was to recalibrate the ADAS package to suit Indian conditions and the system couldn't simply be carried over from another market unchanged.
Quote:
ADAS was a non-negotiable part of the Tucson launch plan from day one, as an integral halo feature of the SUV for India. The Hyundai Tucson India launch would even have happened, as per the original schedule, sometime in 2020 or 2021, but a combination of the pandemic and the calibration of the ADAS are what delayed it to August 2022.

This might vary manufacturer to manufacturer and also on demand for specific model. Like what was done for XUV700 and what is planned for ScorpioN is very unique.

For me, it is system, dealers use to enter actual booking to the manufacturer.

I agree that 40 lakhs feels too much for a Hyundai ... and 30 lakhs feels too much for a Mahindra and 60 lakhs for a Fortuner

So true! Such are the times . All cars are pricey in the current market. All the more reason I love my 2014 punto 90 hp sport(top end) that was 8.8 lakhs OTR .

Booked mine back in May and updated the color to Amazon grey, still split between amazon grey and starry night though. Guess will have to wait and see the colors in person, videos and photos aren't doing justice to either.

We all need to reset our expectations . We are not even talking about entry level luxury segment. When I checked the X1 which is about 55L OTR Bangalore, I was shocked at the number of features omitted from variant launched in India.

When Tiguan was launched at about 40L OTR Bangalore, most were shocked but then when Kodiaq L&K was launched at about 48L OTR, suddenly for someone who was just looking at 5 seater, Tiguan seemed VFM.

Totally agree with you. Context is everything.
