This is for my booking as on 23rd July. People who booked earlier will have less waiting period and it will increase with subsequent bookings. I think it's just indicative timelines to keep customer expectations realistic. This will change post price announcement, cancellations, variant wise booking numbers etc.

Good to see closure on this

Contrary to lot of views around ADAS, I for one am really looking forward to same for all my future cars.
Especially on highways, the autobrake, the adaptive cruise control, lane assist are some features that just give you an additional level of safety

I am prepared for ~39 OTR for the 4WD/AWD I have booked. I just hope they don't cross 40L during launch.

Dealers are ofcourse clue less. Also, though I have pre booked in April, the system only shows July date as thats when they could enter in system. I have however been assured of April date that would be considered during delivery priority.

Maybe KIA will bring the Sportage to India to take on the Tucson and price it below the Tucson, they are essentially the same vehicles underneath though!

Looks like dealers are getting more bookings than they anticipated. Being CKD, would the realistic capacity with Hyundai would have - 250-400 cars a month?

Is there a system where one can track booking status ? Something like Mahindra booking portal ? I have booked directly with the dealer and have received a copy of the booking form .

I remember the Gen3 Tuscon had the switch for AWD lock and even the brochure for Gen4 Tuscon mentions that the AWD variant can be locked in AWD mode.

However, I could not see the AWD lock button either in the center console or in the buttons on the right of the steering wheel.

Can anyone confirm that the new Tuscon does indeed have the AWD lock option and how is it activated ?

Hope this doesn’t go the Kodiaq route.

That's all I have got. Since I had pre-booked in April, I did not get even updated email with Variant and Colour. I asked my SA to send me snapshot from their booking system which he did for my reference. The date on system shows July date only which is expected. This is probably the old school route how dealers typically have been taking bookings.

Hopefully, we'll get more specifics on actual availability dates post August 4th announcement. Let us hope they start deliveries by end of August or early September.

It is the top left button in the group of buttons between the shift stick and the central arm rest (i.e. besides the twin cup holders) in the international model. Faintly remember seeing it in one of the India unveil videos as well. It is an illuminated button showing current status as well.

Guys.

Is the gearing of the AWD Tucson shorter that that of the 2wd version? I am keen to know whether at the same vehicle speed, will the AWD version run at a higher RPM when compared to the 2WD variant resulting in poor fuel consumption? I am experiencing this in my Duster AWD where the gearing is shorter when compared to 2WD Duster.

Regards
WC

That is a good observation.

The below snapshots are from Indian brochure and walk around video and I do not see the AWD lock button here. Ideally the button which does not have any label (above the Parking safety button) is where the AWD lock button is:

Indian Brochure, however does mention the Lock Mode. So now, I'm not sure where that 4WD lock option/button if provided. Snapshot below:

You can refer to below video for India Tucson HTRAC/AWD walk around. Start at 8mins and go till 9.5mins and no where I see AWD lock button


The below snapshot is from US Variant Tucson where you can clearly see AWD Lock button.

Review by the car wow guy. Reason putting this is not so much for the review but for the features which are not carried over to the india spec variant such as the rear ac controls etc. same thing with the Tiguan as well which is quite a lot of features which weren’t carried over to the India spec.

Except for rear AC Controls, and rear sunshade, do we have a complete list of features omitted in the India variant? I think, they get 19 inchers too.
