The plan is to announce pricing of one variant at a time. So that their servers don't crash by all the cancellation requests hitting simultaneously

Can we start calling Tucson now as 'Dead on Arrival'?
Hyundai does not have a premium perception in Indian market and this pricing is likely to work against Tucson.
This however open doors for the creta facelift (With ADAS) to charge a premium.
We should have a poll on the latest pricing by Hyundai and whether it still makes sense to buy Tucson.

Hyundai has taken the car launch event to a new level. After the static/dynamic unveil drama from VAG India, Itís now Hyundaiís turn

I also think that Hyundai is trying to gather the sentiments from people and price the remaining variants accordingly.

Hyundai deleted my comment to their Instagram post of Tucson. "How do you spoil an opportunity? GREED", I had written. Now they can't even take healthy criticism! Speaks volumes of character.

Product on product, what are the biggest pluses that Tucson gives over XUV7OO?

What I could gather from last couple of pages is ADAS Level2, perceptive finesse and a certain brand prestige.

What else am I missing? Enlighten me please!!!

XUV 700 too has Level 2 ADAS. Tucson has a couple of additional ADAS features corresponding to reversing the car as a result of putting sensors in the rear as well.

Tucson provides better fit and finish, less niggles, better after sales service, more space (5 seats vs. 7 seats for similar vehicle length) and few additional features (powered front passenger seat, ventilated front seats, powered tailgate, etc.). But overall not worth the 10L additional ex-showroom / 12L additional on road.

Looking that prices of the top end model (Signature 4X4 AT), it might make sense to throw a few lacs more and go for a Kodiaq instead which would arguably be a better package ? It does miss out on ADAS but you still get a wholesome vehicle and a third row for kids and luggage?

Or actually save a few lakhs and get the much more capable (and prettier) Trailhawk if off road prowess is a point of interest.

Is this is a guesstimate or did Hyundai reveal the variant prices already.

What Hyundai did is very clever. They were supposed to launch the prices on the youtube stream at 12 noon today.

However Skoda tried to take the thunder away from Hyundai with a reopening bookings for 2023 and announced a massive price increase of 2.5 lakhs.

I'm very sure Hyundai saw the Skoda prices and then realised they have massive headroom now with the Kodiaq and conveniently cut short the live stream by announcing the base model petrol price only.

The prices for all models was released at 2:30 PM in a press release.

Now the prices are much closer to Skoda's older Kodiaq prices. I'm sure Hyundai jacked up the prices and hence delayed the prices for the top end variants to adjust against the new Kodiaq prices.

Hyundai should be sending a cake to Skoda office and throwing a massive party for Skoda.

Interesting to see how this will sell. Until few months ago, Tucson was hardly selling and this one seems to be priced 4-5 lakhs more than the previous generation.

Honestly for me this ADAS is a highly overrated feature since panoramic sunroof has become mainstream(not really useful in our road conditions).

This pricing was expected, with the current buying potential exhibited by crazy bookings for even the most expensive of cars.

Tuscon will continue to sell at the nos. that it was demonstrating earlier.

O.T.

Saw its Matt color, off road version in the latest movie 'Uncharted'

ďA car is more than the sum of its spec sheet and feature listĒ
- Aristotle after drinking a litre of petrol

The difference is in the experience; Things like NVH levels, suspension maturity, fit and finish, build quality, damping of moving parts, longevity, etc.

One mistake I see is that most people put ALL Hyundais into the same bucket and then see that entire bucket as they would a Creta. Cars like the Tucson, Elantra and the erstwhile Santa Fe, Terracan are truly international Hyundais. They are not in the same league as Vernas and Cretas. Ask anyone who has driven a bunch of Hyundais and they will tell you that these cars feel way better.

You donít always need a spec bump to justify a price increase. A better experience also justifies a price increase for a lot of people. Just how much that premium is and if itís worth it is the million dollar question . Some companies get it right and others donít. Time will tell if Hyundai has got it right or not.
