There wont be any discounts when the facelift comes in June.
Thats true, but I bet there are more updates than just the ventilated seats and camera. I saw a review of the facelifted model where they said the suspension is also tweaked a little and now is a little bit on the firmer side. I will find out more on the differences. Also there is possiblity of getting more discounts just before the new facelifted model gets launched (if it ever gets launched)

@sreejinair, are you sure it's a 2019 MY vehicle? I got a similar (upto 3lakh) quiote on a 2018 GLS Diesel AT 4WD (without sunroof) which is mostly manufactured in Aug/Sept 2018 (as the sunroof version was introduced in Oct 2018). Thats about 6months old which IMO is risky for a 25lakh+ car.

I'm sure this is for the 2019 manufactured vehicle, I was getting the 4wd GLS 2018 manufactured vehicle for 29.5 lacs. i.e. 3.3 lacs discount. On road price in Aurangabad, Maharashtra is 32.8 lacs. Anyway why do you say its risky for a 6 months old (new) vehicle?

Read this thread https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/buyin...ring-date.html (ARTICLE: Buying a New car with an Older manufacturing date). Very nicely written and informative.

^^Is it really so much of a risk?

Mine is a Jan 2017 manufactured Tucson (based on VIN#) which I purchased brand new in Oct 2017. Haven't had any problems and it's been a fantastic driving experience (other than the occasional shudder that seems to be a known problem in the Tucson, see https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/offic...ml#post4530506 (Hyundai Tucson : Official Review) ; though I don't recall experiencing it much lately)

Is there a way to permanently enable the parking sensors without having to switch them on using the button? I would like to make it work like the one on BMW.

While Tucson’s sensors engages automatically while reversing or just for a while after putting the car in D, it doesn’t engage automatically when the car gets stuck in low speed traffic or while performing tight manoeuvres unless I press the button again.

Yes, it is. It depends on how the car is stored. It will mostly be without shelter. Standing idle in the sun for 6months can damage rubber parts/components quite a bit and even the paint quality, especially for Chennai's weather.

Any idea how soon 2019 new version of the Tucson coming? I think it's worth to wait until few more months despite some offers.

I reached my SA and he wasn't clear either on launch or any offers for outgoing model.

I read somewhere that the new version will come in 2020 with a BS6 engine. I guess it doesn't make sense (for hyundai) to launch the current international version in India.

After a very annoying sales experience from Laxmi Hyundai. We finally received our 2019 Hyundai Tucson petrol AT. Wanted the stardust grey shade but ended up having to settle for silver.

Apparently the dark grey shade have many ordered backed up at the factory and they won't deliver for another two months. Great car though. Haven't driven it more than a couple blocks in my layout. First impressions were great.
