Did you get to test drive Petrol variant ? When I was looking to make a choice between Petrol/Diesel Tucson last year, my dealer had only diesel variant available for TD.
Thanks, yet to get the spelling (pronunciation too) right, must practice

Yes I did, My dealer (Hyundai own dealership actually) had a petrol test drive variant which had a good low end but kind of ok in the middle range but like i said for a city use, quite adequate, loaded with features & hopefully better resale value 5 years down the lane.

Buy a bs4 engine car. You will never get discounts like this on the bs6 models. Also govt has assured that all bs4 models registered before March 31st 2020 will continue to their entire lifespan. Neither does the fuel affect the engine. Might be 3 percent over 15 years. Plus bs6 engines will have less mileage.

Just wait till 20th when GST cut proposal will be tabled at the GST council meet. After that book your car. It’s a wonderful car.

That is a very good price indeed. Waiting till 20th for any GST benefits; if any dealer matches the above price, will book one immediately.

What was your waiting period like?

Yeah 26L on road for the 4x4 diesel gls is great pricing. Might as well get this to replace my 1st gen santa fe. The R series hyundai diesel engine is awesome. Manual i have is fun to drive, hopefully the auto gearbox doesn't kill the power of the engine. At 26L for top model makes no sense to go for Fortuner/Endeavor for me unless off roading. Bit smaller than the Santa Fe but should be fine for me.

Man I envy you. 26L for a top end Tucson ??? The thing touches 34L OTR here in Blore. Only if it were priced the same here, I wouldíve traded my Verna in for this anyday. I feel itís the perfect upgrade from my Verna.

This kind of exorbitant pricing means I will be keeping my Verna for a long time.

Congratulations on your new ride. Wish you loads of happy miles with it.

Did you get exchange bonus or was it straight discount to 26 on road?

Sorry, didn't understand the municipal tax part. Can you please elaborate?

Rumors surface again regarding the facelift for the festive season.

https://www.zigwheels.com/news-featu...5033/#leadform

Couple other online websites reporting the same. They should have just launched it early this year or this summer. I don't know why they had to delay this facelift for so long.

Makes sense as they are officially offering 2lac discounts and possibly more if they intend to clear the stock before the facelift launch.

My home address is in GANDHINAGAR. Itís outside the municipality limits. Thus 1 per cent municipal tax is not applicable on me.

Wow 26 for Diesel GLS is an amazing price..I paid a little over that but for petrol GLS (I did get a similar offer for a 2018 diesel model with no sunroof which I didnít opt for) ..however I am very happy about my choice!

The car is perfect for me & i love it because
- everything is automated (keyless, auto headlamps, auto boot, orvm etc) just get in and simply drive
- Perfect length for parking considering my constraints at office & outside
- what a looker in black (Yup its a dust magnet but I have drivers at home so )
- superb driving position & big panoramic sunroof
- City mileage of 8-9 km/L & highway 11 km/L
- Silent petrol but average mid-range (the turbo diesel is better here)
- Much against my friends advice I upgraded my Tyres (255/45/R18) and changed alloys as it has always been a tradition so far on all my cars and I am happy with my decision
- blackened the fog lamp a little and changed the headlamp to white to make it consistent with the dual barrel headlamp
- 8 out of 10 think its Creta but that works for me as it avoid unwarranted attention (ok fine it does hurt a little bit)

Anyway enough with the talking, please find some pics 😄

Wow, what a looker. Having had to skip black on the Octavia my next car will be black again. Black looks so good especially if you maintain it daily.


Can you tell which month did you buy it and how long did they take to give the black color car?

Could you please help me out with what modifications you have carried out with your headlamps? Details, links or any other insight would be helpful.

Thank You .

Thanks, maintaining it is important and so far so good.

I booked it in August & got it delivered in next week (apparently they have 19 cars in stock at that time.

I changed the headlamp using the Genome HID conversion kit & fog lamp to Genome LED conversion kit, both which were plug & play for white light instead of the yellow light.
