Can you tell me which Dealer this is- I stay probably equidistant from the showrooms of Sai Auto and Modi and if either of them has both petrol/ diesel, will do a TD to experience the same. Also will prefer (first) to go to the showroom which does not insists of ₹5L booking amount.

Sure, i am speaking to Sai Auto. Also, when i pushed back he agreed to take a booking at 30k. Still he is asking for additional 5 lakhs when the car is allotted.

Sai auto has a Tucson for test drives handy. i have taken 3 test drives so far

Have also asked Modi for a quote.

Also, the petrol is not as much fun or stable to drive. Please insist to test drive the car you want to consider. There is a huge difference in how both versions behave.

Thanks for the info. I remember the sales person at Sai Powai branch (they have the same one person for Elantra/ Tucson) trying all the tricks during to push the sale. Extremely good as a Sales guy who could be appointed to sell anything but a bit tricky too. Wonder if this is something similar you are facing at whichever branch you are interacting with.

Checked with Sai Auto (Powai). They don't have the petrol version for a TD. Did you TD this somewhere else?

Hi, Shreem Hyundai, Mahalaxmi has Petrol Tucson. I test drove both Petrol and Diesel however finalised Petrol GLS. Yesterday I arrived Delhi from Mumbai after riding 1500 km / 25 hours with family and fully loaded boot. Never felt any lack of power or torque for my driving style. Mostly used Eco mode except in Ghats where I used Comfort or Sports mode. My average fuel consumption is 12 kmpl for this journey. Hope this information is useful.

Excellent, will check with them. Considering your trip, how easy was it to perform quick overtakes and come back to lane (am assuming you have the manual version as per message above)?

Finally have decided to go with the diesel Tucson. Was a tough decision but super happy with the choice made. Will update here after talking to SA for further details.

Hi, I have 2021 fully loaded automatic version, Petrol GLS. Overtakes were fine, diesel version would be better though. No complains though.

I took mine from Sai Auto Powai. The vehicle delivered was punctured, they did not provide the complementary fuel saying it is already filled, however it did not appeared so.

Most importantly, one of the tires had no manufacturing date mentioned. I have been chasing them three months now but it has not been addressed except lip services. Just got your information.

Thanks for sharing that. Lip service is exactly what i experienced, couldn't have described it better. My experience with the set of SAs I have interacted with there has not been that great, all of them are polite but not really dotting the i's.

Sorry to hear about your experience, that's the entire showroom not stepping up and not just the SA.

Thanks @rahulraag ! I spoke about this chat and got a 1.5L discount from a different showroom. The fact that we booked 2 cars together, could have played a part in the discount. Now the wait begins. Apparently Hyundai is using available chips for the GLS/AWD model rather than GL(O). May have to wait for quite a while.

Re: 2020 Hyundai Tucson Facelift Review : 2.0L Diesel with 8-speed AT

After reading several ownership reviews here test drove the Hyundai Tucson. Thanks to all members who have posted and it was really valuable in selecting the car for a test drive. Hyundai has cracked a great engine and GB combination and the car has super power from word go. Had a chance to Test Drive the car for 30 kms on the Chennai ORR. First thing i felt that it beats the Compass hands down. I had cancelled a 80 anniversary booking in June. The only confusion is to go for it now or wait for the update vehicle. I am using a 2015 Vento and happy to use the car for more time. I dont want to see a brand new vehicle launched with in 6 months which will really make me sad. Even if the new one is expensive than the current one, I am fine as its surely a better buy than investing in 33.5 L on Compass in my view as I dont need AWD. Request if any member can share a potential launch date of for updated model.

Awesome, that sounds about right. It is the same discount I got in March!

Whoever I have talked to at Hyundai is totally in the dark about the launch of the updated model. They speculate that it may come only late 2022 or early 2023 and they will skip the hybrid version here. But they were also trying to sell a current model to us, so I will take that with a pinch of salt.

Congrats on the booking. I also booked the AWD GLS in starry night over the last few days.

1.5 lakhs is a good deal, i streched the booking by over 10 days negotiated real hard but still could only manage a 1.4 lakh discount in Mumbai.

Did you get a tentative delivery date?

As I said, it think booking 2 cars together worked well. I am hoping to get insurance done outside and should get another 50-60k savings.
