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

Looks like dealers in Bangalore are way more responsive compared to Mumbai.
I registered for test drive on Hyundai's website. Received call from dealership. But They say they don't have vehicle for test drive. Other dealer said they only have petrol Test drive vehicle. Instead they asked me if I am interested in any other vehicle like Creta.
Looks dealers in Mumbai are not interested in selling Tucson and are happy selling Creta/Alcazar.

Congratulations ! Wish you exciting miles ahead.

Can you please tell me which model you bought and from which dealer?

I booked GLO and my friend booked 4WD with Advaith on the 6th and we are told cars 'may' arrive only by October end.

Apologies if this isn’t the right thread for this but isn’t the current edition a bit long in the tooth? I presume the new global 2021 Tucson should hit our shores soon?

Agree, but to some extent. It all depends on what one is looking for. I have seen many people indicating the interiors are a bit dated. I say, the layout of the dash may be a bit dated but not the feel of it. It can give a 50L car a run for its money with its fit, finish and quality levels. And no one comes close to provide the power, torque this vehicle provides (except for the big 3).

The new tucson is longer in length, which is not something I prefer in a city like Bangalore. I don't quite like the design either. I prefer something neat and classy. Needless to say, its just a personal opinion.

Given the exclusiveness this car provides today, it makes for an great option for someone looking into this category.

Absolutely. There are many people waiting for the new version.

It all boils down to what you are able to pay at the end of day. The new version is good looking, may even have better ride, handling, etc. But then, it would also command a 2/3 L higher price The current OTR price in Bangalore for lowest trim is 28.5L. Which means the new base version may have a price tag upwards of 30.5L atleast. Nobody seems to factor that in

Additionally, if you have read reports from Autocar India and Evo india, the new version that get's launched in India may only be a 7 seater. (I like to believe they have some inside news which we don't). The price will go further north.

As I said, price is a factor which somehow we don't speak about enough

Tucson brakes are certainly not confidence-inspiring on highways. It gives you a nasty feeling when applying emergency brakes although that's not a problem in city driving. Being CKU, Tucson parts are not easily available. I ordered some parts two months ago and still waiting for their arrival. The dealer is unsure himself and keeps blaming the delay on the Covid pandemic.

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

Hyundai does not want to sell this vehicle. Went to showroom and kept waiting for any sales staff to be competent enough to brief about this SUV. Alas no one knew much details, finally sales person said I will get my senior to call you back with details.

All they wanted to sell was Creta. Kept shoving it down my throat for a test drive. When I said Not interested then sales person gave me a dirty look as if saying you are being difficult

@Hyundai how will you sell a car if your sales staff is not even trained on the same?

Hyundai has a little different strategy. If you go to any showroom, you will most likely not find anyone to show around Tucson on the spot. Reason? - That is how it is structured.

Best option is to call the showroom and tell them that you are interested in Tucson. You will get a call back from a senior sales person (usually a guy who takes care of premium models like Elantra, Tucson etc.) He will schedule a test drive and come to your place of convenience and time within next few days depending on Car's availability. Showroom usually caters to other Cars till Creta.

I had a good experience and liked the car too! Although it is a different thing that I did not book the car and still waiting for that perfect car in 30L price bracket

In Bangalore, for cars in this segment, one just expresses one's interest in their online portal, and they call back, set up an appointment and come to your place with the car (usually on a weekday since they are busy on weekends)

That is how I test drove the Tucson, the MG Hector and also the Tata Safari.

I reckon it will be the same in other big cities. You should try that.

The sales guy who came with the Tucson understood why it is better than the Creta and understood that I knew it too. He admitted that Hyundai isn't trying very hard to sell the product. He was pretty candid about the Creta/Alcazar/Seltos's shortcomings in the safety department; said that the people who come to the showroom do not even ask about safety.

Agree with these comments. When I started out looking at Tucson, initial days were a bit difficult with one dealer. Then I switched to Trident and Voila, got a extremely capable SA assigned who knew the vehicle in and out. Only limited SAs are assigned for Tucsons, Konas and Elantras.

So, the idea is to find the right SA and dealership who would be able to provide a detailed ride, details and can help with early deliveries.

After being with the vehicles for 5 days, the initial pain with the first dealer is long forgotten. Please do not rule this out just because of dealer attitude.

I didnít get a chance to check the brakes at a very high speed, but at the speed of 80 or 90 Kmph, the brakes were fine, although the response from the paddle was weird. This was the same in city driving as well. There was a kind of spongy feel from the brake paddles while applying the brakes.


Also, the rear seats are positioned too low. Visibility from the back seat could be an issue for the person who is below 5í4.

Did you do PDI before you went ahead with the registration?

I did my PDI before I took the delivery. I found the brakes to be spongy then as well ,but since I had no issues with sponginess and the bite was quite good and the car stopped without any fuss I thought it was an non- issue. Actually of all the Tucson's I test drove I felt the same spongy nature of the brakes. I have a diesel GL(O).

Is there any setting that needs to be tweaked so that the sound comes through the rear speakers as well? The other day, my dad was in the back seat and he made this observation.
I have experienced the same. But my issue is little more complicated. This phenomena for my car is happening sporadically and at random. So it does not happen always but sometimes during the middle of a song. This has happened during playing of the radio/USB drive so I am guessing this is a speaker issue. I looked into the settings and did not find anything amiss or incorrectly configured. I called a technician from Advaith to check on the issue twice. In both the cases I was not able to reproduce the issue since for me this is not happening always but at random that too for couple of seconds.
