Hello Umairalvi,

Here is the picture of the Tucson sold in USA it comes with projectors setup. Hyundai might add this feature during the Tucson facelift.

Even if we order the headlights abroad and get it Hyundai won't assist with the installation or provide any support!

We all have a responsibility towards making roadways a safer place for everyone. These modifications are dangerous and can put many motorists at risk (new drivers, senior citizens). Let’s do the right thing and help each other out. As it is there are a lot of things related to safety which are not in our control e.g. road conditions, unscientific speed breakers etc on the highways. I wish you take take the right call.

A person has modified a car does not make it the right thing to do. It also does not make it the legal thing to do. There is a whole thread dedicated to whacky mods on Team-BHP. Please make roads safer for all of us.

Hope that you know the the high beam assist feature of the Tucson automatically lowers the beam when it senses oncoming traffic. It does that for a reason.

Gurugram, November 23rd, 2022: Hyundai Motor India Ltd, country’s first smart mobility solutions provider and the largest exporter since inception, today showcased the ultimate engineering capability of its latest SUV – the all-new Hyundai TUCSON, with an expedition comprising of 10 units of the all-new Hyundai TUCSON scaling the heights of the fabled Zoji La pass despite encountering extremely challenging weather and terrain.

Commenting on the success of this expedition, Mr. Unsoo Kim, MD & CEO, Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL), said, “We are delighted by this exceptional display of sheer engineering finesse displayed by the all-new Hyundai TUCSON during the expedition. The all-new Hyundai TUCSON has been built to endure the toughest of challenges while ensuring a high level of comfort and convenience for passengers. In our attempt to showcase the true manufacturing excellence of Hyundai, we have successfully displayed perfect synchrony between Man and Machine, with our expedition of SUVs overcoming all odds. This achievement stands testament to the multitude of men and women across the globe who worked tirelessly to conceptualize, develop and manufacture the all-new Hyundai TUCSON, ensuring the indomitable spirit of Hyundai in each SUV that rolls out of our plant.”

Setting out from Srinagar, the convoy comprising only of the all-new Hyundai TUCSON began its journey to scale the heights of Zoji La Pass also known as the Mountain Pass of Blizzards. The convoy’s ascent commenced from Sonamarg. Crossing over challenging terrain and roads laden with a fresh coat of snow and ice, the all-new Hyundai TUCSON displayed impeccable engineering capability as it scaled the heights of Zoji La pass at 11 649 ft. With on ground temperatures at the time, ranging from -3˚C to -14˚C, the Zoji La pass meted out some of the harshest and inhospitable climatic conditions experienced in this region, during this time of the year. The convoy of all-new Hyundai TUCSON drove 124 Kms from Sonamarg to Kargil in sub-zero temperatures, snow/ icy road conditions in twilight.

The challenging terrain and weather conditions, resulted in the ultimate proving ground for the all-new Hyundai TUCSON. Equipped with HTRAC All-Wheel Drive, the all-new Hyundai TUCSON was ready to tackle every obstacle thrown its way. Empowering drivers to take on challenging roads while offering them different terrain modes ensured the journey was smooth. Using Multi Terrain Modes – drivers were able to adjust the powertrain to suit challenging road and weather conditions for SNOW, MUD and SAND settings thereby ensuring maximum traction when the going got really tough.

PPowered by R 2.0 l diesel engine, offering a max power of 137 kW (186 PS) / 4 000 r/min (Best in Segment) and Max torque of 416 Nm (42.42 kgm) / 2 000~2 750 r/min (Best in Segment), the all-new Hyundai TUCSON offered impeccable performance. The expedition comprising of the all-new Hyundai TUCSON, were all stock models and were not equipped with any specialist equipment, special tires or snow chains. Convoy members driving the all-new Hyundai TUCSON also remarked on the significant levels of grip and traction provided by the SUV even while encountering snow and ice over the roads, while being comfortable in the cabin thanks to Dual Zone FATC and heated seats.

There is a similar noise in my car as well since day 1, only noticeable at slow speeds on uneven tarmac as you rightly said, I also noticed this same noise while closing the front left door.

I had taken my car to the service centre within days of getting it, I was asked to drop the car for a day so they could diagnose the car and check the jarring popping sound but I refrained to do so as the car was brand new.

There is also a constant rattling noise from the glove compartment and few squeaks coming from the rear seats.

I just hope the folks at Hyundai can get around it.

I checked for the same noise in the test drive vehicle. That vehicle also had the same problem. So the service center manager concluded that it is an innate problem in Tucson model itself and not confined to just my vehicle. I was unhappy with the explanation and took it up with the company personnel. Expected very soon for inspection. I feel that noise is coming from the sunroof. Please tilt or open the sunroof a little and check. That noise is disappearing.

I have driven around 1000 kms and I haven't faced the noise issue till now. So cannot be a model issue.

Default Re: 2022 Hyundai Tucson Review

I have recently struck a deal on my Hyundai Creta 2020 Diesel SX(O), which has done 35K on the odo. I have enjoyed my car, every single time I have been on it. There is nothing wrong with it. The drive on Creta is split nearly 50:50 between highway and city. I also travel to my hometown in Bihar (from Delhi) mostly by car as the roads these days are much better and I do not mind 14-15 hrs of journey. I have done 7 round trips between Delhi-Bihar. Reason for selling primarily is space inside the car. As the family is growing, so is the space demand of the boot and rear seats.

Now, the most struggling and time-consuming part starts - search for a new car. On papers there are a lot of options but when you starting considering the vehicles, you end up finding out something or the other is missing. My requirements are basic -space, looks, reliability, mileage. There is no car which ticks all your requirements, there is something always lacking. But, you have to make a decision. Cars which I have been checking out -

1. Volkswagen Tiguan - Superb looks from outside. Great boot space. Looks really sorted in its dimensions. Drives well. The interior is somewhat lacking for a ~40L car. Plus the mileage is too low. A trip to Bihar and back would cost me almost 3 times of what my Creta was doing.

2. Skoda Kodiaq - This car again looks fabulous. May be more spacious that what Tiguan has. BUT, they do not have availability till the first quarter of 2023 - is what the sales person from Ring Road Gurgaon told me. When Skoda launched the car, it was sold out for nearly a year and the supply issue is still there. Very sad state of affairs for a great looking car.

3. M&M XUV700 - Again a beautiful car. The design has grown on me over time. The interior looks amazing. I really wanted to own this one, BUT, availability issue. The AX7 LP trip in both diesel and petrol will be available post March - is what the sales person from Koncept Mahindra, Gurgaon told me.

4. New Innova Hycross - This car ticks all my requirements - mileage, space, looks, reliability BUT, the high-end trims have 2 seats in the middle row. I cannot imagine a family of 5 with some luggage travelling comfortably on it. How would we manage? I am sad that Toyota did this.


Hyundai Tucson:

It tick my basic requirements. The car does not have a very high waiting time, which is what has been promised by the sales person. The car comes at premium price but every car in the segment has a price which they do not justify. It is spacious. It has looks. It's mileage is not bad. Hyundai is reliable, at least they have great customer support. I have had an amazing experience with Hyundai's sales and servicing. Himgiri Hyundai in Gurgaon does a very nice job - timely reminders, pickup and drop service, and they listen to your queries. So I think I will go with Tucson.


I still have a query though and request fellow BHPians to help me out. I am not able to decide between a petrol and diesel Tucson. I drive quite relaxed and I have sworn not to drive over 60 in city and 100 on the highways. The petrol version is priced nearly 4 lakhs less than the diesel one. Should I go for petrol version? My Creta is a diesel one and Creta's petrol top trim and diesel trop trim do not have that much price difference. Please help me decide on this this one.

I completely agree on the Innova - I love the idea of the ottoman seats as most of the time it is used by 2 people or so at most, but it goes against what the Innova's use case it : transporting a family across cities.
It will be a tough dilemma once I am in the market - though I suspect Toyota pricing may make the dilemma somewhat easier

Coming to the Tucson : The diesel has 2 big advantages - a mind-blowing mid-range for those quick overtakes; and better fuel economy (especially in the city (I expect a 3-4kmpl difference), and while cruising as well due to the added gears. If the price difference can be offset or reduced to palatable levels given your high usage - you may just enjoy the Diesel variant.

I would suggest you to go ahead with Diesel engine.So After driving Creta diesel proper upgrade will be to go ahead with Tucson Diesel.

Creta Diesel - 126 PS with 260 Nm Max torque (1st Gen)

Tucson Petrol - 156 PS with 192 Nm Max torque

Tucson Diesel - 186 PS with 416 Nm Max torque


Note - If you do lot of long drives diesel is the one you need to choose trust me you will never regret on your decision.

Okay friends. Here is what I did in the evening. I went to the dealership and did a test drive of the Tucson. The vehicle is surely bigger than Creta, felt a lot like Creta but everything is so premium about Tucson. The rear seat is more spacious. There is massive boot space. The digital cluster, rear camera, infotainment everything is so cool and advanced in the Tucson. I could not resist and did the booking. I booked Diesel Signature 2WD White dualtone. I assumed I would not need AWD, I hope I am not wronged by future needs. The delivery promise on papers is 5-6 months but the sales person promised to try his level best. I had purchased my Creta from the same dealership.

Also a quick thought - the diesel engine in Creta is super silent and so is in the Tucson. I am not sure why Jeep Compass, Harrier and XUV700(but less) are so noisy from outside.

Quick question - If I don't do off-road travel at all, is the 2WD justified? I hope the power of diesel engine in 2WD should be enough. Please put your thoughts.

Congratulations!!

Since you don't do off-roading, a 2WD should be enough for your requirements. AWD anyways only comes into play only at lower speeds when the need arises such as during off-roading.

1-month driving experience for my Hyundai Tucson .

Driving:
- Little lag when shifting from 1st gear to 2nd.
- Picks up speed and is smooth post-2nd gear.
- The "Eco" mode is a little lazy, and will not be interested in enthusiastic driving. The average, in this mode, is good. I usually use this in city driving
- The "Sport" mode is much more fun as compared to other modes.
- The cluster lights and the ambient lighting on doors change based on the driving mode, unless configured in separate colours specifically
- Drove in heavy rain. The lights are bright enough.
- Auto-wipers are smart. The speed was adjusted based on the rain and was apt.
- The "auto-hold" feature is helpful in traffic. Once turned on, it activates automatically when full brakes are applied. No light though on the button to know the status. However, the sign is visible near the speedometer, whether turned on or off.

ADAS:
- Car auto-braked twice to prevent a forward collision. I think my habit of driving too close will change now.
- While reversing as well, it auto-braked when there was a cyclist who came too close from a different direction.
- While reversing, the car coming from another direction was also detected. Very useful feature.
- The 360-degree camera resolution is simply amazing. It's clear and accurate. I used it in heavy traffic and while crossing narrow roads.
- When stepping out, all 4 doors give a warning of traffic coming from behind. It beeps continuously if we try to open the door in traffic.
- The location, if turned on in the system, keeps on reminding with a message as "Children crossing ahead". The notification comes from the left-hand side speaker in the back. Rest speakers are muted.
- The turn-cameras which are integrated with the indicators show a "red" warning on side mirrors and a continuous beep sound if there is someone in the blind spot.

Misc:
- The quiet mode is a unique one. If turned on, the sub-woofer and the rear speakers are muted. Only the front speakers work. Helpful if someone is sleeping in the back.
- There is a "Star button" on the touch console. This button acts as a shortcut for a few settings. I have reserved for opening the calling list as the other options didn't look like being used frequently.
- The car tailgate can be opened from the inside by just pressing the button once. However, if we need to close it, the button needs to be pressed continuously. Not sure if this is the expected behavior, still need to confirm. The person who came for the demo also didn't know about it.
- The sunroof/moonroof is huge, however, the glass doesn't open to the full. Ideally, the expectation was that 50% of the glass should open, but it opens ~40%.
- The memory seats are simply awesome. Moreover, when we park the car and open the driver door, the seats move a little behind to provide more space to move out.
- The front door handles have a small white light when we go near the car with the key in our pocket. Also, the side mirrors open up to welcome you, similar to i20 and other Hyundai cars.
- As soon we get into the seat, a nice welcome tune play on the music screen, and the cluster.

Bluelink:
- All the details related to car location, driving, trips, car status, etc. are accurately displayed in the app.
- The car lock/unlock, engine start, horn activation to find where the car is parked, etc. are fun to use from the app. A couple of times I didn't carry my key and used the app to get some stuff from the car by unlocking and locking it.

Few clicks:
- My father-in-law also bought a Tucson 1-week after me. He got a diesel one though. The first 2 pics show the comparison. No visible difference in the models. I remember AWD has an HTRAC badge on the bottom right.

2022 Hyundai Tucson Review-comparison_2.jpg

- The 3rd pic shows the red dashboard when driving in sport mode.
2022 Hyundai Tucson Review-img8152.jpg

- The 4th pic shows a notification when the car in the front moves and we don't.
2022 Hyundai Tucson Review-img8165.jpg

- The last pic shows a short trip to Wai.

Looking forward for more drives .

Has anyone got any information regarding the accessories for the new Tucson? I understand that the dealers are also clueless on when they would get the accessories.
I was waiting for the side step and the 3D mats.

.
The middle row captain seats is optional. You can have bench seats instead on the higher models
