It did occur to me initially, but after getting it checked thereís an issue with the amplifier which has been sorted temporarily, in case it happens again will get it replaced.

I have been reading about this same issue on many forums in the US too, it seems like an underlying issue with the new Tuscon.

Today morning only, i was suggesting it to be a rat bite and what an irony, I got the same issue now. I was riding over a speed breaker and the speakers went silent just like that. Now when I search the US forums, could understand that it is a common issue in Tucson and there's even a technical bulletin for the same. Will take it to the Dealer instead of reconnecting the negative terminal, so that it is documented. If it happens again, I can then ask for the amplifier change.

Ohh what bad luck!! Yes itís been an prevailing issue for the cars manufactured from 04/22 onwards.

Yes likewise, now that the service centre has rectified the issue, the service advisor has said that if it happens again, they will put it in for replacement.

I took the car to the service center today. The SA told me that already few cars came for the same issue and they are aware of it. They fixed it temporarily for me and also told me that he will raise the order for the replacement amplifier. So i need to visit them as soon as they get the amplifier.

Re: 2022 Hyundai Tucson Review

Nice review. I am also contemplating buying the petrol version as my running is not enough to recover the almost 4L price difference.

Can you tell me how much mileage are you getting in city driving and highway driving? Also how many kms have you driven till now?

Cheers!

Re: 2022 Hyundai Tucson Review

So folks finally getting down to writing an update post the vehicle delivery. I have had my Diesel Signature 2WD in Amazon Grey for over a couple of months now and have done over 2K kms. My driving has been around 75% city and 25% highway. Bunch of things I will be writing about, are talked about in some previous posts as well, but would be good to call them out anyways.

Ownership Summary:
I am absolutely happy with the vehicle. Solid build, well equipped and great to drive.


Some observations.
  • The new Tucson is a looker. People turn around and look and especially kids who are all enamoured by its DRLs.
  • I myself have been impressed by its entry when the valet drives it into the hotel lobby. Interestingly, as it is not a really well-known popular model, there is inherent curiosity about what car it might be.
  • I had test driven a petrol the few times and had actually found it adequate for my use. The diesel definitely drives a bit heavier as compared to the petrol. It's absolutely not an issue, and you would nor know unless you have driven both of them a bit.
  • Car has been returning a mileage of around 13.5 kml with some mixed use (75% city and a lot of idling time)
  • Auto hold is a super fantastic feature.
  • 360 degree views are great, and cameras have good resolution
  • Remote start function is pretty useful.
  • Electronically operated tailgate is really useful, and I don't know how will ever go back to the manual closing boots. My wife really likes the feature.
  • Rain sensing wipers - People have talked about it being a hit or a miss. I have felt the same, but I have seen the feature where the speed of the wiper blades is responsive based on the speed of the car - so if the car is faster the start and speed of the wipers would be faster. The unpredictability comes at slower speeds. Will need to observe it a few more times
  • Sound system is ok. AM not an audiophile but was initially not super impressed with the output. Played around for a bit and moved the epicentre of the sound (dont know the correct term) from somewhere in the front row to the passenger row and that dramatically improved the in-car audio experience.
  • My previous car was a Renault Duster and I am both surprised and slightly sad to say that although the Tucson rides really well, I believe the Duster handled rough patches on the with slightly more refinement.
  • Voice commands work well, and they are just not limited to car functions. I can ask the car for temperature in London, the World cup semifinal scores and similar stuff, and it always got back with the information.
  • I am planning a road trip and have been comparing the boot capacity of the Tucson to my Duster and I think the boot may not be as generous in space as it looks. it's by no means small, but I need to see what all I can stuff in there during my road trip, before I make my final call.
  • I have been driving in either smart or ECO mode. Not much of a difference honestly. The Eco is definitely slightly slow to pull, but again the midrange and over all perf is adequate
  • I drove on the sport mode on the highway, and the car holds the revs much higher than the other modes. The engine sounds just too busy...that too unnecessarily in this mode. the normal mode does not feel you wanting for power anyways.

Driver Assistance
  • Much has been written about it by other users. I will share my personal experiences:
  • I am not a spirited driver and I think that helps in minimising any surprises the ADAS might throw in.
  • By simply keeping your foot off the accelerator or braking slightly more often than usual definitely seems to help reduce the warnings.
  • The warnings still come during regular driving, but they have been warning and not any emergency braking. With all the feedback in the forum, I am very conscious about that happening and try and be extra cautious wherever I can.
  • The warnings seem to have been tuned to be a bit more safer/cautious, than our regular daily driving styles.
  • Emergency braking has kicked in for me only at crawl/parking speeds - once while I was negotiating a parking and the car though there is not enough space, and then once when I was reversing, and it detected an oncoming vehicle. Both the times, the braking was helpful - you do get slightly surprised though. I am sure that every time the car tries to take control, you will continue to be a little surprised/shaken as the car pre-empts (or at least tries to) something which the driver can't.
  • On a traffic signal or stop and go traffic, if the car ahead of you has started to move, and you have not, the car prompts you to move as well - useful feature
  • Using maps and other sensors the central console warns me of schools, speed bumps and road speed limits.

ADAS on Highways
  • Every other week I do a 60 KM run on a very well laid out stretch of highway (30km each way) and have been using adaptive cruise control regularly
  • With adaptive cruise control (ACC) the car will follow the lane and maintain distance from the vehicles in the front. It takes some getting used to honestly.
  • Both the auto braking and the auto acceleration used for ACC are very aggressive and this also takes some getting used to. While driving you do get a sense of when the car might go into braking and look behind to see how close the other cars behind you are.
  • I have done a bunch of these round trips and have always used the ACC throughout the highway journey, even though before the start of the trip, I think about driving without assistance - just to enjoy the driving. You can get used to it during highway driving
  • You will have to find the sweet spot of how much attention you need to pay on every aspect of the drive vs letting the ACC so most of the stuff.
  • ADAS/ACC does not seem to recognise traffic cones on highway lanes - actually honestly, I myself have not tried it as the car will some to a sudden halt on the highway (It is not autopilot enabled...its just ACC). This is one place where I take manual control and then move back to ACC after crossing the lane diversion.
  • At high speeds if a car cuts in front of you (comes into your lane aggressively) and continues its speed I expected the ADAS to do some sort of speed correction, but it does not. This leads to some apprehension as the car in front is now closer to you than your prescribed distance and in other cases your car would have slowed down. I can understand the logic and even agree with it at a design level, but its slightly different from the otherwise expected behaviour of the car's ACC
  • Lane change during ACC can be enabled by a lane change blinker - this works well on straighter stretches with lesser traffic and is slightly unpredictable in other cases.

Unexpected Issue/Minor Electronic malfunction
So this was one thing which I was really surprised with. All audio/sound/speaker systems in the car just stopped working while on a drive one day. The radio was on but no sound output. The BT connected Spotify playlist was playing, but no sound output. The map navigation was working, but no sound output. I reset the media setup and tried a bunch of things, but nothing seemed to work, I took the car to the Hyundai SS where they identified as an inconsistent behaviour/current in an audio unit. It was not a fuse. It was a minor fix, which made the unit work again. To be on the safe side they suggested a free replacement of the part. The service center staff was super helpful and was also knowledgeable about the car. The manner in which my issue was handled gives me some confidence in the service center staff and their capabilities. The part would take 3-4 weeks to come from Korea (this would be something which I knew before committing to this vehicle).

So that's all I could remember for now. I think it is a great purchase for anyone who is sitting on the fence and also for folks waiting for their deliveries. Happy driving folks.

I'm a duster owner too and planning to upgrade next year. Being spoiled by the ride quality of duster, the only upgrades i can think of are compass and crysta for the ride and tractability. May i know what made you choose on tucson?

Re: 2022 Hyundai Tucson Review

Please bear with me if it is a stupid question. How do you guys open the tailgate when the security guys at a mall or office wants to check your trunk? I have to move the gear selector to "P" and then press the Tailgate open button near the steering column. Is there a way to open the tailgate without changing the gear selector from Drive mode?
In my other cars, I just press the "Unlock" button in the door panel and then anybody can open the tailgate manually from outside.

I was in the same boat as you upgrading from Duster and I personally didn't like Tucson ride quality. There were too many sideways swinging on bad roads. I have finalised Jeep Meridian. It felt to me more robustly built and the ride quality was much closer to Duster. At high speeds, it is significantly more stable than Duster and just glides on highways. With almost 3 lakh discounts I was getting bigger, more abuse friendly, a capable off-roader, and almost similarly featured (except ADAS) car for the same price as Tucson. But yes, Jeep doesn't score very well on reliability and after-sales service, so it's a calculated risk I have taken.

That being said, Tucson does appeal to the head more with reliability and Hyundai service network, and a unique-looking car. It's still a very good option in the price range.

You can’t open without slotting the lever in “P” but here is what you can do.
Since this car does not have a closed boot, you can ask the security to peep inside through rear as well as as side quarter glasses. Even after rear parcel cover some portion is still open and one can peep inside. This works for me in malls. However may not work in some of high security 5 star hotels.
Try once to see what the guard says.

Has anyone used this? I have a 2019 Tucson that's still in warranty and I'm reluctant to get a dash-cam hardwired externally. My SA was very clear that Hyundai wouldn't help hard-wiring a dash-cam and it does potentially void the warranty. Not a fan of dangling wires either so looking for the best option to install a front a rear dash-cam.

Hi new owners!

So I'm looking for some experiences for Signature Petrol owners. How is your experience of driving in city/highways. If you have driven more than 1000 KMs, has there been any improvements in mileage. Any issues that you've faced with ADAS or the vehicle in general.

Any mileage improvements you've noticed?

Of what I have seen, the French have one of the best suspension setups and are suitable for Indian conditions. One thing to remember is that the TD vehicles, including the Tucson have very high tire pressures which make the test drives very bumpy. Ones I bought the vehicle I got the TP down to the recommended 36 ( I generally keep it higher by1-2 PSI), the firmness of the ride reduces. The Duster ride has been often compared to much higher segment cars and I think I was fine with my next car being able to just come close to it.

On why I chose the Tucson -
  • Feature rich
  • I personally love the looks
  • Decent ride quality
  • Not a very large vehicle (like the Fortuner) and neither too compact for rear pax (Jeep, Q3, X1)
  • Good engine specs - the diesel spec is very similar to the other entry level luxury offerings

I currently drive a Hyundai Creta, Diesel 2016 and looking for an upgrade since last few months. Test drove Tiguan (Petrol) and Tuscon (Diesel) and have paid the booking amount for the Tuscon, Singature Diesel (2WD) verson 1 month ago. After reading through DSG problems and stiff suspension, didn't go ahead with Tiguan.

I have always been a fan of the big 3 German cars and test drove BMW X1 couple of months ago. Since the current X1 will be replaced soon and there was no date as to when the facelift will be available in India, I was not too interested.

My preference is 5 seater premium SUV, mostly for city drive in Bangalore. No preference in fuel type. Budget is around 50L but can slightly extend.

While booking the Tuscon, I was told the delivery might take anything between 6 to 9 months. With the new Audi Q3 delivery starting from January 2023 (SA informed me and taking a test drive next week) and read somewhere that BMW X1 will be available in India from Feb 2023, I am entering a phase of eternal dilemma that car buyers usually go through - should I wait for the new X1 or continue with Tuscon or skip both and book Q3? Looking for directions from the experts here. Thanks.

Indeed, have been told by dealer Tucson assembly suspended for a month and will only resume deliveries after 9th Feb,also market news that prices will increase in Jan.

The eternal dilemma will therefore continue- silver lining here is most people have booked more than one one car( can't blame them) so there's always going to be a cancellation shakeout.

Happy Holidays allhttps://www.team-bhp.com/forum/images/smilies/cool.png
