Thanks a lot Murali, advantages of being from mountains

In Himachal only two dealerships are authorized for selling Tucson one in Shimla and one in Solan, getting backdrop of mountains was inevitable.

Re: 2022 Hyundai Tucson Review

I am penning down a short review as I did a 450 KM road trip from Himachal to Gurgaon yesterday.

1) Gearbox and steering: Coming from Seltos GT line, the transition was fairly smooth. I found the steering to be fairly reliable in bends at a speed of 50-60 KMPH. For its size the body role was very well contained. Gearbox is simply excellent. Honestly, I could not differentiate between this and dual clutch gearboxes. Having 8 speeds also resulted in good fuel economy of 17 KM/ L. Which is not bad for first 1000 KMs

2) Suspension: Suspension absorbs much better than Seltos and stable at high speeds. Himachal to Gurgaon has very good roads so may be I need to do more testing of this.

3) ADAS: I think this feature will make me a better and safe driver. Initially I kept it on warning mode only but then decided to use it actively on highways and it performed perfectly (or rather I say as expected). Active cruise control and lane assist are a boon. I look forward to exploring this in various situations.

I did not get a chance to click pictures during travel but few more pictures of me taking delivery

It was delivered promptly and fits Tucson well. This version costs 6900.
How was the fitting of the mats and how much time did they take to deliver after you ordered. The site says 5-7 days manufacturing and 3-6 days delivery.
If possible can you post pics of the mats and how well they look with the interior.
Thanks in Advance

Quality of the mats is good. Fitting I would say is 95% accurate, and will improve more with time, once the mats starts to fit, in daily use. I stay in Delhi, and the mats were delivered to me in 3 days. The delivery guy came from noida.

Re: 2022 Hyundai Tucson Review

Just sharing my experience with the my new Tucson Signature AWD Disel. I have been using Renault Captur earlier, and I am still keeping that. Having taken delivery on late Feb 2023, I had driven about 2749 km till date, which includes two long drives: a) Chennai to Kovilpatti - about 1200 kms up and down Ė for the most part, my son was driving; and b) Chennai to Thane via Bangalore - about 1350 KMs with me at the wheel for the entire stretch (with a overnight halt near Hubli) with my wife as a passenger.

As many of you had already covered the good and bad about Tucson, I am focusing on few specific things here.

Delivery Experience:

I had started following Tucson from late 2021 itself and started liking it more and more as I see the review of the international models of it and was eagerly waiting for its launch in India. I didnít looked at any other cars at all and have made up my mind to go in for Tucson when it is launched in India. So, I booked for Black Tucson Signature AWD when the booking opened in July 2022, hoping that I will get my hands on to Tucson sometime around October but for whatever reason, could only get delivery in Feb 2023. May be the delay is due to my choice of colour, which was black. Of course, the dealer in between checked with me if I am OK with white colour, but it was a strict no from my side.

The dealer delivered the car with floor mats (free) and also promised to provide a Car Care Kit along with a Vacuum cleaner, but havenít got it till date.

Driving Experience:
  1. Collision Avoidance. I find this as a more helpful feature. Of course, I had experienced it doing its job on multiple occasions: few times while backing up and on few occasions while on the slow-moving city traffic (in Pune). Have experienced the warning on numerous occasions. To me, except on one occasion, when I thought I am in control to avoid a collision, the car applied the brakes. But, realized that its judgement was better than mine on that occasion. On the point some one hitting from behind in such situations, it would have happened any ways if the ADAS had not applied brakes, i.e. I would have hit the car in front than some one dashing on me from behind. So, according to me, this only will make me a better driver.
  2. On the Lane Keep Assist Ė I loved it the most. Here again, this feature will certainly make me a better driver, as it resists in allowing me switching lanes without me using the turn indicators.
  3. BlueLink Maps Ė Though Hyundai claims that its navigation system is far better than Googleís I find it lagging behind so much. It didnít even recognize few stretch of roads in Hiranandhani Maedows in Thane. Itís re-routing logic is also not up to my liking. The ETA calculated by Bluelink is grossly incorrect, whereas Google Maps is near accurate.
  4. Android Auto Ė It is a bit of inconvenience that I have to use a cable connection to use it. More so, it doesnít work with many data cables and I figured out that you need to buy a cable that suits USB 2.0. Would like to hear from others on this. Also, when you connect through cable, you donít have a proper place to keep the mobile, as if you keep it in its wireless charging spot, the phone overheats and in my case after few hours, Android had notified me that it had closed all running applications due to overheating. Then I kept the phone in the cup holder and then the heating issue is gone. Not sure, if there is an option to turn-off wireless charging, so that the phone can be kept on the charging pad while connected with USB cable. Need to explore the settings.
  5. I find BlueLink on the mobile is useful especially for remote locking. My Captur will lock itself as I park the car and go away from the car. But, Tucson is not doing that automatically and one has to explicitly lock it (May be there is some settings, which I am yet to explore). This is where I find bluelink useful, as it notifies me that the car is not locked, so that I can lock it remotely.

Others:

When we took off to Kovilpatti after few days of delivery, noticed that the instrument cluster was alerting about some faults and found that the rear right tyre pressure was too low - at around 12. To my surprise, all other tyres were showing about 46 ps while the recommended tyre pressure is 35. May be the dealer while delivering the car had over-inflated. Back on the warning of low pressure, we took a chance of just inflated the tyre in trouble (and also deflated the other tyres to 35 ps) at the next petrol pump and were monitoring the pressure on the instrument cluster continuously. While it was all fine for about 200 kms, it suddenly was flat. Except for the weird road noise, we could not feel the car drifting or any other symptom. Immediately we stopped the car at a safe place, changed the tyre with the spare wheel. The spare wheel just looks like a motorcycle tyre. Fortunately we could find a puncture shop within about 2 kms.

My son was of the view that the suspension seems to be softer than Captur, which I could not feel. But later I could see that when you hit on even small bumps, I could hear the loud noise of the suspension fully going down and hitting its limit. Whereas, I had never experienced this in Captur before.

As I drive more and more, started liking and got used to the various warning tones and without looking at the cluster, I would know what the warning is for. Good that Hyundai used a different tone for different actions / warnings.

My wife observed that the A/c is not up to the mark for the passengers at the back row. Unlike many other cars, there is no way to control the fan speed for the back seat passengers. Not sure, if there is some setting / option somewhere that I am yet to know.

Just about the Mumbai Trip, I basically work in Thane and used to do atleast couple of road trips to Chennai every year. While driving to Chennai, we stop-over at Chitradurga (Hotel Ojas by Ideal Yatri Niwas) and on the return, we stop-over at Varur(Hotel the Cult), a place near Hubli.
