Hyundai Tucson - the long forgotten SUV comes in its newest avatar, the Hyundai Tucson iX35! Hyundai’s Tucson SUV has been faded from the people’s memories though it had a nice design, a diesel engine and compact structure. An honest appraisal would be that there are majority of Indians who might be unaware of its existence in the market. But, the Tucson SUV is definitely present and now the auto major has offered a revamped variant of the same i.e. the Hyundai Tucson iX35, a sensational looking urban SUV. The new version of the alienated Hyundai Tucson SUV is an eye candy on which everyone would like to banquet their eyes upon.
Hyundai Motors, the 2nd leading car seller in India, has all set to launch new D+ Segment SUV Hyundai Tucson ix35 after the grand success of i10 and i20. Thanks to Hyundai’s so-called “Fluidic Sculpture” design philosophy, it is stunning to look at and also benefited from an all-new engine line-up. With the premium offerings in the Indian market, Hyundai hasn’t done wonders. The products of the Hyundai such as the Elantra, Tucson, Terracan, and Sonata have died a slow death. But the brand perception is altering fast and the company is eager on cashing on this; the iX35 or the all-new Tucson is the next product for India.
Hyundai ix35 has finest interiors and the appearance of the car is all ample to get the eyes raised. Being an SUV, Hyundai ix35 will have sufficient power and performance. The ix35 will be situated below the premium soft-roaders such as Renault Koleos to compete in the premium SUV segment. In terms of look, the new Tucson has got a modern and sharp look as a bike can ever get. As well, it follows the Hyundai’s new authentic DNA ‘fluidic’ design that has been proved to be a showstopper for Hyundai Verna and Hyundai Eon.

Basically, the Tucson is existed with a single diesel engine option of 2.0 L in capacity. At present, the same engine is tweaked a little to show some extraordinary performance. In all likelihood, the new Hyundai Tucson India will arrive with a 134Bhp 2.0-litre CRDi (diesel) engine that should provide it enormous performance in addition to the fuel economy. It will provide 177 PS and 343 Nm of maximum power and torque numbers. To see at a brighter side of the car, the fuel efficiency had been a sore point. The engine of the car will be mated with a 6-speed manual gearbox to begin with though afterward the company will also offer its customers an automatic version.
In the International market, the ix35 engine options available are:
- 1.6 Gdi 6 speed 2WD Manual: Power – 133bhp Torque – 165Nm
- 1.7Crdi 6 speed 4WD Manual: Power – 114bhp Torque – 260Nm
- 2.0Crdi 6 speed 2WD\4WD Manual: Power – 134bhp Torque – 320Nm
- 2.0Crdi 6speed 4WD Automatic: Power – 181bhp Torque – 392Nm
The hexagonal grille that previewed at the 2009 Geneva Motor Show on the Hyundai ix-onic concept moves into mass production on the Hyundai ix35 and gives a defining look which will serve to unify the family of upcoming Hyundai products. To attain the preferred dynamic and sporty look, Hyundai ix35 has an aggressive belt line joined with a low-to-the-ground feel which is endorsed by the optional 225/55 R18 wheels.
The interior look of the car is more chic. For improved comfort to users, the designers have made extra legroom and headroom, whilst minimizing the overall height of the vehicle. As well, the lines echo the dynamic flow of the sheet metal. In the cabin, the spaciousness is also increased by the new dual-panel panoramic sunroof, which is benefitting the front and rear passengers. The center panel of the new Tucson can either open tilt or open wholly by sliding up and above the rear panel.
If we take a look on the safety features of the car, the SUV gets all the points uncompromisingly. The new Tucson is factually equipped with airbags for the safety of front as well as rear passengers to stay away from the anterior and side-long impacts. Furthermore, the SUV comes loaded with the most advanced active and also passive safety measures such as the new hill descent control feature to set it class aside in the league. All these advanced features will assist the car in establishing a new yardstick as far as the safety parameter goes.
The Korean giant might keep the pricing of this new Hyundai Tucson ix35 in the range of Rs 17 to Rs 19 lac. With such a pricing, it will be straightforwardly considered as a rivalry for forthcoming and already available cars such as Tata Aria, Renault Duster, Mahindra XUV500, etc.
