Hyundai is expected to offer a sportier Tucson N-line that will be equipped with a 2.5-liter turbocharged T-GDi petrol engine.
On July 14, a South Korean carmaker, Hyundai launched the Tucson facelift in India with introductory price ranges from US$ 29578.14 to US$ 35851.89. However, the launch of the Tucson facelift has been delayed due to the novel coronavirus. Now, the company is expected to unveil its next-gen Tucson in August 2020. In late 2019, the all-new Tucson was previewed at the LA Auto Show. The next-gen Tucson will carry many elements from the Vision Concept T SUV, with the proportions and silhouette also similar to the concept SUV.
Elements such as headlight design, bumper, the front grille, rising beltline, and the flared wheel arches are also carried over from the Vision Concept T. The SUV also gets a rear light bar that connects the tail-lights. The all-new Tucson is expected to be equipped with both petrol and diesel engine. The SUV is expected to be equipped with a four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel engine and with a four-cylinder, 1.6-liter turbocharged T-GDi petrol engine. The 1.6-liter turbo-petrol engine will be available with a hybrid system, with a 1.49 kW lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor.
Moreover, Hyundai is expected to offer a sportier Tucson N-line that will be equipped with a 2.5-liter turbocharged T-GDi petrol engine that delivers 290 hp of power and 422 Nm of peak torque. The next-gen Tucson will use a new platform that is said to have driving dynamics, safety, and strength, as well as increase the Tucson’s dimensions compared to the ongoing model. However, the company has not yet revealed any details about the launch of the new Tucson (India-bound). Apart from this, Hyundai is working on the all-new i20 hatchback, which is expected to be launched in India in the coming future. Moreover, in July 2020 the company launched the Venue iMT in India.
