Hyundai Tucson will compete with the likes of Mahindra XUV500 and the upcoming Jeep Compass in India.

The 2016 Hyundai Tucson which made its Indian debut at the Auto Expo 2016 is scheduled to be launched on the 14th November 2016.

The first generation of the SUV didn’t quite manage to create an impact in India but the third gen model with modern design and rich equipment list is hoping to have a better chance with the SUV loving Indian customers.
