2016 Hyundai Tucson made India debut at the 2016 Auto Expo earlier this year. At the time, Hyundai India confirmed that the new Tucson will be launched in India later this year. Today, the South Korean brand delivered on their promise.
Tucson is not an unheard name in the Indian auto industry. Hyundai Tucson was on sale a couple of years ago in India. But was discontinued due to low sales. The sales were low because the Tucson came in with a high price tag, thanks to low localization levels.
This time around, Hyundai India has priced the new Tucson more aggressively. This has been possible because the new generation Tucson is now offered as CKD (last time around it was launched as a CBU).
