The new Hyundai Tucson is a 5-seater car and has two rows, it is a very comfortable car for day-to-day use, and works effortlessly, but it is not something that would give you maximum speed and thrill, it is rather very calm and family-friendly. It has a nice performance when in regards to daily commuting, but it is not a car that you would like to take on a ride on Sundays when you want to feel the thrill that your busy weekdays do not provide you. 


This new Hyundai Tucson 2021 is providing a wide array of option when it comes to the engine because it not only releasing one model there is going to be multiple variants of this amazing automobile witch different efficiency. The six different variants that are available are Tucson SE, Tucson Value, Tucson SEL, Tucson Sport, Tucson Limited and Tucson Ultimate. And the different variety of powertrains available are 2.5-litre four-cylinder NA petrol engine that churns out 190 horsepower along with a torque of 260 Nm, a 1.6-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine that effectively churns out 180 horsepower along with a torque of 264 Nm.

The hybrid versions will provide a 1.6-litre TGDI turbo petrol engine that will efficiently churn out 230 horsepower along with a torque of 350 Nm and this will also be paired with an electric motor for added efficiency. Both the 2.5 litres and 1.6-litre petrol engine will be available with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. And apart from the petrol engines, some places will also offer a 2.0-litre turbo diesel engine which is capable of churning out 186 horsepower along with a torque of 417 Nm and it will have a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. But it is necessary to keep in mind that it will not be available in all states. 

As for the dimensions of the new Hyundai Tucson 2021, it is comparatively quite spacious when compared to the existing gen model. This new model will be significantly longer and broader, as it will have an 85 mm longer wheelbase, which in return offers more space within the car. On a whole, the car has grown 10 mm in length and 15 mm in width when compared to the current-gen available.   

Exterior Design of The New Hyundai Tucson 2021

As the Tucson 2021 is being built in Korea it will highlight sumptuous sportiness in the car’s exterior features and along with that, the car will also display parametric dynamic as Hyundai themselves explains it. Because in the front the car is designed with parametric grille, along with LED headlights which are cleanly situated inside the jewel-shaped grilles. The surprise twist to the lights is that it will only be visible when turned on, otherwise, it will not be visible especially during the daytime. It is just to add a little bit of fun to the car and makes the customer and also the people seeing the car for the first time curious. 

In the rear end of the car to the gun, the invisibility factor is consistent but the only thing different from the headlights is that the taillight LED is cleanly situated within a triangular-shaped grille. Which creates a nice contrast in the car and makes it look a little quirky. Another thigh that is quite unusual in this car that the Hyundai logo is situated in the rear windshield of the car, although it is not a common Hyundai technique, it does help the car get a clean and chic look. And to top it off, the rear wiper is also perfectly hidden under the rear spoiler to maintain the clean look of the car. 

Interior Design and The Advanced Technologies in The New Hyundai Tucson

The interior of the new Hyundai Tucson 2021 is fully revamped, and the designer has ditched most of the physical control panel for digital control panels and we couldn’t love it more. The touch control looks so chic and less cultured, it is very aesthetically pleasing and gives it a minimalistic look. Along with that customers also get a ginormous 10.25 inches touch screen infotainment system which comes with Apple CarPlay as well as Android Auto.

The new Hyundai Tucson 2021 does not let anyone down. Even the automatic climate control that is installed in this model can be operated with a touch panel which is situated right below the infotainment screen. And that’s not the end, they have also removed the gear lever of the car and replaced it with buttons. This specific instalment is bound to win hearts as it will make changing gears, oh so easy!

Now we will talk about more tech components of the car and what all it involves. As said earlier, the new Hyundai Tucson 2021 is not here to disappoint and hence it is instilled with great technologies like a wireless smartphone charger, an air purifier which is, in the times of Covid-19 so important and necessary, a 360-degree camera, memory function for the driver’s seat for the optimal driving experience, it also has 64 different colour ambient mood light along with a panoramic sunroof which will make the mood light look so much cooler and aesthetic during the night. 

If you often get annoyed by the front passenger because they lean their seat back a little too much and takes up a lot of space, then don’t worry because in this new Hyundai Tucson 2021 you will give a powered controller for the people sitting in the rear seat to adjust the front passenger’s seat. Now no more annoying people, unless you are one of them, then you have to watch out.  Along with that, the passenger in the back will get rear AC vents for more cooling and comfort. 

Along with that you don’t necessarily have to open your car with a physical key as it allows a digital key, and what we mean by a digital key is that the owner can unlock the car with his or her smartphone, now that’s very high tech. And it has more, it feels like this car cannot stop adding more features, because it also has a Bose premium audio system, a dashcam, voice recognition and even BlueLink connected car tech. The new Hyundai Tucson is definitely setting a very high standard and gives strong competition to its rival and that to at an affordable rate.  


One of the top reasons why this Tucson 2021 is more likable by customers because Hyundai covers Tucson with two kinds of warranty and that is a 10 year per 100,000-mile engine warranty and a 5 year per 60,000-mile limited warranty.  

Along with so many features and technologies, Tucson 2021 has more to offer and this time in the safety category. And what it contains are a SmartSense safety feature suite which comes along with a highway driving assist, a forward collision avoidance assists which comes along with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist and a lane following assist, and a blind spot view monitor. And that is not all it also has extra features like high beam assist, adaptive cursor control, a surrounded view mirror and many more. 

Should You Buy The New Hyundai Tucson?

Although we should keep in mind that this model is yet to be released in India and there is quite some time for that to happen. But when it will finally be available in India it is sure to be a great sensation. First, because it provides so many variants in the same model along with multiple high-tech features and a really clean design. This new Hyundai Tucson 2021 is a real steal. It will also be a very strong contender because it provides so many feature at a very reasonable price which is starting from around Rs. 22.30 lakh to 27.03 Lakh, although prices may vary from state to state.
