All-New 2021 Hyundai Tucson Coming Soon In Nepal.
2021 Hyundai Tucson Overview
Lakshmi Intercontinental Pvt. Ltd. will soon bring Hyundai’s fourth-generation Tucson to Nepal, currently sold in the international market.
The company has released a Teaser video of Tucson and mentioned that it would come to Nepal soon.
According to company sources, sales of the new Tucson will start from the end of July or the first week of August 2021.
Before we dive into more details, here are the major highlights of the 2021 Hyundai Tucson:
- Long-wheelbase versions of the fourth-generation Tucson are also available.
- In addition, there are options for gasoline, diesel, and hybrid powertrains.
- Touch panels have mostly supplanted conventional controllers.
The new generation Tucson is full of entirely different designs and features compared to the old ones.
The 2021 Hyundai Tucson includes Hyundai’s Sensuous Sportiness design language, as well as flourishes of what the firm calls “parametric dynamics,” which give the Tucson’s exterior a jewel-like surface.
Providing the new gen with a sense of adventure, the face of the Tucson is a parametric grille with half-mirror LED daytime running lights that are only visible when they are turned on.
The DRLs seems to be an extension of the grille surface when the Tucson isn’t operating, with the projector headlights situated lower in the front bumper.
The tight skinning and short overhangs, prominent character lines, flared wheel arches, and a chrome strip that extends from the base of the ORVMs back to the C-pillar stand out along the sides.
In addition to 17- and 18-inch wheels, the company will sell 19-inch wheels in overseas markets.
The T-shaped taillights, connected by an LED light bar that spans the Tucson’s width, also include half-hidden triangular shapes, which is seen when lighted.
The rear wiper is carefully hidden beneath the spoiler, and the bumper features a diamond-pattern finish, a fake diffuser, and twin chrome exhaust points.
Overall, the new Tucson ditches the current-generation model’s rounded, boxy exterior favouring a more aggressive, in-your-face style.
The inside of the 2021 Hyundai Tucson is essentially identical to that of the third-generation SUV.
However, the new Tucson’s interior takes a minimalist approach, replacing most tactile controls with touch displays.
Featuring a round dashboard, the SUV features a 10.25-inch digital driver display, a 10.25-inch infotainment system, automatic climate control, a seat ventilation button on the console, buttons for other functions, and a replacement button for traditional gear levers.
It has features like a wireless charger, sunroof, air purifier, 64 colour ambient light, 360-degree camera, driver seat memory, rear AC vent, the digital key that can be operated from a smartphone, Hyundai Vulink connectivity, Bose sound system.
There are a few physical buttons for seat ventilation and other functions on the centre console, but there is no standard gear lever – switches have replaced it.
While the model for overseas markets was revealed in a 5-seat configuration.
The very successful second-generation Hyundai Creta will soon be joined by a seven-seater that will be closer in size to the current-generation Tucson.
Hyundai has decided to make the fourth-generation Tucson more significant and premium to make way for this new vehicle, which will be positioned as a substitute for Santa Fe.
Tucson is available in the international market with 1.6-litre turbo petrol, 2.5-litre petrol and 2.0-litre turbo diesel engines.
Yet, there no information about which engine will be arriving in Nepal.
The Hyundai Tucson has expanded in size for 2021, but the more important news is that it will be offered in a long-wheelbase configuration for the first time.
The new Tucson’s short-wheelbase version is only 10 mm longer, 15 mm wider, and has a 10 mm longer wheelbase than the current model.
On the other hand, the Tucson long-wheelbase model is 150 mm longer and has an 85 mm longer wheelbase, allowing Hyundai to carve out an ample internal space.
In Nepal, the fourth-generation Hyundai Tucson will most likely fight against the Jeep Compass, Tata Harrier, and Volkswagen Tiguan.
Is It Worth Buying 2021 Hyundai Tucson?
The Hyundai Tucson for 2021 is a good choice. Edmunds gave it an 8 out of 10 ratings, so it’s certainly not a wrong choice. It also came in fourth place on their list of the top small SUVs. It is ranked higher than the Subaru Forester, which is placed fifth.
It provides exceptional value for money and, because to its fuel efficiency, it also saves money.
Is it better to buy a Tucson or a Sportage?
Even though Tucson appears to be a fresher, more exciting vehicle, the Sportage is somewhat less expensive than the Tucson.
In addition, both cars have almost comparable features and specs, giving the Sportage a slightly better value for money.
