All-new Hyundai Tucson launched in NepalPosted On: September 7, 2021 By : Shuva Raj Khatri
Laxmi Intercontinental Pvt. Ltd, the sole authorized distributor for Hyundai cars in Nepal, officially launched the all-new Hyundai Tucson on 6 September.
The SUV comes in four variants: the GL 2WD (petrol), GLS 2WD (petrol), SLX 2WD (petrol), and GLX 4WD (diesel). The price of the Hyundai Tucson in Nepal starts from Rs 89.99 lakh.
The Hyundai Tucson comes with a dark chrome radiator grille on the front that features parametric hidden lights on both sides. The SUV stands on 18” alloy wheels, and it uses LED daytime running lights as headlamps and LED combination lamps on the rear.
The SUV comes with a completely new interior design that looks more futuristic than its predecessor’s. Among the minimalist design, cues are a wrap-around structure and a 10.3-inch infotainment screen embedded at the centre of the dashboard.
The new Hyundai Tucson’s variants feature a range of petrol and diesel engines. The top-end variant, with a 150hp 1.6-litre petrol engine, comes with a 7-speed shift-by-wire dual-clutch transmission as standard and is available as a front-wheel-drive only. The diesel engine variant, however, is offered with four-wheel drive as an option.
The Smartstream G2.0 (petrol) engine generates a maximum power of 156 ps and a maximum torque of 19.6 kgm.
The Smartstream D2.0 (diesel) engine, with a displacement of 1998 cc, produces a peak power of 186 ps and a peak torque of 42.5 kgm.
The SUV includes convenience features like ventilated and heated front seats, mood lamps, a walk-in device, a full auto air conditioning system, an integrated memory system, and an automatic power tailgate.
Furthermore, the all-new Hyundai Tucson’s safety features include forward collision avoidance assist, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision avoidance assist, cruise control, electric park brake with auto-hold, and forward/reverse parking distance warning.
In terms of practicality, the new Hyundai Tucson’s boot features three-way split-folding rear seats as standard. Compared to the previous SUV, its boot space has grown by between 33 and 107 litres (depending on the model you choose). The petrol-powered variants have 620 litres of space, and the diesel models get 598 litres.
The new Hyundai Tucson variants are offered in these colours: White Cream, Amazon Gray, Crimson Red, Shimmering Silver, Deep Sea, Silky Bronze, Titan Grey, and Phantom Black.
