Hyundai Tucson Launch Delayed Till November

One of the most awaited car launch of the festive season was the Hyundai Tucson however, the launch is now postponed to November 2016 (It was supposed to happen on 24th October). The Korean manufacturer hasn’t talked about the reason for this delay but, the overwhelming response for the latest Elantra could be that reason.


It makes sense to let the excitement of new Elantra cool down a bit before launching a new product in the similar price bracket. That said, select dealerships had already started taking the bookings for the Tucson for Rs 25,000 token deposit.

The new Tucson looks very futuristic with its Fluidic 2.0 design language. Some outstanding highlights include hexagonal front grille, elongated headlamps, and coupe-like silhouette. From the rear, the car seems to be inspired from its elder sibling- the Santa Fe.
