Most utility vehicles flaunt a burly appearance to match their strong performances but for the buyers who are looking for a softer crossover with some luxury features and decent performance, there are not many options. So here’s Hyundai Tucson for 2014 and it does what most other compact crossovers were not able to manage in the recent years – it retains its small size and gets little sophisticated! Pretty shorter than most other ‘small SUVs’ and with a lighter kerb weight that adds to its efficiency, the 2014 Hyundai Tucson comes with a range of revisions. It has upgraded engines, more cabin features and subtle external design changes. 
On a length of 4410 mm, Tucson’s wheelbase measures 2640 mm. It is 1660 mm tall and has a width of 1820 mm. This car has a monocoque structure with front and rear suspensions hung from sub-frames. While the front suspension comprises McPherson strut arrangement, the rear has multi-link axle. 
We expect two engine options with Hyundai Tucson 2015 - its 1.6 litre CRDi will be taken from Verna and Elantra. The second engine might be a larger 2.0 litre diesel motor which eventually could also make it to the new Sonata. There will be a 6 speed automatic  transmission or a 5 speed manual. Furthermore, while the base 1.6 litre engine trim will be a front wheel drive, the larger engine version will have optional 4WD. This is the same all wheel drive system as used with the Santa Fe - the vehicle moves using the front wheels for most of the time and the power is transmitted to rear wheels only when a slip is detected at front wheels. A maximum of 50 percent of the power can be transferred to the rear axle. Although it does not have a low range option, there is a differential lock that remains active at slow speed, up to a maximum of 40 km/hour. 
Like most other Hyundai cars, Tucson too is an iteration of Hyundai’s fluidic design principle and sports a curvaceous, flowing design. There are sinewy creases on an aerodynamic silhouette and the overall appearance still looks sleek. In the facelifted variant, the Korean carmaker also revived the exteriors by adding LED daytime running lights on new projector headlamps and with refreshed wheel design. The sharp, wrap around tail-lamps are also underscored with LEDs. 
The cabin looks more attractive now and because this is a Hyundai, it is tad more furbished than most of its rivals. Quality of materials has also improved and this gives it a special feel. The only bummer is that while there is ample legroom, the seats do not have good reclining and fore-aft sliding capabilities. There is 727 litres of cargo space behind the rear seats and with the rear seats folded it turns into 1580 litres. 
Internationally, the new Tucson comes with Hyundai's Blue Link telematics service that can be configured for voice text messaging, point-of-interest web search and to download information concerning traffic and weather. But we are not sure as to how much of these tech rich features will be a part of the model for India. Bluetooth connectivity is standard and so are power windows, electrical adjustment for ORVMs, the airbags and rear parking sensors. Optional attributes for Indian trim will include sunroof, reversing camera and leather upholstery. 
Across the global markets, Tucson has been praised for its build quality and practicality as a city car but it has also seen some criticism against the ride factor. And so the updated 2014 version of this Hyundai SUV comes with adaptive dampers with 2 preset settings - a softer setting for comfortable low-speed ride and a stiff set-up for better high-speed handling. How successful would this be on Indian roads, is yet to be seen but Hyundai may have to customise the suspension further to suit the conditions here. 
Hyundai’s cars feature among the top sellers in India and the Tucson too is expected to take the game further ahead. There is no disclosure about the launch date and price yet but Ecardlr will keep bringing fresh updates on this one. Stay tuned!
