With rivals like the VW Tiguan and Skoda Karoq, what is formidable about the new Tucson is the refinement it gets with BS6 upgrade that makes its drive quality more pleasurable and effortless without a noisy engine. This refinement also gives it a higher power output as compared to that of the Karoq. The 4WD system offers good control of the car compared to its SUV-sized body. The steering is very light and nimble, giving it good maneuvering ability around the city, wading through potholes and puddles without breaking a sweat. The upgraded gearbox of the new Tucson makes the power delivery from the engine very linear and consistent.
Overall, the third generation Tucson stands out as a comfort cruiser that offers an upgraded engine that is economical and efficient in terms of drivability. In particular, the diesel variant offers the best of both worlds in terms of power and mileage minus the hassle of a regular unrefined diesel engine. Expert opinion states that the 4WD diesel option is the best as it offers a great price with equally sound refinement because of the skyrocketing cost of petrol. Moreover, its advantages over its rival are the number of engine options and variety of trims that are on offer along with an attractive price point, which makes it ideal if you are looking for an SUV with the best safety and range of options for particular needs. Its modern design and futuristic features make it suitable for long-range drives and is easy to commute in. The design language is not too bland or extravagant but is a balanced mix of sensible and elegant. Adaptive guidelines for parking assist, cruise control, automated vipers, electrically powered steering wheel, traction control technology with ABS and ESC promises you safety. At the same time, an upgraded infotainment system, 8 infinity speakers, remote access, electrically adjustable seating, cooled glove box gives you a feeling of unparalleled convenience at your fingertips. Also, its tried and tested performance as a well-performing cruiser over the years inspires confidence in the buyer regardless of the car having to fit a family or suitable for solo drives.
