Hyundai has announced that it will introduce the all-new model of its flagship SUV to India in the form of the 2022 Hyundai Tucson. In a statement issued by Hyundai, the all-new Hyundai Tucson SUV will arrive in the second half of 2022. This is the fourth generation of Hyundai Tucson that Come to India.
Unsoo Kim, Managing Director and CEO of Hyundai Motor India Limited, said, “…Hyundai is poised to delight and excite customers by introducing our best-selling All-New Tucson. It has captured (it) the hearts and minds of customers around the world with more than than 7 million units globally since its launch in 2004.”
The 2021 Hyundai Tucson SUV, the world-spec model, has become the latest car entrant to receive a 5-star safety rating from Euro NCAP. We have yet to see how similar Tucson would be to what is being sold in India compared to what is being sold internationally. However, in the crash test conducted, the SUV scored an 86 percent occupational safety score for adults while the score in the child safety tests scored an 87 percent higher. The top rating checks the Tucson’s list of safety features which include forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane keep assist, driver attention alert, and more.
The Hyundai Tucson scored 12.4 out of 16 available in the front crash test, while its side impact score was 15.4. The SUV received a rear impact score of 3.3 out of 4 and a rescue and exit rating of 2 points. Overall, the Tucson scored 33.1 out of 38 in terms of adult passenger protection.
In terms of child occupation protection, Tucson 2021 scored 42.9 points out of a total of 49 points available in this category. The unit of testing was evaluated for safety in children aged 6 and 10 years.
However, when it comes to poor road user testing, the 2021 Tucson achieved a relatively low score of 66 percent. For the AEB Pedestrian, the SUV scored just over half and scored 5.1 out of a 9-point total. For the AEB Cyclist, the rating was slightly better at 7.2 points out of the 9 available.
The fourth generation Tucson should be launched in India fairly soon as the SUV has already been tested in the country.
