International markets get the Tucson with two engine options – a 114bhp 1.7-litre powerplant and a 182bhp 2.0-litre powerplant. We may be getting the latter and an automatic version will also be making its way to the showrooms, given the stupendous response that the Creta Automatic has received.
Since Hyundai won’t wish the Tucson to chew into Creta’s supercharged sales or the Santa Fe’s premium positioning, they will be placing it somewhere in the Rs. 18-25 lakh range. In that segment it will be battling with the Nissan X-Trail, the Skoda Yeti and the Honda CR-V.
