I think it shows a very positive sign, it shows resilience of Indian auto industry,” Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) Director (Sales, Marketing and Service) Tarun Garg told PTI in an interview.
Commenting on the new Tucson, Garg said the model has done very well in the international markets with cumulative sales of over 65 lakh units and it was time that it received same kind of appreciation in India as well.
“It is the right time to launch the new Tucson in the country. There are over five lakh Creta buyers in the country who are looking to upgrade to a premium SUV, this is where Tucson comes in the picture,” he said.
The new Tucson comes with BSVI compliant petrol and diesel powertrains.
The SUV now comes with 2-litre diesel engine mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. The 2-litre petrol trims feature six-speed automatic transmission.
