Exterior

The top features a panoramic sunroof that extends from front to back. LED tail lights, rear spoiler and chrome exhaust tips make you want to look twice.

The car runs on 17-inch alloy wheels with tubeless tyres. Take a look for yourself.

Interior

Like the exterior, the interior is also extremely appealing. It features cutting edge technologies to give the vehicle a futuristic look.

The inside features a CD/DVD player with infotainment system along with the LED touchscreen.

You have remote control access to audio system, push start button, power steering, and remote trunk and windows openers and may more features.

The photos surely give a sporty look.

Engine

The 62-liter capacity engine is spacious enough for large trips without refuelling stops. Tucson has a 6-gear box which operates on automatic transmission.

It features a 2.0 liter 183bhp e-VGT engine that generates maximum power at 4000 rotations per minute. The car comes in both diesel and petrol variants.

The engine has a CRDI fuel supply system with four cylinder and supports turbo charging.

Other Features

There is no doubt that the vehicle is extremely pleasing on the eye. Here are some of its additional features to entice you even further.

Price & Availability

The rumored price of Tucson is said to be around Rs 2.8 million. When you consider the specifications, the price does not seem unreasonable.

    And then there is Suzuki Vitara for around Rs 3.3 million…

    • Usman Arif

      This is far superior from Vitara.

      • MaisaM Musaddiq

        thats what i meant

        • Aftab

          what about the price lol 7 million and suzuki 3.3

  • kash

    This is a 5 seater whereas Honda BRV is a 7 seater. In UK its prices start from £19,705. This suv in Pakistan will be over 30 lacs for basic model

  • observer

    absolute pathetic.Even if the new entrants launch new cars, it is still not in the “affordable” range. I am confused whether it is “Tucson” or “Tuscon”?

    • Muhammad Kamran

      Bro. first check international price. Its reasonable. Have you ever driven Tuscon. if not then Pathetic does not suit here.

      • Muhammad Yasir

        what he means is … where are the BUDGET cars ?!

        who’s going to battle mehran !?

        we were expecting cars in the SUB 1 million category … THAT’S the Budget section of the cars !

        we dont HAVE a budget section in the country as of yet !

        the mehran costs 7-7.5 mil , that is LOWER MID RANGE not BUDGET category !

        Pakstan NEEDS budget category passenger vehicles

        not these extravagant offerings, which most of the local populace can’t afford anyways !

        • Muhammad Kamran

          Yar intentional companies Pakistan mi Mehran competition k lie to nai arhi na. Mehran gari thori hai, jo isy agy kar lethy hai. let them come first. They have budget car like Kia picanto and Hyndai i10. but initially they cannot afford to spend money on these low end cars. Please be Patient.

          • Muhammad Yasir

            hmm … alright

            but they will need to add to their budget offerings if they truly want to succeed

          • Abdul Hayee

            Well the plz refer to the Kia Kwid ..
            It would cost around 4.5 – 5 lakh..

      • Observer

        Pathetic was used for the condition of the market. Not for the vehicle introduced. People like me expect a decent car at a reasonable price. I was only talking about the affordability of the vehicles these new entrants are introducing.

        • Muhammad Kamran

          Currently SUIV is getting more attention. and I hope in Pakistan it will gain market due to bad road conditions. and Its good if you can get new SUV under 3M. atleast its more better than honda civic. For decent car you can get Kia sedan.

      • Adnan

        for heaven’s sake it is tucson and not tuscon. If you have driven as you claim, you wouldn’t have misspelled it ?

        • Muhammad Kamran

          Hahah. I had this on dude. and for drive perspective, its normal. but atleast in low price its good to compare with other SUV. It does not matter spell mistake is not big deal.

  • Muhammad Kamran

    2.8M? it start from 73000 AED to 100000AED. 2.8M is reasonable price. It ll replace lot of sedan.

    • Muhammad Yasir

      umm … the new Honda City costs 2.5 M, i don’t see people choosing Tuscon over City

      • Muhammad Kamran

        City in 2.5M?????????????????? it must be civic. I got accord 2016 fully loaded in this range :)

        • Muhammad Yasir

          yeah civic …

          damn typo

  • Fahad J

    its Diesel engine man …what the

    • Muhammad Yasir

      yeah, that means more pollution … i guess

  • Anonymous

    62 liter, nice..:D

  • Atif

    It would be a gasoline engine not diesel!

  • zohaib

    bhai loog aap kyo tension lay rahy ho, wo janai jnho nay khridni hai. wasey be mashoor mahwara hai “jihan day ghar dany, una day kamly ve sauanay”

  • It should be compared to vezel not BR-V

  • Muhammad Yasir

    what about affordable hatchbacks and Sedans ?!

    when will THOSE appear ?!

    come on … don’t make a joke of the Auto Policy

    it was supposed to bring AFFORDABLE cars !

    not these luxurious vehicles, … the filthy rich ALREADY have alot of ‘toys’ to play with !

    • Observer

      Nailed it.

  • hatib has returned

    i think writer has written wrong they are launching 2 litter petrol instead of diesel

    • Syed Zarar

      There are two variants, one is petrol and the other one is diesel.

  • Muhammad Shahrukh Khan

    “62-liter capacity engine”.
    Come on ProPakistani, you’re better than this.

  • CaR M0nitor

    let it come and stack against vitara which already thaka-hara in our market and then comes the new fortuner, let it come, we will see what it offers in pakistan

  • Syed Shadab Hussain

    wow

    • Ammad Aslam

      O Yeah?

  • Hamood-ur- Rehman

    Average life of Hyundai Cars are less and cost of maintaining them after 5years comparing the renowned Japanese cars, like Toyota, Honda, Suzuki, would be reasonably high.

    • Ammad Aslam

      Alright!

  • Muhammad Ahtisham Saqib

    I drive this car for 2 year. Its best in mid size SUV range in driving and luxury. Its price should not high than 3 million. I am not sure when they are planning to launch TUCSON. Expecting it will come soon.

  • Saeed Akram

    “The 62-liter capacity engine is spacious..”
    Are you serious bro?

    • Ammad Aslam

      No, they are just kidding. ProPakistani is a portal build for exchanging jokes. You can also share a joke here if you want! We all will give you a 2 minutes standing applause.

  • Irfan Ahmad Sial

    As per price changes the TUCSON will be available above 3.0M
