The new Hyundai Tucson will be launched on July 14. The car was shown to the public earlier this year at the 2020 Auto Expo. The new Tucson receives BS6 updates, a new transmission for the diesel variants and some visual updates as well. Under the hood, the Tucson will continue to draw power from the 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines from the previous model, now up to BS6 standards, of course. While the petrol mill is mated to a six-speed automatic, the diesel engine gets a new eight-speed automatic transmission. The former is expected to churn out 152 hp while the latter will produce 185 hp. Hyundai will price the new Tucson at a premium over the outgoing model. The car will go up against the Škoda Karoq, Jeep Compass and the Honda CR-V.

Would gape at fast cars. Still does but now has a chance to drive some of them. Hates driving in traffic but makes up for with a spot of off-roading or the occasional track outing. Insta: @motoknight
