The 2019 Hyundai Tucson facelift has been showcased at the New York International Auto Show. The facelift crossover will launch in India by the end of this year. Refreshed Tucson gets updated design and new tech on board.
Hyundai Motors launched the Tucson initially back in 2007. Hyundai used to retail the Terracan SUV alongside the Tucson. Both the products failed miserably as neither was the market ready for such premium products nor was Hyundai considered premium enough to sell such brands here. Learning from its mistakes, for a long time, Hyundai didn’t introduce an SUV in the Indian market. Now the Tucson has returned and at the ongoing New York International Auto Show, the 2019 Hyundai Tucson facelift has been revealed. The updated crossover features sharper design elements and new high tech features onboard. Want to know more about the 2019 Hyundai Tucson, read along.
