Pictures, pricing, details || Third 'less expensive' variant of the Hyundai Tucson is coming to Pakistan!

The new base trim of the Tucson seems closely related to the Kia Sportage Alpha, with the elimination of a few advanced features.

The 3rd Generation Hyundai Tucson officially launched in Pakistan two months ago. As soon as the car was introduced, it received an overwhelming response from the public. When the car went on sale, a high influx of car bookings was recorded; the automaker could not manage the rising demand.

Now it seems that Hyundai Nishat is set on taking the Pakistani automotive market by storm once again. After the colossal impact received last time, the automaker started to work towards launching a new base variant of the Hyundai Tucson in Pakistan.

The Look of the New Tucson

The new base trim of the Tucson seems closely related to the Kia Sportage Alpha, with the elimination of a few advanced features.

Based on this speculation, the new Tucson would likely have the same 2.0 liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder petrol engine making 155 horsepower, 196 Newton/Meters of torque, mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The variant will also be Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) only.

Features of the New Tucson

The new Tucson variant will be a cheaper, stripped-down version of the original Tucson. However, all basic features (such as dual-zone climate vents, USB and AUX ports, steering multimedia controls, driver-passenger airbags, Hill-start assist, downhill brake control, vehicle stability, and traction control) will still be intact.

Compared to the original, the new variant will flaunt:

  • A simple roof instead of a Panoramic Sunroof
  • 17″ alloy wheels instead of 18″
  • Fancy headlights replaced by more basic halogen projectors
  • Black mesh front grille instead of a chrome one
  • LED’s rear lights replaced by basic halogens
  • No Parking Sensors
  • electronic parking brake replaced by a manual handbrake
  • A smaller, more basic infotainment unit

Possible Price of the New Tucson

The official price for the new variant has not been revealed yet. However, speculations state that the new variant will cost Rs. 4.6 million. The new Tucson price is less than the cost of the GLS Sport and the Ultimate trim levels.

It should be noted that the Sportage Alpha, Hyundai Tucson’s direct competitor and twin, is priced at Rs. 4.4 million – comparatively cheaper.

All factors considered, Hyundai Nishat can still create a promising impression with its Tucson as the public is extremely excited about the car. Only time will tell whether the automaker can manage the massive demand for the vehicle or not.
