Back in 2005, the introduction of the first-generation Hyundai Tucson in the Indian market made for a pleasant surprise. However, it was a little ahead of its time, as Indians were yet to warm up to premium SUVs. Nonetheless, it met with a reasonable amount of success, but it wasn’t enough to call for the second-generation Tucson to India, thus leaving a big void in India’s tryst with the Tucson. Then the Creta came along, and the rest is history. Preferences shifted from C/D-segment sedans to compact, so-called premium SUVs, and the Creta along with a few other models reaped the maximum benefits of the transition. Prompted by its massive success, Hyundai India has brought in the third-generation of the Tucson, which will be straddling the Creta and the Santa Fe. We find out how good it is.
