The latest incarnation has brought these two, well in line with the new breed of Hyundai cars bearing the brand’s latest design philosophy called ‘Sensuous Sportiness’. According to Hyundai, all of its future designs including sedans & SUVs will be embodied by this design theme. Defined by the harmony between four of the fundamental elements- proportion, architecture, styling and technology, its aim is to bring instinctive beauty and create emotional value and desirability in Hyundai vehicles.

It is either powered by IVT (Intelligent Variable Transmission) as well as 6-speed dual clutch automatic. The all new Tucson too, will feature a hybrid setup for the first time along with a 2.5 liter petrol engine with an 8-speed automatic gearbox.

Pakistan auto market exploit customers by introducing older versions with poor and inferior features. Local assemblers make profits by corrupt approach. We are a poor consumer country, people get exploited because of limited choice and exaggerated taxes further high level corrupt deals complete the process.
A strong consumer community need to unite to make voice against such exploitation. Unfortunately it has not yet happened. All such older versions must be repelled and need boycott.

All local assembled cars are normally the “outdated” version even if compared to what is sold in our neighborhood. It is evident from the shapes and quality offered by all manufacturers for years on……and getting premiums on their vehicles!

People must vote with their money and not buy obsolete vehicles.
