Was first launched in 2005
Hyundai Tucson has been present in the Indian market for a long time. Its first model to market here was launched in 2005. This was followed by the second generation Tushaw in 2009 and then updated in 2016 with the third generation model. But perhaps due to its placement in the premium SUV segment, it is nowhere near as successful as the newly launched Creta and Venue. But Hyundai is now looking at increasing the sales numbers for this car, despite the fact that it is finding it difficult to gain momentum in the premium SUV segment.
