The Hyundai Tucson is again foraying into the Indian market, it had made its debut sometime back, but owing to not so good market response and other issues, it was discontinued in India. But eventually, Hyundai made effective changes both in its appearance, features, engine and packaged it well and reintroduced it into the crowded SUV segment in India. It will be released in India in the end of 2016. The vehicle brought back due to popular demand and auto enthusiasts already being aware of this vehicle, once launched again, have to wait and see the market response this time.
