Much to the relief of people living in the Delhi-NCR area, the monsoons have finally made their presence felt here, and how! Beginning with a flurry of very strong showers a few weeks ago, the rains this time have been a bit erratic till now. And strangely, the days when rainfall would literally take place for days on end seem to have passed. What we’re getting this year instead is sporadic rainfall, but the intensity is absolutely massive in each rainfall we get. And as one would expect, that means if it rains during office hours, our infrastructure absolutely crumbles and there is waterlogging and traffic jams everywhere.
However, with the Tucson, that hasn’t been much of a problem for me. With its high ground clearance, big tyres and ample water wading capabilities, I can easily drive the Tucson through waterlogged streets without worrying. But, the rain does amplify an annoyance with the Tucson, which are its halogen high beam lamps. Even in dry conditions, they’re a candle compared to the super-bright LED low beams, and the rain, with its light refraction properties only makes visibility even poorer. In my opinion, I can’t wait for the Tucson facelift to reach India, and sincerely hope that it comes with full-LED headlight for some stunning visibility, no matter the weather conditions.
