When we below at The Drive very first observed the teaser photographs for the new Hyundai Tucson, we figured that this had to be some form of concept auto. It looked way too attention-grabbing, what with the angular mild styles that mix seamlessly into the grille when they are off. But no! The following genuine-existence, for-sale Tucson is seriously going to glance like this.
The future-generation Tucson is an all-new crossover SUV that will be the initial in its class to present the two quick- and long-wheelbase versions. Lightening up the teaser illustrations or photos Hyundai introduced these days gives us our finest glance however at the bold exterior structure, which is a further nice split from all the offensively inoffensive mall-mobiles out there from the Korean marque.
Hyundai phone calls their grille-mounted daytime operating lights “Parametric Hidden Lights,” and their disappearing act is the coolest trick in the new Tucson’s exterior design. The grille alone features jewel-like detailing, some of which conceal the DRLs inside of. When the DRLs are off, the lights blend in seamlessly with the rest of the grille’s styles.
The new Tucson is more substantial and wider than the previous one, with limited overhangs, a extensive hood and angular styling that make it seem somewhat svelte in contrast to quite a few of its bulbous competition in that crossover/SUV house.
The angular layout language does not give up in the back again, both, where you will find nonetheless another interesting-looking lights aspect across the total width of the auto. The additional horizontal traces radiating out from the vertical taillights are really fairly great.
The inside teaser graphic also appears quite handsome, that includes what Hyundai refers to as its “dual-cockpit” structure. There is a very clear separation between the driver’s and passenger’s space, which we hope won’t feel way too claustrophobic in a compact crossover, but will not glance so in the images. The touchscreen and dashboard functions hover in excess of the rest of the dashboard in a visually pleasing way, and it appears to be like like you will find a wide LED screen for the gauge cluster peeking out from powering the steering wheel.
The new Tucson will debut later on this thirty day period on September 15th. Here’s hoping they also validate that 340-horsepower Tucson N.
