Hyundai is testing a prototype of the updated crossover Tucson 2021January 15, 2020
The South Korean new 2021 model year was seen on a series of road trials. The car is covered with a rather “heavy” camouflage. According to rumors, the novelty will debut later this year.
Foreign publications published the so-called “spy” photos from the tests of the updated Hyundai Tucson crossover. The new model year 2021 is covered with a fairly dense layer of camouflage film, as well as special false panels, which are designed to distort the original body shape. From the abundance of camouflage, we can conclude that the car is going through a series of early tests.
It is worth noting that we have already seen test samples of the next-generation Tucson crossover several times. Moreover, judging by those pictures, the prototypes had much less camouflage than now.
Despite the great desire of the South Korean car manufacturer’s engineers to hide the appearance of their popular car from us in every possible way, we already know that the new Tucson will have a very attractive form in terms of design. But what exactly this means is still unclear. The prototype crossover seen this time had a lot of camouflage in front, so we can assume that we can expect the appearance of a new “face”.
It is expected that the Tucson 2021 will receive a 2.5-liter Hyundai Theta3 engine, which will be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile, the updated 1.6-liter engine and, possibly, a diesel unit should be available in the markets of Europe and Asia. The machine will receive either front-wheel drive or all four at once.
There is no official date for the presentation of the updated Hyundai Tucson, but it is rumored that the 2021 model year crossover will debut at the end of this year. The start of sales can be expected in the second half of 2021.
