The Korean company announced the upcoming modernization of the Hyundai Tucson, which will receive a significantly updated design. Hints of a new appearance could be seen during testing of test mules, which, however, were hidden under tight camouflage.

As Hyundai vice president of exterior design Sang Yup Lee noted, the next Tucson will have a strong resemblance to new products, including Sonata, Venue and Palisade. A cascade grille will appear in the front part, LED headlights are located a little lower, visually they are combined into a single element with side air intakes. The wings have become more athletic. Reworked rear bumper equipped with a larger diffuser. Installed new LED taillights.

Trim will also be noticeably redesigned. So, hard plastic disappears, to which there were too many complaints. Better materials will be used, and leather trim in various colors, complemented by contrasting stitching, will also be offered. A 12.3-inch infotainment display is expected. It will be placed in a tablet orientation. You can unlock Tucson and start the crossover engine using a smartphone. There is wireless charging for the phone.

Driver assistance systems will include adaptive cruise control, a frontal collision warning system, a lane holding system, an emergency braking system when reversing, and blind spot monitoring. Video will be transmitted to the digital dashboard. Remote parking is also available.

The 1.6-liter CRDi turbodiesel, which will switch from the current version, the 1.6-liter turbocharged T-GDI, as well as the 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine and the 2.5-liter four-cylinder GDI, will be included in the list of engines.
