The press service of the South Korean brand has published a teaser for the updated Hyundai Tucson crossover. Shown is a heavily modified exterior, as well as the high-tech interior of the new 2021 model year. The presentation of the car will take place in a few days.

The new generation of Hyundai Tucson compact crossover will debut September 15 at 12:30 GMT. Ahead of the launch, the automaker is releasing images showing the exterior of the new crossover, and the images indicate that the model is undergoing major design changes.

The new Tucson has a charming “face” thanks to a false radiator grille with many trapezoidal elements, while those outside are actually illuminated, creating daytime running lights. Spy shots tell us that the holes in the corners of the bezel are where the headlights are.

There is a chrome trim on the sides that follows the roofline and the shape of the C-pillar. The 19-inch wheels have a complex asymmetrical design with spokes and short sections around the rim.

The rear lights are integrated into the red LED that runs across the entire width of the rear of the car. The designers decided to hide the rear window wiper to create a cleaner design for this part of the car.

Depending on the country in which the 2021 model year compact crossover will be sold, Hyundai will offer the Tucson in one of two wheelbase lengths. The longer version will be available in China, Korea and the United States. The shorter one is for Europe and the Middle East.

Hyundai is also showcasing the high-tech interior of the new Tucson. Although these shots look more like rendering rather than actual photographs. The instrument cluster is now a digital display, and there is a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen in the tilting center console.

Hyundai’s teaser does not detail any changes to the new Tucson’s powertrain lineup.

Not so long ago, AutoTimesNews wrote that the Hyundai electric crossover was noticed in the parking lot. Photospies were able to look into the interior of the cross under the name Ioniq 5, which will be the debut model of Hyundai’s new electric sub-brand.
