The updated Korean crossover will debut soon, but for now we had the opportunity to watch car tests on the Nurburgring race track.

Hyundai is testing the prototypes of the new Tucson with might and main, and one of them got into the lens of spies on the Nurburgring race track, and it was even filmed on video.

In the video, the crossover moves at a calm pace, the more surprising is the lack of rear seats and the presence of a safety cage. Perhaps behind the scenes, the testers still probed the limits of the capabilities of the machine.

Recall that the Tucson of the modern generation has been mass-produced not so long ago, since 2015, and in 2018 it survived the update. However, this does not prevent the Korean brand from conducting tests of a completely new generation of the model, which may soon enter the car market. The exterior of the future Tucson is significantly different from the current model: a large radiator grille combined with headlights will be announced in front. In this case, the optics will be “two-story” as on the new Santa Fe and Palisade crossovers.

The styling of the lateral parts is formed by the duo of stampings, the first of which is located on the front wing along the hood connector, the second starts from the front door and enters the rear lights. You can also find sub-stampings at the bottom of the side doors. Judging by the spy photos, the solution to the rear of the car will be rather unusual. A wide stamping for a license plate niche is a haven for triangular lights. It is likely that they will be interconnected by an LED strip.

The technical component of the new Hyundai Tucson is still kept secret. It is expected that the Korean crossover will receive at least 2 new power plants: a 180-horsepower 1.6-liter gasoline turbo engine from the new Sonata and a 2.5-liter Theta III turbo engine with up to 300 hp. A couple of them will be the same 8-speed automatic gearbox.
