For the first time, journalists managed to capture the new generation of the South Korean compact crossover Hyundai Tucson. The official presentation of the production car is expected next year.

The current version of the Hyundai Tucson crossover was shown at the New York Auto Show last year. More recently, a South Korean company introduced a more powerful version of the model called the Tucson N Line – the car received only “cosmetic” improvements. Well, today we have the first photos from the tests of a completely new generation of compact cars. The test prototype received heavy camouflage.

The car pulls a trailer, which may be a sure sign that the Hyundai team is testing the towing ability of the updated crossover. The foreign editions that published these images claim that under the hood of the prototype seen is the new Theta3 2.5-liter engine, which is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. It is possible that the new generation of the compact crossover will be available with a hybrid powertrain borrowed from the Sonata sedan.

Regarding the appearance of Hyundai Tucson, the vice president of design company said that absolutely everyone will like the new exterior, “people will go crazy from it.”

Well, a very bold statement and we really want to see what the novelty will be like. Now, due to the incredible amount of camouflage film and patch panels, it is difficult to say something about the exterior of the car. This is our first look at the model, we see a very similar to the current Tucson profile. There are obvious changes in the front – lights and daytime running lights should be noted separately.

Our sources believe that a completely new generation of compact crossover will be presented next year as a model of 2021.
