Hyundai Teases New Tucson Compact SUV in Dramatic Fashion
Hyundai has released dramatically dark teaser images for the all-new Tucson compact utility, set to enter the spotlight on September 15th, via a livestreamed press conference.
Hyundai's images show a distinctive front end treatment for the new Tucson, including the latest evolution of Hyundai’s signature headlamp architecture called ‘Parametric Hidden Lights'. A rear-angle image shows an arched roofline and thin full-width tail lamps. Overall, the new Tucson’s body is bigger and wider than previous generation models, offering a long hood and short overhangs on a stretched wheelbase that give it a slinky coupé-like character. Tucson will also be the first SUV in its class to be available in both short and long wheelbases, depending on the region, to meet diverse market needs.
As described by Hyundai, the evolution of Tucson’s interior layout led to a lower instrument display and removal of the gauge cluster housing for a decluttered surface. Layered, sensuous forms reinforce the feeling of openness. The broad ridge of the dashboard blends seamlessly with the doors, wrapping around front occupants like a deep gorge. The vertically oriented, fully integrated center fascia descends to the console like a mighty waterfall. Twin silver garnish lines streaming from the center fascia to the rear doors harmonize neatly layered premium surface materials in complementary neutral tones.
