    All-New Hyundai Tucson From Every Angle

    All-New Hyundai Tucson From Every Angle
    Thekoreancarblog
    by Jose Antonio López
    Sep 15, 2020






    The Tucson also receives an optional HTRAC all wheel drive system with terrain modes. While this system doesn’t make the Tucson a true off-road vehicle, it does increase the capability of the compact crossover compared to its predecessor. Hyundai also provides electronically controlled suspension for the new Tucson that reduce body roll and pitch, and allow for a Sport mode that shows more noticeable difference between Normal and Sport modes than outgoing models.

    Hyundai has also announced that the next generation Tucson will be available in two different wheelbases depending on what individual markets dictate.

    Pricing is yet to be announced, but we do know that while the new Tucson will be available as a 2021 model in Korea, it will be coming to the US as a 2022 model year car sometime in the first half of 2021, and we hope that the US version retains all the goodies we’ve seen at its unveiling today.
    Hyundai has also promised a N Line version of the new Hyundai Tucson coming soon, but has not said anything about a hotter full “N” version of the redesigned Tucson. Since Hyundai is already using the naturally aspirated 2.5L engine in the Tucson at launch, it seems safe to reason that an N Line variant could use the turbocharged 2.5L as in the Sonata N Line.
    In stark contrast to the complex shapes of the exterior, the new Tucson’s interior is very simple and clean. Two silver trim lines extend from the sides of the center stack across both sides of the dashboard and onto the upper interior door trim. These trim lines integrate the infotainment and climate controls, air vents, as well as memory seats for well equipped models into a single sweeping design element. The available 10.25” touch screen sits atop an array of inductive redundant controls that control the sound system, in-car navigation, Bluetooth phone with Android Auto and Apple Carplay, tri-zone automatic climate control, and a suite of other technology.

    From the driver’s perspective, the new Tucson features a fully digital instrument cluster with a minimalist design that does away with the standard binnacle that most gauge clusters sit in. The leather wrapped steering wheel also has a minimalist design but contains all the usual controls you are used to, with an elegant satin chrome line outlining the lower part of the wheel.To drive the car, you can use the drive by wire with buttons similar to those found in the Palisade. There’s also an electronic parking brake and auto hold function, and the drive mode selector is a toggle at the front of the transmission select buttons.
    The new Tucson is a big step up for the compact crossover, with styling, technology, and performance enhancements that seem likely to set a higher bar for the segment, and continue a refreshing restyling of the Hyundai brand both inside and out.

    Sensuous Sportiness
    One of the biggest departures from the current Tucson is the bold exterior design, which follows a design language Hyundai calls “Sensuous Sportiness.”

    The daytime running lights are fully integrated into the largefront grille, and when the car is off, they are unnoticeable among the dark chrome features. However, when you start driving, the edges of the geometric designed grille light up in 5 distinct, jewel-like triangles of light on each side. Note that the actual LED headlights and turn signals are housed in separate units lower down the front bumper in a darkened housing that blends in seamlessly with a pair of small air ducts that supply cooling to the brakes and improved aerodynamics.

    I absolutely love those rear lights. Very cool but I'm a sucker for lighting details.

    This is gonna destroy sales charts.

    Has a nice stance, the front-end is a little "weird" but not as bad as the new Sonata, it will continue to sell well.

    I actually don't like the exterior...at all, there's a lot going on, as if someone at Hyundai looked at a Lykan Hypersport and said, "what if one of these banged a Mustang Mach E". And here we are...

    but the interior is pretty nice, Hyundai has been killing it with the interiors. But exterior, I don't know which is worse, this or the Kia Seltos.

    In a world of bland CUVs this stands out. Good or bad.

    This commits a bunch of design sins in my book. Over-styled and overstuffed which gives the car a clumsy bulky look. It's already out of vogue with newer designs more focused on lean styling and less jelly-bean proportions. It is eye-catching for sure, but it's pure cheeseball surfacing.

    But the good thing about Hyundai is that you only need to wait a few years for a completely new design. Detroit, it'll be a decade.

    Very distinctive, but, as you and as with many Hyundai's, I don't find all of the beautiful details to be cohesive, or simply to many beautiful details. But I'm certain the content blows away the competition and I'm certain this will sell well.

    I wonder what brands Hyundai draws from the most, meaning, who's lunch are they eating? I tend to think it's the Japanese brands, but don't know.

    Hyundai will not be ignored, and all of this has definitely worked for them. Compare that to the Ford Escape which is....thoughtful...but dull and lifeless like an appliance in every possible way. It's minimalist to the extreme and it looks cheaper than it is, even though it has those desirable modern proportions with great tech and space. When you're trying to appeal to customers paying the least for a car, it's good to make them feel like they are getting way more style and substance than the competition.

    I won't fault them because I think the styling is overdone - they are certainly trying and offering a lot. A lot of people will like the unique style.

    Re: All-New Hyundai Tucson From Every Angle

    I'm the most excited for this...more than I have been for any other compact crossover/suv in years.

    I'm not a huge fan of the interior but it is decent. Love the exterior and the powertrain options (at least on paper).

    Right now this is the far-and-away leader as a replacement for our CX-5 next spring...either in N-line form or hybrid...providing there are enough of them to go around (its been over a year now since launch of the Telluride and they are still in short supply..hopefully Hyundai-Kia can ramp up production).

    Depending on pricing (a little) and availability/production levels (a lot).

    I spoke 2 weeks ago to my local Hyundai/Kia dealership (where we got our Soul from) and I was told again that every Telluride they get in is sold upon arrival...and if you want a Seltos, they only have the lower trim models on the lot...every 1.6turbo model that arrives sells right away also.

    Re: All-New Hyundai Tucson From Every Angle

    The interior actually looks very nice - the biggest complaint I have is the gauge screen - I just don't like the integration or lack thereof - it looks too deeply set or something - there's something not right about that part. Ford definitely needs to improve.

    The exterior on the other hand. WTF?

    The front is ok, and the implementation of the split headlight design is well done - on par if not a bit better than Blazer's implementation (which I find the best of them all as far as doing that styling element goes).

    Beyond that, like I said WTF? There is zero consistency or congruence to the design at all - you have a curvy softer styled front end with triangular elements, then the side profile has 8 million harsh angular creases, with a curvy/graceful greenhouse/profile and chrome element. Then the rear get the now ubiquitous "me too" horizontal lightbar, and aside from the angular taillights, it reverts back to a curvy design but this time with diamond shapes in the lower bumper which are nowhere else in the design.

    Edge front cues + Lexus RX side + ____ rear = Tuscon.

    I can't speak to the nation as a whole, but I can speak for us and our neighborhood...

    We used to be an all-GM car family. In the past 6-8 years we transitioned to Mazda...now we are on to Hyundai/Kia vehicles. We have had 2 Kia Souls in a row...and our last mazda (CX-5) is likely to be replaced with a crossover from Hyundai or Kia next year.

    We also have 2 brand new (within the last 6 months) Hyundai Konas on our street. The guy 4 houses down traded in his Chevy Trax for it....and on the other street the Kona is replacing a very old Toyota Matrix.
