After recently completing the final testing, the 2021 Hyundai Tucson SUV has been revealed with a bold new look. It is the first Tucson to be developed under Hyundai’s new design identity: Sensuous Sportiness.

“The mission of ‘Sensuous Sportiness’ is to elevate the emotional qualities of automotive design. We want our customers to feel moved. With the all-new Tucson, we are introducing its ultimate evolution and a definitive statement about Hyundai’s unstoppable forward momentum,” said SangYup Lee, senior vice president and head of Hyundai Global Design Center.

Exterior

The all-new Tucson will be larger than the current model by being 20mm longer, 15mm wider, the wheelbase will be increased by 10mm, and it will have a much longer bonnet. A light bar runs the width of the boot, with claw-like patterns at either end. It’s not too dissimilar from a Ford Mustang.

Those angular jewel-like lights are really set to appear on the upcoming car. These lights are being called “Parametric Hidden Lights” by Hyundai, and they purportedly completely turn off to leave a flush angular grille design. From the rear, the lights are equally as stunning.

All-new Tucson customers can choose from nine exterior colours overall, including three new ones:

  • Shimmering Silver [NEW] with optional Dark Knight roof
  • Amazon Grey [NEW] with optional Phantom Black roof
  • Teal [NEW] with optional Phantom Black roof
  • Phantom Black with optional Dark Knight roof
  • Polar White with optional Phantom Black roof
  • Engine Red with optional Phantom Black roof
  • Sunset Red with optional Phantom Black roof
  • Silky Bronze with optional Dark Knight roof
  • Dark Knight with optional Phantom Black roof

Interior

You will have the choice between three interior colours for the Tucson:

  • One-tone Black (fabric or leather)
  • Two-tone Black and Moss Grey (fabric or leather)
  • Teal pack (fabric or leather)

The latest fully digital configurable dual cockpit consists of a new 10.25in open cluster and 10.25in AVN-T screen. This offers a personalised space that is intuitively optimised for a high-tech user experience. For example, the colour schemes of the cluster change depending on which drive mode is selected.

As a result of the all-new Tucson being larger than the current model, rear passengers can enjoy 26mm of additional legroom.

The all-new Tucson’s hidden type Multi-Air Mode technology consists of a combination of direct and indirect air vents for air conditioning and heating to create a more pleasant indoor environment with more gentle air flow, which is a first for any Hyundai vehicle.

Safety

The Tucson offers best-in-class advanced driver-assistance systems and an active safety package with a range of innovative features. It has been equipped with an enhanced seven-airbag system, Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist, Lane Following Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Smart Cruise Control Curve, Blind-spot Collision Avoidance Assist and for the first time in a compact SUV, Highway Driving Assist, which makes highway driving safer and more comfortable.

Driving and engines

Available with hybrid versions with automatic transmissions, the all-new Tucson backs-up its true SUV credentials with 4x4 capabilities, thanks to its new Terrain Mode selector.

Under the bonnet, you will have the choice of a mild-hybrid petrol with 148hp and 178hp, with the diesel variant producing 134hp. Those that want to avoid the electric versions, you can choose from a 148hp petrol and 113hp diesel model. Four-wheel drive is an optional extra on most powertrains, whilst a PHEV model and an N-Line version is due next year.
