2021 Hyundai Tucson, as impressive as we expected
The latest version features a brand new exterior and a thoroughly upgraded interior
After five years of consistently breaking its sales record, the Hyundai Tucson gives way to its inspired replacement. Experts say that the new Hyundai Tucson is arguably one of the most striking new SUVs revealed this year.
The 2021 Hyundai Tucson will come to the Korean market this month before reaching other markets. According to the British press, it will have a starting price of £25,000.
It has a completely revamped interior that’s nothing short of a radical departure over the outgoing model. The South Korean auto maker has incorporated sleeker design cues all around.
On the outside the design trades soft curves for angular surfaces with sharp lines and the Parametric Hidden Lights create quite a buzz as they are staked within the headlamp cluster in an classy fashion. They fire up when the SUV is turned on giving a rather dynamic presence to the new Tucson, therefore those lights are only visible when the car is running.
The dark geometric pattern enhances the wide appeal of the front fascia with a sharper profile otherwise. The lines of the dashboard blend seamlessly with the door cards while the center console does away with physical knobs and buttons.
2021 Hyundai Tucson will be offered in multiple powertrain choices. As for the performance, a 2.5-litre four-cylinder petrol engine kicks out 187 hp and 247 Nm. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission. A 1.6-litre turbocharged engine will be offered in hybrid and plug-in hybrid variants, developing up to 227 hp and 350 Nm.
